I had a tour of this hotel, visited 3 rooms. There were so much humidity in each room! Room/cave 13 and 14 are the deluxe ones, providing you in-cave experience, yet with modern furniture and it looks quite beautiful. However it's so humid, I can't imagine staying there even for one night! And by the way, the humidifier works quite... More

The hotel was a little difficult to find but, the gentleman at the reception desk talked me through a phone call with directions. The cave suite number 14 was beautiful. Tastefully furnished and clean.My daughter and I enjoyed the unusual accommodations. It is also in a great location.just footsteps away from the piazza. Plenty of dining choices close by as... More

We stayed here in August 2015, in two rooms. Our room (Room 1) was excellent - being part of a cave (in the bathroom) and was very well appointed. the only let down was the A/C which was not that efficient. The hotel itself is in a fabulous location in the centre of Matera, parking is nearby (TIP don't follow... More

We travelled to Matera in search of my husband's roots, and thought it would be cool to stay in a "cave" hotel. The Caveoso is in a perfect location for exploring this ancient and stunning city, with plenty of places to eat close by. As others have said, staying in a cave has its limits with darkness and dampness, but... More

This hotel has a great location and offers wonderful views. It is emblematic of the town, an historic cave town well worth the visit. The room itself was comfortable and the very nice woman who served breakfast in the morning made all feel welcome. We found our bathroom shower rather moldy around the outside edges and think it is time... More

So, you want to stay in a cave. There are two inherent drawbacks: 1. Caves are damp. 2. Caves are dark. This hotel did their best to mitigate both of these problems- our room had 2 dehumidifiers and many lights all around, but the basic problems are still there to some extent. As you would expect, the rooms have some... More

We visited Matera for a day and stayed overnight at the Caveosso in the middle of a visit to friends in Calomezzati, a couple of hours away. Matera is supposedly one of the longest continually inhabited towns in the world and we thought it would be worth a visit. We booked the Caveosso as it is mostly built into the... More

This is definitely a querky hotel in a fantastic spot. Matera was an amazing place and I would not have wanted to stay anywhere else given the history of the place. Having a cave for the night is a real experience, but we did find it a little damp, so wouldn't like to be staying for too long!

Really annoyed as the description on the website said nothing about having to park your car in a public carpark about 200 metres away...and that you have to lug your luggage from the road, over cobble stones and up stairs to get there.....the wifi was hopeless...but that's typical in a lot of hotels.

10 minute walk to hotel from where you first park, then good skills required to find hotel car park. Only one of the three staff on reception was friendly and very helpful. Good fun to stay in a cave and great views of the Sassi from the Piazza. No wifi or mobile phone signal in the room but what do... More
