It was so amazing stay that we came back this place in a week. The position of the B&B is perfect. Heating system was working so good, Wi-fi was also perfect. We reserved two rooms and they were very clean. Towels and all the details (like toothbrush, toothpaste, Ear stick etc.) were avaliable in the bathroom. Stuff is really professional and friendly. They helped us a lot for our researches in Matera, especially Maria Angela. You have to make check in a Restaurant called Oi Mari, i really recommend this restaurant! We ate a lot and paid less.. Thanks a lot!

Super nice staff. They gave us a map explained us where to go and what to see. Breakfast is delicious. The best tomato bruschetta we had in Italy and delicious cakes. Wifi works fine. The stay gives access to a terrace of the residence, with beautiful views of Matera. They were willing to give pointers for parking, but we had already found an underground one in Piazza Cesare Firrao, right outside the center. The cobblestone streets in the sassi are too narrow and parking space limited. Have fun, Matera is quite unique!

This place has the perfect location for many side trips. The room was beautiful. The staff was great as was their breakfast and their food at Oi Mari Ristorante which was right across the cobblestone street. We could not have asked for better accommodations. The only mistake was not staying a full week.

Beds are to hard and food was mediocre at best. Extremely noisy if you are sleeping on the fold out. The loft above makes loud creaking noises anytime someone moves.
Nice view of the city from hotel terrace

Updated everything, very clean and modern. The staff was very nice. Amazing bruschetta at breakfast-- the best I had my two weeks in Italy. We checked in around 11pm, I was very irritated and the staff was very polite dealing with me. They let us have early breakfast and coffee so we could continue on our road trip. They let us park right out front since we were only staying for a few hours and leaving before 7am.

Nothing to complain about.
We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at San Giovanni vecchio. It is situated down in the middle of Sassi, within walking distance of everything. The history of this town is amazing. We had our breakfast at the restaurant across the street (which is where you also check-in. This a family run place and they are more than willing to do anything to ensure that your stay with them is unforgettable. You'll not regret your stay there.

Super clean rooms, wonderful breakfast included at nearby restaurant. We also ate dinner at Oi Mari both nights as it was so good...and great cave like atmosphere as well.

GPS sent us to wrong end of street and the property very hard to find from that end. Maybe the host could include directions that the property is just off the street where her restaurant is!

Breakfast was fresh pastries, but there was no yoghurt or fresh fruit. My train was delayed by 30 minutes, the owner could not meet me and could not provide a place for my bag until check-in. I am a woman travelling alone.
Tea was available in the room. Very comfortable, very secure very close to harbour, but without the street noise. Pretty harbour

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.
