We found this location by chance and what a good find we had. We stayed at this B & B for three nights for just under 200. euro; it included a lovely breakfast which would keep you going for a while. Vincenzo, our host, was gracious and gave us good advice on where to eat. The room was clean and very cosmopolitan. The bathroom was spacious and the accommodations clean. The B & B is located in a condominium near the heart of the city and at the base of Parco Giovanni Paolo II. The accommodations are not large and not recommended if you are the type to wish to lounge at your accommodations but rather to be independent and ready to explore the surrounding area. Vincenzo is fluent in English and very engaging in conversation. Vincenzo is from Matera and is very happy and willing to share his city with you.
The location is excellent , just around the corner there is a lovely plaza full of bars and restaurants and stunning views of the Sassi .From the moment we arrived Vicenzo the owner made us feel so welcome and at home .The whole place is spotless and so bright and cosy.The bedrooms are spacious and so comfortable and have all you could want .Our room had a small balcony with a lovely windowbox full of flowers and a view of the park .The breakfast room was charming and we had a great spread for breakfast juice, coffee ,tea .eggs ham cheese bread and homemade cakes by his mother ,delish . Vicenzo also told us to help our selfs to refreshments anytime during the day if we wanted .I left a pair of my recently bought trousers when we left and he kindly posted them to me .If you come to Matera stay here you wont regret it ,5 star treatment and the cheapest B&B we have ever stayed in .
Great central location a few minutes from the sassi & easily reached on foot from the train/bus station. The room is large, clean & comfortable (and air-conditioned), the price is very reasonable and the owner is fantastic, provides a great breakfast, perfect coffee and endless recommendations about what to see & places to eat. The service is fantastic and I highly recommend a stay when visiting Matera.
