  • 10.0Exceptional

    This is a fantastic little boutique hotel where rooms are 'caves'. The staff were very accommodating and provided excellent service throughout our stay, from coffee on arrival, through booking our restaurant and an excellent breakfast. One feature is that the hotel's wines are from their own vineyards, very reasonable priced and the 'Kataos' variety, a Primitivo from around Gioa del Colle, we tried was excellent.

    Beautiful property and attention to detail. Including an amazing breakfast. Minor issues with air conditioning. Suggestion would be to change keys. Entering and locking doors with old locks and keys is very inconvenient. Difficult to work with

    Matera’s Calm Oasis

    Il Palazzotto is a small, classy, elegant hotel in the magical Italian hill town of Matera. Our room, an actual cave, was unlike anything we’ve experienced in over 50 years of travel. Build and amenities were all excellent. The service was genuine, comprehensive and welcoming but not pushy. Breakfast was delicious.. We had a minor travel emergency during our stay and the hotel staff were caring and efficient and stayed the course until the problem was resolved.
