Stayed in this hotel in the ancient old city of Matera. For a three star hotel this was very good, The rooms are in old cave like rooms, they can smell a bit musty but otherwise very comfortable with tv and good shower and a comfy bed. The room had the most stunning view, during the day and in the evening. The pool in a cave was such a great place to go and relax in after a long day walking around Matera. Magical.

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 used the spa and got a 50 minutes relaxing massage. The massage was ok, but the spa is a must see.

All in all a very nice experience to stay in this hotel.

This Hotel may be strongly recommanded to everyone who wants to relaxe and try live the easy life. You live in a cave where everything is well organized and beautifully designed. The hotel is placed in the central of Matera and have a nice spa area, with a nice pool, sauna, etc. The breakfirst is traditionally Italian style, which means a lot of sweet cakes;)

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 and we were checked in quickly. Our room was not one of the ones in a cave (room 12) but it was a nice room with twin beds and an unbelievable view. There is small patio that we enjoyed over some wine and scenery. Breakfast was tasty with many options. There was also a pianist to provide ambient enjoyment. After a long hot day of exploring the city we went into the onsite Thermae. This was incredibly relaxing and the cool soak in the cave grottos were a highlight. This is an extra cost but well worth it. Overall and excellent experience.

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 Euros pp, while it is 20 euros pp for guests. We weren't aware that you were charged extra for use of the pool (always read the small print I guess) so it stung to be charge 80 euros extra for using the pool twice, when the hotel is already fairly expensive. If I were to come to Matera again, I would probably stay at another hotel and come only to use the pool facilities, as 400 euros for 1 room for 2 nights is a bit expensive for me.

The hotel is beautiful and great for couples. And the themae pool + spa set this hotel apart from the rest. But it is very expensive.
