The hotel is very nice, clean, in the heart of the Caveoso Sassi. The location is great.
It was very difficult to drive to the hotel (the GPS send us to streets that were not allowed to traffic or to stairs). There were no parking place available close to the hotel.
Staff were quick to help us, except when we first were trying to find the hotel. Once we were checked in all was fine.
When we arrived the roads were blocked because of a Christmas pageant which lasted for 4 nights. I wish they would have warned us and given more help on how to get to the hotel
Partly realized in the caves of the historical centre of the town with spectacular view over the gravine...
location: very centric and close to the core.
the "italian" way to handle problems...
The hotel staff was very nice and the hotel is spacious with gathering areas both inside and out on the terrace. A great feature. Our room was on the upper level with great views. Breakfast was typical and the staff was delightful and charming. We stayed in Matera for 1 day and another day would have been great. Great location and restaurants
The view was spectacular:) and the room was large!
Water pressure :( for shower a little low!
Love the bedroom and the breakfast. my room has balcony and the view of beautiful Matera.Definily enjoy my stay at Caveso Hotel.
The only thing that I liked was the breakfast and the cappuccino! My room was just ok.
When we arrived, there was nobody at the desk to check anybody in and when it was time for check out, a part time person was there who nothing about the procedure. She was pleasant at least. The worst part was the fact that they overcharged us in the end! All in all, we made a mistake chosing that hotel in Matera. There were many other ones that were so much better. It looked a whole lot better than it was and there was litterally no one minding the store!!!!
Lovely located in the sassi area
If you live in a cave, the air is always humid somehow
We loved staying in the beautiful cave section of Matera
What is the point of advertising and accessible room when it is not accessible getting to it. There are stairs from the parking area to the hotel.
This was truly a a unique experience to sleep in the old town in a room carved from limestone. We had to do it.
Took a while to warm up to the hotel owner. His wife was a joy in the morning, but he was a bit of a scrooge when we arrived.
The location was great, right in the heart of the Sassi.
The shower water was non existant. It was low presser to no water at all. The room was very damp even with a dehumidifier running all the time. There appeared to be mold on the walls and ceiling. The wifI was very slow and hard to stay connected so I could not book the next night. And breakfest was almost monexistant. 8 to 10 was the time, at 8:45 there was hardly anything left and no replenishment. He just looked at the table and walked away. People continued to come in to the room and there was nothing for them to eat but a few sweets. I got the last slice of ham. But other than that, it was ok. Oh, I travel to Italy every year for the last 19 years so I know what to expect. I do not recommend this place.
The location, very close to free parking (not easy in Sassi di Matera). Lovely and cosy room partially in a grotto. Nice staff.
Not much...except that the pressure of the hot water in the bathroom could have been better.
We adored the Sassi and all of the beautiful places there. The red wine was really good and we toured a wonderful set of caves that were made to look like it did when people lived there at the turn of the century. We toured one of the Rupestrian churches and enjoyed seeing the frescoes on the walls.
This place is very hard to find! We had a rental car and it took us almost 3 hours to find this hotel once we reached Matera. None of the streets are marked! Even some of the main streets are not marked with their name. We had a map but we were told we could not drive into the Sassi. Once we finally did find the street ( a nice young man with a car told us to follow him and he would get us to the correct street) the hotel made sure that we had a place to park in the Sassi!
great location Very nice place
the room was not properly ventilated No wifi in the room The bath room poor maintained
The location in the center of the town next to San Pieteo Caveoso behind information center! The Sassi with balcony.
Good location with free parking. Breakfast was very nice and our room had a lovely view over the church and square. A good base for exploring the sassi areas.
Fantastic location in the "sassi" area of Matera,close to all the important sites.A very special experience staying in a reconstructed cave.The room had been carefully planned,comfortable bed and large bathroom with whirlpool bath.The lady who served us at breakfast was very nice,smiling and helpful,a real gem.
To say that the room wasn't clean is an understatement!!! I had to clean the bathroom before we could use it.There were hairs and crud in the bath and sink drains that obviously hadn't been cleaned in a long time.Dust all over every bathroom surface.We stayed 2 nights so I left the evidence from the drains for the cleaning staff to see,hoping they would at least clean our room properly the next day.No such luck,the floors were dirty and we didn't get our towels changed.The management apologised the next day What a shame that such a wonderful,special place is let down by the cleaning staff.The management need to solve the problem
Have difficulty finding anything to say that was likeable. The bed was very good and the bathroom adequate
Very poor location with difficult access. No staff to help with luggage up a very rough path and up very steep steps to the rooms. The Caveoso is at best should be classed as a bed and breakfast. There are no facilites to cook food and no kitchen. The breakfast comes from plastic packs of ham and cheese. There is no parking for a car and the local population resent visitors to the extent of vandalising cars. The rooms are more like prison cells with no view outside and the seating area outside only looks onto derelict buildings. I would not recommend this bed and breakfast or Matera in general to anyone.
Very very humid even though there were two dehumidifiers and one air conditioning units. We stayed only one night because of this. Also, mold on walls.
Loved sleeping in a luxury cave
The view from room 9 was exquisite, the staff was extremely friendly and I slept extremely well.
A somewhat more modern hair dryer might be good though the one there works. Wireless never seemed to work for me but I did not miss it a bit. It seemed to be working for other guests though.
Excellent room and high cost performance. Old Sassi style room. Location to enjoy nice Sassi area.
Loud air conditioner and dehumidification machine. Door of shower room can't be completely closed. Not easy to find the hotel and parking area.
Poor breakfast. But this is everywhere in Italy, since Italians are used to have only a cup of coffee and cookies for breakfast.
Nothing, it was perfect
