We were told 5 days prior to our arrival (whilst we were already travelling os) that our room would no longer be provided due to construction problems. We understand residence sometimes have problems however we were extremely surprised that you did not...

Matera is not to be missed! Sassolino B&B was perfect for our 2 night stay in Matera. Perfectly located within the Sasso Caveoso. We were able to drive right to the front of the B&B which was so convenient with our luggage. Parking is not a problem, at the end of the street there is a small parking area near...

Located in the heart of Sasso Caveoso is a great base for walking around Matera. Free parking space is available along the street. Room was comfortable, breakfast was ok. On the downside: We had the upper room and it had actually no windows (except for the 'internal' window facing the breakfast room), which made the ventilation problematic - it was...

“Both rooms are good.”
 of 5 bubbles Wightrobin, May 2, 2015 | Read review
“Sassolino B&B has only 2 rooms. The first floor room has a window to the outside and a small adjoining bathroom(If you are at all claustrophobic go for the second floor, the shower is tiny on the first floor). Second floor has a larger room with no outside window and the bathroom is down the flight of stairs, but completely private. Either room would be fine. the second floor room has the larger bathroom.”

“Take a look at the photos on line. The upper room has a wall of milk glass to let in light, but no view. The lower room has a small window with view. Access to the shared outer room means a terrific view of the sassi and town. We met wonderful, interesting travelers staying in the other room.”
