Domenico is a great host, he picked me up at the station, gave me very good information about places to get nice food and drinks. The place is on a great location, it can't be any better, the apartment is very comfortable and has a good vibe. Domenico made me feel very welcome from the first e-mails on and he contributed a lot to my perfect Trapani experience!
This is for me the real AirBNB experience. Domenico truely cares to give you a local experience and make sure you have everything you need. Apparently he decided to call the place after his grandma, who used to live in the apartment. Indeed when I enetered the apartment it reminded me of my own grandma style - basic and full of heritage. The place is aspacious, room is big and comfortable. To comment on what I read in other reviews, the stairs leading to the apartment are indeed kind of stip (some variation of amsterdam stairs) definitely not handicapped accessible, but otherwise not an issue at all.
Domenico helped me book a boat tour to favignana, invited me to join a nice night out as soon as i landed, and gave great recommendations for restaurants. Also he is a fun conversation partner. He truely knows the neighbourhood people.
Place is surprisingly cheap, location is superb.
DONT THINK TWICE - book it...
Frederico's aunt welcome me she was very nice . The place was clean and very well located but the place was not appropriate for me. I saw the pictures with the stair but I tough it was to get to the bed. I recommend this place to young people .
Ottima sistemazione! Molto vicino al mare, a due passi dal porto, nel centro storico! Casa spaziosa e dotata di tutto il necessario. Ma, sicuramente la cosa più apprezzata e la disponibilità e la gentilezza di Domenico.
Domenico is really friendly :) I would recommend staying in his place anyone visiting Trapani. Location is great, room was nice and clean and everything was as described in the listing :)
- hôte très accueillant
- appartement bien situé au cœur de trapani
- appartement propre
- pas de climatisation, difficilement supportable au mois d'août
- escalier pour atteindre l'appartement difficile (échelle que l'on voit sur les photos).
Nous avons passé un bon séjour mais le prix semble un peu élevé vs les prestations en dépôt d'un accueil très chaleureux.
Casa Grandma Bartola ti da la possibilità di tornare indietro di almeno 40 anni in una Trapani che tra poco nn ci starà più. Essenziale e centralissima offre il necessario re vivere appieno la città come un vero trapanese! Nuda e cruda ma affascinate! Domenico è stato carinissimo e già dopo 2 min sembrava di essere amici di lunga data!
