We chose the La Gancia for it location more than anything else and we were not disappointed. Just in front of the fish market, facing the sea, the hotel offers a superb common terrace where you can enjoy a drink or your breakfast in an unique atmosphere (the sunset was amazing). The room by itself was really large, good and... More

I stayed in a building near the Residence that is run by the hotel. Very beautiful room and the view was spectacular. I had a veranda over looking the ocean which was clear and blue. Wonderful spot in the beautiful town of Trapani.

The hotel was small but very nice. Rooms was also nice. No restaurant. But a small bar at the top floor with very nice view. Parking was ok. Not free. This hotel was just a too expensive comparing to other hotels. Enjoy our short stay.

Second time at the Residence La Gancia at it did not disappoint us. It was again a great experience with a very friendly staff and we were lucky to get the Junior Suite for our family of 3 travellers at the day we arrived, thanks to a last minute no-show. We had booked somewhere else , but were happy to... More

Great hotel in the heart of Trapani, just few steps from restaurants, bars, shopping and the port. Beautiful large, clean and quiet rooms. Breakfast on the roof-top overlooking the sea side. Excellent, helpful staff.

La Gancia is a great choice when visiting Trapani. The location couldn't be better, just steps from the bustling part of Old Town, within easy walking distance of many restaurants and shops. The hotel is located right on the street that runs along the sea, so it has beautiful views from the rooftop restaurant and some of the rooms. In... More

Excellent location. Very friendly staff and management and always helpful. Room was very clean and the service was excellent. The roof bar is so relaxing and well served. What else could you ask for. Will definitely be back.

Very well located, rooms designed with great taste and highly functional, great staff. Room 103, a junior suite room, has glass floors that allows you to see the old structure of the building, it gives a stunning effect. I imagine there are other rooms that have glass floors too. Breakfast is on the terrace which has great views. I'd definitely... More
