Palazzo Gattini Luxury Hotel
Ranked #2 of 30 Hotels in Matera
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 September 2012


This place was amazing a mix of the old and the modern. All the rooms are different and my favorite thing about this place was the huge bathroom. The staff were friendly and helpful. On our last night we had dinner on the roof terrace and it was fine dining at its best. We had 3 courses plus free amuse bouche from the chef. When I return to Matera I will be staying here.

Extremely elegant hotel in the heart of one of the most interesting cities in Italy. Great architecture and decoration. Rooms are all different with a superb attention to details. Hotel is near the Duomo. Breakfast is varied and very tasty. Staff is kind and always helpful. I would certainly recommend it.

Room Tip: A room with the view on the cathedral

So, if you want to know what it is like to sleep in a palace this is the place. Wonderfully restored and decorated, the property strikes the right balance betwen modern convenience (the handicapped facilities were first class) and the feeling that you are in a place that is very old. The room we had overlooked the Cathedral which unfortunately like the hotel restaurant was closed (although the breakfast was second to none). The good news is that the nearby "Il Cantuccio Ristorante" is one of the best restaurants in this part of Italy. Not sure where they parked the car, but it will take a while before the valet returns, so plan ahead. Heed other reviewers with the caution that the property is difficult to find, while clearly next to the Cathedral that sits atop the town!

Beautifully restored and unbelievably located in a piece of yet to be discovered paradise. Hotel is restored without sparing and expense. ( Air conditioning struggles due to power supply issues for the area, but the walls are so thick, from beautiful sand stone that it would stay cool except in full summer. All rooms are a good size with great ensuites and king size beds.
Take a stroll around the town, you will enjoy the workout, very up and down the hill side, and marvel in the history. Visit before others discover this area and it becomes too expensive and looses its historic charm. Enjoy a drink on the elfresco dining area.

Splendid hotel on top of Matera's oldest part of town, in front of the XIIIth century cathedral, set in a beautiful antique palace with all modern facilities, very good cusine served on a rooftop terrace with unique view over the oldest part of town and perfect service.
We spent two unforgettable days, visiting one of the most fascinating ancient towns of the south of Italy!
We warmly recommend it.

It doesn't get any better than this. This hotel is simply amazing. Our room -- or should I say rooms -- was over the top luxurious. The hotel does a masterful job of blending ancient and modern. Room cost was 179 euros per night, and I can honestly say I've never gotten more luxury formthr money. Excellent breakfast at the restaurant next door, and attentive service even if the english skills of the front desk staff left a little to be desired.
