We just had a wonderful stay at the Palazzo Gattini, which in the best sense of the word is a class act. We doubt that real royalty experiences such good service. Each room is different and our room (211) was a gem. We've never commented on an elevator before, but the Gattini's is simply gorgeous. We could list many things... More

We visited in August. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Our bedrooms were magnificent and we couldn't fault this hotel. The breakfast was delicious too. The location is in the older part of town and has great views of the caves. Initially the drive into Matera is tricky and it's hard to imagine a gem of a hotel nestled... More

Matera might be one of those places you have never heard of, but will soon due to Unesco's efforts to preserve and promote this area's unique heritage. When you do visit do splurge and stay at the Gattini and it is absolutely beautiful in every way. Rooms are huge and extremely well appointed, staff is warm and welcoming and always... More

My room (201) in this hotel was stunning. I never stay at hotels of this star-rating/caliber so even though I was expected to be amazed, it even exceeded that. Rather than try to describe what the room looked like, I've attached some photos. The only thing the room lacked was a view; however, the view from the outside patio overlooking... More

Palazzo Gattini was one of the most beautiful places we stayed at while visiting Italy. The staff was outstanding and attentive, the rooms were large and beautifully decorated and the location was perfect in the city. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Palazzo Gattini to anyone who wants to visit the charming city of Matera.
