A real palacePosted Apr 7, 2015
Pros: Location. Building.
Location: Next to the cathedral on top of the hill. Walking distance to all the sights.
Such is the layout of the hotel, it can seem like you are the only one staying there. Right on top of the hill next to the cathedral, the hotel is well placed for a walk into town, and if you have the legs, a walk down the steps to the Sassi. The rooms were excellent, and the walk to breakfast was like being in a stately home. Breakfast excellent too.

Traumhafter Palazzo in einer umwerfenden StadtPosted Feb 8, 2015 on Hotels
Sehr schönes Hotel in einem tollen Palazzo mitten im Zentrum von Matera. Super Service, auch wir haben ein Upgrade auf ein Zimmer mit tollem Ausblick auf die Schluchtenstadt erhalten. Matera war für uns sicher die interessanteste Stadt auf unserer Rundreise und der Palazzo Viceconte ist der ideale Ausgangspunkt. Einzig die Anfahrt ist schwierig, wir wurden aber von einem Vespa-Fahrer hingelotst, der scheinbar auch vom Hotel geschickt wurde.

Fantastic place (but you have to find it!)Posted Dec 17, 2014 on Hotels
Great place but difficult to find (see note at bottom if you want to avoid the 60 minutes it took me to find the place after arriving in the new town). One of the most beautiful hotels I have stayed at. Restored Palazzo next to the hill top Duomo in the Sassi with fantastic views over the old city and the canyons. Rooms were spacious, very tastefully decorated in keeping with the beauty of the building, and also up to date with thoughtful touches such as heated floors. Only minor ding with the hotel was breakfast, with no hot service, and where the service was a bit indifferent. But it was in a beautiful setting which helped compensate. To get to this fantastic location, you have to find the hotel. There is no signage anywhere except in front of the hotel. The ONLY way to get the hotel by car is to get to the piazza in front of the Sassi Duomo, and follow a narrow stone road 50 meters or so off the piazza, wherer the hotel will be on the left (Parking 20 Euro per day). GOOGLE MAPS DIRECTIONS ARE WRONG (as of December 2014)--you will not get to the hotel with its directions (and even if you correct for the fact it has you go the wrong way down a one way street it will leave you at the bottom of a hill maybe 200 steps and several turns below the hotel). Also beware digital and paper maps often don't distinguish clearly between pedestrian walkways with stairs from streets that can take cars.

Score of 5+++++Posted Nov 3, 2014 on Hotels
We fell in love with the Palazzo Viceconte. The service & location were outstanding and our Junior Suite was spacious and elegant. The bathroom was very large and we even had a walk in closet. The view from our room was breathtaking of the Sassi and though we had a litle difficulty navigating to some of the restaurants suggested, we managed to do so and our dinners were lovely! We had only booked our room for two nights but asked to stay longer because we fell in love with the area and the Palazzo but unfortunately they were sold out. My husband had been unwell for a few days before arriving in Matera and after another day there, I asked the front desk to help make arrangements to see a local doctor. Within the hour, Mrs. Viceconte herself brought a doctor to our room. Since the doctor spoke no English and we spoke no Italian, she translated and soon we were on our way to the pharmacy with a prescription. When we checked out the next day, everyone inquired after my husband's health. They were like family after only a few days! We have been traveling for over five weeks now, mostly to new areas of Italy that we had not been - Matera was one of our absolute favorites and the Palazo Viceconte helped make it so!!
