“Super central, friendly staff, small rooms”
Reviewed April 8, 2010

Everything everyone else said is true. The best part is that the hotel is very centrally located and staff is very friendly. The breakfast buffet has improved since some of the complaints and is now also in the bar. Some of the rooms are a bit on the small side but I guess that's the price you pay for a historical location.

We stayed at the Hotel in March for six nights. We really enjoyed both the City and the Hotel.

Hotel is in a great location, helpful staff, lots of restaurants nearby, attraction close too. Excellent Value for money.

We ate at a number of Restaurants our favourite being Bistro 18 (Stikliu Gatve (Street)), we also enjoyed cakes at the nearby bakery. If you enjoy chocolate AJ Sokoladas at the bottom of Pilies Gatve is very good for a coffee or tea and a few treats.
Vilnius is very reasonable cost wise for eating out and visiting museums etc. We visited most of the tourist things but especially enjoyed going out to the nearby town of Trakai to visit the Castle and the lakes; we went by public bus No 29 and came back by train - very easy to use. The KGB museum in Vilnius very interesting but sobering!

We really enjoyed Vilnius and would put it on out top three European destinations.

I booked a 4 day trip to Vilnius and was meant to be staying at the Hotel Tilto from the 4-7 March having researched it on tripadvisor in January. Unfortunately having navigated our way on to a local bus from the airport and then through the snow to the hotel, we were advised by a friendly young female that she had good news! The good news was that we were being moved as apparently the heating had stopped working. It was very warm in the foyer which kind of led me to believe that they had in fact overbooked. That said she arranged for a taxi to collect us free of charge within 10 minutes of arriving, printed off a booking receipt and duly sent us to the Reval Hotel Lietuva, where we had a very enjoyable stay.

My girlfriend and I booked this hotel via Expedia and paid just over £60 for 2 nights including breakfast buffet, which we thought was fantastic value.
Yes, as other Tripadvisor members have mentioned the hotel is centrally located and close to the main cathedral and clock tower, however, so are many other hotels in Vilnius, so this should not be its main selling point.
The hotel's plus points are its friendly staff, quiet location, and clean, modern rooms with a big shower and comfortable bed. The exposed brick wall decor also adds a nice, unique touch.
Where the hotel fails big time is in its presentation of breakfast. This is by far the worst aspect and really needs to be improved.
First of all, the breakfast room is tiny with just 4 tables so there is no sense of privacy at all.
Secondly, the quality of the items on display ranges from poor to mediocre. It seems very budget-orientated. The hot sausages, pancakes and porridge were passable but the bread was stale and of poor quality. We also tried cold meats and cheese which were OK as were coffee and juices.
Thirdly, some of the Lithuanian food such as potato pancakes, herrings and beetroot salad are not breakfast items and should be served at lunch, as my Lithuanian girlfriend confirmed. So it seems strange that they would be served at breakfast time. There were other unusual foods like ricecakes and nuts on the table.
The girls at reception were all really friendly and helpful and it IS a nice hotel, but I have stayed in better 3*s which have not been as highly rated on here as this one so it was a little dissapointing as my expectations were high.
A few more observations:
The room did not have a fridge with drinks & snacks and the kitchen had closed before its 9pm time as we tried to unsuccesfully order room service one evening.
The hotel has a sauna and swimming pool but these were very expensive, which is a shame as otherwise we would have tried using them.
To recap, we recommend Tilto Hotel as an affordable stay, but we are certain that there are better (and pricier) hotels to stay in the capital.

I stayed in this Hotel for a weekend in february. It is located withing walking distance of all the sights, great restaurants and bars but quiet enough to get a great nights sleep. I was in room 201 a deluxe room, it was huge must be 50 square meters with a seperate sitting area and comfortable bed nicely decorated and furnished. The room was spotless and had free wifi. It is the best boutique hotel i have stayed in.
not only is it a great hotel but the staff are fantastic,knowledgable about the area and helpful in booking anything you need. I left a large sum of cash behind in my room and the staff there made sure that it was returned safely. Thanks Inga and Simona for making a great holiday!
