Depressing breakfast came from packets. Even the toast was factory shrink wrapped. Flavourless coffee and tea from cheap bags. At other towns in Basilicata the breakfast was much better. The modern glass entrance integrated well with this mansion.

We didn't book in advance and missed out on a triple room but the extremely helpful host provided us with a double and single for a very reasonable price. Rooms were comfortable and spotlessly clean and the breakfast was excellent (fresh cornetti). The hosts were charming and very helpful.

We were met with kindness and great patience by the proprietresses of this hotel, we speak no Italian, and they speak no English. That being said we were given an amazing room with a huge terrace that overlooked the town and countryside, and they made sure that we were well taken care of. You can tell this is a Family... More

They were there to help us with anything we needed, but they also let us just do our thing. The rooms are very basic, and ours was somewhat cold because we asked to... More

Its well situated , though I have to say that Venosa isn't the most interesting town in the world, and virtually all... More

Venosa, in northern Basilicata, is famous as the hometown of the Latin poet Horace, so it seems appropriate to stay at the Hotel Orazio (Italian for Horace), an old palazzo, once home to The Knights of Malta. It's very basic - but also very well located down a cobbled road off the main square - and it's like staying with... More
