This hotel was in a great location just a short walk from the Sassi and town. Our room, bathroom and the common areas were modern, spacious and beautifully decorated. Everything about this hotel was "boutique" - toiletries, linens and breakfast (which included farm fresh ricotta and honey). Leonardo and Marcella were incredibly helpful and friendly. We wish we could have... More

The manager was incredibly helpful and friendly. He pointed us to the right restaurants and the nicest places to visit. The hotel itself is also perfect. The rooms are modern, clean and spacious. The breakfast is great and the location is right near the sassi. We would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Matera.

Close to the Sassi & the old town this delightful,friendly hotel was ideal for our 3 day stay in Matera. It was very clean & spacious in an interesting old building, imaginatively converted into this hotel. We would highly recommend staying here if you are in the area.

We had a very pleasant stay in this small hotel in the old part of Matera. Residence del Casalnuova is comfortable, clean and smart and very close to the Sassi Caveoso, making it an ideal place to stay. We enjoyed it so much we would have liked to stay another night except that we had booked elsewhere and needed to... More

Nice and clean rooms, very good location next to Sassi Caveoso and walking distance from town center, but above all Leonardo (owner) hospitality and information made our visit in Matera unforgettable. Improvement suggestion: the shower in the bath is only "hand-shower" and we prefer much more an high shower head attachable to the wall.

Although not our first choice, which was full, we liked this B&B so much we stayed for two nights instead of one. Our 'host' was waiting for us outside, showed us two rooms and carried the luggage to our chosen room. He then made us a drink, provided a local map and told us about the town and the area.... More

We stayed in this place in 2007. There were 5 of us at the time and we had two ground floor rooms and one first floor room. This time there were 3 of us and we had a first floor room. I would have preferred a ground floor room as one of the travelers was 86 years old. Having said... More

We very much enjoyed Casalnuovo. At first we had thought there would be a view of the sassi, but when we realized that the walk was just across the street we quickly adjusted. We wanted a kitchen, and only a short walk away was a good fruttivendelo with especially good asparagus. Our room had an excellent bed, a table with... More
