Pro: very large room with balcony, large bathroom. Very nice restaurant, very good food, very nice service. Staff at the restaurant very professional. Cons: Also close to the town, I could not say that it has a good location, the hotel been located near the main road, consequently noisy. Also very poor insulation between rooms: I could hear the noise... More

Just outside the main town this hotel is very convenient for walking to and around Noto. It was nicely appointed and the room and bathroom were clean. Views from the hotel were not very inspiring but it is in land so no sea view possible! Would definitely recommend if you are in the area.

Good hotel just outside the gates to Noto, with plenty of car parking available. Very clean, big rooms and big balconies. Historical centre is 12 to 15 minutes walk, on pretty flat terrain. Breakfast was in the form of a very good buffet, with all the usual trimmings, and better than what is offered in many similar facilities. We did... More

We were pleasantly surprised with what the Grand Hotel Sofia has to offer. Just 5 minutes drive from Noto centre and 10minutes to the sea, this hotel has large modern rooms, and spacious bathrooms with a fantastic shower! Large balcony in each room. Lots of parking space. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool and sun deck were... More

We chose the hotel after we came across it during our internet search. The hotel proved to be an excellent choice as it provided the right setting for our family reunion. Rooms are very specious with a good sized shower. The breakfast is very varied and the pool and surrounding grounds beautifully landscaped. The hotel is located a stone throw... More

Excellent clean hotel. Staff very helpful. Hotel is situated just outside Noto easy to find and very central. Will definitely visit again. Noto is a lovely city to visit with all the historical places.

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
