Great experience overall: perfect location - heart of old town, very unique gorgeous interior with lots of attention to detail, polite and helpful staff, good breakfast menu, free wi-fi, parking, etc. Loved every single bit of it and will happily come back.

Spacious rooms in a great great location in Old Town, Vilnius. Breakfast is very good and I recommend the Eggs Lithuanian Style. The whole hotel is like coming back to the early 1900. It's well worth a visit.

The service was outstanding. Particular thanks to the wonderful young lady in charge of breakfast who didn't bat an eyelid when I requested a flat white - which was not on the menu - and made it exactly as requested. She catered to our every request. The peace and gorgeous Explorer Bar where we chose to have breakfast were much... More

Our family of 3 stayed in Shakespeare Hotel at the end of our trip to Finland and the Baltic Countries. The location could not be better. Few steps from the main pedestrian street and a walking distance to the other Vilnius attractions, with many restaurants, cafes and the main shopping area close by. I booked the transfer from the bus... More

Rooms are quite welcoming and reasonable in size, bed is comfortable but bathroom very small and poorly equipped. Reception is very small and quite uncomfortable if you are not alone, besides, staff is correct but quite cold. The biggest problem is in breakfast, they have a big mess with it. Staff does not know how to handle properly and, even... More

We were on a 3-week tour of the Baltic countries with a small-group tour company and stayed here 6 nights. Our room, "Milton", was in back and very quiet. The room was large and comfortable. What complaints we have - mattress, towels - don't detract from the positives. We arrived a day earlier than the group and had dinner at... More

A nice reception and welcome to this clean comfortable if not plushly furnished hotel. Really big room very comfortable and quiet overlooking a courtyard off a narrow cobbled street. Take a taxi as I am not sure I could find it again. Liked the city, the squares and splendid churches. Visit was too short, must go back.

Excellent small hotel in Old Town of Vilnius, convenient to most sites. Relatively quiet. Hotel "theme" is literature (which you would expect with a name like "Shakespeare"; rooms don't have numbers but names of famous authors or characters (I stayed in the Goethe room). Clean, excellent free Wi-Fi. Selection of books in each room. Breakfasts (included) are unusual, in that... More

Perfect, if you feel bit tired of chain hotels. Above all the hotel rooms give feeling of being guest of a friend. Wooden floors, warm interior, huge bed. It is located 200m from the main street, 500m from the main square, close but not noisy. Breakfast is à la carte, even with fresh juice. Would stay again.

My mother and I stayed here for out visit of Vilnius. The room was spacious, clean and homy. We also enjoyed the ala cart breakfast. I recommend this hotel if you are to stay in Vilnius. It's a charming hotel with great staff members that are friendly and helpful.
