We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in January. The weather outside was cold and damp, but we were warm and cozy inside. In fact, our room was a little too warm the first night, and we asked them to turn off the towel warmer in the bath room! We had a quad room, and it was spotlessly clean,... More

A fabulous hotel experience! We loved staying in this cave hotel! I can't imagine we will ever have the opportunity to stay again in a cave, never mind one that is so well appointed. Our cave slept 4 and had outside windows and a door to the terrace. The private bathroom was spacious. Great wifi. Beautifully presented breakfast buffet, European... More

Since I was traveling solo, I opted for a twin bed room with a view. The view from my front door had a near unobstructed view of the Sassi and it was absolutely beautiful, although my room wasn't really a cave like many of the other guests. The room was very clean, the staff was extremely polite and helpful, the... More

We as a family only stayed for one night,so there are good and bad things. The cave suite lovely and big if it was not damp and smelled like it too.One really has to know where the hotel is otherwise you will have problems in this beautiful rabbit warren,we thought the Sassi was beatiful and romantic. There was no tea... More

I've been in unique hotels all over the world from luxury tents in Jordan to castles in Ireland and this certainly ranks among the more interesting and lovely. My husband and I stumbled into Matera during the Presepe Vivente, a living nativity that takes place throughout the city over the Christmas season. Getting to the hotel was quite the adventure...

Great city, wonderful place to spend a few days. The Locanda is an outstanding place, rooms caved in the mountain, swimming pool in a cave with soft lights. People very welcoming and affordable prices. Romantic overall!!

Location of this hotel is perfect! Though situated within the Sassi, it is also very near their 'new town' - central Piazza Vittorio. You get the best of both world. The room we stayed in was lovely, as you can imagine... Cave liked. It was spacious, comfortable and clean. Service staff were helpful and friendly. From our room entrance, we... More

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
