Stayed two nights in this central location, great rooms overlooking the sea. Beautiful lounge, great breakfasts. Rooms were spacious, showers were hot, towels were soft and fluffy. Trapani is a beautiful seaside town with lots of shops and restaurants. Don't miss it on a trip to Sicily.

We only spent a single night at residence la gancia in March 2017. The hotel is conveniently located in the city center, directly on the seafront. Public parking was closeby and free on sundays. Our room was huge and even equipped with a kitchenette. The room as well as the entire hotel was very nicely renovated with special care for...

You can't judge a book by its cover, and you can't judge a hotel by its glitter. This hotel seems to have it all--a beautiful location by the sea, a rooftop breakfast area, a well-stocked bar with evening snacks, and a room with all the amenities. However, on our recent 2-night stay during a windy period (which wouldn't seem to...

Understanding for the exceptional situations. On the dates in which the customer has stayed in our apartment Trapani has experienced an exceptional situation because of the bad weather conditions with wind gusts of over 48 knots !!! The whole city because of bad weather has experienced unpleasant moments. The bad weather has caused a lot of damage in the city...

Great location, across from sea. We had a room that overlooked a quiet courtyard type of spot, so there was no noise. Comfy bed, very, very spacious, well - decorated, very clean room and bathroom w/good shower. Neat, tiled ceiling. Great breakfasts. Able to walk all around "historic city center", just steps from hotel. Neat city with lovely baroque churches...

We had a very quiet little apartment on the top (4th) floor of this beautifully restored residence - part of an old monastery. We had two big terraces overlooking the sea. A plentiful very fresh breakfast is served on the same floor, also with a terrace. The staff couldn't have been nicer and apartment was cleaned daily. La Residence is...

Nice room (306). Firm bed. Good A/C. Great view. Good location. Nice breakfast. There's even a small, very basic gym. Hopefully they've fixed the treadmill since it stopped working after 10 minutes. The hotel provides bottled water to drink and brush your teeth with due to high mineral content in the tap water.

Stayed at their Junior Suite with four ppl. Excellent sea front view. All staff are helpful and genuinely friendly. Perfect location, most key spots/shops/restaurants are within walking distance. Breakfast at rooftop has amazing view.

For a base camp in this part of Sicily, we wish we would have added a night (close to Erice and other monuments). We got a restaurant rec from the front desk and it was one of our best meals on our two week trek. Beautiful hotel with modern architectural detail and significance. We added breakfast for a very minimal...

We chose the La Gancia for it location more than anything else and we were not disappointed. Just in front of the fish market, facing the sea, the hotel offers a superb common terrace where you can enjoy a drink or your breakfast in an unique atmosphere (the sunset was amazing). The room by itself was really large, good and...
