The hotel itself is nice, but could be anywhere in the world: there is nothing 'Italian' in it.
Positives: spacious, clean, and nice rooms. Nice staff at the reception.
Negatives: I would mention the restaurnt here. The food was quite featureless: no spices (not so much taste), no local specialities. The waiters could be characterised somewhere between neutral and unfriendly. There was a scent of snobbery in their attitude (however they have no reason for it: it is a medium class restaurant).
Nevertheless, the hotel can be a good choice if you would like to spend some time in Noto.
