I and a colleague have just returned from a two day break over the UK February half term and would readily recommend this hotel.
The double bed room/suite was rather unusual yet comfortable. A vast living area ,where an electrician with a seeming fetish for halogen lighting and multiple light switch configurations had clearly expressed his passion, with adjacent toilet and on a mezzanine level the bedroom featuring a on suite bathroom with masses of rather tasteful marble flooring and tiling (the former being heated). Given the temperature outside (minus 20-25) the room was thankfully warm. The mini bar was, I suppose by Lithuanian standards, a little steep but 10 litas for a largish beer approximates to £2.50 which I don't think is horrendous.
I thought the staff were great, given the stories you hear of a sometimes soviet era attitude to paying guests in some of the cities hotels. In particular the reception staff and the barman in the restaurant downstairs were both not only helpfulness itself but also quite willing to engage in a conversation about Lithuanian history and culture after we returned from a day at the cities museums and churches.
The breakfast was reasonable but then I like meat fish and cheese to start the day, rather than the rather insipid western continental breakfast. We did not dine in the El Gaucho Argentinean restaurant so I cannot comment; it seemed, given its location in former cellars, a little too stygian for my liking.
Location is great for the fine classical RC Cathedral, Castle Hill and a range of state museums. In all a very pleasant experience which complimented my first trip to Vilnius. I would return and use the hotel again.
