Hotel has a centrally and good location. Parking nearby. Rooms quit big but not so cosy. Staff at reception not friendly, as a client you do not feel welcome. Breakfast terrible, no cheese, meat, fruit only a big selection of many croissants.

I slept in the room N° 6. It has two environments, the first with bedroom and the second with a sitting room view "Sassi". The room was very clean, especially the bathroom. Good breakfast with typical products of Matera ("Focacia and bread of Matera") Centrally located in the main square of the "Sassi" with free parking near the hotel. I... More

We were here last week in october and the city of matera is great, but the room was very old fashioned. The mini bar was empty and the interior lacked any form of decoration and was not in the mountain itself. Furthermore the reception was not friendly and the breakfast was terrible, nothing was fresh and lacked any sausages or... More

Ir you are a traveller looking for that something different when searching for hotels, look no further. Located inside the medieval town and partially set inside the caves that this town is known for, you are in the midst of everything. From here you can walk around the historic part and great restaurants are close by. The rooms are absolutely... More

It could be a very nice hotel, but if you get wrong people at reception you can get bad experience. He tried to give me a standard room instead of suite booked, he never help to bring the bags in the room. But I was complaining and I've got right room finally. Fortunately, later come to reception a young kind... More

The older man at reception is dismissive, unhelpful & unpleasant - there was no help offered with luggage, the wifi doesnt work, the linen wasnt changed, there is no onsite parking as advertised on their website - we were told to park "down the road" & got a parking ticket - it is a central location but so are a...

Though I have visited Italy several times, I had never been to Matera in the Puglia region. A UNESCO World Heritage site (http://whc.unesco.org/fr/list/670) and definitely a place to visit. Matera is a place characterized by many and old cave-dwellings and this hotel is in the cave-district (the 'sassi') and has several cave rooms. Very interesting place and right in the... More

We stayed at this place for one of the nights we were in matera because the place we wanted originally couldn't accomodate us for that night. We were extremely happy with our experience as the people running this place were extremely helpful and hospitable plus the room was great. Highly recommended.

A memorable experience staying in a 'cave' room nicely fitted out and well situated for exploring a fascinating town. Grouchy manager more than compensated for by lovely woman making excellent coffee and great breakfast spread - we were allowed to take some pizza and biscuits for our day's wandering. Free parking is in a nearby square so don't take too... More
