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.

The most amazing place!
We have never stayed in a nicer place. First of all, staying in a cave was amazing. The room was fantastic and the location perfect to walk everywhere. The breakfast was OUTSTANDING. We loved every moment of being here from the people who couldn't do enough for you to the beautiful place itself. When we return to Matera, we will stay here again for sure! Thank you for an amazing night!!

Amazing all around - service with a capital S
Amazing location, great amenities, beautiful rooms, all the trimmings and more :-) Honestly impressive value especially in a touristy location such as Matera - I was really , really impressed as well with the professional qualities and kindness of the staff. A must if you are ever in Matera! I, for one, will try to make it as often as I can and find an available room at the Palazzotto as it will now be hard to find anything that compares!

Great place , not a great welcome. Mixed bag sadl
We had a difficult and disappointing start to our stay but once discussed at check out with a very helpful member of staff we felt much better . The room was lovely as was the breakfast room . Nothing hot offered at breakfast . Would ask for a little tour and info when you check in . Our room number 7 was sadly on a busy ish ( for Matera ) walkway which was a bit annoying as really wanted to sleep in as we had a busy week and this was our first comfy bed ! The hotel is lovely and most staff are wonderful.

A truly exceptional stay in an incredlible city.
An absolutely spectacular hotel in an incredible location. The room was clean, comfortable & beautifully decorated & presented. The reception, lounge & breakfast area was exceptional and the included breakfast was fantastic. My wife & I had a 2 night say, but could easily have stayed a full week (or more). Staff were great, with some excellent restaurant recommendations & expert tips on what to see & do in Matera. We cannot recommend Il Palazzotto highly enough.
