Stayed here first 3 nights of tour. Large room with terrace. Staff attentive, food good. Pity the table napkins at dinner were always damp! Lift to dining room didn't seem to work at night. Easy walk into town from here. Noto is an interesting town and a good start to the tour.

Efficient, friendly and capable. This isn't the time of year to be visiting Sicily, but the hotel made it comfortable for us. The food is wholesome if you can find your way to the dining room, which seemed somewhat remote form the rooms. The lifts are available and adequate so one shouldn't get lost. A good bar, with a very... More

This is a hotel that lives up to it's four star rating. We have had a few meals at Sofia and the meals and service were up to standard, the front desk staff are helpful and good to deal with. We have walked up to the old town of Noto several times, an easy walk. A hotel on Malta I... More

This hotel was perfect for us while visiting southeast Sicily. It's located outside Noto central and conviently off the main highway where we were able to easily reach Modico and Ragusa. The train station is a 5 minute walk which makes it convenient to visit Sircusa. It's about a 15 min leisurely walk into Noto where you'll fine many good... More

The Grand Hotel Sofia was the first hotel we stayed at on our group tour and after a long time travelling it was a perfect place to lay our heads. Check in was done smoothly and our dinner that night was very welcome. Our room was quite large, as was the balcony, with a comfortable bed and good air conditioning.... More

made so welcome. Lovely big room, friendly helpful staff, nothing too much trouble. Excellent restaurant with amazing food at sensible prices, good value for money. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel. A few minutes drive/walk from the centre of Noto and a beautiful beach a short drive away.

Good hotel with a lovely swimming pool. Great rooms and beautifully decorated and built. Poor restaurant not sure what it's trying to be. Fine dining set up and menu yet bright strip lights and only one waitress. No atmosphere. Poorly located. Out of town and nothing near to access - food, supermarket etc

Just stayed one night on way from ferry to Sicily from Malta. Newly and nicely renovated 4-star hotel just blocks from the lovely 18th-century late-baroque village with one main pedestrian street. Hotel staff helpful and friendly, nice large rooms. Stay was in heat of summer; hotel had adequate air-conditioning in rooms and public areas. Excellent breakfast buffet. Large rooms, well-furnished.... More

We stayed here the night of 31st May 2015 and had a terrible night. At 11pm a group of schoolchildren arrived and occupied most of our floor. From then on there was no longer any quiet. The kids ran around, shouted, screamed, banged doors. It was impossible to sleep. We contacted reception, who told us that they couldn't give us... More

I couldn't fault this hotel. We arrived without reservation and were welcomed very professionally. The price was an outstanding €69 for a very modern, spacious and well equipped room with a small balcony overlooking the pool (which I would have tried if it had been warmer than 17 degrees!) Good breakfast. Only 800 meters to the old town.
