Matera is a truly wonderful place to visit and this hotel is a perfect place to stay - relatively easy to find and with the most stunning view from our room we have ever had! We booked a "room" and were given a small apartment with 2 bedroom areas so it felt very spacious. Wonderfully comfortable bed, and a small... More

Friendly and helpful reception staff. Fantastic, comfortable suite, with all amenities and a great terrace with the best views of Matera. Breakfast was very good and varied. Parking service available to take the stress out of driving in the town. What more could you ask for?

This is beautiful hotel in a stunning location overlooking the old Sassi center of town. The views from the lovely patios are spectacular. It was a great experience to sleep in cave that had been re-purposed from one of the old ancient residences. The staff were very helpful and the rooms were immaculate and equipped with a quiet A/C system.... More

When we arrived in Matera we followed the brown sign for Sassi and around a corner we came into a fairy-tale. Looking for a hotel, we almost directly found Fra i Sassi. They had a room for us in their really beautifull hotel. The daughter of the owner did a very good job as interiour designer. Seldom I saw such... More

Spent 3 nights here on our Italian trip. We did struggle to find it initially, probably as we followed some Google map instructions. However, it was worth it. The rooms are rustic- it's a cave, what do you expect, but spacious, nicely furnished, very clean, with a really cleverly designed en suite shower room. There is also air conditioning- bonus...
