The hotel is unusual in design as mentioned in other reviews. However, it is a fabulous facility. It is primarily built as an event hotel but just staying as a hotel guest you are treated wonderfully. The entire staff of the hotel is quiet/soft sopken and extremely helpful to any need. Location is incomparable as you look out over to the hillside town of Picerno. No matter where you are in this hotel you look out at Picerno and that beautiful vista. The gardens are maintained beautifully. The entire hotel is custom built from handrails, walls of stone, floors of multicolored tiles, everything must have been done by craftsmen. Basilicata is not on the usual Italian tourist route but is an area of Italian that rivals Tuscany in visual landscape. It is certainly an area that hikers, campers, walkers and historians would enjoy. Can't imagine the area will remain undiscovered for long. It is certainly a welcome escape from the madness of Naples. Any visitor should be forewarned that the entire area just shuts down from about 1pm to 5pm but once the heat of the day subsides the entire population begins to bring each town alive. Matera and the Sassi area is a World Heritage site and should not be missed. The archeological museum in Melfi rivals that of the museum in Naples. In fact, I think it is better in its presentation and contents, which are the archeological finds of the Basilicata area.
