My husband and I loved our cave room! It was very nicely furnished with a comfy bed and little kitchenette. It was the perfect place to rest our heads and feet after exploring Matera. The hotel staff was very nice and accommodating!

Booked this online and the place is just like stated. We stayed in one of the caves, which had its own kitchen (we didnt use this) Very clean, tidy and modern loved it. It is in the middle of the cave town so lots to see round it.

The rooms are the original cave dwellings which have been restored into interesting and atmospheric rooms. The fittings were of high quality, the rooms are quiet and comfortable. Highly recommended and worth visiting Matera just to stay in them

We stayed in the Bifora suite at the end of May for a couple of days. We would have loved to stay longer but they were booked up. Alessandra and Gianluca are terrific. First--Matera is a must see place. I would go before it gets too touristy. I fear that in 10 years, the charm will be gone and many... More

We stayed in the Chimera suite for two nights and loved it! The room was a perfect size, and the location was fabulous - close to everything you want to see in Matera. The room was set up with a kitchenette complete with pots, pans and a two cup espresso maker. The shower was to die for! Plus there was... More

Was relatively easy to find the office and parking was available. The rooms are separate from the office, a 150 metre walk mostly on steps but fun. We looked at three rooms available and chose the smallest (and cheapest) which was still reasonably spacious and because we were there after the holiday season, was excellent value. Breakfast was supplied in... More

The idea of living in a cave is great; this cave, though, had some problems. The location of this residence is excellent. It's a little hard to find, but one can easily walk all around the old city from it. (Beware, there are LOTS of steps everywhere.) I don't know how this place compares to others in town, but, seeing... More

We stayed four nights of our holiday here and thoroughly enjoyed Matera and the apartment San Giorgio. The apartment was clean and well-stocked for breakfast items. The location was quiet and we felt at home here. There were places to eat within walking distance. We did have trouble finding the street as on arrival we did not realise that we... More

The place is clean and it,s a pretty unique experience to stay in a cave ( sassi). The owner is very nice and friendly. It was a bit hard to get to the place when driving as you need to get the right road to get near it. The direction was pretty good but we were worried about getting a... More

Been there two times. One of my fav places ever. Love the self cathering rooms: warm, cozy, isolated. Perfect if ur looking for privacy and an old fashioned environment. Elegant, classy. Ask for a room with bath tub. Matera is one of the most beautiful places in Italy probably, but you will desire not to leave the room once you're... More
