What a unique and fabulously located hotel. Most of the rooms are built into caves that originally served as a church. The décor is beautiful and the staff were so welcoming; the receptionist was so happy and couldn't have been more helpful - we had to congratulate her on her attitude! The delicious and comprehensive breakfast served in the foyer... More

This small Boutique Hotel is very unusual as it is in a former church which is beautifully and with a lot of taste designed into s small hotel. the rooms tell that it was a church before, raw stone and the room filled with modern minimalized design interior. But....the maintance of the place needs to be improved. In my room... More

Stayed at L'hotel for just one night in July and could kick myself for not booking a longer stay. Confusing to find as signage is minimal and unaware of on site garage we parked a few streets away. Rolling suitcases over cobbles we over shot the street but a super helpful local gave us directions. Stairs were a challenge but... More

Mixed feelings about this place. I applaud the creativity of converting an old church into an hotel - very quaint - but . . . all rooms are different - some are sensational, others are to be avoided. I agree with an earlier reviewer about room 1002. It's on 2 levels, yes, but try carrying a suitcase, or even a... More

Our third stay in this fantastic hotel. It was topped by staying in their latest suite - just amazing design with such style. On three levels from ground floor upwards. Ground floor has lounge area and large separate waterfall shower and huge stone bath, bidet, toilet etc area. First floor with large comfortable bed and tv etc and second floor... More

Beautiful hotel, very nice staff. The decor is beautiful and the rooms are gorgeous and really clean. The hotel is very well located in Matera. The view is splendide at night from the terrasse. - we would love to come again

Stayed in room 1002. Described as 'on 2 levels'. It certainly is! A very narrow and steep spiral staircase leads to the bed and is not suitable for the less able. Breakfast average with no ham or cheese (except already in the croissants) and no fresh tomatoes or hard boiled eggs. Coffee freshly made, though. No need to use their... More

My husband, son, and I went to Matera in May of 2013. We stayed at L'Hotel in Pietra and loved our visit. The architecture and interior design is outstanding. We stayed in Suite 1004, a loft room with a King bed. We had plenty of space and always enjoyed coming back to our room to relax after checking out the... More

We (family with 2 boys) stayed one night in this hotel last summer. Perfectly located, the hotel is an old church built in the rocks. Very spacious room, decorated and furnished with great style, and an original large bathroom in the rocks. Staff at the reception are very helpfull, friendly and fluent english speaking. Great jazz or easy listening piano... More

My husband and I and our two grown sons and wives stayed at this hotel in late June and couldn't have been happier. Like another reviewer, the two of us stayed in room 1003 ( I'm glad the reviewer remembered the number) which had a second level sitting area with TV, which we didn't use, and a third level outdoor...
