Wifi was not great - however Matera is in a remote area
We found the staff at this hotel to be very helpful, and friendly. the room was lovely and had a wonderful view
The location, the garden suite we were given, the special helpfulness of the manager was outstanding.
The location was great, the people from the hotel will got far to make your stay a pleasant one. it was a dream to stay here.
Getting there is tricky. Follow the instructions that the hotel emails with the confirmation of the reservation and don't hesitate to ask for extra explanations if needed.
Nice contrast between a contemporary, sophisticated room, and the inmediate surroundings that look like they did 20 centuries back (no wonder they were used as film locations for Biblic movies) Very nice staff, who has an authentic passion for this city, and it shows in every conversation with them.
This not a complaint but more a sideline information: Carpark is a bit away and you have to walk about 150 meter to reception.
The hotel is astonishing with the location in the town of Sassi/Matera. The rooms our comfortable, clean and have unique design. Very impressive
A friendly, warm welcome from staff when we arrived on a wet, foggy night. Bags were carried to our lovely spacious rooms which were nice and warm in the chill of March. Good toiletries, great shower, good free wi fi. Breakfast plentiful and well presented. Fabulous views over the gorge, watching the kestrels flying over the gorge in the absolute silence this location has.Offer from reception to take us and our bags to our car on departure.
Loved the juxtaposition of very old and very modern. Incredible view. Very peaceful. Incredibly nice staff, could not have been more helpful.
Giuseppe was marvelous from carting our bags from dropoff point to walking us to restaurant for dinner to taking us to second hotel for continuation of stay in Mater. Proprty is marvelous in all aspects. Great view from room.
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.
Pillows were too thick and a little uncomfortable.
Fantastic position with breath taking views. Hotel very attractive and full of character, Manager very helpful and friendly, Very good value and very recommendable.
Everything : very nice and helpful staff, great room, good breakfast, unique location...
A bit humid in the room
Perfect location in the heart of Sassi. Owner was very nice.
strongly recommend! very good location, excellent&caring personnel, good breakfast, clean room, good view. thanks!!!
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
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!
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
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.
The Sassi in Matera is a unique place and a UNESCO Patrimony and Basiliani is nestled in the centre of it.
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
