I've never had to post a negative review, but feel that I must warn others. While this is a very cool looking hotel room, and the rooms are clean, the staff (owner?) leaves something to be desired. We stayed one night in our Cave Suite room. The room was large and well appointed. We enjoyed our stay, but sadly upon... More

Dear reviewer, we are glad to know that you appreciate your visit in our hotel. For what concerns the screen door, we need to clarify that it was installed just one month ago, so it was completely new and it had not “weak spot”. Fortunately, we’ve got a supervisory camera that filmed you forcing the opening of the screen door... More

The hotel has the charm of old buildings and has a wonderful location in the middle of the old town. The staff was very helpful, breakfast was outstanding and the coffee remarkable! We stayed only one night and left the next day but we would love to visit again.

The room was perfect and was more than my expectation, clean, white leather couch, chair the bed was so comfortable. The staff where friendly. We had a nice breakfast there as well. Great location in The Sassi parking across the street which is a great feature. This area is not to be missed and if you are going to stay... More

I loved our stay at the Caveoso and hope to be back again next time I am in Italy - Matera itself is a wonderful place and I want to see more of it. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was excellent! I would recommend it to anyone wanting something atmospheric and a little different.

Sadly, the experience at this beautiful property is ruined by a dishonest owner. This was my third visit to this hotel, and I will never return. Too many bad experiences! The original quote was raised by 40 Euros per room. I later found a nicer cave hotel with pleasant staff for half the price. The staff at Caveoso are kind,... More

An affordable luxury, Caveosi Hotel offers smart accomodation and a delicious breakfast. I loved our room with decorations and furnishing that go well with the "cave" type hotel. The hotel assisted us graciously during our stay. Grazie a voi!

We had wanted to stay in a "sassi" hotel in Matera, and this hotel was right in the sassi. The room was attractively furnished, reasonably spacious and clean, and bath was clean and modern. It would have been perfect without the man at the front desk (don't know if he was owner or employee). He was very unpleasant; in fact... More

Matera is such an unusual and unbelievably fantastic place but the highlight of our visit was when I first stepped inside our `cave' room. I was simply overwhelmed as it was truly and absolutely fabulous!!!! Unfortunately we stayed during Easter 2013 when the weather was unseasonably cold and as a result the room felt quite cold and damp but this... More

Confirming what has been written from others ! Unfortunately we caught not the best weather at easter, so we couldn't enjoy the court yard, lounging under the stars (which must be very nice). Nothing per persons which prefer perfect boringness to a very original place like all Matera (who wasn't there cannot even imagine how different Matera is ! )... More

Quite easily one of the most sumptuous and unusual hotel "rooms" we have ever stayed in, and in the most stunning town. We thoroughally enjoyed our couple of days in Matera. Its also the first time we've seen a non-functioning TV set fixed with a quick blast from a hair dryer! Agreeing with other guests comments, the breakfast was little... More
