Phone the hotel to get directions as your sat nav may take you to completely the wrong place. But when you arrive it is fabulous. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We were upgraded to a junior suite at check-in. The hotel is steeped in history but has been stylishly renovated. The view from our terrace was beautiful. Breakfast is fantastic. The hotel is centrally located. We booked a guide at reception and would recommend that. We could not fault anything.
We stayed for three nights at the Locanda di San Martino, and loved every minute of it. The hotel was easy to find, even though it is located in the old Sassi. After we checked in we drove the rental car back down the road and around the corner to a free car park, where it sat for the duration.
The Hotel is in a great location, all of the Sassi is within walking (and climbing stairs distance). Our room was private, spacious, clean with good air con. after you find the stairs you wont even bother with the hotel lift.
For two days we explored the Sassi, we had a 2 hour English speaking tour guide with was a great orientation to the Sassi, and after that we just explored on our own. Getting lost in the alleyways is part of the experience.
Each afternoon we would visit the Thermal pool that is part of the hotel. The ten euro charge is well worth the experience of the Saunas, spa, and the beautiful blue underground thermal pool. what an experience !
The staff at reception are friendly, the breakfast is good (we even had a piano player each morning).
We were 100% glad we chose this hotel.
We absolutely loved our cave-room at Sextantio Le Grotte Della Civita. The room was beautifully prepared for our arrival, with candles lit and fresh fruit and water waiting. We found the room warm, inviting and wonderfully comfortable - and interesting, too, given the rich history of Matera and the sassi. The staff were kind and helpful at every turn. I hope to have a chance to come back.

This is the second time I have had the pleasure of staying at this lovely place. I absolutely can say that hands down it is the best place I have ever stayed. Not only the accommodating staff but also the pure beauty of this magnificent hotel. We stayed in a suite and it was spacious, extremely clean, and overall just fantastic. We did encounter one issue, the wifi in our room wouldn't work because the signal wasn't strong enough. Within 5 minutes of letting the front desk know about this issue, a man with a router for our room was knocking on our door. NOW THAT'S SERVICE! Perfect location, perfect customer service, just plain PERFECTION.

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel and had a very pleasent stay. Loved Matera! The room was spacious and comfortable and the buffet breakfast had a good selection. There was ample room for parking right on the premises.The hotel is located about 2 kilometers out of town-not convenient if you don't have a car. I think there is a nearby bus stop but not sure how often it runs.
More like a business hotel, modern and comfortable. Tugging a suitcase around southern Italy for two weeks with a one night stay at Matera . . . I was more interested in convenience and comfort than staying in a historic hotel for this part of trip. Met my needs exactly, friendly staff and several restaurants nearby.
