Luxury cave stay
This is an experience worth trying. The room is located in a great area, close to all the sites, dining, and bars. The breakfast was more than expected. It was truly a great experience. Cannot recommend this enough.

The property is located unique. The reception and the breakfast room are inside an old cave church and our room was a completely independent "sasso", clean, full of comforts and amenities. The staff is amazing, super welcoming, kind and helpful. Our second day we asked for a breakfast to go since we were planning to leave earlier for a tour and they gave us a bag full of food and drinks, sweet and salty, enough for a group of people that we used also for lunch. Also the buffet breakfast was very rich and the food homemade. The location is just perfect close to everything. I can only recommend this bed&breakfast.

Perfect Location in a Very Magical Place!
This was THE standout part of our 3 week vacation. Matera is like no other place. I loved it! And, our "cave" hotel was perfect! HUGE and in a perfect location, right in the heart of the Sassi. Good restaurants close by. Great breakfast and amazing staff. Everyone was friendly and helpful. I would only stay here if I ever get a chance to go back.

Staying at the Thymus Residence was truly a unique and unforgettable experience. It was above my expectations in every way. We were greeted by Michela, the receptionist who offered us a beverage upon our arrival, she was very helpful in providing us information about things to see and providing a map of the area. Our room, which was in a cave, had all the amenities you could ask for in a hotel: Large, Comfortable bed, modern bathroom with wonderful toiletries and air conditioning, the breakfast was delightful with a wonderful selection of breakfast items..Matera is an amazing city and should not be missed .

This was one of the most unique hotels we have stayed! We stayed three nights. The staff were so friendly and accommodating making sure everything was taken care of during our visit. Pierre was exceptional! He called to set up dinner reservations, car service, and gave great recommendations for what to see and do. Matera is a place to visit! It is a relaxing, off the beaten path place with wonderful food and wine. Night time is beautiful with the lights.
