Nice hotel in the caves. Rooms close by the registration office, about 100 yards up the stairs from the office. Our room had a mini kitchen and patio where we had breakfast and evening wine. We were over an original cave with the cisterns. AC worked well though it cools down at night. Owner takes you up to the parking... More

We visited Matera in early June and stayed at Hotel San Giorgio, although opting not to stay in one of their cave suites as my husband has an aversion to even a hint of humidity. Our apartment verged on luxurious - a small, completely equipped kitchen, living/dining room with stairs leading to a loft area with seating, roomy bedroom, and... More

We were upgraded to an apartment above the office of this charming hotel in the sassi. I understand that the other rooms are situated away from this building, and more in the caves themselves. This was no problem for us. Our apartment was large and quite lovely in its local furnishing. Our problem was that the bathroom was tucked away... More

The hotel is spread across the lower part of the city in various caves, rooms, etc. A different experience that would have been enjoyable had it not been for the rudeness of the owner concerning some problems that we encountered with our room. Without going into great detail, suffice it to say that we were treated with such anger that... More

Dear guest, Thank you for taking your precious time to review my hotel and also my person.

The staff at this hotel was fantastic . Very helpful, polite and service oriented. I made an error in my reservation and they changed it with no problem. The room was an apartment, well equipped, large and comfortable. The breakfast lovely. The minor negative is that the parking in the town can be difficult and I would have rather been... More

We were after the 'cave' experience and got it. We were fortunate to stay in 2 different rooms (Granai and Bifora). The rooms are a 5 minute walk from the main office. Granai had a nice balcony and easy access to the private caves beneath, which you must explore! Bifora was outside the gate on a little corridor but you... More

As we searched for a “home” in Matera, the magnificent city in Basilicata, we looked at several lovely choices set in the cave districts, Sasso Barisano and Caveoso. The S. Giorgio in the Barisano proved an outstanding choice. The desk staff at reception was exceptionally welcoming and helpful from our arrival through our 15-day stay. Alessandra & Brunella, who spoke...

Good hotel experience - efficient booking, reception all prepared, good value. Others have noted the difficulties of staying in the Sassi - do remember to register your car with reception BEFORE you arrive if you need to drive in within workday business hours - you need to be registered as a guest or risk a fine. Outside business hours you... More

We were traveling to Matera and got hopelessly lost trying to find the hotel. Our Garmin was not up to topography more vertical than horizontal. Brunella, the concierge on duty left her desk and met us using her car. She "guided" us home. The hotel is of jaw dropping magnificence as is the city. As others reviewers have pointed out,... More
