Very nice hotel and very friendly and helpful personnel. Good breakfast. It has few rooms with nice style. It's not in the centre but it's reachable walking even if the road is not so nice for the evening.

Matera is a spectacular place and I was sorry we were here just for one day. The hotel was good value and the staff very helpful. We had a nice room with a large outside terrace with two sofas to sit on. It is about 10 to 15 mins walk into the city. Breakfast was nice. Good for 1 to... More

The hotel staff really couldn't have been friendlier! We stayed in the loft rooms which were charming and absolutely spotless. Breakfast was lovely. The hotel is a little out of the town centre, we got a taxi to the sassi. Thoroughly recommended!

Would agree with all the good points already raised in previous reviews. It's basically an upmarket guest house, does not pretend to be an hotel and when we did price comparisons it fared well. If you want to pay a lot more to sleep in an updated cave in the Sassi with nowhere to park close by then try somewhere... More

Some aspects of this hotel were lovely so I'll list those first: nice staff, comfy beds, good shower, mainly large rooms, good safe parking (rare in Matera), nice pool although we didn't use it, nice garden. Good breakfast. Nowhere inside to sit and relax other than in the rooms. But there were some major drawbacks. The area is scruffy and... More

Quiet location a short stroll from the town. Wonderful rooms with lovely windows and balconies. Under floor air conditioning completely silent and so effective. Reception staff extremely helpful esp when I arrived ahead of check in time. Good continental breakfast. Lovely pool and small garden area although opening times a little restricted especially in the mornings.

Nice hotel with very friendly staff and the pool was a bonus. The only downfall was the toilet smelled of urine. The breakfast was basic but enough. Tranquil location, yet within easy walking distance to the beautiful city of Matera. Would recommend.

We stayed for three nights as part of our honeymoon and would thoroughly recommend a visit to Matera - it is stunning. We had an extremely comfortable stay at Hotel Ridola.

The hotel is efficient looking. The pool is by the front door in the sun. The breakfast area is plastic tables in the lobby. The room was a good size. The cooling is in the floor. Consequently there is no fan circulation. The rubber or plastic mattress cover made for hot sleeping. The electricity went out in the middle of... More

Recently returned from a trip here. A delightful hotel with extremely helpful staff some of whom spoke English. This was once the towns telephone exchange and has been carefully converted by the present owner. The hotel is approx 5 minutes walk from the town and is a quiet oasis away from the noise and bustle of the traffic. Please note... More
