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

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.

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
