Second Stay as Good as First
Posted Jul 14, 2010
On our second stay at the Palace Hotel Matera we found the same efficient, friendly service and excellent accomodations as during our first. The hotel is modern, utterly clean, well-functiioning, and comfortable. (Note that you will not be able to set the air conditioning lower than 24.5 degree Centigrade, but that is comfortable enough if you keep the fan blowing.) The complimentary breakfast in the morning has abundant choice and excellent local products. The hotel is also easy to find, as it is prominent on the landscape and of very easy access to and from all roads. All in all, an excellent choice and a great deal for the price. (The only minor inconvenience was that this time we were there during the great big annual feast of early July when crowds pour into the city and the hotel posted notes saying it could not guarantee our finding a parking space at night, even in its own parking areas, which were overrun by out-of-towners. The hotel did accommodate our car in the end but we thought they should have been more reassuring on this front.).
