The room was small but nice with a large bathroom. Had a view of the old town. Matera is an awe inspiring place and it was quite an experience to sleep in the cave. The only drawback to the hotel is that it was tough to find but once you got there it was great.

This hotel has a great location---close to tourist sights. Was here with a tour group. Room was small but very comfortable--a bit humid but supplied with a dehumidifier in the room. The breakfast buffet was short on nonsweet choices but the apple juice was outstanding. Service was good and was able to get ice cubes upon request from the bar...

We book a suite which was the dearest room on booking.com for four with a lounge area and terrace when we arrived we were given a room for 3 no terrace, only two glasses, no lounge area very disappointing. The suite was already taken next door rub salt in the wound. The hotel didn't give a stuff because we were...

If you can only stay one day it would still be worth the trip, but you won't want to leave. The rooms themselves are lovely, beds are good & firm, the view from the terrace is fantastic day or night. A bowl of fresh fruit welcomes you. And then there's the spa--perfect temperature steam, lovely clean showers. And how to...

We got lucky and got the room that is probably an addition. It was very small but it had a floor to ceiling window that opens up to a panoramic view of the town. To make up to for the room size, we had a small patio outside our room . Incredible place in terms of the view. The breakfast...

A great hotel and very unique. Our room was carved out of the rock. We had access to a balcony where we could enjoy a view of the town and valley. We took advantage of the spa which, like the rooms, is carved out of the rock. Staff were friendly and breakfast was good. The hotel is centrally located in...

When we arrived at Locanda di San Martino, it was beyond reality. We could not believe a hotel was carved into stone walls known Sasses. The rooms were not stuffy as we had a window for fresh exchange and the view at night was beautiful. The hotel captured the essence of Matera. Be sure to dine at Soul Kitchen as...

This is one of the budget cave hotels in Matera and you get what you pay for. The 'cave' experience depends on the room you get but even then I think there are more authentic looking rooms in other properties (but based on our research they were more expensive as well.) The rooms have been modernised quite a bit and...

Locanda di San Martino is located in the middle of the historical district. Each cave dwelling has been modernized and updated with modern amenities but still maintains the cave feel. Each room is different and varying in size depending on how far back the original cave dwelling sat back in to the rock. My bathroom had a shower (no tub),...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Locanda di San Martino lies in the heart of Matera's Sassi Historical District, and at the same time it is conveniently located at a very short distance (100 meters) from the city center. The Locanda radiates outward from the deconsecrated church of San Martino and the street of the same name, through a series of balconies that enjoy a sunny exposure and a wonderful view of the Sasso Barisano. There are twenty-two guest rooms situated on four levels, renovated with the greatest care in order to respect their original forms as single homes. ... more   less
