3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

I stayed 3 nights at the Congress Hotel, Vilnius in June 2012. The (twin) bedroom was average with all usual amenities and the bed comfortable. The breakfast contained some Lithuanian delicacies, but was not for me unfortunately. The staff I came across were helpful and spoke English.

The hotel's location on the River Neris is good and around a 5 minute walk from the main sights, such as Vilnius cathedral and the old town.

The Hotel Congress is nice place in a great location for the main tourist sites of the city of Vilnius. The service was nice. When we asked for an extra pillow for each person, because the pillows are a bit thin, they happily obliged. The hotel also had a nice breakfast and arranged pick up from the airport for a small fee, which was very helpful as we arrived and departed at weird hours.

Room Tip: Ask for an extra pillow and a room with a view of the city.

We stayed 6 nights on the congress hotel in Vilnius. Our room was clean, good in size, air condition, free WiFi, a nice view to river and comfortable bed.
The location of the hotel is good, only 10-15 min walking to the cathedral square and to the heart of the old city. Almost everything in Vilnius is in walking distance from the hotel.
The staff was very helpful and friendly. The buffet breakfast was nice and very rich.This hotel was a very good choice.

Room Tip: A room with river view is better but it has more street noises. Ask for high floor.

The staff is great. The breakfast buffet large and satisfying. We had a junior suite which had a nice little living room, and a little balcony overlooking the river. The bathroom looked renovated, and had a nice tub. The hotel has new windows which, when closed, keep out the very loud traffic noise. Now the negatives. Outdated decor, weird, low bed which was rock hard, and a corner location with both streets very busy. Tons of buses and street cars. Since it was hot, it would have been nice to use the balcony or open the windows--way too noisy.
We chose this hotel because it was near the business district on the other side of the river, for my husband's conference, yet much closer to Old Town. The hotel is good for this purpose.

Room Tip: The higher the better. Also get the balcony room, and you can look at the river and the sunset.

I have been to Vilnius several times over the past few years and have stayed at the Congress Hotel. Great staff who are willing to go out of their way for you. A wonderful, first class restaurant with a enormous breakfast buffet. Just a few minutes walk to old town and located right on the river. A pleasant and quiet atmosphere in a great capital city.

Stayed there for 7 days for a conference.
On the good side: very usefull staff, filling breakfast (they even offer you a lunchbox if you checkout early), clean rooms, excellent location.
On the bad side: room was a bit small for the price (single - 60€/night), the bed and sheets were in poor shape (but clean though), airconditioning wasnt working (but it seemed to be a temporary problem on the first floor), breakfast quality wasn't that good.
In summary it is a fair option for your stay in Vilnius, although other hotels may offer a better service but possibly at a higher price or less convenient location.
