Lonely Planet review
This recently extended B&B near the market just gets better and better. Rooms in the new building are fragrant with pinewood and combine traditional Hutsul bedspreads with ultra-modern showers. Owners Vasyl and Anna can cook you up breakfast (35uah), organise tours and excursions and even run Hutsul cookery classes (Vasyl is involved in Ukraine's embryonic Slow Food movement). Bikeland-affiliated.
Our independent authors have visited Smerekova Hata and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Rakhiv.
