I stayed at the Residence La Gancia for 2 nights as part of a Rick Steves tour. I was in room 103, one floor up from reception. The room was huge, with a nice, comfortable bed, storage space, breakfast table & 4 chairs, sofa bed, large bathroom and large shower. The room was tastefully decorated, very quiet and was reasonably... More

We stayed here for two nights on a Rick Steves tour. The quality of the rooms and the breakfast is very high. The recent renovation is very stylish and comfortable. One extra is the lovely top-floor terrace for breakfast or drinks.

Stayed over Easter'15 to see and photograph the famous processions. Perfect location, room big and comfortable with great big bathroom. Breakfast/ Bar area on the roof nicely done. Good Italian/Sicillian breakfast on offer. All staff friendly and professional. All in all a great experience and I recommend this hotel without any ifs or buts.

As the review title says, the location is most ideal. Very nice rooms with a cozy sitting area. Rooftop bar and restaurant with gorgeous views of the city coastline. Staff are friendly and customer service motivated.

We booked the junior suite and it was the most amazing experience! More of a spacious small flat with a kitchenette than a room, clean and comfortable with a terrace to die for! The view takes your breath away, it is huge with an extra shower, lounge chairs so that you would never leave. But you must: to visit a... More

Unfortunately we arrived in Trapani in a gale storm but when we blew through the entrance we were welcomed with a smile. The room we had was a Seaview suite that had a spectacular view of the sea and was very spacious with a kitchenette. The bathroom was very tastefully designed and girls note - great hairdryer. The top floor... More

We stayed 2 nights at the delightful La Gancia and loved this hotel. Although a little tricky to find at first, it is in a perfect location along the waterfront and close to the main promenade but tucked back from the busy street. There were good parking options close by and many restaurants within easy walking. The waterfront is great... More

Located at the edge of Trapani's old town, la Gancia is very modern,rooms quite large and sound proof. Many restaurants close by. Drawbacks include somewhat capricious Wifi and rather inconvenient metered parking nearby.
