Score from 173 reviews Excellent
We were in room/cave 301 which is comfortable and spacious with a wonderful view of the Duomo. The staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast on the terrace was a delight.
Guests should be given, in advance, instructions on how to arrive by car (tricky but manageable) and the need to avoid, if possible, bringing heavy baggage because access to rooms involves external paths and stairs.
The location in an UNESCO site.
Extremely helpful and friendly staff- stunning large room overlooking the spectacular town and cathedral
Location Staff General atmosphere
Bathroom could be updated
In order to get there, or anywhere in the Sassi, you have to climb up a quaint series of stairs- very charming and an awesome view/location. Great food within walking distance.
The location is great. Fare was low. Fresh and good locally made products for breakfast.
We got this room for a very good price but: air conditioning was useless and the whole room was covered in moisture. That is the typical condition of any Sasso house in Matera but you don't expect to experience the medieval way of life in a hotel (not hostel). Toilet was way too small and full of stains. One bed was ok while the other was folded out from a low-quality bed-sofa. It was very hard to sleep because of the heat and the moisture that made all our cloth wet. We could get fresh only air from a very-very small window.
Very good location, a very nice terrace with view over the Sasso. The room was good and well furnished.
The only two bad points are inherent of a troglodyte house: little bit humid.
The view of Matera from my room balcony is the most amazing view I have seen in my life. I didn't want to leave. The rooms are comfortable, and the staff is great. We enjoyed so much staying there.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Location and views from balcony.
Breakfast was quite poor and not much on offer seemingly no matter what time you got there. But upside was good coffee from friendly staff.
Fabulous views from rooms & terraces. Good WiFi.
Directions given on the booking.com site were poor.
very good breakfast great location
very small room no wifi in the room very expensive for what it brings
Rented the room for the location and the history... Nice room but a little awkward to get to.
Parking was a little far away, but what do you expect when you stay in such an historic location.
Hard to find. had to park a ways away.
Location and view of the Sassi.
Was a little disappointed with the property. Looked much better online. Room and bath needs an update. We had a small terrace but had to wash the table and chairs before we sat down. Of course, it probably depends on which room you are assigned.
Great, central location with views of the Sassi. Friendly, English-speaking staff, and a wonderful breakfast. Matera was amazing! Eat at Oi Mari just down the steps.
The location is excellent. The hotels are still inside the sassi but do not need to walk around the sassi area with slopes. The view from the terrace is so amazing. Staffs were very friendly.
Not for this hotel but careful there is no public transport to reach to Matera on Sunday/Public holiday! I took taxi from Fernandina station and cost 40 Euro (15min).
the vue from the terrace the location
breakfast a bit too local, suggestion : add plain bread to the selection. thanks!
I loved the view from my room and the location of the hotel was excellent for exploring the Sassi. Breakfast was good and staff helpful.
They advertise 'all rooms are air conditioned' but when I asked about air con I was told it wasn't on at the moment, will be turned on again at the end of October. It was very hot when I was there so my only options were either sleep with balcony door open and get no sleep because of the noise and street lights or close the doors and get no sleep because of the heat. If I had known there was no air con I would not have booked here, I consider this false advertising.
Beautiful view from the balcony facing duomo. Convenient location. A bit tired but charming room. Staffs are friendly and helpful.
No wifi in the room.
Fantastic view of sassi, nice cave room and best breakfast in southern Italy.
The location of Hotel Sassi is superb. The staff (Vivian and Sabrina) were very helpful and pleasant to talk to. They suggested a trip to a 8th Century Bizantyne Cave Church that we would never find ourselves, which was extra ordinary and unique. we stayed in room 301 which is a hike to get to (steps, steps), but well worth it.
Steps, steps:-) Breakfast was very nice and plentiful, but a variety of pizzas for breakfast was a bit too exotic for us (we had cornettos and cappucinos instead). We had to bring the luggage by ourselves from a nearby garage Damascus (very hard to find) - which was a chore to manage on the uphill and cobble stones of the winding streets of Matera.
Wonderful views over the Sassi. Breakfast was good - brioche, pizza, fruit.
Check in on arrival could have been more welcoming (reception busy with a group). After that generally all staff were very helpful.
Wonderful place with fabulous views and great staff. While some might be unhappy about it being located down a number of steps, we did not mind in the least. Just loved being there and loved Matera.
