Great location and everything recently remodeled
What a lovely place. Our jr suites were beautifully decorated, spacious and very comfortable. Delicious breakfast was served each morning on the terrace overlooking Matera's historic old town. Easy to find, fast Wi-Fi, 5 minute walk to the center of town. You can drive up right to the door to unpack then park on the nearby street. Every detail in this place was thought of and implemented for guest's comfort. Vitta and Claudia were very helpful and informative and made our stay there an unforgettable experience.
Excellent location, nice room with all the confort, although opening on the terrasse, it was very quiet. Breakfast was very good .
We stayed for five nights in the Junior Cave Suite. A wonderful experience in a top class establishment. The view, breakfasts and hospitality from the lady owner and her staff were excellent! What more can I say, except thank you. Grazi!
I had the Senza Nidd room, a luxurious cave overlooking the Duomo and centre of the city. It included a beautiful en suite shower room in an adjoining cave. The staff were so very helpful and breakfasts in the sunshine on the terrace overlooking the city - superb.
I loved everything about Palazzo Degli Abati. Nothing negative to offer.
Love the room and the bathroom was really nice. The staff were really nice and cared for our needs. Breakfast on the patio was great with a wonderful view! They really helped us navigate the ins and out of fascinating Matera.
The hotel hard to find since it is a historic district and signage has to be minimal.
Great Place and Great Location
Hotel is wonderfully located overlooking the old town of Matera, and the cave sleeping experience was great fun. Comfortable room and very helpful and friendly staff.
Parking can be a bit of an issue as available spaces in old town are very limited.
Very helpful staff, interesting location, great views, nice room, nice and varied (sweet and savoury) breakfast. It is on the edge of the sassi district so didn't have to drive far into the sassi with a car, and parking was available nearby.
The location of the hotel is close to the main sight attractions, with lots of good restaurants nearby all reachable on foot in 5 to 6 minutes. The room is very clean and comfortable. The hotel staff, and in particular Claudia, is extremely friendly and helpful.
View from the Palazzo. Experience dwelling in caves. Variety of breakfast choice. Staff was helpful in planning this trip.
We wanted twin beds, but not available. So the room had a double and a sofa bed that was narrower than a single bed.
The staff are nice and friendly, excellent breakfast.
Wifi connection is terminated as soon as the device went asleep. It was cumbersome to have to log in every time to go online.
Spectacular city and hotel! We loved everything about this incredibly beautiful hotel. Sig.ra Diva spoke to us passionately about her Matera and this made us instantly love this unique city.
Palazzo Degli Abati was everything we expected, and more! Great location, great service, comfortable bed, and hot shower.
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.
