Sassi di Matera is a unique place that will leave anyone who visits it completely speechless and the hotel is something spectacular, we wish we have stayed more then a day. The owner and his family plus the staff are so kind and welcoming. We will for sure come back to visit this amazing place one more time

This is an awesome place to stay. I just stayed there for 2 days and wished it would have been weeks. The hotel is buit into the rocks of Matera with a stunning view onto the old part of Matera. The rooms are built as seperate cabins into the existing village structure. Each room is like a small house on... More

From the moment we arrived the staff was extremely helpful getting us situated, and offering any assistance with the room, tours and restaurants. Room was large, well furnished and very comfortable. Breakfast was wonderful and better than most typical Italian breakfasts. Servers were most attentive.

We visited on our honeymoon for two nights. Our bags were carried to our room for us which was very nice considering the stairs.The room was nicely sized and pleasantly cool compared to the blistering summer heat. Breakfast was a nice spread choice with cheeses, breads, cereal, juices, yogurt and a nice selection of cakes and pies among other things.

What a wonderful, serene setting in one of the most unique cities I have visited in Italy. the hotel was beautifully situated and decorated. My only complaint was the front desk. We had issues communicating with them which made for awkward service. The doorman, or bellman was very helpful, spoke wonderful English and was elegant. Overall a great place to... More

Matera is a really cool little town, apparently the oldest of all European cities. This hotel was really nice and luxurious and we had two rooms, one in a cave and one not in a cave. The cave room did smell a little musty and feel a bit damp but what do you expect. Hotel dinner was delicious and quality... More

The Sassi cave dwellings are absolutely fascinating. After the forcible eviction of resident families in the 1950's, they fell into disrepair, and then were squatted and lived in by hippies. Now, however , many of them are being converted into amazing and characterful hotels. The Sant'Angelo is one of the most interesting and exquisite. Because many of the cave dwellings... More

A gorgeous hotel with immense rooms, some of which are genuine caves, the decor is very peaceful and ideal for a relaxing stay. The hotel is in the centre of the Sassi, which is perfect for exploring the cave churches, the terrace overlooks the Chiesa del Idris which stands above the canyon and the ancient town. Breakfast was not the... More

It's a climate controlled room but yet it is a cave. Basic amenities are held within but it's an instant bucket list thing to do. We went for valentines weekend on a special, caught the shuttle from Bari and a nice drive thru the country (with a little harry traffic) we arrived and couldn't get enough of this unique looking...

A beautiful hotel in a wonderful place. We stayed in room 65, one of the cave rooms, and it was unlike anywhere we'd been before. Although we only used the restaurant for breakfast, the food was excellent, and the staff were very helpful. I would have no reservations in recommending this hotel. Matera is a wonderful place, and I hope... More

Sant’Angelo Luxury Resort is placed in the enchanting rocky scenery of the Sassi of Matera.The hotel is the result of a great restoration process that involved cave-dwellings, buildings, stairs, narrow streets and courtyards thus creating a new concept of hotel...the "scattered hotel" or simply "albergo diffuso".The great work of the Italian interior designer Stefano Tardito, gave elegance and charm to this unique location. ... more   less
