Matera, Italy is a small town of passion and culture, and at the highest point of the town, in Duomo’s Square, lies the Palazzo Gattini Luxury Hotel. Combining modernity with history and ancient embellishments, the luxury hotel has created the perfect getaway for those looking for adventure and stories. Palazzo Gattini has, to date, won three Luxury Lifestyle Awards, claiming the award for Best Luxury Boutique Hotel in Italy, 2022.
When renewing this one-of-a-kind hotel, architect Mr. Ettore Mocchetti wanted to turn Palazzo Gattini into a historic place of value, giving it new life, sophistication, and refinement. The hotel is open to locals as well as travellers looking for a taste of the old days. The hotel echoes the rupestrian churches in the area: the mazzaro, a local stone used for indoor designs, is used throughout the hotel to take guests straight back to the ancient streets of Matera. Bright colored curtains, with contrasting limestone gives guests an idea of the excessive life that the Gattini family lived.
The hotel is decorated with gentle warm lighting, inviting guests to slow down and enjoy their environment. The furnishings are the work of local craftsmen, who helped to enrich and embellish the palace. Each room is spacious and extravagant, mixing modern amenities with classic design and bespoke furniture – the old and the new living completely in harmony. A wide staircase engulfs a glass elevator, while the lower floor holds the space of the Gattini spa, ‘Hamamm’ that is reminiscent of Roman baths. Here guests can enjoy massages, and various wellness surrounded by cisterns and caves carved into the stone. Decorations are always understated and tasteful: a series of small sculptures are displayed in niches along one wall, a clever nod to the decorative ‘language’ of the cathedral. Here is a hotel that oozes sophistication and perfectly complements its world-renowned setting.
Only the highest standard of services are offered to esteemed guests. Upon request, guests can enjoy the valet parking service; nightly turndown service; room service; laundry; a babysitter; a transfer service from and to the airport; and guided tours in guests’ preferred language. All of the hotel’s services and activities can be customized to suit individual guests’ needs.
In the morning, a rich breakfast buffet awaits guests. The Duomo Cafè is a secret and sophisticated place where guests are welcomed at any time of the day, and the Le Bubbole restaurant introduces guests to local cuisine. The hotel is also available for special events.
“Make sure that you take a chance to relax on the roof terrace and indulge in the sublime views of the Sassi (stones). It’s something you’ll never forget!” says Giacinto Marchionna, Director of Sales & Marketing.
Palazzo Gattini has hosted noteworthy events recently. The Ferrari event was held at the hotel on the 22nd of April of 2022, as well as the Gucci event on the 16th of May. The TIMES UK magazine event will also be held at the hotel on the 28th to the 30th of June, proving that Palazzo Gattini certainly is a favorite for prestigious events, and is continuously growing in popularity amongst those looking for a lavish, luxurious setting.
