    Bellissimo hotel ricavato nel cuore dei Sassi. Personale gentilissimo è capace. Un po’ scomodo da raggiungere se si hanno problemi a camminare. Alcune camere dentro le grotte dei Sassi ma con tutti i comfort del grande albergo.

    La ubicación del hotel es más q fantástica, con unas vista extraordinarias. Lo único q no nos gustó fue encontrarnos bastantes pelos dentro de la cama pienso q hay q tener mucho cuidado con eso daba la sensación que no habían cambiado las sábanas, me decepcionó por lo demás es un hotel perfecto para recorrer matera , el desayuno estaba bien.

    Autentisk hotel i speciel by

    Hotellet er bygget ind i hulerne og det giver et interessant sted med nogle udfordringer på komforten. De opvejes dog rigeligt af stedets autencitet og beliggenhed i den gamle by med udsigt over byen og til domkirken. Morgenmaden var god og lokalet er en oplevelse. Igen en kæmpe hule. Da vi var i Matera i april var der så mange mennesker i byen at det ikke lykkedes at få et bord på en restaurant. Alt var forudbestilt. Vi fandt nogle panini i en lokal bod og de var fine nok. Kommer vi tilbage vil vi sørge for bordbestilling

    噂通り、ホテルの部屋から見える景色は最高です! ガタガタ道で一人でスーツケースを持ってホテルまで行くのがとても大変でした。 どこから入ってきたのか部屋にムカデみたいなのがいて、怖かった。 部屋は古いですが丁寧に掃除されています。 朝食もイタリアの他のホテルと比べて、良いと思います!

    Would not go back here myself or recommend

    It seemed that the staff didn't have any time for the guests. We didn't feel very welcome to be honest. Everything was very formal and we missed the friendliness we have seen in other places we stayed in Italy. We were happy to stay here only one night. It looked like they had enough business and didn't want to spend time to give guests the best experience in Matera
