Casino Ridola Hotel Relais
Ranked #14 of 30 Hotels in Matera
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Some twenty minutes walk from the fascinating old town of Matera, this quiet, intimate hotel is perfect for those wishing for a good base outside town with free parking and comfortable surroundings. Breakfast is adequate and the staff very helpful and pleasant. No restaurant but plenty of good places to eat in Matera. The room was comfortable, en suite shower perfect and the pool looked as though it would be pleasant when in use.

Room Tip: The steep walk back from the town may deter those with walking difficulties.

I booked this hotel because we were travelling by car and I wanted somewhere to park and have the car secure. It is a little walk (about 750 meters) from the main town area but is on a hill with pleasant views. The room was spotless, the bed comfy and the shower excellent. Breakfast was very nice without being extravagant. The car park was locked overnight and the staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel looks like an old villa (although one photo suggests it may have once been an electrical manufacturing business) which had been tastefully renovated. It has a lift to the upstairs bedroom and a lovely garden to sit out in the sunshine as well as a pool which was too cold to use in early May.

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.

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.
