We stayed at La gancia for 6 nights over the new year. The staff at this hotel are excellent - they cannot do enough for guests. It is spotless clean and very tastefully furnished and refurbished. The only down fall was the noise. the hotel is located at a Piazza and had we known that there would be a market on here until midnight each night during our stay we would have stayed else where. There was loud music played at full blast for 4 hours min each night. We could not sleep...this wasn't La Gancia's fault - the marketeers had received permission from the council...:) The staff assisted when they could. The location is otherwise excellent in the old town - we were in room 104 with a slight sea view and a view out to the piazza. The cleaning service is daily and is excellent. we did not eat at the hotel however there are numerous restaurants around the area quite cheaply priced. Overall La gancia is probably the best place to stay in trapani just now while the music is blaring from the markets at Piazza mercato del pesce. just up the street on the right is a great little restaurant with fab pizza called Amici Mei. Erice is stunning and well worth a visit. Things dont come to life until about 7.30pm.
