Taxi-man quoted 90Lts from Airport to Artis Centrum Hotel but another brought 4 of us for 50Lts - which is what it should be!
Hotel perfectly situated for walk-touring the city - opposite the Presidential Palace; a landmark point of contact for us. Db.-rooms were large; 6-foot beds + bathrooms perfect. Restricted times for Spa use. Service excellent throughout with english-speaking staff @ front-desk who were very helpful.
There a number of good food restaurants & bars a nice walking distance from the hotel. Watch out for 'Linen shops' which sell lovely table-clothes + dresses!
Visit the 'Museum of Genocide Victims' in the city & Trakai Castle; 27 km from the city. Trains & buses go to the castle very regularly but best to go when season is open after May, otherwise too much snow.
