This hotel is fantastic, without a doubt would stay there again. Location is obviously great, at Sasso Barisano, very easy to arrive, the property is super nice, the design of the room is awesome, the staff is really really nice and the breakfast delicious. A short walking distance there are restaurants, which all of them are incredible. Amazing experience staying at Thymus, highly recommendable.

Cave room was amazing. All features you would want. One of the best I’ve stayed in and I’ve stayed in literally thousands. Manuela who was on the front desk organized paid parking off-site, dinner and a tour, and mapped out a walk. Very attentive. Perfect English too.

Our stay at the Thymus Residence nei Sassi was a wonderful, unique experience that we will always remember. This conversion of a Sassi cave into a hotel room is design at its best. It was totally outfitted with every modern amenity, yet you felt enveloped in the past. The view out the door was fantastic! We loved the lication, the staff, and the breakfast! Totally recommend for a one-of-a-kind experience!

True Gem in Matera!
Thymus is a true gem! Annalisa and Imperia have been the most gracious hosts, and we were sad to leave. Their breakfast was plentiful and delicious, and they gifted us their special bread from Matera when we checked out. The room itself is unbelievable, built into the sassi and very spacious. Thank you Thymus for the memorable experience!

The room is nearly 500 st ft.very spacious, decorated with very rustic looking furniture tastefully arranged. I liked it and will come back again. It seems claustrofobic at initial look but they have a system of flowing air through a dehumidifier.

Luxury cave stay
This is an experience worth trying. The room is located in a great area, close to all the sites, dining, and bars. The breakfast was more than expected. It was truly a great experience. Cannot recommend this enough.
