This is a difficult hotel to review. The rooms are made from the former cave dwellings of the Sassi in Matera, so each is different. I saw some that looked quite appealing. Our room was large but it was very poorly lit with flimsy plastic chairs. The bathroom had a small shower. Since the room is converted from a cave... More

I stay here every Springtime for business. Great rooms/suites. Phenomenal breakfast. Great meeting rooms. Lovely spa. Nice staff. Located in the Sassi and everything you could possibly need is within walking distance. I love this place.

I spent a night in Locanda di San Martino in July 2014 with my wife and three kids. We stayed in the suite as it was my wife's birthday and she was not aware we would overnight in Matera. The hotel is unique as it is pratically situated in a cave so are the rooms. Our rooms was very big... More

We recently stayed at Locanda di San Martino as part of a Rick Steves tour in Sep-2014. It was a fabulous experience. The hotel is located within the Sassi region of Matera, which is a Unesco World Heritage site: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sassi_di_Matera. This is not a hotel for people looking for an American-style cookie cutter hotel. But, if you want to step... More

Matera is a neat town and why not stay in the center of i sasi? This hotel room was just the coolest ever built into the sides of caves and the pool / spa below in the old water cisterns were a treat for tired bodies. Go to this area now before more people find out about it. We had... More

We had a small,dark but nice room. Bathroom was spacious and clean.I tried to sleep on bed,but the mattress was so terrible sleep was impossible.They said nothing could be done because they were full up. My back hurt for four days. The second night, I sat in a chair. I was glad when our tour left.

We didn't stay in the hotel; just visited the spa. They give priority use to guests of the hotel, of course, but it's possible to pay 20E to visit in quiet times. We arranged our visit in advance by dropping by the reception. The spa is nice enough, but the pool is of course the main attraction - set as... More

Our first room (33) had a damp mustiness to it. Well, we are staying in a cave, we thought. On investigation it turns out not all cave rooms are damp, so if you find a de-humidifier in your room you might like to ask for a move (They moved us the next day); My tip to the hotel - take... More

Cool place. We got the room under the street, when others on our tour got view rooms. Hmmmmph. The hot pool is lovely but expensive and you have to wear.a.swim cap. Ugh. The sassy is interesting but quite gentrified.
