“Underwhelmed by cave experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2011

I booked this B&B based on the reviews Tripadvisor and unfortunately I was quite underwhelmed by our stay here. There were no clear directions to the B&B while it is not easy to find - it would be a good idea to tell guests how to get to the B&B. We had a room that was not located in the B&B itself, but just off the Piazza Duomo. The location itself is good, but the room was very spartan and the worst thing, there was no window and no fresh air at all. There is some kind of ventilation system, which was very noisy, but that didn't seem to work at all. Because of a lack of a window or even just a vent shaft, it was also the darkest room I have ever slept in, which made it all feel a bit claustrophobic. I think we had the worst room of the B&B, but be aware and ask for a room with a window when you choose to stay here.

Antonia, the owner of the B&B is very nice and hospitable, so no complaints there. Also the breakfast, served in the kitchen of Antonia's home, while simple is nice with home made cake, coffee and bread.

It was just great staying there. First: call them when you get there, they gonna pic you up! (btw it is included in the service, so don't worry they don't charge you for the ride) the rooms are very clean, the owners are very welcoming and outgoing, It is very central and whatever you wanna know, you can ask the owners, they are happy to help you. AND when u get there, ask them a restaurant to go, they gonna tell u the best place ( with low prices too) where you can eat. the food in this restaurant is like from a italian "nonna", soo delicious! (but i can't remember the name of it, but is close to the B&B)
the breakfast is simple BUT all u eat is homemade, i loved the jelly she made! you eat in their home, where u feel like home!
Grazie a voi siete una famiglia molto gentile, era bellissima di stare nel vostro B&B e mangiara la collatione nella vostra casa!

Well, don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, it was a wonderful week end with my husband in this unique & peculiar city.Tonia and Giuseppe, the hosts, were very nice, and most important, the room and the bathroom were very clean. It's just that it was a little different from what I expected after reading the reviews: for instance I didn't know that the room was located in another street from where I had breakfast, which was served in the family small kitchen on a very small table, and not on any terrace looking on the sassi( it's just a balcony, anyway). I didn't know that the room might be very humid and warm, since there's no air circulation: moreover I have to share the house with another guest, so I couldn't keep the door open. He left the door of his room open when he left, so I noticed that his room had a tv, while there was no tv in mine.
I really appreciate Tonia's efforts to make the guests feel confortable, it's just that I think it's fear to be objective to the tripadvisor' s members. That's why I like and use tripadvisor everytime I travel.

We had a very nice stay with b&b Nel Muro. The room we stayed in is very (very) spacious. The bathroom en bedroom are both very clean, also because they are brand new. Anyone who travels and sleeps in b&b's knows that it can be very creepy to touch a bathroomfloor or wall. Not in this place!
One piece of advise: approach the b&b from the piazza duomo, not from 'down' in the sassi area. Many stairs await you... that is if you can find it from down there.
A price for her b&b hangs on the livingroom-wall of the B&B owner: it is wel deserved!

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay here. The room was large, but cozy and comfortable. The location was great (near the Cathedral). Our hostess, Antonia, was wonderful; smiling and gracious and helpful.
It had an outdoor terrace with views over the sassi and gravina.
And it was a good value.

Tonia and Guiseppe are wonderful hosts. Although Tonia speaks little english the use of Internet translator comes in very handy. The room was spacious, so clean and well decorated. Tonia is the perfect host and breakfast in the morning,at your convenience, is wonderful. Wireless internet in the rooms would be a good addition to the rooms. Price is competitive and good value. Wonderful view of the Sassi from the balcony. Tonia is helpful with arranging for a guide of the city if you are interested.

I'm not sure how my son selected Matera as one of our stops, but it's a fascinating town, and very charming. A great place to visit.

B&B Nel Muro was wonderful. The breakfasts were great, but the panoramic view from our outdoor breakfast table was even better.

Tonia and her husband were very helpful and kind. The two connected rooms we had were great. You definitely felt like you were experiencing life in a small Italian town.

The only downside was the parking, which was several minutes' walk, but well worth it.

We had a great time and would highly recommend Matera and B&B Nel Muro.
