Via G. Rubino angolo P.zza Ilio, Trapani, Sicily, Italy
"I am surprised by some of the negative comments. Star ratings are based on room size and Tiziano had wonderful rooms as it is a newly built (not city center) hotel. Yes you are a walk to the old city but nothing wrong with the neighborhoods you are walking through. Those reviewers are imposing US stereotypes on Italy with its small narrow softly lit city streets flanked with its multi-story buildings. If worried about the neighborhoods either walk down the harbor front with its normal offerings of eateries and then cut up to the old town or if you have a car drive down the waterfront with its ample parking or drive to the large parking area adjacent to the old town. Walking is a must as cars are forbidden in the city center itself. The hotel was clean (even the telltale runners on the elevator doors), well maintained, with ample on-site parking (Italian style) and a very friendly accommodating staff. The breakfast buffet was well above average but not exceptional and the coffee well made. Because of its location it is only a short drive from the autostrada and offers immediate access to the route to Marsala."
"Stayed here while on an organised trip. The hotel is modern, and the rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. There is air conditioning which is necessary when the heat is on outside. It is about 20-30 minute walk to the main area in Trapani, and a breakfast is provided, which consists mainly of cakes, and coffee/tea made as you require. "
"Pros-The hotel is situated in a good location, however it is NOT a 4 star as stated. Cons- Lorena at the front desk was not helpful. We asked her to make a reservation for us at one of 3 different ones we had chosen from Rick Steve’s guide book. She said our first choice was closed until the following Monday and the other 2 “were no good”. She did quickly recommend another restaurant and made reservations for us. We were the ONLY two patrons in that restaurant from 7:30pm until 9pm...on Friday night! This should’ve been a red flag. The food was awful, small portions and overpriced. While walking home, we found our first choice of restaurant was indeed open, And it’s so popular, there was a line to get in! ! I think she got payment kickback for sending hotel customers to the restaurant she suggested, or the owner is a friend etc. When we checked out,she was not able to get the printer to work and wanted us to write down our credit card info so she could launch it later”. We refused and when we asked for a written copy of the bill she suddenly got the printer to work again. Parking is atrocious . Patrons park anywhere and everywhere, blocking each other in. Mediocre breakfast, nothing special."
