TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 day ago

Matera is a magical place, and it’s clear why the Palazzo Gattini is a five star hotel. Not only is it so perfectly situated in the heart of the city (it really couldn’t be better located) but from the moment you step into the hotel you feel you’re somewhere special. Design-wise, this is a slick venue and you’re made to feel special by the reception team who so warmly welcome you and escort you to your room. Our room was lovely, high ceilings, large comfortable bed, and lovely shower and bath. It was all so lovely, but for me, there are some aspects to this hotel that, given we’d paid a premium and we’re staying in a five star palace, one would expect better of: - As we were escorted to our room we were advised of the rooftop bar that would be open from 5pm where we could enjoy the stunning views overlooking the city. In our room was a menu of drinks options for the bar. And so, we arrived at 5pm for a drink to find no bar staff there. We returned at 7pm and still no one there. Why give us advice that was not accurate? - We utilised the Spa whilst staying. The instructions were very clear to arrive fifteen minutes before our treatments. We therefore arrived at 14:45 to find the spa completely shut. We left and returned at 14:50 and again at 15:00 and still all the lights were off. We returned again at 15:10 and the spa was just being opened up (25 minutes after the original instruction). - The Spa treatments were lovely, and the spa staff very friendly. I can’t say however that the treatments had any healing or therapeutic benefits. I came away from our couples massage with the same knots and muscle pains that I had hoped would be eradicated. I’d recommend the spa, but don’t go expecting expert therapy. - In our room we had a bath with a jacuzzi facility. However the jacuzzi facility did not work. If it did, the room would benefit from instructions. Whilst enjoying my bath I also noticed that under the rim of the top of bath there was a lot of mildew/mould and some hairs. This is where the design finish is bad and it wasn’t being cleaned properly. - Breakfast was only so so. I particularly didn’t like, and indeed take great offence to the fact that the waitresses (aside from showing us where everything was on arrival on the first day) made no effort to offer us coffees or hot drinks unless you went to them to ask. I also learned that some people were either offered or asked for cooked options (e.g eggs/omelettes etc). We were not offered this at anytime and I’d expect this service as standard. The points I raise here are to highlight that the hotel still has some way to go to justify the five star status (excluding its location, general design and friendliness of reception staff/concierge; because it totally deserves the status for these things).

We stayed for 5 nights and upgraded to the Junior suite which has its own terrace and plunge pool. Matera is all about the Sassi and the views from the terrace were spectacular. We were there for the Festa di Bruna and the staff were so helpful in allowing us into one of the other rooms to get a fantastic view of the festivities happening in the square. In fact the staff were always very helpful and full of advice. We did have a problem with the plunge pool for a couple of days but they deducted the upgrade for two days. Hotel location is perfect for walking the town and for exploring the Sassi. Breakfast is typically Italian with fresh fruits and pastries and eggs are available though probably best avoided.

I booked this hotel for several reasons - the location; an oasis to return to from a days touring; and it's website exuded luxury. I was not disappointed on any level (except maybe the scrambled eggs which I prefer a little softer). On arrival we were met by Theresa whose customer service was just fantastic - she is the true face of the hotel & why it gets the highest rating. We were very fortunate to receive an upgrade to a delightful room with a view over the square. The rooms are seriously large and hold every convenience required. Given the hotel is located adjacent to a busy important tourist site we slept like babies. We also made use of the spa with probably the best purpose built jacuzzi / indoor pool. The Hammam (steam room) was fine too. Breakfast was good - a decent selection of everything although spread across several small rooms - actually my only gripe is that I think breakfast should be served on the bar terrace but that's just a personal view. Location couldn't be better - 5 mins walk to anywhere important, restaurants etc. If you're driving the hotel will guide you in over the phone & then park your car offsite (although at 20 euros per night not cheap) this was a convenient & efficient service. I found the local restaurants underwhelming & we struggled to have a decent meal in Matera. But don't let that put you off - it's one of the worlds great places and shouldn't be more missed. So a great hotel in a great location but it's Theresa who made it really special.

Hotel is very good-- beautiful facilities, amazing location, impeccable service- no flaws to speak of. Location next to cathedral and food also very good. Only reason I did not rate with 5 stars is noise in the plaza/ during night. A bit disturbing.
