    The smell of mold was too overwhelming for all of us and it was very musky and too much moisture.

    The fact that it was easy to find in such a old town and it's closeness to exploring the Sassi Caveoso area

    Unfortunately the cave room is a bit stuffy but this is only because of the type of rock the caves are built in

    Love, love, love this place. I can't imagine staying in any other place in Matera. The staff is wonderful, location is great, their restaurant is excellent. The best place to stay in Matera.

    What's not to like!

    Set right in the Sassi with excellent views just outside the hotel. Perfect for photos and exploration. Free carpark is just 30m away (very privilege since vehicle entry into Sassi is restricted). Authentic cave apartment done up very well. It's humid (as expected of caves) but with the heater on, it's ok.

    No wifi signal in our apartment, had to go to the reception. Extremely minimal English by owner/manager. He didn't seem too happy when we asked one too many questions.

    Amusingly, we actually received the best service from the hotel dog who greeted us and literally showed us to the reception desk. If only the staff could be like the dog then the place would be a total success. We stayed at several good hotels while in Matera but this is not one.

    Very disappointing experience with 1 out of 10 customer service. Here are my reasons: - Reception is a desk in the corner of the restaurant and usually unattended. I had to stand and wait to check-in, check-out and enquiries. - Hotel room dark and dirty with old furniture and worn out rug. Room 53 was a 'Cave' style room but very damp atmosphere with odour from the bare rock. The walls need to be sealed to stop dust/smell. I visited another good hotel (beginning with 'Bas') and their cave rooms were excellent. - Shower curtain was broken (but also highly unusual/unusable wrap-around type which clung to my body during the shower) - Breakfast: We were sure we would receive lousy service at breakfast. When I went at 9.30am the unfriendly waitress was hoovering the floor and said 'wait' when I asked for breakfast and showed our room key. She shouted 'Vinc----o' and then switched the hoover back on and did not seat us. Stunned by her ignorance! - The staff speak no English but that's not usually a problem as Check-in, Check-out, Breakfast can usually be done in any language with minimum fuss. Instead of simply speaking in Italian to us they were cold, ignorant and silent. My advice to the hotel would be: - Improve your attitude and create an atmosphere where people want to return again - Renovate your rooms immediately; paint walls off-white, renew the furniture and light fittings. - Equip the kitchen with basics such as Salt, Pepper, Sugar, Oil and create a preparation space.

    The location is close to all the main attractions of Sassi. We all enjoyed the unique experience of the cave/room which was warm and cosy. Car parking was close and handy for the luggage. La posizione è vicino a tutte le attrazioni principali di Sassi. Ci siamo divertiti tutti l'esperienza unica della grotta / camera che era calda e accogliente. Il parcheggio era vicino e comodo per i bagagli.

    The manager verbally abused his employee for some time in front of us whilst we were eating breakfast. It was a disgraceful exhibition that we have never seen the likes of before and hope never to see again. I do not think I would stay again for this one reason. Il direttore verbalmente abusato della sua dipendente per qualche tempo davanti a noi mentre stavamo mangiando la prima colazione. E 'stata una mostra vergognoso che non abbiamo mai visto artisti del calibro di prima e spero di non rivedere. Non credo che ci tornerei per questo motivo.

    This was a great experience -- outstanding rooms, right in the Sassi, with wireless internet and a good restaurant too. The staff was quite friendly and helpful. I hope to stay here again.

    I have nothing bad to say about Residence San Pietro Barisano.

    Great location with parking. Many restaurants close by.

    Breakfast was just ok, but we prefer a savory breakfast to a sweet one. Staff was not overly friendly or outgoing.

    Location is very good - the terrace/ristorante in front of the units is pleasant. The owner's dog is sweet.

    Rooms are soooo damp. When we first arrived the bedspreads felt more than damp. Having travelled in developing countries and lived in rural West Africa. I have to say the discomfort of.our room ranks up there with some of the most uncomfortable accomodations I've ever been in...except.those weren't 150E a night!
