Score from 270 reviews Excellent
Position of hotel was excellent. Room was very well appointed and bed was comfortable.
Hotel a little difficult to find.
We enjoyed our stay at the Torretta, we were welcomed by Mario e Valentina who looked after us in every way - even the special breakfast request. See you again guys! Alla prossima...
Mario, the owner, has lived and led the modern turnaround of Matera from poverty to the fascinating city that exists today. Mario was one of the people who uncovered over 150 "rock" churches and is a former mayor of Matera. He was more than willing to share his experiences and is a most gracious host. The view of the town from the hotel is exceptional. Matera is a wonderful blend of an ancient town with modern amenities. Don't miss it!
Finding a parking place was a minor problem. It would help to have a map of where to park.
Toretta ai Sassi has the very best view in Matera. I was astonished when I first saw it. We later walked around Matera 3 times and never saw a better vantage point. We also really liked the location. Driving in and out and parking was very easy. It's located sort of between the two main areas: head down the street and veer right and you enter the older sassi district, veer to the left and you walk up to the lively piazzas and the newer part. We are very glad we stayed here!
5 star B&B.
Surpassed our expectations. We had a little difficulty in finding Torretta Ai Sassi on arrival but apart from that it was magnificent. Mario and his daughter are wonderful hosts and they could not have been more helpful. The view was fantastic and the breakfast was delicious. Had a most enjoyable stay and would definitely go back. Thank you Mario and Valentino.
The location.great view.
Perfect location Great advice from the owner Great breakfast
Homemade breakfast made by mama, most comfortable bed, new rooms, top quality bath fixtures. Warm family owner-host, great service.
12 min walk to Sassi, uphill on the return, but plenty of free parking.
We liked everything, the location with a fantastic view, the host who was so helpful and informative. Then I must mention the breakfast, everything was so tasty and nicely served.
It can be hard to get a parking place but we were lucky.
it is our 2nd visit to Matera and to stay in the same B&B. Everything is perfect. The B&B has very good location, wifi is always avaialbe :-) . Beautiful view of Materia. We will be back!
Very quiet, private and terrific view of the Sassi. Owners were wonderfully attentive and helpful.
Location, breakfast, room, and above all the friendliness of Mario and Rosaria, the owners. Although we had high expectations based on reviews from previous vacationers, we were even more pleasantly surprised by the overall experience. Matera is a great place to visit and La Torretta dei Sassi is the ideal place to stay. Grazie Mario e Rosaria per averci fatti sentire come a casa e per la vostra passione per la bella Matera
A bit difficult to find at first, but Sig Focaccia was very helpfull.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Friendly, informative and welcoming owners. Superb breakfast, with local specialities. Wonderful views over the gorge and towards the old town from the terrace. Exceptionally well- converted, comfortable and unique cave dwelling conversion.
We liked everything here, Mario , the owner was so helpful and charming. Thanks to his advices we could see really amazing places (we hadn't know about their existence before). The room was cozy and very clean. Both the room and the bathroom are smartly and nice designed. The hotel is in old town Sassi, just some steps and you are amongst historical surrounding. The breakfast was delicious and served nicely ,accompanied with a smile and warm Buongiorno from Mario.
This B & B is only a little over a year old. It is impeccably clean and in an excellent location, with views out over the river as well as back to the centro storico in Matera. Best of all was BREAKFAST! The food was excellent. The staff very helpful. Daughter Valentina speaks very good English. This is THE place to stay in Matera, but with only 3 rooms, be sure to reserve ahead.
Nothing. Everything was very, very good.
Too bad we could not give an 11. Perfect B&B. Mario, the owner, is an avalanche of information. We did what he 'ordered' us to do, and had an excellent time in and around Matera. Do follow his lead.
As other guests have stated so clearly, this is a great place to stay in Matera. The owner is extremely helpful, the breakfast fabulous, the views fantastic, the room warm and comfortable (we stayed in Dec), and if we return to Matera, we will definitely stay at Terretta Ai Sassi again!
The very best place we stayed in this Province ! We absolutely loved our stay at Ai Torretta. We were traveling with my parents on a special trip and Mario and Valentina couldn't have made us feel more welcome and comfortable. The property is charming with by far the best and most magical view of Matera. The breakfast was home made by Mario's wife from some of the freshest sources in Matera and every delicious and subtle detail was appreciated. Valentina spent the entire afternoon with us showing us unique aspects of this amazing city and Mario was able to arrange for the most wonderful restaurants and special museum trips. We couldn't have been happier with the warm, genuine and personal hospitality of our hosts and this beautiful Inn. Don't hesitate to stay here. Bellisimo ! Grazie Mille.
I loved everything and disliked nothing !
I think this must be one of the best locations I've ever slept in. The staff is extremely friendly and explains where to go, etcetera. The room is beautiful and feels like you're sleeping in a cave, only with all comfort you can wish for. The breakfast is almost over-the-top; fresh made pies, cakes, fruit and what not. Perfect.
- Humidity in the room is not perfect for people with lung conditions, but that's obvious. We stayed one night, which was perfect to still be able to experience this gem. - A bit hard to find due to the almost similar street names in and outside the sassi; but not a real problem.
the owner suggestions and kindness
the personalised yet disceet and kindly attention; first class facilities - of special interest due to current architectural issues of sustainable renovation & overall aesthetics - and it is obvious that a gorgeous and diverse rainforest garden is in process on the upper level :)
it is hard to identify anything of significance, but I was tired on arrival having had a stressful & hot train ride (= standing from Bari) + some difficulty finding the residence (not a problem as I like mystery), so a cup of tea or alternative refreshment would have been appreciated on arrival !
Great location; friendly, helpfull and interesting host; good breakfast; incredible panoramic view from the terrace.
This B&B is the best we have ever stayed and it has the perfect location in Sassi. Beautiful paranorma view at the terrace, rich breakfast... The owner is a very kind and friendly person. The location is not difficult to fine, there are a lot of signs alone the way. We feel very comfortable staying there and feel like a home :-) . We will be back!
Friendly welcome, fantastic view, great breakfast, unique experience sleeping in a renovated sassi. Owner was very helpful in making suggestions for visiting city and explaining history of the sassi.
Pack light rather than lug a large suitcase up the hill to the room.
