As long as you can walk roughly the kilometre distance from the hotel to Centro Storico you will be happy staying here. Easy to park the car in the hotel so safe and secure. The rooms are not large but very well appointed and comfortable. Breakfast is adequate, plenty of fresh fruit every day, and the cake and croissants are... More

Matera is an unbelievable site. Our stay for two nights at the Ridola relais hotel was delightful. Might have enjoyed it even more if we had been willing to spend less time in the fascinating city. Best breakfast buffet with a staff willing to keep making cappuccini! The on site carpark was also a relief. Small hotel that punches way... More

A truly beautiful, cosy place. An historic home tastefully decorated. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast is basic but acceptable. The shopping district is only a short walk. A visit to the historic centre is a must. Lots of stairs, wear comfortable footwear.

The rooms are confortable, the breakfast could be better, the hotel is in the upper, so, to go to the city center you may bl downhill. The staf is good. The bathrom is small but the water is in a good temperature.

We loved every minute of our stay from the lovingly restored rooms to the beautiful grounds to the refreshing and clean pool to the outstanding staff.

My mother and I stayed for 6 nights. It was a perfect base for visiting Matera and the rest of Basilicata. We chose it as we could easily park the car and it was ideal. The ground floor twin room was perfect and the garden and pool were attractive and great to relax by on a couple of mornings. The... More

Some twenty minutes walk from the fascinating old town of Matera, this quiet, intimate hotel is perfect for those wishing for a good base outside town with free parking and comfortable surroundings. Breakfast is adequate and the staff very helpful and pleasant. No restaurant but plenty of good places to eat in Matera. The room was comfortable, en suite shower... More

I booked this hotel because we were travelling by car and I wanted somewhere to park and have the car secure. It is a little walk (about 750 meters) from the main town area but is on a hill with pleasant views. The room was spotless, the bed comfy and the shower excellent. Breakfast was very nice without being extravagant.... More

This was a perfect spot to stay in Matera, close to everything, yet enough removed to be quiet & serene. Lovely breakfast, a welcoming gift, accommodating staff, comfortable & nicely decorated. Bella!
