Stayed at Il Belvedere for 3 nights and it was better than we expected. The location on the edge of Sassi and a terrasse with a Sassi-view is perfect. If you travel by car it's possible to drive all the way to the front door. Staff is very nice and helpful, the rooms are extremly clean and spacious, at least...

Thought I had died an gone to heaven. The Belvedere is more like a hotel than a B&B in terms of amenities, but believe there are only 9 rooms. No matter. We were welcomed by the hostess at reception and shown our room and given information and she answered all our questions. Our room was large, bright and very clean....

Il Belvedere is a very Nice hotel in Matera. Magnificent view from the terrace to the old city Sassi. Breathaking view! The staff was very friendly, the rooms were spacious and clean - and the breakfast was very good.

We stayed three nights at Il Belvedere and loved everything about it. I can imagine no better location. Views from the hotel patio are nothing short of jaw dropping as you look out over the sassis, the gorge and the murge. Early morning sunshine on Matera is like a spotlight. Sit and enjoy the Il Belvedere' s spectacular breakfast while...

It feels a real privilege to swing open the wrought iron gate into Il Belvedere's sunken stone and flower bedecked courtyard straight off the long pavement through the Caveosa sassi. We stayed in a barrel vaulted room with a bathroom carved out of rock - small but characterful, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Excellent breakfast on the sunny stone terrace with...

A gem of a place. Location is excellent. Just outside the centre but 5 minutes walk away. The staff are efficient and courteous with good English. The breakfast was simply wonderful with a huge selection of quality food. You eat on the terrace with hands down the best view of Matera and the gorge. One minor point. We stayed in...

This BnB is located in one the most amazing towns we have visited. It's situation on side of hill with terrace overlooking a panoramic vista is breathtaking. The history and stories behind the town are incredibly interesting and thought provoking. The room we had was spacious clean and extremely comfortable. We have advised family and friends to make sure it...

This is a small, central B&B. Plus points: very helpful staff (especially when the sole became detached from my shoe!), spectacular view from the breakfast terrace; proximity to the main attractions and restaurants; really good breakfast; clean. Biggest plus point of all: it's in Matera, the loveliest place I've ever visited in all of Italy. The Sassi are literally on...

There can't be many better views than the one from the balcony of Il Belvedere, aptly named! The cave rooms are really fantastic, literally you stay in a luxury cave. Everything has been thought of, staff are brilliant, great vibe, top place. Will definitely stay there again.
