Residence La Gancia
Ranked #1 of 18 Hotels in Trapani
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Stayed at Hotel for two nights and found the hotel rooms to be very modern ,clean and spacious. The hotel itself is located right next to the seawall and has loads of great restaurants nearby. We found the actual location of the hotel ideal for exploring the surrounding area. The staff spoke perfect English and were very helpful recommending most of the good restaurants. We found the hotel to be well worth the money and worth it 4 star rating .

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a sea view

We stayed at Residence La Gancia in mid may for 1 night. We paid €100 for a room overlooking the square including breakfast but received a seaview room. This hotel is the best in Trapani it is perfectly located across from the water and in the main shopping/restaurant district. We were greeted at the hotel by a lovely man who went out of his way to show us the hotel facilities then escorted us to our room where our luggage was awaiting us. The room was wonderful and spacious with a little kitchenette, desk and ottoman as you walk in followed by a large bed and cupboard. (beware there is a €20 fee if you use the kitchenette) The bathroom was very large with a fantastic shower! the hotel is only 3 years old so it is pretty much brand new. The solarium on the roof top is great as well as the roof top terrace which offers food and drinks after 6pm- make sure you have a drink before dinner watching the sunset!- If you purchase drinks the nibbles are free. Breakfast was served on the roof terrace with lots of hot and cold food to choose from. We also had free fast wifi

Note that Trapani is a ghost town between 1pm-430pm as everyone is asleep. If you are driving be sure to have a GPS the hotel is very hard to find, we also had to pay for parking. Erice and San Vito Lo Capo are wonderful towns close to Trapani be sure to drop by there, they are worth the drive.

Thank you Residence la gancia for a wonderful value for money stay, we will definitely return!

Room Tip: On check ask for a sea view room

Enroute to Residence La Gancia, we were told by our driver that we were staying at 'the best hotel' in Trapani. He was right! Located on the seashore AND the street to the shopping area, the hotel is within easy walking to restaurants, shops, and the sea. We were in Trapani for the sacred "Procession of the Mysteries" on Good Friday, and when we wanted a break from the crowds, we were able to continue watching the procession from the roof top restaurant/bar area. Our room (for three) was beautiful, large, and with a dynamite view of the sea. Housekeeping was excellant and all staff was helpful, professional, and friendly. We look forward to our return to this well-priced, very nice, hotel.

Room Tip: The additional charge for a room with a view of the sea is well worth the cost.

Excellent location right on the shore front, but extremely easy for all the shops and local eateries.

On arrival the gentleman at reception was lovely although he didn't speak much English, but thankfully I didn't have a problem or query.

The room is absolutely lovely albeit a bit dark. There are facilities to do self catering but this is chargeable of used at €20. The whole place is very tastefully done.

Only reason I didn't score it 5 stars is because there were no complimentary tea/
Coffee/water facilities, which I would expect in a 4 star hotel.

A smashing hotel and if I return to Trapani I would definitely stay here!

We arrived about 10:30pm and were greeted by name ("the last people to check in") which was a lovely touch. Throughout our three night stay, the staff went over and above expectations, even helping my then boyfriend with choosing a restaurant for his proposal to me!
We booked the last apartment (courtyard facing) and it seemed quite cheap so I wasn't sure what to expect – but it was so clean and modern, set in the traditional stone building. It was much larger than I expected, and had a huge wet room, kitchen area, fresh flowers and large wardrobe.
As soon as you step out of the door, you can walk along the coast and it's so close to Via Giuseppe Garibaldi where most of the cafés and bars are. There's also an amazing ice-cream parlour next door to the hotel!
I would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to my friends – I cannot fault it at all.

Superb service, beautiful accommodations and gorgeous location, there is no other place I would stay in Trapani. That is almost all that needs be said about La Gancia.
The only downside, and don’t let this deter you, is that it is a little hard to find. It is on the other side of the water from the port and there is no street address other than the old fish market: Piazza Mercato del Pesce. Parking is on the street to the right and the hotel is to the left with no vehicle access. It is marked by a flag only and a wall sign that is flush with the building. But once you have found it, you will want to stay.
Antonio was incredibly helpful behind the desk and made superb recommendations for dinners. The rooms were beautiful and comfortable with spectacular views. The common areas were lovely and the rooftop breakfast room and bar, with indoor and outdoor seating was perfect. It is also the best place to be for strolling in the evening along the sea wall or turn a corner and you will find the shops. I loved this hotel!

I was thrilled with my room and with the location of the hotel. The 4th floor bar has wonderful views over the ocean and you get nibbles with your drink. Rooms are spotless and feel spacious and modern. The staff are welcoming and helpful. Great place to stay. Due to festivities in the piazza outside the hotel I was happy with my room with a view only of the inside courtyard. Not sure if noise could have been a problem with sea-view rooms. Highly recommended.
