First of all, one must understand that this hotel is located in a "traffica limitata" designated area. On a charming square, with quite a few steps up to the reception area. (They are installing an elevator, supposed to be ready in March.) One may drop off their bags, no need to schlep from parking, and no need to pay to park either, if you park in a white designated area, which is free, maybe a few steps farther than the pay parking, and perfectly safe. A 7 minute walk, at most.

The young lady at the desk graciously helped to carry our bags...we are older folks, and were at first put off a bit by the steps, turned out not to be a problem. The rooms are large and quite modern, but not without personality, as with so many modern hotels.

We found the staff to be helpful, if not overly solicitous, it helps if you speak a little bit of Italian. Every request was granted pleasantly...we were there in the winter, the hotel was not full.
Breakfast was perfectly adequate, and the rate was reasonable, which is what mattered most to us. The hotel is located just 30 seconds from the steps into the Sassi...one of the most fascinating, evocative and rather overlooked Unesco World Heritage sites you will ever see. We too, extended our trip over a few days. The old city of Matera itself is beautiful and has quite a lively passegiata. don't miss an opportunity to visit, absolutely fascinating.

Room Tip: Helps if you don't have a whole lot of luggage, but you can unload in front of the hotel, and they are installing an elevator. All the rooms we saw were nice.

We stayed at the Sedile in September 2011 and were extremely happy with our choice. the hotel is in a fantastic location in the heart of everything of interest. Our room was large and stylish, very modern, clean and comfortable. Service was okay but not brilliant, the staff on reception were generally quite glum but this didn't at all detract from the great rooms which felt quite luxe, and the location, which had a lot of chracter. Matera itself was a stunning location full of activity, all- up a brilliant hotel and town for a romantic getaway!

We usually drive into a town and go to the tourist info centre to find our accommodation. In Matera, the tourist info fellow was wonderfully friendly and enthusiastic, and recommended and booked for us Albergo del Sedile. We knew that Matera was not a "driver's town", so we were quite prepared to leave the car in a parking building and trundle our bags a couple of hundred metres over the cobbled streets to the hotel, on the Piazza Sedile. Yes, a bit of a hassle, but part of life's rich tapesty!

The hotel is decorated in ultra-modern style, and very comfortable. The check-in was efficient though cool. Our room was well-equipped. Matera itself is an astonishing place, and after a quick stroll around we decided to stay an extra night. Breakfast was adequate, but fairly slim pickin's. The hotel is on the piazza, which houses the local music conservatorium: there is a bohemian atmosphere and the tinkle of piano and violin music drifts on the air.

Albergo del Sedile is a slightly impersonal place. There is no bar or restaurant, and the staff seem to be just caretakers, but this was absolutely fine for what we wanted, Peace and privacy. We'd most likely stay again for the modern creature comforts.

More a B&B than a hotel since there are no facilities that one would associate with a hotel such as bar or roomy reception. The place is quite stylish and very central – there are steps from the piazza leading into each of the two main Sassi areas. There was a TV, room safe and fridge and the room was a good size. However there is a list of minuses or at least things to be aware of: The hotel is in a traffic controlled area so you have to drop of your bags and park in a lot about 200m away (which cost about €15 per day). There are 40 steps from the piazza to the hotel reception. The bathroom was separated from the bedroom by a translucent glass door that didn’t give much privacy either visually or aurally. The sink was stylish but couldn’t be filled. A/C was disabled in September and so the windows had to be opened admitting noise and mozzies (receptionist did give us a spray). The windows were very heavy and it was a job to stop them knocking during the night. We didn’t request a room with a balcony at check-in and although most rooms seemed to have one, and the hotel seemed to be virtually empty, we weren’t given one. Breakfast was very basic with flavourless breadrolls and a fairly limited choice – fairly understandable given the emptiness of the hotel (wouldn’t it be better to deliver a pre-ordered breakfast tray?).
Matera itself was really unusual and crying out to be explored. We spent 3 nights and took a day to explore each of the Sassi. My tip – leave the Sasso Caveoso until last and seek out the abandoned dwellings to get a sense of what it must have been like.
