Great location at the end of the town. Really magical. Fantastic views. Very nice service - they came and picked me up in my car and took me somewhere where I could park it for free. Very nice room however: - bathroom needs some updating. The bathtub is chipped, the toilet seat is broken and smells of urine - the... More

We loved the location of this hotel from the moment we arrived! If you can walk from wherever you park, its really fun and scenic, though they offer to pick you up and drive you in a small cart. My kids were so excited to stay in a cave, though one of the staff told me many people prefer the... More

We stayed in the superior triple room for 3 people which could easily fit 5 people. The room is on 2 floors and is modern, spacious, very clean and comfortable. The view from the hotel room is breath taking during the day and at night. Its easy to get to all areas of Matera from the hotel. The hotel staff... More

Hotel Basiliani is in a fabulous location and is extremely comfortable. The staff is welcoming and helpful. The modern design rooms are wonderfully laid out and appealing. The views are among the best to be had in Matera, I would say. There are fantastic and reasonably priced restaurants and shops close by. This was my second visit there in the... More

Perched on the edge of the massive ravine passing along the edge of Matera, this hotel will not disappoint. Yes, it is a bit difficult to find, but you will be staying in a place off the beaten path so close to the ancient cave dwellings that they will be all you see out your window. Bring hiking boots to... More

Lovely welcome and offer for collection of bags from our car. Great spacious rooms and my kids loved the sofas and chairs that lit up. Lots of room and great views. Perfect Buffet breakfast with lovely frothy cappuccino. The sign for the hotel is small but if you have a rough idea about what the hotel looks like before you... More

I with a group of 18 people visited Matera and hotel Basiliani for a 2 nite staying. A hotel with spartan but spacious rooms. Incredible, breathtaking views from our room. Great breakfast and excellent service. Grazie. Susan A.

If you visit the wonderful city of Matera you really should stay in the sassi area. After all, this is what makes Matera so different from other cities, both in Italy and worldwide. Given that starting point, I can highly recommend the Basilicata Hotel. Here you have the chance to live in a boutique cave for a while! Ours was... More

Matera is a one of kind place that I highly recommend. The access to Hotel Basiliani is difficult at best. We had a two night reservation and elected to leave after the first night because access was so inconvenient. A few days before we arrived, we received an email from the hotel telling us to park over a mile away... More

What a gem of a place. Five nights here and it was amazing. Staff so very helpful. Room with a view! Beautiful. I couldn't wait to get out of bed and open the windows as the views and Matera are stunning. So quiet and peaceful. We would certainly stay here again. We had everything we needed here. We parked our... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The hotel is located in the heart of Sasso Caveoso, Matera. It has opened in 2010. There are eleven large rooms with independent access and all the modern technological comforts. They are partly built and partly caved out of the local tufa stone. They evoke the fascination of the prehistoric caves that you can see from the windows on the opposite Murgia plateau, site of the Archaelogical Park of Rupestrian Churches. ... more   less
