We had an absolutely wonderful experience at this hotel with our one year old baby. The room was beautiful and clean. The staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. We would certainly return on our next visit to Matera.

We had two nights in a different hotel in Matera but were determined to seek out the spa at the Locanda di San Martino. It definitely did not disappoint although we thought 20 euros each as external guests was a little steep. Our journey from Lecce in Salento had been long, four hours including bus replacement service! We had booked... More

The hotel in itself is a good 3 star hotel; nothing more. Of course the location in the "Sasso Barisano" and the many rooms in characteristic caves is something special, but several other hotel in Matera offer the same type of accommodation. What was really disappointing is the way the managing staff treated us, I booked a junior suite at... More

The view from our room are nothing short of breathtaking. Wonderful position in the old town with easy excess. Great many restaurants around the area with a fantastic one just 30 mts away. The thermal baths are a must and very relaxing after a day's sight seeing.

We loved the hotel! It is such a unique experience staying in a cave for two nights. Our room was on the second floor (you can only access the rooms on the first and second floor by one lift) and we got to it by a small set of steps leading up to our own private patio with a sun... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of an organised tour group. Matera itself is a a fantastic unique town and the cave rooms at this hotel add to that unique experience. Our room was clean, comfortable and well appointed. The only complaint would be the lack of natural light. Wifi was strong and reliable. The breakfasts served in... More

Sassi is an amazing place to experience and I would certainly recommend it. While staying in a cave was a unique experiences but it did come with a few negatives. The staff at the hotel are friendly and it was easy to locate with a sat nav. You do need to pay for the valet parking though as all the... More

We stayed for two nights at this hotel and what an amazing treat. It was a great location to explore the sassi with many terrific restaurants and bars in walking distance. The best part about this hotel was the thermal bath. It was so peaceful and relaxing with no children allowed. Our room was also wonderful. The bathroom was a... More

This is a wonderful B&B located in the Sassi area of Matera. Beautifully clean, friendly service and we'll located to stroll around the tourist sites and restaurants.we didn't try the thermal baths as the weather was very hit, perhaps next time. The pool look very inviting and it is scrupulously clean. Breakfast was a good variety and plentiful to please... More

We had 2 nights at this hotel and were allocated room number 4 (cistern room). The rooms air conditioner was not up to the job of even cooling let alone removing the very high humidity from the room probably created by the cistern below. This was a hole in the floor covered by a sheet of glass for viewing -... More
