A great hotel and very unique. Our room was carved out of the rock. We had access to a balcony where we could enjoy a view of the town and valley. We took advantage of the spa which, like the rooms, is carved out of the rock. Staff were friendly and breakfast was good. The hotel is centrally located in...

When we arrived at Locanda di San Martino, it was beyond reality. We could not believe a hotel was carved into stone walls known Sasses. The rooms were not stuffy as we had a window for fresh exchange and the view at night was beautiful. The hotel captured the essence of Matera. Be sure to dine at Soul Kitchen as...

This is one of the budget cave hotels in Matera and you get what you pay for. The 'cave' experience depends on the room you get but even then I think there are more authentic looking rooms in other properties (but based on our research they were more expensive as well.) The rooms have been modernised quite a bit and...

Locanda di San Martino is located in the middle of the historical district. Each cave dwelling has been modernized and updated with modern amenities but still maintains the cave feel. Each room is different and varying in size depending on how far back the original cave dwelling sat back in to the rock. My bathroom had a shower (no tub),...

The Hotel has a distinguished feature to have impressive Spa within real tunnels of tufa rocks... it is really impressive!!!! Also the breakfast service with Piano being Played was really classy!!! At the same time I picked up a room in the underground which really provided the feeling to stay in a cellar rather than in a hotel.... claustrophobic! Also...

Wonderful family room. Impeccable and spacious. Kids loved to run in the stairs around the hotel and they loved the jet tub. Then, we enjoyed nice wine on our deck overlooking amazing Matera. The roman bath were very nice, although a bit crowded, make sure to reserve your spot if you want to soak in these special caves. Breakfast was...

The spa looks just like the picture! Beautiful warm water and in a cave! What more can you want? We had a lovely room, also into a cave, and fantastic breakfast. Staff couldn't do more, even opening the spa early as we had to leave the hotel after breakfast.

We stayed here with a group tour and absolutely loved it. Our room was the Cisterna, I believe #4, and it was wonderful. Very large room up a few steps from the entrance and next door to the breakfast room yet quiet. Our room had an old cisterna in the floor covered with glass or plexiglass. There was lighting in...

Please go. Yes, it's spendy. It's simply perfect in every way. The staff work very hard to see that your every need is met. And the location could not be better. Tricky to find initially, but seriously, the Sassi district is a tough go for a non-local at best. Make the effort, it's def. worth it.

We booked this hotel because it was set in a cave and knew nothing about location or the area. The hotel was not too difficult to find (with a satnav!) and on arrival they parked our car in a nearby parking garage (10 Euros per day) - we did not need the car for the rest of the stay. The...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Locanda di San Martino lies in the heart of Matera's Sassi Historical District, and at the same time it is conveniently located at a very short distance (100 meters) from the city center. The Locanda radiates outward from the deconsecrated church of San Martino and the street of the same name, through a series of balconies that enjoy a sunny exposure and a wonderful view of the Sasso Barisano. There are twenty-two guest rooms situated on four levels, renovated with the greatest care in order to respect their original forms as single homes. ... more   less
