Need to Know
If you’re looking for nightlife and discos don’t come here. KLEN is an escape from the noise. You’ll find peace and a chance to reconnect with nature.
The Carpathian region suffers from poor quality roads in places, some forums say it’s not that bad. But there are noticeable holes.
In the month of September only some locals burn waste (instead of composting) which may result in temporary air quality loss. Although this activity happens all over the world and isn’t an isolated issue, this family-run hotel is just upfront about it 😉

What an amazing and beautiful place to visit and relax in the Carpathian Mountains of Ukraine. Conveniently located off the main road ( but set back far enough to escape the road noise), KLEN Hotel is on the Prut River and has 11 comfortable rooms.
