“quietly refreshing”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

This was a perfect spot to stay in Matera, close to everything, yet enough removed to be quiet & serene. Lovely breakfast, a welcoming gift, accommodating staff, comfortable & nicely decorated. Bella!

This hotel is intimate and comfortable, offering an excellent breakfast and with very friendly staff. Located a bit out of the way--about ten minutes on foot to the heart of the old town. Good value for money.

I just spend 2 nights in this small, well appointed hotel in Matera. I was greeted by a friendly, smiling face. There was no problem with English as one would expect in a small town in Italy. They were helpful in giving directions and even ordered a massage to given in my room. The room was a nice size and clean.

Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

Stayed for one night, room of a good 4 star standard including welcome drinks making facilities ( unusual in Italy). Nice large room with a big bed, neutral decoration & all modern facilities including free broadband.

Hotel is in a safe residential area about 10-15 min walk from most of the attractions & not so easy to find. Good views over surrounding valley. Breakfast had a good choice of cereals, fruit, yoghurts, pastries, cold cuts and bakery. Hosts welcoming & helpful with restaurant & gelato tips. Pool looked welcoming although did not use it in October.

Overall a good choice for a stop in Matera if you want free off street parking & don't mind a 10 minute walk into the centre of town.

Lovely family run, small hotel in a residential setting. The staff were very pleasant and very helpful. It is a short 10 – 15 minutes walk to see the Sassi town of Matera. Lovely clean pool and you can hire swimming towels for 2 Euros.

Room Tip: This hotel does not have a lift. We asked for and received a ground floor room.

What a lovely hotel! Only small but all that we needed and the staff and owners were so friendly and helpful - Hello and best wishes to Serena, Paola, Alessandria and to the owner Cosimo and his wife who gave us a glass of limoncello and some homemade tiramisu one evening! The rooms and grounds were immaculate, the shower was fantastic; small pool and garden area well maintained; the hotel was located in a quiet residential area at the top of a hill but only 10minutes walk to the town centre. Matera is beautiful - very unusual and interesting with its old sassi areas - less touristy than other well known cities in Italy - it was beautiful....

Wonderful hotel in Matera!

The information provided to us at arrival was very helpful, including some excellent restaurant recommendations in the area. The location was a 10 minute walk to the city centre.

The rooms were clean and spacious (good size bed & powerful shower). We found the breakfast was adequate, a good selection of fruits, yoghurts, cereals, as well as local pastries etc. Unfortunately we only stayed for one night so didn't get to enjoy the pool but it looked very inviting. Lovely stay!
