Casino Ridola is a lovely house that has been done up beautifully to a high standard. It's in a very good location about 700m from the entrance to the old town. Also, on the plus side, it has it's own gated car park - so if you are driving it is a very good location.

The staff were helpful, particularly the first lady we met on check in. Breakfast is basic, but fine. The bed was comfy.

However, we did have a number of small issues. First, our room (Room 105) is probably the best room in the house with a huge balcony. I noticed on check in that it was quite hot in the room and there was no air conditioner. The lady said that our room had under floor cooling (the only room that depends on this entirely). It transpired it was wasn't working. Fortunately, it was cool enough over night that we could have the door open with the blinds closed - just risking mosquito bites. So that's what we did for the next 3 nights. They tell us that all the other rooms have traditional blow air conditioners.

Second, the toilet seat was broken by the previous occupants. Not the Hotel's fault, but we had to go without until our third day when it was replaced.

Third, they put some scent in the room - attached under the sink. We really disliked the sickly chemical smell. We got them to remove it, but it took till our third day for the smell to disappear. The smell was in the other rooms we looked at too (my mother in law moved rooms).

Fourth, on one evening the live in owner's teenage son (we think) had some sort of party. It was noisy and went on till 11pm. It actually wasn't a problem for us, but would have been had we had an early start the next day.

In total we saw 4 of the approx 10 rooms. Our view was that the ground floor rooms are ok but a bit dingy. The first floor rooms were very nice. And the second floor room was a bit in the eves of the house. So, go for a first floor room if you can get it.

Matera is a really interesting place to visit. It was our favourite place in Puglia of all those we visited (even though it's not actually in Puglia!).

Despite its small faults, I'd say Casino Ridola is a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Get a first floor room if you can.

Hotel Casino Ridola is just at the entrance to Matera,(less than 1 KM to the historical Matera).
They have private parking at hotel (what is a must if you came to Asissi by car) If you want to walk to the city center, it is not far, an easy walk of cca 15min.
The staff is very kind and helpful. The pool area is nice and really welcome in summer.
Rooms are nice and you get everything you need. Our room was on first floor with the balcony.
Breakfast is good, typical Italian with mainly croissants and cakes, juice from machine and very good cappuccino.

Room Tip: room on first floor with the balcony

Stayed for 2 nights - perfect if you have a car.
Downside is the walk into the centre - it's not pretty and the walk back is uphill.
Helpful and friendly reception team.
A bit expensive for the standard - it has a small swimming pool which I guess would be welcome during the summer months.

Perfect start to our trip. We were in Italy for a biking trip and this was the first city we biked out of. Hotel is a short 10 minute walk to historic district - it was spacious and very clean. Breakfast was great and cappuccino excellent! Pool area and grounds are gorgeous! We would definitely stay there again. Sassi di Matera is a must to see!! Loved Puglia ❤️️
