“Perfect location and value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

Kaunas is a terrific place to visit, particularly in January as you can extend the Christmas feel-good feeling. Lithuanian Christmas day (Russian orthodox) is 7 January, so everywhere still has decorations up until the end of the month. There’s also a virtual guarantee of there being snow on the ground to embellish the festive sensation. Leave plenty of space in your luggage as all the shops have January sales; you can pick up some excellent bargains from known high-street brands, as well as unusual or unique items of clothing or articles for your home.

The Amberton Cozy is a perfect base. It’s right in the middle of the old town, with loads of good cafes, bars & restaurants in the neighbourhood. You can get a meal for two for less than £10, with a large beer typically £1, glass of wine £1.50. The main shopping street and mall (Akropolis) are a very pleasant 15 minute walk away, although you’re sure to take longer stopping to take-in the abundance of interesting things to see on the way.

Rooms in the hotel are a decent size and well maintained. We actually used 2 in our 3 day stay. The first room we were given was on the top floor (4th), with slanting ceilings and a nice view. However, the initial impression of a room full of character gave way after bashing heads on the ceiling a few times and being woken up in the night by the smell of somebody smoking. We discovered later that there are smoking rooms on that floor. If you smoke and/or are under 5ft 6in tall, the 4th floor is probably OK. When we asked about the smoking at reception, they apologised & moved us to a 2nd floor room (that turned out to be larger and had a high ceiling!). There’s no lift; but the stairs are not steep and are very wide. Only likely to be a problem for people with walking difficulties. We cant comment on the breakfast as we chose to eat out.

Overall, a strong recommendation for a weekend break. Really good value, helpful staff and an unbeatable location.

We stayed there on 2 separate occasions and it was lovely both times. Rooms are spacious and well maintained- and definitely good value for money!
The breakfast was also reasonable. I will definitely go back and would be happy to recommend! It may be worth asking for a room downstairs if you're elderly or of reduced mobility, as there's no lift.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 4th floor are great, but not suitable for very tall people or for elderly- there's...

I really enjoyed the hotel and the staff. The room was big, nice and well equipped. I knew from a previous that the rooms on 4th floor are nice, so I had one there, and did not mind that there's not elevator. Some minor flaws (which did not disturb that much, but can be improved): the reception did not have some cream for shoes, they forgot to change a light bulb after a request (but 3 of four lamps were working, so no problem), in the bathroom there were 4 spiders (looks like the cleaning did not reach high on the walls).
Overall, very good choice, I will definitely book again here.
A special praise to the really gentle staff, both at the reception and in the breakfast bar.

I enjoyed my stay at Amberton Cozy in Kaunas. Is very central, in the middle of old city, so the district is very safe, something you must consider in this city. I also liked the quality of the hotel, specially considering that it didn't cost so much. Free Wifi included (it should be like this everywhere!) The only negative point is the breakfast but this is a general problem in the whole region. It seems like in all the Baltic States you can only have a salty breakfast with not much choice for sweet things and drinks. We western europeans are used to have croissants and things like this which in the Baltics are difficult to find.

We stayed here twice with a week between the stays. I have walking problems and since the hotel does not have an elevator, the receptionists both times have been able to give us a room on the first floor. The second time they even exchanged it with someone else that had not arrived yet.

The first time we arrived to that hotel (at about 16:30), the rooms have not been ready yet, although people had to check out at 12:00PM, they "did not have time to change and clean the rooms". That was a bit weird, and a 20 minute wait had fixed that. This gave us an idea of a lousy service, but it tended to disappear right away, as things like this may happen anytime.

The hotel is located right at the edge of the Old Town, you can walk into it in 2 minutes time. The Old Town itself is not that interesting, but maybe it is just to us, because Tallinn (our home town) has better and more interesting sights (but that's us :) ). The hotel building is not on a busy street and your sleep will not be disturbed unless there is a strong rain outside, hitting the metal windowsill.

The room was very clean, beds and sheets are spotless. Bathroom was very nice, however there was a smashed centipede on the bathroom shelf, also looked like it had been covered with lacquer, so it's been there for quite some time; must have been a local attraction :) The hotel soap has a specific smell to it, so it is better if you have some of your own. But tastes are all different, as you know.

The conditioner in our room was not working, but unless there is 30 degrees C outside - open the windows and you'll be fine. If it is hot outside - call for help with the conditioner - too hot!!

The hotel's restaurant is nothing to wish for, so is the breakfast. Juices are probably the ones out of a dry pack - the ones you have to add water to; water with lemon had no taste, so I'd recommend to go with coffee and like it. If you want to have a nice dinner - you may find plenty of restaurants on the Town Hall Square - just some couple of hundred meters from the hotel - really close and handy. The food is well cooked, the prices, however, could have been a bit lower. But if you find something you want to try - just go with it, you most probably will NOT be disappointed.

Hotel has real parking problems - not enough space and lots of locals are parking into two places, so you would probably need to ask the receptionist to find those geniuses and re-park the car normally.

Receptionists are quite nice and speak English and Russian (in case you're interested). So the next time we need to stay in Kaunas, we'll definitely choose this tested hotel, knowing what to expect and its location is just amazing for the price they charge you.

This hotel really blew us away For the price we paid for it, it was something totally amazing. The place has been newly renovated and everything is very up to date. The rooms have Flat Screen TV:s and are huge in size. Everything is clean and in good condition. The breakfast isn't anything special but it's better than nothing. There's no elevator on the property so climbing to the top floor with your luggage can be a problem. But the rooms on the top floor sure make up for the climb. The have a modern attic-like feel to them. The hotel is bang on in the city center and even offers parking! I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Kaunas!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor if you can manage the climb up to the fourth floor! The rooms are ve...

Well, it was cozy indeed. Small hotel, very close to the old town and the main square. Our room was on the last floor and there was no lift. My husband had to lug baggage up and down the narrow stairs. The room was quite clean, but there were some places (under the bed, in the shower cubicle etc.) that weren't as clean as it could be in a 4* hotel. Breakfast was rather strange - there was no fresh bread and it all reminded Polish holiday meal with herring and mayo-eggs, not really adequate for breakfast, rather lunch.
