“Excellent rooms, disappointing breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2009

If you agree a B&B should offer a good room and a great breakfast you'll find at "Le Dodici lune" a room well over your wildest expectation, but get prepared for a disappointing, poor breakfast (it is so even for the - low - italian standards). Our room (a three-beds one) was an enormous typical Matera cave ("sassi")and tastefully decorated. The entire building is a B&B establishment and features bigger rooms and suites and is managed by friendly staff. Be prepared to climb hundreds of steps with your luggages, but that's all about historical centr of Matera.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2008

We just returned from a 6 week driving tour through Southern Italy. Matera was one of our favourite cities, and Le Dodice Lune was one of our favourite places to stay. The hotel is located right in the Sassi, and the rooms, although modern, with all amenities, are created from caves cut out of the rock. The owner. Giuseppi, spoke excellent English, and he went out of his way to assist us with suggestions for exploring the town and neighbouring areas. The restaurant is excellent. The rates are very reasonable, and there is free parking just down the hill from the hotel. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.
