“Delightful little hotel”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

As we didn't fancy the long drive from the East coast of Sicily back to Palermo airport in the early hours, we looked for a small hotel near to the car hire depot (Cinisi). This is a gem! Not only is it a big surprise to find a light, spacious, clearn room in the small, cramped district, but the owner, Claudio, works so hard to welcome and look after his guests. He drove us to a restaurant that evening and then picked us up afterwards. That is really above and beyond what most people would do!
Cinisi beach was a nice surprise too. On a hot, sunny day in October it was almost empty and the large rollers gave it a different character.

We chose to stay here as we had an early flight out of the Palermo airport. Reviews are all great and for good reason. A short (10 minute drive) to the Palermo airport. The B&B was lovely, clean and rooms were large. What makes the stay so great however is the owner, Claudio. Although he is new to this business his welcoming attitude and willingness to help his guests will continue to make his business successful.We arrived early and were shuttled to the airport to drop off our rental car. We had asked Claudio is there was any way he could arrange for us to visit the Crypts of Capuchin in Palermo. Claudio took us there himself, and as well showed us some highlights of Palermo. That's five star in our books! The shuttle service made for an easy early morning flight home.
Keep up the excellent work Claudio, Grazie mille.

My family and I had a great stay at this B and B before flying out of the Palermo airport. This place is a very short (10 minute drive) to the Palermo airport. Claudio was very welcoming. We had a very early flight out and Claudio got up at 4 am to get coffee and some breakfast for us. The B and B itself was very clean. Overall a great stay at a reasonable rate.

Room Tip: We had a first floor room with a double bed and three single beds - ideal for a family!

Great experience staying at this place before flying out. it's very close to the airport and to the car hire place.
The room is quite big, very clean, with air conditioning. Nice breakfast in the morning.
and a scale to weight your luggages!
We appreciated so much the help of Claudio, the owner. We turned up at his B&B at 10.30 pm and helped up finding another B&B and drove us there, as he was full that night! He also drove us to a nice restaurant for dinner. And as this was not kind enough, he turned up later to tell us he had a cancellation and was happy to have us with him... drove us back again...
Incredible!
i would really recommend you to stay there.

This beautiful friendly B and B is an ideal place to stay if you're catching a plane from Palermo. You don't have to go into Palermo itself, the very helpful owners do early morning breakfasts and check outs and also offer a shuttle service to the airport. We arrived by car and parked in the street without any problem. Our room was lovely - spacious, modern, spotless, and had insect nets fitted in the windows so we could leave them wide open.

This modern, clean and spacious b and b is a great place to stay. The owner, Claudio drove us to the little Cinisi beach for our last afternoon in Sicily, picked us up again and then took us to a nearby restaurant La Grace for our last delicious Sicilian dinner. Such hospitality. Claudio also provides an airport service.

My friend and I stayed at the Kunesias for two nights, prior to picking up a hire car at Palermo Airport, which is very close to the hotel (ten minutes by road). We really appreciated the helpfulness and pleasantness of the owner, Claudio, and were very happy with our spacious room and nice balcony. The bathroom was also excellent, with plenty of hot water at all times. There was free wi-fi Internet access in the room, which was also great. The breakfast was fine. We went twice to a nearby restaurant recommended by Claudio called Grace. Claudio very kindly provided transport to get us there free of charge as it was too far too walk. There isn't a great deal to do or see in Cinisi itself; the neighbouring town of Terrasini has more to offer by way of cafes and restaurants and also has a few decent beaches. It takes only ten minutes to walk from the Kunesias to Cinisi-Terrasini station, from where you can catch trains to Palermo, Segesta (for the ancient temple and theatre), Castellammare del Golfo and Trapani. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about the Kunesias - though had we not been renting a car at Palermo Airport, I doubt we would have stayed in Cinisi. We paid 60 Euros for a double room (inclusive of breakfast and taxes), which we thought represented great value for money. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Kunesias to travellers looking for a convenient and comfortable base close to Palermo Airport for a night or two. Incidentally, Claudio provides a very reasonably priced pick-up and drop-off service.
