New, modern and clean, large rooms, nice pool, decent buffet breakfast. It's 4 star by Italian standard, in a few years' time it would be run down. Parking if free in front but we didn't have much trouble parking in Noto. It's further down the street but it's only 10 minute walk from the old town. It does not have... More

A modern hotel within walking distance of the centre of Noto, and well located for touring the area. Dinner and breakfast were provided. Has a pool and good car-park. Rooms are clean with views (not of the town centre). The town centre is a walk of about 10 minutes ‘up-hill’ There is also a super-market close by.

As a single traveller I got a suite of rooms, with a Jacuzzi and 2 balconies! The hotel was clean and breakfasts very nice. I was travelling with a Saga group and the evening dinners left a lot to be desired, set meals, very much Anglicized, and not what the cuisine I expected in Italy. The hotel was within easy... More

Big modern hotel in walking distance to the historical town center of Noto. Rooms are modern, clean and roomy, coming with a nice balcony. A proper full breakfast is served. The hotel has many rooms, also being used by groups of travellers. There was no disturbing noise. Free parking is available on site.

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 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
