Staff was efficient, spoke fluent English Comfortable room and bed- quiet Lovely breakfast buffet Taxi was able to drive to nearby point to take us back to the station
Internet available in public areas only
This was the second time I stayed in this hotel.I had remembered this hotel is situated in a good location which overlooked the Sassi from the terrace. I loved the town especially at nitght.I was happy to be able to see the beautiful night view in the hotel when unfortunately it was raining and I gave up going outside.
Everything was great. I have nothing to complain about.
authentic sassi hotel, wonderful view from my room, price reasonable for location
breakfast - cold pizza, not enough fruit and other items to eat
I have a wonderful experience here. Although the location is near a bar, it is acceptable.
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).
