Room: 2 night stay in twin room. Small comfortable room with wardrobe, desk, modern TV and private ensuite. Free wi-fi with good connection. No safe facilities were provided in the room.
Sleep Quality: Comfortable single bed. Air conditioned room that was dark for sleeping, however road noise is audible. We were unfortunate to experience the sounds of the truck collecting rubbish in the early hours of both mornings.
Bathroom: Small bathroom with toilet, bidet, shower (no bath), hand basin. Whilst the water pressure and heat is very good, the shower cubicle is very small. Anyone larger than average may struggle. We saw the size of the shower cubicle in one other room and it was a little larger than ours. Very clean with great linen (large towel, face washers, hand towels, bath mats) and a selection of toiletries available in the room. Lovely touches included a hand held make up mirror.
Food: b/fast is served in the communal area at a time of your choice. Hot food is not offered at b/fast, rather a variety of packaged pastries/cakes/croissants along with some cereal, bread for toasting and a small selection of fruits and yoghurts, cheese and meats. Tea and coffee is available all day. I’m sure a selection could be tailored to your tastes just be speaking with the very hospitable hosts.
Location: Located on one of the main avenues of Trapani (Via Giovanbattista Fardella), the B&B is approx 15mins walking from the old town and approx 2km (30mins walk) away from the cable car to Erice. Free parking is just 5 mins walk away. For evening dining, I’d recommend the old town (which could be up to 15-20mins walk) due to higher number of choices. Very limited immediately surrounding the B&B. There are no sea views here and the outdoor terrace overlooks the main street. If you have your own transport and are staying in Trapani as a base to explore surrounding places (eg Egadi Islands, Erice, San Vito lo Capo, Segasta, Marsala, etc), then the location is very good.
Service: Elda and Vito are simply fantastic. They could not be more hospitable, accommodating, and friendly. They are happy to provide any advice you need and nothing is a bother for them. They do speak some English which is improving all the time. I did wake them a little early one morning (requiring their assistance) and I was greeted with a hug!
Value for money: 2 nights was €140 for two including b/fast, which was good value.
Other: The B&B is located just off the main street and the main entrance is a large wooden door. I was very concerned before entering as it did not resemble anything like the pictures. Once inside though, it is very very nice, clean and comfortable. Three individual rooms are provided, each with their own ensuites. In the main communal area, you will find a kitchen, large fridge, terrific lounge area, large dining table and a coffee machine. You also have access to a lovely outdoor terrace. Elda & Vito have created a space where you feel like you are staying with friends in your own private quarters in a lovely open, spacious home. If you prefer a large buffet b/fast in a western style hotel, this is not the place for you. It is however clean, comfortable, welcoming, & very friendly.
