This hotel is the place to stay, if you visit Matera. Nice location close to the main square of the city. Rooms are build into the old caves, and has wifi, A/C and tv. However there is no need for a tv; enjoy the silence 🙂 Everything is nicely designed to fit into the old walls of the cave. We... More

We had the pleasure of visiting Matera and stayed in the Locanda di San Martino. Matera is not the easiest place to get to but is well worth the effort. We took a very nice modern train from Bari to Matera and upon arrival a 10 Euro taxi to the hotel. The hotel is charming. The front staff was helpful... More

The rooms are very clean and modern. Memory foam mattresses and pillows make for a great sleep. The location is a great part of the Sassi - quiet but not isolated, and beautiful at night. There was one downside for us. We spoke to a couple who came from another hotel to use the thermae pool and were charged 15... More

This place must be seen to be believed. The rooms are enchanting in a cave like environment. Absolutely stunning views.I could not fault this hotel.maybe the reception area was small in peak check out times but thats the only fault.I highly recommend staying here to experience the real matera.

A charming cave hotel. The hotel is located in the central part of Sassi. We stayed in a suite type room which is good for four person, I super love the stair that will bring you up to the extra two junior beds. Our room was clean and spacious and we love the hydromassage tub in our bathroom. We drove... More

This is my favorite hotel in the world. Our room was a triple in a large cave room and it was really fantastic. Excellent view out our front door. I loved the subterranean pool, it was the best thing I did on my trip. I was disappointed it was 18 yrs and over because I have a 14 yr old... More

Topnotch beautiful family owned hotel centrally located in sassi with wonderful service. We had our 22 year old son with us in same room but was perfect because his bed was in a separate alcove area. The view from our 3rd floor room had a gorgeous vista of the opposite hill's sassi. Fabulous breakfasts and the thermae were a lovely... More

This hotel is very unique! We enjoyed our stay there and know we will not find another hotel like this. The location was perfect, the rooms were very clean, the staff was friendly and MORE than accommodating. Our room was very private and quiet. We did not use the pool simply because we ran short on time. Our entire party... More

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...

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
