“A great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

My family spent three nights at La Gancia. The room and bathroom were spacious with free wifi that worked well. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was on the roof where the view of the sea was amazing. We thought the breakfast well worth the cost. The staff was very friendly and made our stay even more pleasurable. We would definitely recommend staying here, and would not hesitate to stay at La Gancia again.

Great location in pedestrian area of Trapani. Very clean and tremendously kind and helpful front desk and housekeeping. Rooftop bar in the evening with snacks and in the morning a delightful breakfast buffet. Spacious rooms and modern bathrooms. Trapani is worth at least a couple of days and to the best of my knowledge there is nowhere better in Trapani to stay.

Room Tip: Try to get a view of the ocean. Ours mostly looked over the Pescheria, but we were grateful to fina...

Well-placed location with direct access to walk streets, shops and restaurants. Very modern and roomy suite with small fridge, microwave and coffee-maker. The roof top lounge offers an excellent view overlooking Piazza Mercato del Pesce and the sea. The lounge is a great place to relax in the evening and enjoy a glass of wine accompanied by a wide variety of olives, cheeses, etc. No view from our room but the rooftop deck made up for it! A generous breakfast is also served on the bright and airy rooftop deck (10 euro).

Stayed her unexpectedly for 2 nights. The accommodation was great with very helpful staff. We found it a very good base to explore the area which is very easily accessible. We enjoyed the guidance and recommendation of the staff. The rooms are big and spacious. There is a superb breakfast served on the roof top. Excellent

The Residence La Gancia must be a great place. The other TA reviews are consistent and mostly excellent so I have to feel that my review must be due to the room we were given. It was a busy weekend and we were just passing through for one night so we given a triple room in a very dark corner of the hotel with no view whatsoever. The room was generally clean but it was disconcerting that a posted sign said that the water was not potable in the hotel. We later found out that this was true in all of Trapani! Amazing in the 21st Century in Italy. Nonetheless, the area that the Residence Gancia is located in is excellent with a fabulous Patisseria below and several good restaurants nearby. The main Corso is nearby and one can shop or just stroll after dinner as many of the Trapanese do. Give it a try but ensure that your room has a view AND some daylight!

went to trapani for 2 nights. stayed in the beautiful hotel which is a renovated old building. The room was spacious with an additional space which had a mini kitchen hidden away. The bathroom was large, shower big enough for 2 people! The roof top bar was excellent, cocktails very well made and free appertisers were very nice. The breakfast had a good choice of jams, honeys and scilian pastries. The hotel is close to all the nightlife and to the shops during the day. The reception went out of their way to help me when i needed to find a chemist on a saturday afternoon (they are usually closed at this time). Would definately stay here again.

The best of the center of Trapani, at La Gancia, minutes to the cathedral, shopping, night life, and wonderful restaurants. Need a navigator to find it.
Right next to the sea wall and the old Fish Market.

Room Tip: Request a room with a view. Some rooms large enough to accomodate a 3rd person.
