Beautiful room (we stayed in the cave jr suite), friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast, excellent wifi. Very good location at the top end of sassi barisano. For private tour guides ask the hotel staff - we had an excellent tour with Mr. Zasa.
Somewhat humid and musty in the cave room - the hotel provides for a dehumidifier on request.
Very clever conversion of s sasso Great breakfast Very friendly reception Very good situation overlooking the sassi
Lovely room, friendly welcome, early check-in and late check-out, beautiful outside terrace for breakfast, low rates minibar.
Bath would have been nice for this price
Sleeping in a classy cave! Vita, the owner and Claudia made our stay perfect. Breakfast out on the terrace a real treat. Car parking service worked perfectly. Ideal base for walking from.
Hotel is very well located, our cave room was excellent and the breakfast was delicious. Perfect stay!
Car parking can sometimes be difficult...
Our stay was a really great experience! The location of the hotel is great and easy to access. Moreover, the owners are really really nice and welcoming. They gave us a lot of advice on where to eat, what to visit, etc.. The room was amazing and really clean. Breakfast was gorgeous! Thanks for the stay, we will be back :)
Location! Brand new facility in an historic house! High marks to the owner's and staff's hospitality!
The hotel is cosy - only 5 rooms - and the staff are very attentive and friendly, almost like a bed and breakfast. The rooms are well-maintained as at a smart hotel, however - clean, smartly presented bl with very fast wifi and a nice bathroom. No complaints! The rooms have a slightly musty smell, but that is to be expected in a cave room - it wasn't bothersome.
Staff and friendliness. Location was awesome. All facilities were really well maintained. Best sleep of my 7 nights in Puglia.
- very flexible and helpful staff! with perfect english knowledge - very cozy accomodation - very good guide (from the hotel in email) to find the place!!! - free parking!! - everything is new in the room - large room - fast wifi (and free)
- modest breakfast selection
I loved my room and my bathroom. It was a beautiful room. I have already posted many pictures of just my room.
There wasn't anything I didn't like except my visit was too short.
location was near everything with beautiful views. Staff very helpful, with finding good restaurants a step away.
Overlooking sasso barisano but easy location to drive to and to park. Great staff and owner who were very attentive from check in to check out and helped with lots of local information. Claudio deserves a mention, great english and really helpful. Very stylish room carved out of the rock - spacious with all the facilities you could want. Lovely terrace for breakfast overlooking the sasso. Lots of variety on the buffet. The effort we put into learn italian was paid back in full by having the opportunity to talk to the owner about the history of the city, about the property, about Italy... a lovely lady.
Honestly, you can't rave enough about this hotel. The finishing touches, location, atmosphere and facilities were brilliant. From our initial checkin with Claudia, who kindly pointed out the best parts of the town, things to do, great restaurant tips (she was brilliant) to the excellent choices at breakfast, and finally the owners were great. Everything was brilliant.
Character of property Friendliness of staff Excellent wifi Good location
Very strong smell of damp in bedroom which was really overpowering particularly when trying to sleep. A real shame because everything else was perfect.
Room finished to a very high standard, superb central location with views, easy parking directly outside, friendly service, good breakfast
no instructions for air con so was unable to turn it down to an acceptable temperature in the night
Junior suite had the most comfortable bed and pillows I have ever slept on. The attention to detail in the room and the quality of fittings were excellent. Staff fabulous and location great spot. Was recommended a number of places to eat. Choose Pico, just down the road. Very nice and inexpensive, around €10 per plate. Good atmosphere.
We had a lovely stay at Palazzo Degli Abati over looking the Sassi: the room was wonderful, clean, nice smell; staff was very welcoming, attentive and helpful getting us introduced to the sassi and it's treasures. We enjoyed wonderful breakfast on the tease. It will be our first option next time in Matera. Thank you and regards to the two nice ladies.
It was nothing we didn't like.
The staff were wonderful, Claudia spoke English really well. They also gave us very useful information about how to get to Matera and advised us about what to do and best travel advice. This was even before we got there! The room was amazing, probably the best we stayed in all of Italy. Very new and clean, big shower area which is rare for Italy. Great location for the Barisano area. Great breakfast area and food.
Nothing...everything was wonderful.
Everything about this stunning boutique hotel is great. We stayed for 5nights and wished we could have stayed longer. How you can take caves and make them delightful places to stay is nothing short of a miracle. Add to that a wonderful,attentive and knowledgable staff, a delicious Italian breakfast and a terrace to relax on with stunning views of the Sassi and you have described the Palazzo Degli Abati. I recommend it unreservedly.
There is nothing to dislike about this hotel. You do have to walk up steps to get to the main square but it is no problem if you wear sensible shoes and take your time. My partner and I are both well past our prime!
The junior suite is definitely fabulous and the staff extremely kind and helpful!the location is perfect!
Staying in the heart of the sassi with a great view. The children loved staying in the cave room. The other room was also fab. Everyone enjoyed the choice at breakfast. Lovely restaurants within walking distance
Taxi would not take us directly to hotel, left us to find our own way. While there is a very direct driving route to this hotel
Fantastic fancy accommodation with a very good breakfast. Can really recommend this if you are going to stay in the Sassi.
Friendly and helpful staff, great location and view. A lovely stay.
Quite hard to find, but think this is the case with a lot of Matera accommodation.
Absolutely everything. Beautiful rooms and lovely, friendly and very obliging staff. Great breakfast as well.
