“Very good place with a bit weak internet”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

Firstly, I would like to say that we booked the place for a good rate - really good value for money. Apartments were spacious, clean and well equipped. The location of that B&B was also very nice.

The owner was very helpful and he helped us getting a transfer from the airport for our group of 7 people. The price was reasonable. We could also rent a car through him for a good price and he found us a car that fits 7 people, which worked well for us.

The only one thing that must be improved is the wifi internet connection. In this times, places like this can't really afford not having a good internet. The currnt connection was quite weak and it used to disconnect quite often.

Overall, a very nice place and I do recommend it!

We have just returned from a visit to Sicily. I had booked a triple room at Casa Trapani via Expedia but when I had my confirmation email from Casa Trapani I was offered an upgrade to a flat and the option of an airport pick up.

We did upgrade to a flat and it was very comfortable, suiting us well for the 4 night stay. Our flat was on the ground floor and was an internal flat with no windows to outside. It wasn't a problem but if we had been staying longer I would have liked an opening window.

The apartment consisted of a large bedroom with a big bed (hard mattress which didn't suit me but was fine for my son and husband) and plentiful storage; a kitchen/living area with a small double sofa bed (not very comfortable) and a reasonably well equipped kitchen (no mugs and only tiny espresso cups) though we didn't do any cooking; and a good sized bathroom (sachets supplied) with a powerful shower and a washing machine. There were televisions in the lounge and bedroom. The apartment had free air conditioning too and we used this so that we could shut our internal windows and cut out some of the inevitable noise from fellow residents. The apartment was clean and there were fresh towels every 2 days if wanted. There was free Wi-Fi in the apartment which worked albeit on dial up speed. A hairdryer was supplied.

The location was excellent, being only a 20 minute walk from the old town. Vito, who lives in the top floor flat, was delightful and exceptionally helpful. We ate in the old town where the atmosphere was lovely. We visited Erice which was pretty (and where I had an exceptional pizza) and we also took a boat trip to an island where we hired (pretty dire) bicycles. There we had another great meal in a small café just off the square - very rustic, serving fish.

We took the airport pickup option which cost E30 and was excellent, especially as we arrived quite late. On our return we took the bus which cost E15 for the three of us.

Breakfast was in the local bar where we had a hot drink and a sweet cake which was adequate but our son, surprisingly, wanted something savoury.

Casa Trapani is one of the best places I have ever stayed in. On the phone, the owner made sure we were following the good directions to the apartment even though it was late at night. When we arrived he explained the facilities of the apartment and how we can plan the holiday. The apartment looked too good to be true so I went in all the rooms to find something negative...but the more I saw, the nicer it got! It was a self-catering apartment with all the utensils and facilities in the kitchen and also in the other rooms. It was super clean, comfortable, welcoming and with a free wifi facility. The apartment is close to the city centre and to the Medieval city, Erice. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Trapani.

This appears to be a well run business, modern and comfortable with a high turnover of guests. It is a modern building and the flat we had was well furnished with a good strong shower. The kitchen was lacking a few implements (eg; can opener) and not many cups and saucers etc. Also it was in a corner of the building and had no external window, only a ventiilator onto the inner courtyard (covered with a transparent roof) which is not ideal for cooking. The owner/manager Emiglio is helpful and friendly.
I like places with character and this is a comfortable place, but I would not describe it as particularly characterful. You will not be as much in touch with the locals as if you had a full B&B, but at least you have the option of making your own evening meals,.
At €30 we also had breakfast included, which consisted of going to a local cafe for coffee and one cake/pastry.

Room Tip: Make sure you don't get the corner flat if you want to cook in the evening. However, you may hav...

Great service and hospitality. The host helps you with everything and speak good english. 20 minutes walk to the port and "old town". 30 minutes walk to the "funivia" cableway that will transport you up the the town of Erice with breathtaking views. 1h20m bustrip to the city of Palermo. And do not miss a trip from the port of Trapani to the islands Favignana, Levanzo and Marettimo.

The apartment consisted of a large bedroom and bathroom, small kitchen and a balcony. It was newly renovated and spotless. The entrance hallway was very attractive, however there is no lift so we had to carry the suitcases up 2 flights. Cleaner very obligingly carried mine down when we were leaving.
The owner speaks good English and was very helpful in explaining the breakfast arrangement at a local cafe and recommending restaurants for dinner. He also advised where to park the car to avoid a ticket in the morning peak hour.
Only a short drive into the old city area and the port. Found a lovely wine bar in the old city for a tapas style dinner. Only tourists in the place!

Room Tip: Stairs may be a challenge for some.
