“Top hotel, lovely location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for 2 nights. Tophotel right in the center with a sunroof and a lovely view on the sea. Very friendly and helpful staff who speak English very well. Big rooms, very clean. It has a great design and is set right in the quiet part of the center. Some minor issues are that you have to pay extra for breakfast, daily cleaning and parking.

Very clean and quiet. Great location. Comfortable rooms. Staff very helpful. Even walked us to the ATM to explain how it worked....slide your card across to enter the door! Evening drinks on the terrace very pleasant. Good breakfast. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor or spend more for a sea view.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Fantastic location in the heart of the old town, right next to the sea. The room was very pleasant and clean but it would have been lovely to have had a sea view room and a balcony we could sit on.The hotel itself was very nice with a boutique feel (i really liked the Sicilian tiles which were on the ceiling) and the staff were really friendly and helpful, especially Antonino who we checked in with. Breakfast was lovely on the roof terrace. We would definitely recommend.

They've done a nice job restoring this historic building into a boutique hotel overlooking the water. The room was very comfortable and luxurious and there was even a gym downstairs. You'd be hard-pressed to find a nicer hotel in Trapani...

My wife and I stayed here two nights on our tour of Sicily. It was the best of the six hotels we stayed at--and most were very good. Our fourth floor room had an outside deck overlooking the harbor, a separate kitchen area with appliances, a sitting are as well as a VERY comfortable bed in a separate, spacious bedroom. We we're only steps from the breakfast area with its typical sumptuous Italian breakfasts and late afternoon happy hour. The location is excellent--just steps from the old town and midway between Erice and Mozia--two major area sights. It's also near the Donnafugata winery which offers tours and the best wine in Sicily.

Room Tip: As k for the top, fourth floor room with deck.

Just loved this accomodation on our recent tSicilian holiday. Standout of all places we stayed. Perfect location in a great city. Comfy bed and decent bathroom that could have been a bit cleaner in the shower grout. Only minus I would give this place. Breakfast good and great staff serving you. Evening aperitif was a bonus. Great front desk staff.

I stayed at La Gancia last week for my first visit to Trapani and could not have been more impressed. The room was a good size with a great view of the sea. Fantastic rainfall shower in the bathroom. Staff were really friendly too. The roof-top terrace was great for breakfast and perfect for evening drinks watching the sun go down. So many great places to eat within 5 minutes or so on foot - so nice not to need a car! Will definitely stay there again.
