I loved our Palazzo experience in Matera!
We stayed for one night in the Palazzo during our April visit to the beautiful town of Matera. The main drawback of the place, probably like most other places in the town's historic center is finding it and parking your car. However, when we got to town, we called the hotel's reception and they were very helpful with assisting us to navigate our car throughout the narrow streets of Matera's center.
Parking was another issue - you can't park inside the city center so you either need to pay 20 Euros for parking inside the hotel's courtyard or park outside the city center, walk for about 8 minutes and get to the hotel. That's what we did and I think it was a good choice, as you don't really need your car while in town. The Sassi are only explorable on foot.
And as for the hotel itself. It was really good. Our room which the basic kind, was very big, contained an entrance room and a big bedroom. The bed was comfortable and you had great views over town overlooking from the window. Bathroom was very comfortable as well.
Breakfast was nice, served in one of the beautiful hotel halls, and contained various types of cheese and meet, some yogurt and fresh juice. Basic but good.
Wifi in the hotel is free, but kind of slow.
The hotel also has a balcony and and a roof terrace with marveolous views over the town's sassi.
