This hotel is in Matera, city full of caves on rock face I have been before in cave apartments in Cappadocia, but this was a different one. There were lots of steps to reach this apartment and the cars were not allowed to park near. But they had a valet parking system and a helping hand to carry the suitcases...

My husband, 17 year old daughter, and I stayed at the Residence San Giorgio in the Granai apartment for 4 nights. It was overall one of our top 5 experiences we’ve ever had – the room, the location, accessibility to everything nearby. Nearly perfect. My review is based on our expectations and our desire for a mid range hotel with...

The couple at the reception was the nicest, we Wendy there with the car tô check in and they took us to find a parking spot outside then drove us back tô the Sassi. The room was big and neat. Good breakfast, awesome location. Highly reccommended!

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Dear guest, Thank you for taking your precious time to review my hotel and also my person.
