Well Matera is certainly different, although you may feel you recognise it, as the Sassi have regularly been used as backdrop in various movies- such as Mel Gibson's Passion. We stayed 2 nights and I feel that's about right. The rock churches, and the Sassi themselves are the highlight of any trip- although make sure to go over to the other side of the gorge for a full on view, and to see where Gibson chose to site the crucifixion. This is a place for adults, and probably when the sun is warm and not broiling, as you are likely to be doing quite some walking, and there's no pool. But it's certainly worth the effort.
Hotel in Pietra is located in the Sasso Bariano,- be prepared for walking and to be flexible over parking- as the original town planning was done 1500 years before the invention of the motor car. As others have commented the hotel is quite unique, loads of character, a lovely common area, and excellent breakfasts (the best bruschetta pomodoro). It is within walking distance of some lovely osterias- I'd certainly recommend Osteria Pico.
