Residence Porta delle Botteghelle
Ranked #3 of 175 Trapani B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We have stayed at some fantastic hotels when visiting Sicilia. But before our Trapani visit, I really had problems finding a tempting alternative. We ended up with Porta delle Botteghelle. The location was just perfect. The service was also really good. Our room was big and nice and we also liked the bathroom. The breakfast was adequate. This is not a boutique hotel, but a nice B&B with a great location, superb service and rooms of good standard.

We arrived late, outside the normal reception hours to be very pleasantly greeted by Aldo, the owner of the hotel. He showed us to our spacious, air conditioned room and then advised us as to where we would be able to eat at that time.
The hotel was immaculate in all aspects. Breakfast was very typically Italian with fruit, cold meat cuts, pastries and cakes.
It is in the heart of the old town; maybe 50 metres one way to the beach and 80 meters to the other side of this finger of land overlooking the port. We were there for a long weekend and can not wait to return. The whole experience was really enjoyable. Looking forward to seeing Aldo again!
One small tip: ask Aldo to arrange a taxi from the airport. It is the same price as picking one up but he will send (another) Aldo who really is the complete font of local knowledge, recommending where to get the best fish, pasta or pizza as well as things to do during the day.

We were made to feel very welcome by Aldo and his father during our weekend stay at Porta delle Botteghelle. This is a lovely small (extra clean) hotel in the centre of the old town which we really enjoyed staying at. I would use it again if I return to Trapani and would definitely recommend it.

Friendly staff, very clean room, safe hotel in the Trapani old town center. Historic centre and the harbour is near the hotel.
Great value for money. Free car parking is near the hotel. Little bit plain breakfast if you will stay for one week.

Provides the level of service that one always hopes to find in a B&B. After Palermo, Trapani provided a haven of peace and civilization. Aldo, the host was most courteous and helpful in giving suggestions and making reservations. He met us off the bus and later provided other useful information. He gave the impression of really wanting to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The elevator to our room was modern, the room was large and kept clean throughout our five-night stay. The breakfasts were good and included products from the family's estate. The location of the Porta was perfect - a quiet street right in the centre of town .

We have just returned from a four day break in Trapani. We wanted a good hotel in the old quarter and after some research settled on Porta delle Botteghelle. Located in a narrow side street with a very unimposing entrance, we were greeted by Aldo, who turned out to be charming and helpful, to the point of getting some skimmed milk for our friends. The rooms were very clean and well equipped with great bathrooms. Nothing was too much trouble for Aldo and his father. He speaks excellent English and recommended some excellent restaurants. Highly recommended.

Excellent spot for a walk to the historic centre and the harbour to catch boats for Favignana. The owners, Aldo and Salvo are very helpful and it is clear that they have gone through great pains to do up the place whilst keeping some of the charming partsof the old building intact. Rooms are excellent. The breakfast is served in a nearby onfectionary and is slightly limited. Overall it was an excellent stay.
