“Highly recommended - look no further for 1st class accommodation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We have just returned after 4 fantastic days in Trapani. This hotel was recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. In fact all the positive reviews on Trip Advisor are spot on so I don't have much more to add. The location is very central, the rooms are spotlessly clean and very modern and the receptionists and owner go out of their way to make sure that you feel comfortable and at home. 5 Star PLUS.... will return and will highly recommend to anyone whether you are there for business or leisure. Ideal also for families with young children as all rooms have a kitchenette and dining facilities.

We have chosen this hotel after checking its reviews on this website. The accomodation is very clean and the staff is friendly. We got free parking for the night and at reception they were gentle enough to explain where to go in Trapani. I would reccomend this accomodation to everyone!

Choosing this hotel was not difficult: I just chose number 1 on tripadvisor.com. It turned out to be a great choice for a number of reasons.

First of all, Ms. Giovanna, one of the young ladies at reception, was so forthcoming and prompt with her great advice that it showed that she wanted to make our stay a very pleasant one indeed. Furthermore, nothing was too much trouble. We even asked her to give us full information about bus times to and from Erice and she reverted as promptly as she said she would. She even contacted the AST for us (the Azienda Sicilia Trasporti, the intercity bus service company). So, from the moment we booked, we felt we were really welcome.

However, this is just the start, as it were.

Upon landing at Trapani airport, we were greeted by the taxi service which was booked by Ms. Giovanna and we were really glad to be at the Hotel in less than 20 minutes from our landing at Trapani, which was absolutely great.

The hotel itself is extremely new, very well-appointed and the rooms are meticulously furnished with all modern amenities. Our room was large, the bed even more so and the room was, in reality, an apartment with a small (yet well-sized) kitchenette, a modern and spotlessly clean refridgerator, in-room temperature control, and a great powerful hot shower and good quality toiletries.

I cannot emphasise enough the cleanliness of the room. It felt as though I had cleaned it myself and I kept forgetting I was staying at a hotel rather than a friend's home.

The location of the hotel is also extremely good. First of all, it is flanked, on the right, by a very good pasticceria/take-away (Il Tortellino) which is a joy to behold even when closed, let alone when open and selling its delicious (and well-priced) fare and on the left by a very good breakfast bar where we could have breakfast for 4.20 euro (for both of us) which was swarming with the locals, which shows that it is the real thing. It is also possible to buy lunch at Il Tortellino and then take it up to the room, should you so wish. It is a luxury to be able to have such good food at a proper dining table in one's hotel room!

The hotel is situated about 10-15 minutes comfortable and pleasant walk away from the city centre. The street itself (GB Fardella) is a very pleasant high street lined with high-street shops (both Italian and international brands) and also the odd local quaint shop. Unmissable are the shoes and bag shops, which abound in this area.

Two further plus points are that the hotel is situated about 10 metres away from the bus stop which makes travelling to other places in the Trapanese and the airport a breeze. Furthermore, it is situated just a stone's throw away from a cinema, which can be great on a winter's night.

The dinner suggestions given to us by Ms. Giovanna were also great (I review them under the respective restaurant names here on tripadvisor.com).

If you are looking for very good quality accommodation in Trapani do not look any further. Book this hotel. It is also extremely good for families with children.

Room Tip: If travelling with kids, advise before.

Spent 5 lovely days with friends in December 2012. The apartments are very central, modern, clean, and well-equipped. The location is great. The bus from the airport stops right opposite. You can take a bus to Palermo from near the Cinema Royal which is 2/3 doors away. The train station is a 5 minute walk from the apartments. The Centro Storico is not too far away and Via GB Fardella is a very nice street full of great shops. Il Tortellino, selling delicious food and sweets, can be found next door. Giovanna, the receptionist, is lovely. From the very first time I contacted her she was always prompt with her replies and extremely helpful. I would stay there again any time.

We have just returned from Trapani. Following other reviews we decided to book this accomodation. We really loved it! The accomodation looked exactly as in the pictures. The room was made daily and it was very well kept. Next to the location there is a lovely bar and pasteceria. What we really loved was the fact that exacly next to the accomodation there is a bus stop from where you can visit Erice and Palermo. It is also a ten minute nice walk to the center of Trapani. The receptionists where also very helpful whenever we needed anything. Would definately recommend this option and would definately book again should I return to Trapani!

We spent 6 days in Trapani as a base to explore it and nearby places of interest – Erice, Segesta and Selinunte. The Fardella Centrale was a perfect home for us, convenient to buses and trains, not too far from the centro storico. Our room was large and airy with a fridge and double-burner cooktop, enough closet space and a comfortable bathroom. Situated on the first floor, access was simple and straightforward. Manning the front desk during our stay, Giovanna was a gem. She immediately made us feel very welcome, providing efficient, responsive and warm service. Her English was limited but she was ultra-patient with my fractured Italian.
We were happy to have a room overlooking the main street. We live in a quiet area and don’t look for something similar when we come to Italy. The bustle of Italian street life is fine by us and we slept with the windows open, which meant putting up with the odd mosquito. Our only small criticisms of the Fardella was its lack of shelf space in the bathroom and a leaky shower door – two endemic problems in Italian hotels. Otherwise it was perfect and we definitely will stay there again when next in Trapani.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper you might want to choose a room that doesn't overlook the main str...
