We stay 1 night in Trapani and had a pleasant stay at the hotel which offers comfortable King size bed, large room with many cupboards and its location is perfect next to the main shopping and dinning streets and close to the sea. Some comments about wifi access which was really bad, many times disconnected. And no view from the... More

Set on the waterfront in old historic building, quiet but centrally located. Incredibly beautiful views from tranquile seafront terrace. Serves breakfast there, also a bar for evening. Nicely decorated, cozy rooms. Rain-drop shower. Fast WiFi in room. Very friendly service (staff helped book a table on short notice for dinner on a new year's eve at a nice place). Overall... More

This hotel is a gem. The rooms are great, the service is stellar, and the location is perfect, right in the old town with a stroll out the front door to either the waterfront or, in the other direction, to the great restaurants and stores of the pedestrian zone of the old town. The hotel incorporates its ancient history with... More

Some great rooms - we had the luxury of having two rooms, so enjoyed them both - very individualistic designs and great atmosphere. The hotel has a lot of history and the owners can tell you about it if you ask. Meter parking nearby. Small gym is OK

We thoroughly enjoyed out two night stay at La Gancia in October. The hotel has an excellent location adjacent to the old fish market, and the rooftop terrace, which doubles as the breakfast room, provides a dazzling view of the sea. Rooms are spacious and clean, and feature updated washrooms. A few steps out the door and you are in... More

We stayed two nights. The hotel is pretty and well - located in the centre of Trapani at the seafront. The staff is very attentive. Only negative aspect: we were given a room next to the lift and it was extremely noisy. You also hear your neighbors. We would not return. Not worth the price.

. We stayed at the Residence La Gancia for four nights in September. As other reviewers have noted, this is not a hotel but a series of apartments. Our apartment was not elegant - in addition to the queen sized bed, it had bunkbeds and plastic chairs and tables - but it was eminently practical. We loved the de-humidifier in... More

They are excellent!!!!! Everything from staff to food and interior is on the high level, and the sea view from the terrace on the roof is simply magnificent. We highly recommend to all! you will not regret!

We ended our week in Sicily with two nights in Trapani and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Gancia, which has a great position overlooking the sea but is right in the heart of the bustling retail, dining and port areas. We opted for a roof top room (’Junior Suite’) with terrace and were very pleased our choice. The terrace,... More

We spent four nights in La Gancia mid September and thoroughly enjoyed it! As most people have stated, the hotel is really difficult to find, even with the directions given by the hotel, which were not accurate! Parking is also a problem - we found it easier to park in the "free" car park which was about a 15 minute... More
