Very nice hotel right in the middle of the Sassi. It has Thermae Romanae an experience you definitely have to go through, very enjoyable. Nice rooms, staff is very kind and speaks fluently several languages. The breakfast area is also top with a very good choice of servings. If you come by car they have a valet service worth paying...

A few steps down from the main square is this renovated series of caves that makes for a really neat hotel with all the amenites you might want, including a spa.Comfortable rooms, laundry service, nice view upwards of the historic town.

Definitely the most unusual and interesting hotel I have stayed in. A deconsecrated church, It is locked onto the cliff face where caves have been carved and other little dwellings have been incorporated into the hotel so there are lots of stairs and narrow external passageways. Fascinating. Our room was stand alone with a little terrace outside and an amazing... More

Stayed here on a Friday night with my sister. We drove in by car, and the GPS got us there no problem, even through the winding streets of Matera. A parking attendant met us on the street and parked our car while we checked in. The employees spoke very good english, so check in was a breeze. The hotel room... More

This cave hotel is totally unique. The rooms are all different. Down the stairs from the lobby, you will find the spa pool. Wow is this neat. A Cave pool. Our room had some great views but 161 steps to get to it.

We stayed in Matera at the Locanda di San Martino for three nights in April. Front desk are very helpful and it was easy to get situated in our room. We booked a Junior Suite. Room itself was a very good size. Bathroom on the smaller side, and unfortunately besides the night tables, there was no drawer space at all.... More

We drove to Matera, found a parking space, and started walking, looking for our hotel. On the street, a finely-dressed gentleman asked if he could be of assistance (we may have looked lost) and we told him we were looking for our hotel - the name of which I couldn't remember. He patiently waited while I dug it out of... More

This hotel is located in the old part of Matera, down a narrow dead end road. Finding this hotel without a sat nav would be a challenge if you are not used to driving in old Italian towns. I used google street view to identify way points. This made to drive to and from the hotel easier. From what I... More

Matera is a town of buildings built into the limestone rocks and caves, and this hotel is a series of those buildings. The rooms are not fancy five-star -- that would be missing the point - but they are clean and comfortable, and well you step out of the room (no hallways here...), you are right in the heart of...

If you're not used to driving, let alone on the wrong side of the road, finding the Locanda di San Martino down the narrow streets of Matera isn't easy. But at least I didn't have to worry about parking because, for a fee, the hotel arranges for a garage to come and pick the car up for you, park it... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Locanda di San Martino lies in the heart of Matera's Sassi Historical District, and at the same time it is conveniently located at a very short distance (100 meters) from the city center. The Locanda radiates outward from the deconsecrated church of San Martino and the street of the same name, through a series of balconies that enjoy a sunny exposure and a wonderful view of the Sasso Barisano. There are twenty-two guest rooms situated on four levels, renovated with the greatest care in order to respect their original forms as single homes. ... more   less
