Matera is such an unusual and unbelievably fantastic place but the highlight of our visit was when I first stepped inside our `cave' room. I was simply overwhelmed as it was truly and absolutely fabulous!!!! Unfortunately we stayed during Easter 2013 when the weather was unseasonably cold and as a result the room felt quite cold and damp but this would obviously not be a problem in warmer weather. As other reviewers have commented, the man on reception is not the most pleasant of people and the owners/staff around the foyer at breakfast time appear to be constantly arguing which is a tad off-putting. All in all though I feel lucky to have visited Matera and it has certainly been the experience of a lifetime to have stayed in such a fabulous setting. It may have had its drawbacks but compared to some of the other `cave' hotels, Caveoso is definitely an affordable option and so I would indeed recommend it to anyone else seeking unusual and beautiful accommodation in this wonderful city. Go there if you can!!
