    very friendly and heart- warming staffs. Though I didn't reserve pick us up service, just told that we would arrive at about 9:00 by sleeping train, the hotel transfer staff was waitining for us. It was very suprising. And, they serves very great breakfast. not so much variety, amount, but very good taste, I have never eaten such a nice mozzarella cheese and focaccias. The room is also good, traditional sassi style, but stylish designed. The room we stayed was not expensive, but it is enough even for honeymoon.

    the staff and owner were wonderful and particularly helpful in rearranging some travel reservations. the public areas, breakfast and location were perfect

    the loft room had no sitting area which we thought we were getting

    It was magical - as close to heaven as one could imagine - and the breakfast!! Chocolate cake, bruschette, fresh peaches... The staff was lovely - friendly, informed and professional. The linens crisp; the bath by Starck - doesn't get better than this. The architect/designer has treated these sassi with respect and integrity. You have every modern comfort, yet nothing intrudes, or imposes on their history. We'll be back.

    This is a beautiful boutique hotel and we loved it. Very special, unusual and magical. We were well treated and their breakfast was beyond. This was part of our honeymoon and it was a very romantic place.

    If u want to be spoiled, go to this hotel. Unique design plus big luxury bathtub is only appetiser. The fresh smell from the linen guarantee a whole night good sleep. Bonus comes from the coffee aroma, u won't believe how good the coffee is! Thanks heaps for your hospitality, dear Roberta and Michele! You guys are unbeatable!

    Cannot fault the discreet and warm service of the staff. This is an exceptionally beautiful hotel which is symathetically designed, true to the nature and history of Matera.Not sure this place can be beat. Fantastic and inspiring.

    Staying in a 'cave' was a great experience. The room was quite authentic, but also comfortable. The air conditioner was a little weak/slow to catch up when you come in from being out and the lighting in the bathroom was poor, but hey, its a cave.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    Incredibly unique and the most memorable hotel of our trip. Hard to beat sleeping in a real cave but with modern fixtures and beautiful linens. The subtle accent lighting and thoughtfully placed candles highlighted the primitive feeling of the space. Staff were friendly and helpful. Great location as it was tucked away from the crowds but still a relatively short walk to sites and restaurants. We traveled with our two teenage children and they liked it as much as we did. Would recommend it to anyone searching for something truly special.

    The breakfast. We were told that it was the local food typical of what would have been eaten when the caves were occupied. There wasn't enough and it didn't taste all that good.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    We considered our stay to be the highlight of our trip- Matera is amazing, the old town and the lovely new town. The outlook was beautiful, looking down over the valley and across to the ancient caves; and our cave was glorious!! All the details have been lovingly and tastefully thought out; the beds were comfy and we loved the silence! Thanks to the friendly staff and the Chef (breakfast was wonderful)! All in all it was a magical experience!!!

    Nothing- all wonderful

  • Family with children
    7.4

    We booked this hotel to experience the Sassi Unesco site! The simplicity of the cabe rooms is realistic and very atmospheric. Breakfast was included and consisted of locally produced buffet style. Not entirely to our taste, but adequate. Staff were lovely and very welcoming making it a really nice stay.

    Toilet facilities are not very private but that is being really picky!
