Crystal Hotel
Ranked #14 of 18 Hotels in Trapani
Reviewed 7 December 2017 via mobile

Stayed for a few days and liked the room, which was spacious but in need of some updating.The AC was tricky but eventually worked. Breakfast was good with quality products and a variety of hot and cold options. Unfortunately the coffee was surprisingly bad...especially for Italy.
I cannot praise the staff enough. The two girls, Vittoria and Cristina, I think, at reception were charming and very helpful, courteous and knowledgeable as was our shuttle driver, Nicola, who also accompanied us on a tour of some really special places round Trapani.
The location is excellent, near the train and bus station, the beaches and the lively old town with its bars and restaurants.
Would defenitely stay there again.

Stayed: October 2017, travelled with family

The Crystal looks a bit brutal from the outside and it is not a hotel to chose if you wish to spend a lot of time in the hotel rather than out and about. However, it is very easy to walk through the old town, go to the beach or walk back after an evening meal out, which is a big plus point for its very central location. The staff were very pleasant and efficient and our bedroom large, comfortable, clean and quiet, even though our room faced the adjacent railway station. The room had several shelves as well as ample hanging space in the wardrobe, so we did not have a problem unpacking, unlike some other guests.The shower was huge and fierce - full marks for that - and the shower gel/shampoo replaced on a daily basis Breakfast was fine: my husband particularly liked the fruit provided, especially the peaches. Our one dinner in the hotel was of a reasonable standard given the size of our group (49): it is simply unrealistic to expect the best Italian cuisine for large tour groups in this type of hotel. The bar (and barman) were fine when the bar were open - but it is certainly not a place you would chose to relax for an hour or two. On the whole however, the Crystal was of a comparable standard to most other 4 star hotels we have stayed in, in Italy: just be aware the standard might not be exactly what you would expect in the UK.

This hotel is centrally located near the train station and dozens of great restaurants and cafes. The service at the hotel is good and it has a boutique hotel feel. The rooms are not modern. It appears they are straight out of the late 80s or early 90s. However, I feel this is part of the charm. The rooms are super clean. The breakfast is also very good. I recommend this hotel for tourists and business travelers alike.

Close to the historical center. Easy place to park your car on the street near the hotel. Helpful staff. There are missing outlets for charging phones and other devices (cameras, PCs, etc). Modernized room. Missing luggage rack for the two suitcases of a couple. Cleanliness of the room and bathroom is good. Good breakfast, with good selection of breads, pastries, cheeses, sausages, fruits, coffees, etc.

The town of Trapani is an industrial port with but a small beach about 300m from this hotel.
The town railway station lies next door but we were not disturbed by the infrequent trains. Just across the road lies a small shop selling inexpensive fruit & vegetables, water, crisps & wine.
Room 411 was a corner room, reasonably sized & modern with twin beds, bedside tables, double settee/pull-down bed, case rack, large TV on a table. The shower room had a super shower, sink, WC, bidet, hairdryer, tissues, plenty of towels and shower gel/shampoo, all in red marble tiles. But for a stain in the middle of our bedroom’s carpet, our room was cleaned & made-up daily.
There were no drawers so one had to live out of a suitcase. We had a reasonable selection for breakfasts, Inc. bacon & scrambled eggs. We had one dinner here, which was strictly tourist menu.
