A beautifully located hotel in Matera with amazing views. Superclean and comfortable rooms. We stayed here with our two young daughters and had a perfect two night stay. Would recommend a stay in Sassi as this is an amazing experience! The views from the hotel are stunning.

The hotel is built into a rock. The ample and comfortable rooms have a terrace with a spectacular view of old town Matera. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is a tray with fresh delicacies on a set ready for you in the reception room. Cars must be parked in modern Matera but there is a shuttle service.

This hotel is superb. We stayed in a cave room that was very spacious and comfortable. The views from the terrace are probably the best in matera and stunning. Delightful little breakfast room and right in the heart of the main tourist area. The gentleman on reception booked us a tour by ape which was a truly great way to see matera. The restaurants nearby that we visited were all excellent. Would definitely go back
