Nice hotel on edge of Noto. Ideal for short walk to old Town and enough parking space if U have rant-a-car. Rooms were big, with nice, big balcony. But there was a problem with balcony doors. We couldn't lock them in any way. So, the hotel caretaker did make fast solution. Well, we still didn't feel quite relaxed. Staff was... More

Great experience! Excellent breakfast (brioches, fresh fruits, different types of juice and yogurt), very nice pool, big bedroom and bathroom. We only had some problems with wifi connection in the bedroom.

Stayed three nights on a Saga tour, it is only a short walk from the centre of this beautiful town, as it is built on the side of a hill the design is unconventional with he entrance on the second floor and at first it is a bit difficult to find your way about. The bedrooms are spacious but sparcely... More

Hotel is in good location if you don't want to drive through Noto. Large hotel, bit confusing to find your way around, but rooms are large. Only I would not recommend dinner there. Staff works hard, but they cater for large amount of people. We were there at flower festival time. Dinner was poor quality and not cheaper then anywhere... More

We stayed one night at this hotel & found it very nice. The rooms are clean & large but felt a bit empty. The dinner at the hotel was pretty good & fresh. Breakfast was not good. No fresh anything. Just dry breads & yogurt. This hotel is not very fancy but was a nice place for one night. Very... More

We spent one night here as part of a one week auto-tour of Sicily. The hotel was selected for us by our French tour operator, FRAM, through their Italian intermediary, Aeroviaggi. It was easy for my sat nav to find, conveniently located just outside the centre of Noto, a beautiful Baroque town with lots of character and a wonderful holiday... More

Modern, somewhat unattractive building just at the entrance of town - but don't be fooled by the outside. The hotel is very comfortable and has lots of room space, wifi, common areas and good breakfast. The service is also very good, personnel is helpful and polite. It's the only hotel of this type available in Noto. The historical town is... More

We would not have normally chosen such a high end hotel but the price was very good at this time in the year. Breakfast was superb and so were suppers. It's only a short walk to the centre of town or the train station, which we took to Siracusa. There is no ticket office or machine for the trains, buy... More
