Some people might describe Kaunas as as an untidy city, but as far as I'm concerned it's a lovely little city and the location of the Ibis really allows you to explore the city and Lithuania as a whole. It's 5 minutes from the train station and next to the bus station. As a result, when you arrive from the airport and take bus number 29 (costing the equivalent of 50p), you'll be dropped off right outside the hotel (on the opposite side of the road).
We stepped inside the hotel and were made to feel welcome immediately. After the formalities we were offered a copy of the excellent 'In Your Pocket' guide and a city map. We'd already printed a copy of the guide in advance, but it was a nice touch. We had a room on the 2nd floor and we were very happy with it. More than big enough with enough wardrobe space for our 3 night stay. There was a flat screen TV and a good size bathroom. The shower cubicle was a good size with a powerful shower. No complaints at all. Free wi-fi accessible from the room (ask for codes from reception).
Breakfast was fine. Tea and coffee available, along with juice (although more like cordial), cereals, cold meats, cheese, salad, breads, white sausage, scrambled egg and yoghurt. Pain au chocolat and croissants part of the offering. We also had lunch at the hotel. It was good value and good quality. but you can eat for much less in the city centre.
As mentioned, the hotel is close to the bus and rail station. In terms of everything else, the Ibis is a few yards from a Maxima supermarket, 10 mins walk from the Acropolis shopping mall and 20 minutes walk from 'Liberty Avenue'. The Old Town is 30 minutes walk, but well worth the effort as you'll take in many different sights along the way.
I thoroughly recommend the Ibis in Kaunas. Great value, service and well located. Do not hesitate.
