“Great Position”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

This is a modern style hotel in a very old city. It was clean and in a very good position. Breakfast was good, as were the staff. Room was dated but clean. It had a underground car parking which was great. Prices were very reasonable.

Matera is such a lovely city and the only positive things I can say about this hotel is that it's in a great location and the wifi works. It is just a few minutes walk from the square and access to the Sassi so a great spot to explore from. The hotel lobby and bar area are dark and lack charm and the service was poor. My room was a fair size with a large bed but it was dark and grim. The bathroom was ok but with a very small shower. They really just provide the basics at this place. There are other choices in Matera; don't settle for the San Domenico.

The hotels has a nice location, 3 minutes walking from the Sassi - ancient part of Matera. The hotel itself is not bad - nice rooms, Italian breakfast, nice staff at reception. But it's really out of charm, just another business or oversleep hotel. But it's really close to the magical part of Matera, so it's not a bad option if you want to explore the city.

If you are looking for a charming, typical Italian hotel that reflects the unique allure of ancient Matera, find another place to stay. This hotel seemed out of place in Matera, which is such a magical city. It has the look and vibe of a large chain hotel and lacks personality and charm. the wifi worked well in the room, which was clean and unremarkable. The primary value of this hotel is its location, which is excellent for touring the city. It's on a very busy city street, but the street is an advantage if you don't want to carry your luggage over cobblestone streets. Would be a good location for tourists who have children or limited mobility. The buffet breakfast was plentiful, with a variety of juices and fresh pastries, meats, cheeses, and cereal.

The location is great however that is the only thing worth staying here for at all. The service by the waiters was horrible, the wifi never worked and the rooms were so tiny we had no place to put anything.

We booked this hotel on the basis of the location and an expectation of being able to use it as a comfortable base for a 3 day stay to explore Matera. The location was good but the room was small and, contrary to expectations, we were not able to use the large terrace to sit out during the day. The reason for this was not explained to us despite the fact that breakfast was served there every day.
Having underground car parking at €10 per day was very useful.

Very good hotel, just a minute walk from the central square and the entrances to Sassi.
The whole Sassi district is highly recommended, a journey back to the past.
The hotel rooms were good and clean. The breakfast was great. There is a nice lobby where you can relax and enjoy a drink. We travelled by bus from Naples and it was a bit difficult to reach the hotel late at evening as taxi was the only way and it was hard to find one. However on the way back we took the local bus to the bus station and this was easier.
