The staff went above and beyond to help us as we arrived during a snow storm much later than planned. They came to meet us and carried our bags through the snow streets, and even had a neighboring restaurant stay open for us to eat a late night dinner. They were very welcoming of my small dog and provided lots of advice on how best to see Matera. The rooms were very comfortable, clean and warm (we were there in the snow so this was key). The modern take on the sassi rooms was quite pleasing.
It is such an interesting place to stay in, antiquated and yet utterly modern and comfortable. Right smack in the cave district and yet only about a ten to fifteen minute walk to the central square. The staff is so friendly and ever eager to please. We are a family of four adults and the room accommodated us very adequately, with lots of sitting area to spare. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Hotel provides apartaments. Ours was about 50mt. Internet access was guaranteed by room's own modem. The view just outside the door is amazing and the location is quiet. They have a free service of picking up costumers from city free car parks direct to the hotel.
It is not easy to find good customer service in Italy.We did here at The Basiliani. The Hotel staff was kind, helpful and very accommodating. The room was comfortable and clean with a breathtaking view. Good breakfast.
Fantastic position with breath taking views. Hotel very attractive and full of character, Manager very helpful and friendly, Very good value and very recommendable.
Pillows were too thick and a little uncomfortable.
Everything : very nice and helpful staff, great room, good breakfast, unique location...
Perfect location in the heart of Sassi. Owner was very nice.
A bit humid in the room
strongly recommend! very good location, excellent&caring personnel, good breakfast, clean room, good view. thanks!!!
The internal design of this hotel managed to combine the old and the new in perfect harmony! Rooms have all the modren facilities, yet, they are built in caves. It combines well with the ambience of Matera. Breakfast was very good, views from the rooms are excellent and this hotel is located in the heart of the Sassi!
There is nothing one cannot like with this Property - it is perfect. However, I have to add a word of caution as the location is not readily accessible and people with mobility problems will have an issue. Finding the hotel is next to impossible, so be advised to have the telephone number of the hotel handy so that on arrival call the hotel and the manager would gladly come to pick you up, show you the car park and take your luggage to the hotel. Matera is not the usual city so be prepared to adapt to the surroundings and you will be pleasantly surpriced. It is an experience
Great interior, staffs, breakfast, view and room with reasonable price. You will feel you are sleeping in a modern room in 1000 year hold cave. Love the furniture, bath, lighting, and you can visit everywhere in Matera Sessi easily from the hotel
The Sassi in Matera is a unique place and a UNESCO Patrimony and Basiliani is nestled in the centre of it.
with all this excellence, maybe the breakfast choice should be more focused on the local specialties which are many and delicious but it is a mere detail out of a very positive opinion.
Giuseppe and his wife were the perfect hosts. Our stay in this unique cave hotel enhanced our wonderful Matera experience. The hotel , located in the Sassi Caveoso , is a beautiful study in contrast .The ultra modern interior design and furnishings in a cave setting provided an unexpected pleasant surprise. Location is ideal for exploring the Sassi with excellent restaurants nearby.. Giuseppe made sure we had parking and our luggage delivered to our rooms.
An interesting cave hotel in the sassi, right on the edge of the ravine. Great views right from your door.
it was very exciting sleeping in a cave. very beautiful designed old and new interior. the humidity was high but you are sleeping in a cave, who can say this.
This hotel is amazing and extraordinary, perfect location, view, big and unusual rooms, very helpful and polite staff.
Great location, very friendly staff. They pick you up by car from a parking spot outside the historic centre. Lovely room with great view
Ambiance of the location.
Fabulous location in the midst of the sassi. Incredible views. Modern, comfortable furnishings in a cave! Excellent breakfast with great coffee, bread, fruit, cheese, meat yogurt. Josef was so helpful. Took us in his own car to pick up our car in the paid parking lot and guided us to a free lot. Also insisted on carrying our bags. Lovely, helpful host.
We liked this, but some with mobility issues might have problems walking on cobbled paths to hotel location.
Location and the view from the room was magnificent, it leads you back centuries ago. Breakfast with good local produce and coffee. Helpfulness of the staff.
The hotel was not so easy to find and you need to be prepared for the walk with comfortable shoes.
The location in the "sassi" is very nice; after having left our car at a parking, we were met and taken to the hotel; we also received help with our luggage as well as comprehensive information on the city and its attractions. Indeed very friendly staff. The rooms are spacious and modern.
Our room had some mold in the bathroom (which is no wonder given the fact that you sleep in a sort of cave).
it is a good location to discover the Sassi area. It very quiet, picturesque place.
Sometimes it is hard to get your car near, because of movie shooting or other happening. But the owner is ready to take you with his own car.
Giseppi was friendly and helpful, once we eventually found the hotel it was bright modern and clean. Good location to wander around the caveso area.
We had a mezzanine room, the beds upstairs squeaked and so did the stairs, but other than this the experience staying here was good.
Great Views over the valley and walking distance to all local facilities, staff friendly and helpful.
Modern facilities in a cave. Great decor and real comfort.
