Great location! The room is quiet and clean! Staff are nice and helpful! The restaurant of the hotel offer excellent food with discount for the guest!
My best friend and I spent the most amazing days in Matera. San Giv Veechio's staff/owner were amazing, everything was excellent and she even brought breakfast to our room because we were leaving early in the am. Beautiful place to stay and get the "cave" feeling as well. I will return to San Giv Veechio! Freda, San Diego CA
I have traveled the world, living in three countries, and visiting over 20. In all my travels, no place has stuck me as so amazing as Matera did. The staff for this hotel are usually hanging out across the street at Oi Mari. If you arrive and can't find the "front desk", just step into the restaurant and they will help you. We will be returning in a few months for a second visit and will be using San Giovanni Vecchio again.
Matera is a magical place and the hotel greatfully follows the mood. There are flowers in the room. About the location, you easily reach the sassi and other main attraction.
What a neat place!!!!
Fantastic location in a cave dwelling. Hostess was extremely helpful and treated us like family. Wonderful breakfast served in restaurant opposite, all made in house. Nothing was too much trouble.
the best location for sightseeing.
The place was spotless, extremely comfortable and quiet at night. The staff were friendly, breakfast was much more than simply substantial......wonderful choices and interesting local dishes.
It would be great if the website gave a little more information as to the exact location, it was challenging to find initally.
Very hospitable hosts, very good accommodation across the street from their restaurant, where excellent breakfasts were served. It was a good experience to stay in the centre of Matera. No problem or charge for parking at this time of year (October)in the street outside the apartment
Trying to find it was difficult, better signage on the outer road of the old part would help. Easy location to find once you knew how. Wifi a little intermittent.
Location - appartment has a beautiful patio on the roof, very friendly staff and a good restaurant across the street where one gets a discount if staying at the residenza.
Matera is an amazing place and it was nice to be in the middle of the Sassi. The owners were friendly and very helpful when it came to changing a booking arrangement. Great breakfast in the restaurant across the road from room.
Very hard to find. The bed was accessed by a stair leading from the lower part of the room; there was an iron girder that anyone over 6-foot could hit their head on very easily (and we did!). Cave-like feeling rather strange - would not suit anyone suffering from claustrophobia.
Tucked into part of a typical sassi cave, on 3 levels with small kitchen facility. Clean and spacious, free wifi!
Wonderful location in Sassi. Easy to walk to shops and restaurants.
We loved the fantastic location right in the middle of the Sassi, with restaurant, bars, shops and the ravine within a few minutes walk. The rooms themselves (we were in a suite) were lovely and it was great to have a good space as well as a private patio. We opted for breakfast in the restaurant opposite under same ownership which was very good.
We had a small kitchenette, when we used the sink the pipe had not been secured and we flooded the cupboard!! it was however repaired quickly when I complaine. I also had to chase up about my wi-fi connection.
Pleasant space. Great location, great place to visit. Lovely bathroom and living area.
Loft ceiling very restrictive. Kitchenette set up poor, some unwashed items left behind. Very difficult to find the place on foot from the station with very limited English on the phone to help.
The location in the city center of Matera was perfect ! The room was clean and fresh and the surrounding very nice with a lot of restaurants and cafés.
Det flotte loft og selve lejligheden, beliggenheden og venlig personale Beautiful sealing and the appartment, location and friendly staff.
Morgenmaden, Aiconen kunne ikke køle oppe under loftet hvor man lå og sov. The breakfast, and the aircon couldn't cool under the sealing were you slept.
