In the heart of the ancient Italian city of Matera, there is an unusual hotel that combines modern comfort with the unique atmosphere of antiquity. The city itself has long been known to tourists for its many intricate caves and old stone buildings, and the Basiliani design hotel fully embraces the spirit of the area. Hotels and motels in any other city can not be compared with this unusual structure, because part of it is literally carved into the rock.

The designer left the inner cave vaults almost unchanged, which does not allow visitors to forget what an ancient place they are in. At the same time, the ancient masonry perfectly coexists with modern plumbing and plastic windows. The furniture in the rooms is chosen so as not to distract attention from the grandeur of antiquity surrounding the residents - it is very simple and modest, but at the same time comfortable and functional.
