Everything was first class. Would definitely return again. It surpassed our expectations.
Can't think of anything.
The hotel was in a great location on the edge of the Sassi with great views across the town. The room was quirky and very attractive, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the breakfast was varied and delicious. It was great value for money
Staff welcomed us warmly, toured us around the hotel, and recommended site seeing and restaurants (Soul Kitchen was awesome!) for each day of our stay. The patio view is breathtaking and the breakfast was excellent, that included a homemade cake by the owner that was simply delicious. We could not be happier with accommodations, service received, and value for the money. I have already given out half a dozen hotel cards to friends since our return home.
WiFi was a little eratic.
Excellent location, staff is overly friendly
We stayed in comfort in a cave. The room price was an amazing bargain. Staff was helpful and accommodating. Breakfast was excellent. What more can I say?
helpful staff terrific breakfast scenic location
Great service and room. View from the terrace just like in the pictures! Easy to park in front of the hotel.
Because we were in January low season we were upgraded at no extra charge to a "cave" room. That was a fabulous unique experience. The room was large, super comfortable and the shower fantastic in its own little cave. The room from the common patio was over the whole sassi. Fabulous. The location is at one end of the sassi area so it is a perfect start and end point for a tour of the whole area. It was the highlight of our Italy trip so we stayed an extra day.
The room. The location. The view. The quiet.
Wifi was a little weak.
Beautiful view, brilliant rooms, friendly staff and delicious breakfast - Il Belvedere is well above the standard of hotel we are used to but a great off season rate meant we could afford it and, as expected, it was by far the most luxurious part of our trip.
This brand new hotel is quite luxurious for the price you pay. We stayed in two rooms for two people, but both also had a sofa bed and one of them even had another bed/sofa. Spacious and modern rooms. The hotel has the best view in town from it's terrace where you can have your breakfast or just hang out.
Everything...no complaints at all.... Beautifull hotel, very helpful friendly staff...great WiFi, great room, great Breakfast...I just wish all my hotel stays were this good! Matera is a great place to visit....
Everything. Everybody at the hotel was very kind and helpful. The hotel and rooms are decorated with great taste, very much in keeping with the setting. The view from the balcony terrace is stunning - almost as good as it looks in the photos! Parking no problem at all. Excellent breakfast. Although, the hotel is situated at the extreme southern end of the town, the location is still excellent. The position provides wonderful views of the sassi and it only takes a few minutes to get to the excellent local restaurants. Highly recommended.
The setting is extraordinary. The hotel appears to be an average place form the outside but once you enter you realize that many of the rooms and the lobby are cut out of and into the limestone. The view from the terrace which overlooks the gorge and commune, where an unusually good breakfast is eaten, is magnificent.
That I could not stay longer!
Stunning views. Very helpful staff
Slightly noisy generator near our bedroom, but everything else was spot on
Loved, loved, loved the view from the balcony. A tasty breakfast is served there with the best chocolate & wine cake ever. Cappuccino is also fab! Location is excellen. The walk from back of the hotel took you through the gorgeous sassi into the centre ( following St Antonio route) in about 15 minutes. Breathtaking views everywhere! Cave room with modern shower. Picturesque.
No mosquito net even though specified in the Booking.Com confirmation form. Although no mossies, we did get bitten by spiders. Not nice. No proper ventilation. Small window in bedroom. No air con. All made out clothes smell musty. There was heater. Put setting on cold. It didn't help.
Easy to park across from the B&B and walk 15 minutes from main piazza. Very convenient not to have to deal with driving in town. Beautiful to have breakfast on terrace. Helpful staff
Be aware of lots of steps to get to the rooms and while it was clean and new, if you want a room in the caves you won't find it there.
the "Belvedere" is in a perfect panoramic position to overlook the cave homes, especially the terrasse, which can be used anytime, also for breakfast - which by the way is generous and of high quality, self-made cake, focaccia, fresh fruit, muesli, etc. Even the so-called Standard room was perfectly equipped, very clean, all new and with special features. the staff was very dedicated so that the stay was just perfect
The hotel is immaculately presented. Our cave room was amazing. The views from the balcony that overlook Matera are breathtaking. Really good breakfast. We would highly recommend this hotel.
Very friendly helpful staff with good local knowledge. Beautifully appointed rooms. Immaculately clean. Close to Sassi and good restaurants. Delicious breakfast - try the local chocolate cake with wine.
Simone was so helpful and he spoke great English which was great for us. Room was very clean and loved the shower in the rock! Parking was very convenient and you could easily walk all over.
B&B: great location, fantastic view, good breakfast, kind staff., walking distance to the city center. Room: romantic, great beds, best shower in the world and very clean!
Nothing at all.
The list of 'likes' for Il Belvedere are lengthy, beginning with: The incredible view from the balcony/deck, picture perfect for memories Friendly, capable, efficient staff, willing to be of assistance always Very good accommodations with all the required amenities Organization with guides and restaurants and other needs Wee well manicured spots available to sit Good breakfasts overlooking the sassi first thing in the morning, a great way to begin a day The fact that a parking spot outside the hotel was saved for us upon request as the streets are busy and small And again, the view from the hotel...can't emphasize the importance of such from one's hotel while in Matera especially if you like to sit and just relax for a bit...and look at this amazing city and take photos Matera and Il Belvedere are a marvelous combination from Patty (Vancouver, BC, Canada)
There is nothing to report that we didn't like, loved it all. But, perhaps the importance of using GPS when trying to locate the hotel needs to be emphasized in the website as finding 'any location in Matera' is a full-on adventure by car...so advising one to use GPS, if not prepared to do so, is important...Matera is a wonderful adventure, unique, but one doesn't want the adventure to start until fully settled...use GPS everywhere there if driving, but the beauty of this hotel is one does not have to drive in order to see and find all the sites!
Il Belvedere was a great choice - the staff was very professional (though a bit cold at times), the breakfast was very good, and the price was a real bargain. The location is good as well - there was street parking out front, which is a real rarity in Matera. The block feels a bit deserted, but within a five minute walk you're in a much livelier area.
