1.45km from Panificio Fratelli De PaloHaving decided at the last minute a short weekend in Matera, we chose this structure, for the good combination of rates (85 euros per night, double room) and centrality. In fact, having traveled without car (fast train to the "Ferrandina" station, 25 kms far away from Matera, + shuttle bus), it was essential for us the walking distance to/from each location in the city. In fact, the apartments are less than 100 mts from the "Matera Centrale" railway station (where also the suburban buses stop) and 200 mts from Piazza Vittorio Veneto, the hub of the old city, already overlooking the "Sassi". Obviously, since this isn't a hotel and therefore there isn't a constant attending by the staff, you must accurately agree your arrival time. The rooms - of course we speak of ours - are impeccable, modernly furnished and very pleasant, as are the bathrooms. The wi-fi is free and well functioning. The building appears to be built around the 1960s, so it isn't properly soundproofed. We realized that, because the noise coming from a private home bordering our room was clearly perceived. Nothing dramatic anyway. As often happens in Italy, the breakfast - included in the rate - consisted of a coupon usable at a nearby bar, which provided us a hot drink and a - very tasty - brioche. The guest accustomed to a more substantial breakfast must therefore integrate it. Overall, we highly recommend this accomodation, even more so to no drivers.
