The first hotel in the sassi is set in an 18th-century rambling edifice in Sasso Barisano with some rooms in caves and some not. Singles are small but doubles are gracefully furnished. The balconies have superb views of the cathedral.
All rooms at the Sassi Hotel are en suite and some have private balconies. Buffet breakfast includes fresh fruit and local products.
This award-winning hotel is in Matera's historical centre, just a few steps from the town's most famous attractions. Transfers are available to local airports and stations. Guests can enjoy discounted rates at a nearby partner car park.
