We stayed here for 2 nights in one of the cave rooms a short walk from the office. We were above one of the historic caves that was fun to explore. There were 3 of us in our room (suite) and we had plenty of room. We knew breakfast was included but were pleasantly surprised to find our own kitchen... More

What a nice place to hang your hat in Matera.these cave apartments (sassi) were very comfortable. Beds were very comfortable. Had alot of food, a refrigerator, and a stove for your meals and snakcs. Very centrally located. No parking on site, but for a fee your car will be picked up and delivered when you are ready to leave.

Nice hotel in the caves. Rooms close by the registration office, about 100 yards up the stairs from the office. Our room had a mini kitchen and patio where we had breakfast and evening wine. We were over an original cave with the cisterns. AC worked well though it cools down at night. Owner takes you up to the parking... More

We visited Matera in early June and stayed at Hotel San Giorgio, although opting not to stay in one of their cave suites as my husband has an aversion to even a hint of humidity. Our apartment verged on luxurious - a small, completely equipped kitchen, living/dining room with stairs leading to a loft area with seating, roomy bedroom, and... More

We were upgraded to an apartment above the office of this charming hotel in the sassi. I understand that the other rooms are situated away from this building, and more in the caves themselves. This was no problem for us. Our apartment was large and quite lovely in its local furnishing. Our problem was that the bathroom was tucked away... More

The hotel is spread across the lower part of the city in various caves, rooms, etc. A different experience that would have been enjoyable had it not been for the rudeness of the owner concerning some problems that we encountered with our room. Without going into great detail, suffice it to say that we were treated with such anger that... More

We were after the 'cave' experience and got it. We were fortunate to stay in 2 different rooms (Granai and Bifora). The rooms are a 5 minute walk from the main office. Granai had a nice balcony and easy access to the private caves beneath, which you must explore! Bifora was outside the gate on a little corridor but you... More

As we searched for a “home” in Matera, the magnificent city in Basilicata, we looked at several lovely choices set in the cave districts, Sasso Barisano and Caveoso. The S.
