“Excellent hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

This hotel is absolutely excellent in every respect. I stayed there last weekend. It is ideally situated in the Old Town. The staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. The hotel is immaculate and the breakfasts were superb. If you're planning a trip to Vilnius I can highly recommmend the Shakespeare Hotel.

This hotel is like staying in an expensive antique shop, with famous writer themed bedrooms. Very friendly staff and an excellent a la carte breakfast. Perfectly situated just off the old towns main street and just in from the main Cathedral square which leads onto the main boulevard of the new town. Nice terrace to enjoy a quiet drink and soak up the afternoon sunshine. Our stay would have been perfect, had it not been for workmen on the roof of our room first thing in the mornings.

Room Tip: Get an upstairs room which will give a nice view over the rooftops

This hotel is a really cosy hotel , well situated in the old town. Location is ideal for walking around the city. Staff are really attentive and are only too happy to help if asked. It's great to escape from the usual "corporate" style hotels and find this homely wee gem. Lots of free car parking available. Would happily come back here if ever I return to Vilnius.

If you prefer good-quality boutique hotels to one of the international chains then the Shakespeare in Vilnius is for you.

I stayed two nights here in April 2015 on a business trip and would recommend it wholeheartedly. The staff were welcoming, attentive, proactive, and could not be faulted. The hotel itself - with it's literary theme - is delightful. Rarely does one have a bookshelf full of 'readable' books in one's bedroom!

It was also a pleasure to have a 'real' breakfast in such lovely surroundings. A la carte rather than buffet, and served beautifully.

I would recommend the Shakespeare Hotel to anyone and will certainly stay there again on any subsequent trips to Lithuania.

I stay in around 20-30 hotels each year and if I could find one like the Shakespeare in every city I would be happy.

Hotel located inside the old city of Vilnius. Provide rooms in old historical style. If you want to feel the spirit of Shakespeare or other historical authors, this is your place.

The biggest difficulty in Shakespeare is to find your room. Why? Because of rooms have no numbers. But don't be worried, helpful guy in the reception will give you help, if necessary take your language and you in the room.

During this short one day trip I had room "Lord Byron". Single room with 100 cm bed in ground floor. The room with bathroom, with real bath. Room inside was made in old style. On the write desk you could this time found two apples, sometimes there has been other fruits.

Breakfast is served on table in nice restaurant. Available are juice, eggs prepared in different ways, omelet, boiled, Lithuanian style... whatever you want and of course different kind of coffees and tees. Kitchen can even make some specialities on your request. You can enjoy your morning in calm, cozy atmosphere! Only thing is, that reserve time for that, service will not be fast.

This is a great hotel
The hotel staff look after your every need, and the restaurant is top class. We ate there on our first night having only arrived at 8.00pm
The rooms are named, and we had the Romeo and Juliet room with views over the two cathedrals at the back.
The rooms can be a little small, but made up by having a large bathroom with spa bath.
