“Great, pet friendly place.”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

I have stayed there recently, spent 2 nights. Ideal spot for a relaxed weekend and serves as a good base for exploring the beautiful NP Podyjí. Jana, the manager is super friendly and helpful. Way above expectations. The place is also very pet friendly, we had our 2 year old ridgeback girl with us and she also had a great time. Unfortunately our dog got bitten by so many ticks, mosquitoes and ants in the forest that got a very severe allergic reaction to these bites, but Jana offered her help at 10:00 PM, called their friend who was a local vet, and help arrived immediately. Highly recommeded, we would definitely return.

I slept in Penzion Jelen maybe 4 or 5 times and was always impressed by cozy stylish interior. Great view on castle, disposed service make this venue best place to stay when in Vranov.
I am a keen bicycle rider and Vranov area provides great bicycle routes for all kind of bikers, doesn't matter if you are fan of MTB, cross or road bike. Restaurants in walk distance, frankly just below the pension, ship journey on nearby Vranov dam, biker bus to Znojmo and wine cellars and wine tasting in biking distance are the reasons why to decide for Pension Jelen. Free WiFi, parking on the ground and nice garden with children's playing area make difference.

Room Tip: I stayed this time in appartment #8. Very spacious, nice, clean.

After cycling for five days, we were ready for a rest and just happened upon Penzion Jelen by chance, partly because we didn't want to cycle any farther up the hill looking at the other penzions. Lucky we stopped because it was a wonderful place to spend a few days - the room was light and bright, the penzion is an elegant older building and shops and restaurants are nearby.

The manager was very helpful, providing maps and directions to the nearby sights and beyond. The location itself is stunning with a view of the château and the sound of the river in the distance.

Room Tip: There is one ground floor apartment which overlooks the garden and main entry which lacks privacy, b...

I have stayed with my Family in this Penzion for several times and it was a very nice stay every time… The owners are very helpful and friendly people. Recently we arrived at the Penzion with a one-year-old-boy and the apartment was prepared for him – the toys, the baby cot, the feeding chair – everything you need. The Penzion is a beautiful old, but renovated house with nice rooms and apartments in it with a great view.
It is also a good place for a longer stay. If you want to go just trekking or touring the nearby castles or maybe you like swimming - it is certainly good place for you. Do not hesitate to come there with your children, as it is for sure friendly place for kids.
We will visit Penzion Jelen again in the future – no doubt about it.

We stayed in Pension Jelen for a few days just before the New Years Eve, in one of the top-floor apartments overlooking the Vranov castle. The apartment had two really spacious rooms (we were just the two of us but the apartment could easily fit four), both tastefully furnished with early-20th-century furniture, wooden floors and a lovely carpet. We felt very relaxed and pleasant in there. The bathroom was equipped with a shower, all nice and clean. There was a kitchenette in the apartment, which was just fine for making boiled eggs and perhaps a soup, real cooking would be a bit tricky. The view at the iconic castle was just charming. There is a free wifi in the house.

The owner was kind to offer to do breakfast shopping for us in Znojmo (about 15km) but as we wanted to have a dinner there anyway, we did the shopping ourselves. The hotel does not provide dinners so we tried a few of the local restaurants ('Country House', or something of this name, was simple but tolerable if not used too often). In Znojmo, we ate in hotel-restaurant 'Lahofer' in Vesela street, which was brilliant. The highlight of our stay was a trip to Hardegg (we walked from Cizov, it's about 5km walk from there) and there restaurant 'Hammerschmied'. Though not great looking from the outside, we felt like in a gastronomic heaven (at least compared to what you would get in a village of a similar side on the Czech side of the border).

We would definitely come again to Pension Jelen next time!

I have stayed in this Pension for a week and overall it was a very pleasant stay. The owners are very helpful and are happy to give you sightseeing tips and they even lend us a map of the local area. They are magazines available at the receptions for people to read in the biggish garden. If you wish you can also make a log fire in the garden. The only downside was that it can get noisy, like every place with children. Somebody has also stolen bits from our bikes from the locked shed. And there can be a slight problem with the plumbing, as this is quite an old house. Otherwise, the location is excellent – only about 2 mins from the centre of the town with restaurants, pubs and shops. You can also see the chateaux straight from the garden. I must also mention the kitchenette in the room, which is perfectly fine, although we never cooked and have eaten out every night instead. There is also a fridge and freezer for some cold beers and ice cream.

Room Tip: Rooms with a balcony, facing the chateaux.

Very good pension, just new renovated, fantastic view of the castle. Much space, good fittings and furnitures. The service is observing. It is calm and silent. The whole region and this guest house are highly recommendable. The visit of the very nice and well furnished castle is a MUST. It is impressive.
