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

We stayed at this hotel as part of a package. The staff were friendly and the room was large and clean. The Breakfast buffet was pretty good but the set evening dinners were not adequate. The hotel is perfectly situated for a short walk into Noto Town centre or ideal for making a quick getaway into the countryside.

Although not easy to find, this hotel was first rate. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and the internet service worked well. The hotel was about a 15 minute walk to the main tourist area. Parking was adequate and the breakfast was very good. Our only complaint was that the address provided was worthless to our... More

As stated on other reviews,this hotel lacks character,is outdated and does not seem to have any sense of direction when it comes to interior decoration.The reception area is far to bright.The room we occupied was clean and spacious.Bar area very unappealing.Breakfast was good with plenty of choice and the young staff were very pleasant and helpful.

This was the first stop on the Saga Seriously Sicily tour and being on the flight from Gatwick we arrived well into the evening but a pleasant, enjoyable meal was provided. Our room was spacious with a large balcony but did overlook a busy main road into Noto so there was quite a lot of traffic noise. However by the... More

This hotel is fine if you have a car! Not close to the old part of town. It is a bit dated. The TV was not working and it does not have a friendly atmosphere except for a friendly lady who served us breakfast! It is a big hotel with a pool.

I read the previous reviews and I was a little scared. But experience with this hotel was good. We arrived late in the evening, the staff were very helpful and friendly. We got quiet, spacious room, which was large comfortable bed and well equipped and clean bathroom. Breakfast was good and plentiful, the staff still complement the meal. The hotel... More
