Where to Stay In Matera – Tips & Advice

The 11 Best Hotels in Matera, Italy

1. Palazzo Gattini Luxury Hotel

Matera hotel with view and balcony.
The best modern luxury hotel in Matera with beautiful suites, stunning views, and a great location right beside the Duomo. The spa and Turkish bath are wonderful.

2. Sextantio Le Grotte Della Civita

Good cave hotel in Matera.
The most romantic cave hotel in Matera. Absolutely stunning. The original cave dwellings have been restored to luxurious perfection.

3. Palazzotto Residence & Winery

Luxury place to stay in Matera.
Magical! These original cave houses were redone by a local architect and no hotel in Matera feels quite so authentic. If forced to choose, I’d say this is the best boutique hotel in Matera. (The Family Suite is huge and sleeps a family of four.)

4. Corte San Pietro

Boutique cave hotel in Matera.
Beautiful cave hotel located in the ancient Sasso Caveoso and surrounded by impossibly tangled alleys and stairwells. (The Suite with Terrace is one of the better cave rooms in Matera for families.)

5. Sant’Angelo Luxury Resort

Luxury resort in Matera.
Beautiful cave suites in the heart of the Sassi of Matera and within an easy walk of the major landmarks.

6. Palazzo Viceconte

Hotel with kitchen in Matera, Italy.
A converted aristocratic residence with a splendid courtyard and ideal location. Perched high above the Sassi with some of the best views of any hotel in Matera.

7. L’Hotel In Pietra

Hotel with hot tub in Matera.
Once a church, then an aristocratic house, and now a boutique hotel. Located in the Sasso Barisano and within walking distance of all of central Matera. Several suites have private indoor hot tubs.

8. Sassisuite

Hotel with view in Matera.
A classic Italian-style B&B but with plenty of luxury. Beautiful views over the Sassi and Old Town. (The Standard Suite sleeps a family of five. The One-Bedroom suites sleeps a family of four.)

9. Palazzo Del Duca Luxury Hotel

Boutique hotel in Matera, Italy.
Brand new hotel stylishly detailed and decorated. The breakfast cave room is the something out of a dream. The suites with private jacuzzis and plunge pools are worth the upgrade.

10. B&B Solosud

Airbnb in Matera.
One of the best Matera hotels in the mid-range category. And owner Paola makes it feel like a home. The catch is it gets fully booked far in advance – even in the low season. (Superior Doubles have 2 single beds, 1 double bed, and sleep a family of four.)

11. Palazzo Margherita

Coppola family resort near Matera.
Located a 45 minute drive from Matera this idyllic hilltop setting in the village of Bernalda feels more like a country home than a hotel. Francis Ford Coppola discovered the forgotten palazzo while visiting his grandfather’s hometown and restored it to stunning perfection – though keeping all the original art work and furnishings. Suites are huge and there’s a nice swimming pool. Meals are marvelous homemade creations and one of the highlights of staying here.
