I chose Hotel Tilto on hostelbookers.com, of all places as it was the furtherest thing from a hostel. It was lovely. Small but modern and comfortable rooms. Good sized bathrooms. There is a lift - great for when those bags have just somehow got weightier. The breakfast was good - don't expect eggs every morning though - you'll get small sausages, pasta, mixed vegetables but also good coffee, croissants, that lovely dark bread, fruit and meat and cheese.
Tilto is virtually at the backdoor of the main thoroughfare Gediminas Avenue and is walking distance to Vilnius Cathedral which is a good landmark.
For those who jog - it is close to the river which has multiple bridges with tracks both sides - a nice run with the stairs offering some good intervals.
The only issue - I booked a taxi through the hotel for my ride to the airport and had asked the previous evening as to cost. I was told 30-40 Lit and so budgeted for that amount. On the way to the airport the next day, and noticed the driver hadn't put the meter on. I asked and was told that the taxi company had a contract with the hotel [which I don't believe was the case] and the ride was base price of 65 Lit. Obviously I didn't have this amount, and said I only had 40 Lit. He then said "ohh, 65 Lit was for multiple people, 40 Lit was for single people" - I've emailed the hotel about this rort but haven't heard anything. When booking the taxi, ensure that the hotel insists on the meter to be used.
