“5 day trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

We stayed at La Gancia for 5 nights last week
We had a lovely relaxing time , our room was lovely, our view behind the curtain was of a brick wall but the view from the top terrace more than made up for it.
There was a gym and a sun bathing terrace , no pool but 3 large showers for when the heat got unbearable
Breakfast was just what we liked , toast , cereal , fruit , pastries , cheese, ham , lovely fresh breads and freshly squeezed juices
We will certainly go back , thoroughly recommend it

Room Tip: Ask for a terrace view or a studio room

I stayed in Residence La Gancia with my husband, 4 year old daughter and my mother for one night. It had a large king size bed as well as a sofa bed which could accommodate all our family in one room.
The hotel room is very spacious, clean and modern and provided good quality of breakfast.
The staff was very friendly and helpful.
The hotel is conveniently located in the centre of Trapani and within walking distance from main shopping street and stores.
The only disappointment is limited internet access. While internet connection is free of charge, for some reason, our room did not have good reception.
Another inconvenience is that the hotel does not have its own parking place and we needed to find a public parking space in the street.

Great location in the old town, very friendly staff and large clean rooms. Breakfast is served on the upper levels of the hotel providing fantastic views of the sea. Breakfast itself offered a great selection and variety of high quality food.

Room Tip: Higher level facing the sea.

A beautiful hotel centered in the middle of the old part of the town which was a hive of activity. The breakfast room had a view over the whole area looking out over the sea. In the evening it was tranformed To a cocktail bar With hor d'oeuvre watching the sunset which was spectaculär. The staff from the reception area To the cleaners could not do enough for us. They Were so friendly and accomadating. Trapani is a picturesque town especially Around the hotel With many restaurants and bars. Food was delicious we ate Sword fish Tuna prepared in many ways and many other fish. There Were many places To visit Arice is a must. The Local bus takes you direct To cable car up the mountain To a lovely view and town. Marsala is also a town not To miss very pretty. Of course you have the novelty of taking the hover Craft To the Islands .

Very friendly staff, kind and helpful - everyone from the cleaner to the hotel manager did their best to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. Breakfast is wonderful and eaten in fromt of a view to die for! The same can be said about the cocktail bar in the evening. The sunset is seen best from the hotel bar! An extra plus for the free towels every day for the beach! This hotel just can´t be any better!

Room Tip: We were in the studio which was perfect

In the first instance stayed for 3 nights in a superior triple room. Delightful room, very roomy. The staff were delightful and went the extra mile to be as helpful as they could - and more. The terrace is delightful with amazing views. There was a lovely terrace for sunbathing too. We loved it so much we returned for another 2 nights at the end of our stay in Sicily. We had an even more roomier room, the Junior Suite. This hotel is exceptionally clean and in a quiet and great location with a lovely view of the sea. Would highly recommend

Room Tip: An excellent triple room no 303 and also room 206 which was a very spacious Junior suite overlooking...

This place is tip top! A converted wharf side dwelling tastefully renovated with style. The bathroom sink in particular was made from the most beautiful green stone! The roof top bar has wonderful views across the sea and serves a gorgeous glass of chilled wine! Mmmmm... There is a glass topped well by the ground floor elevator so you can see the tide coming in. The location is perfect to walk around in the evening and try the stylish restaurants of Trapani. During the day you can get easily to the ferries to take you to the Egadi islands. The pastries around here are mouth watering. The only slight negative is the parking situation. We raced around trying to find 12euros for the day rate parking on the street next to the hotel which was stressful but actually the reception desk keeps coins so just ask for the change from them. There is free parking down the road but we thought it was a bit too far away. Also, we were rather rail-roaded into taking the hydro-foil to Egadi but in retrospect would have preferred to book a seat on a boat that does the touring for you as a whole inclusive day trip. So check out fully what's available on the port side.

Room Tip: Perhaps choose a room high up as sometimes there are street events down below the hotel and if you a...
