Top quality in the Carpathians

The Klen Hotel combines Western quality accommodations with the warm Ukrainian hospitality. Finding a good, clean, safe place to stay in Ukraine can be hit or miss. The Klen Hotel is a gem, both in terms of the top quality of its Eco, Scandinavian style facilities (natural wood and stone) and the professional management and service team entirely dedicated to making sure guests enjoy their stay. The management speaks multiple languages. We rented the Chalet with my parents and two kids for two weeks during our summer trip to Ukraine from the US. The facilities were impeccable – and all of us are allergy sufferers and often have a rough time staying at stuffy hotel rooms. Our kids, including a picky teenager, had a blast exploring the property: access to the river, soccer games, an onsite playground, swings, etc. And did I mention fantastic food? The management takes personal care to make sure ingredients are always fresh and are willing to accommodate dietary preferences of guests. Local cheeses from the mountains are a must to try. We have traveled and stayed at a wide range of hotels in the US, Mexico, Europe, the Middle East, etc. I would comfortably place the Klen Hotel in the category of the highest quality Bed-and-Breakfasts, or family owned hotels, and would have no reservations recommending it to family and friends. We will certainly be back again ourselves next time we visit Ukraine.
