Which photo is more noisy?

The simulated photos below are Abe R Ration's photos from another thread:

Or if you prefer simple simulation with just photon shot noise and no distracting colors. The "Lena" on the left was captured with pixels 16 times smaller than the one capures on the right. Both captured with the same exposure parameters and the sensor size was the same.

So, here's the question. Which photo, if either, is more noisy?

POLL
The photo on the left is more noisy.

The photo on the right is more noisy.

The photos have the same noise (the photo on the right is simply more blurry / the photos have the same quantity of noise but different qualities of noise / the photos are equally noisy but the left photo shows higher frequencies of noise that are lost in the blur of larger pixels in the photo at the right).

Other (please explain if choosing this option).
