When we arrived in the early evening in mid-May we were delighted when the taxi stopped at a fantastic location right on the old sea wall of Trapani.

After a warm welcome we were taken to our partial sea view room (202). The room was essentially two rooms: one with a table and three chairs, a small sofa, and a kitchenette (extra cleaning charge of 20 euro if you use the kitchen) and the second the bedroom with either a king or twin beds (can be separated), a small table, chair and flat screen TV, night tables and decent reading lights. The bathroom is very long, with a large rectangular shower with rain and hand held showerheads, bidet, toilet and modern marble slab sink, hair dryer and nice amenities. The artwork in the room and hotel are a highlight. The building is obviously old and our room had some wonderful quirks - a piece of what seemed to be an old wall sticking out of the wall in the bedroom; and painted ceramic tiles as part of the ceiling in the living room that added to the overall appeal! There was always something of interest to see, so keep you eyes peeled - not everything is as obvious as the glass in the floor just past reception.

Reception closes at around 21:00 and after that access to the hotel is through a back door, key required to get back in. This was a very easy process.

The reception staff were outstanding: friendly with excellent dining and sightseeing recommendation as well as other assistance for onward travel, loan of an iron and ironing board when time did not allow for laundry (part of our stay was on a weekend when there is no laundry service and regular service takes two days). They ensured we had a wonderful visit.

Breakfast is on the enclosed terrace on the rooftop. Gorgeous views and a very nice breakfast (bread, cakes, biscuits, cereals, yoghurt, fresh fruit, juices, hard-boiled eggs, cold cuts and cheeses. Coffee is made to order and was excellent). When the winds are light the terrace can be partly open, but as it was quite windy during our visit, the coverings (thick plastic) were lowered for our comfort.

On our final evening we decided that drinks at sunset on the terrace would be a wise alternative to a full dinner! With the wine we were offered some nibbles (toasted bread with five toppings, peanuts, olives, tomato and pecorino spears, and strawberries with sugar for dipping. Four drinks, appetizers, a toast, and coffee came to a very reasonable 30 euro. What a lovely evening.

There is free wifi, just obtain the login and password details from reception. We found that the wifi worked without these during the night.

We decided to visit Erice by taxi and booked one through Trapani Tours – for a very reasonable 35 Euro we were driven to Erice by a fabulous man (unfortunately I forgot the name), dropped at various sights with directions and recommendations of what to look for (all in Italian and hand gestures), and in the end he maneuvered his car through the narrow streets to Antica Pasticceria Del Convento (his personal favourite) to try a warm Genovese pastry. Simply perfect way to experience Erice. Trapani itself is wonderful and there are so many interesting places to visit nearby – make sure you allocate sufficient time to explore.

Outstanding property, location and staff, highly recommend.

Room Tip: we felt that the slight additional charge for the partial sea view was well worthwhile

Having just come from Palermo, with everything that encompasses, I loved this hotel. The area around the hotel is clean, quiet. The hotel itself is only two years old. The hosts behind the desk are very welcoming, speak good English, good restaurant recommendations. Parking is very easy. We had a room which looked over a courtyard. Not unattractive. Breakfast on the terrace was wonderful. Both variety on offer (illy coffee) and view. The position of the hotel is right by the sea. Lovely. Wifi stronger in the lobby.
All I can say is you will enjoy your stay. Very reasonably priced.

Went for a weekend to Trapani with a group of girls and this hotel was fantastic. The rooms/bathrooms were nice, spacious and clean. The breakfast was above expectations with fresh fruit, bread, fresh rikotta, ham, cheeses and several cereals, cakes and sweets to choose from. The breakfast is served on the terrace with a lovely view. One can also have drinks on the terrace during the day/evening. The barman was very polite and funny :)

The hotel is in a fantastic location. The receptionist was very patient and helpful. The beach, shops, restaurants, bars are all just a short walk away. The ferry to visit the Egadi islands is also just a five minute walk. I highly recommend this hotel and will be booking it again for my next visit to Trapani.

We stayed in the top floor suite which has a stunning view of the Mediterranean and a beautiful terrace. The suite was huge. It was clean but the shower grout and the rug could benefit from some additional cleaning. The water in the bathroom was not potable so a complimentary bottle of water would have been nice. Otherwise the stay, the breakfast and the staff were most enjoyable.

If you enjoy a peaceful, relaxing stay in Trapani, you must stay at the Residence La Gancia.
I can only add to all the other positive reviews - a fantastic place to stay in Trapani.
The rooms were very comfortable, stylish, clean and spacious. The hotel location is excellent!
The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Thank you for a wonderful stay and all your help. Buffet breakfast on the hotel terrace was so enjoyable that we lost track of time - the view of the sea is truly magnificent.

Unfortunately, we planned too little time in this area - a mistake. This is an area of Sicily I would like to get to know better. Trapani is a wonderful town with a very positive energy - my favourite in Sicily.
