As many have already stated, this hotel's location is excellent. Not only close to Old Towns's main street but also a short walk away from the "Republic of Uzupis", the arts-centered community. The walk to Pillies Gatve was quite interesting as it took us via Literatu Gatve, a narrow street with an outdoor art gallery.
We were there in early June as part of an OAT tour and, while our group overlapped with another one on some days, it did not seem to be too crowded,
Our room was quite spacious and bright. The dark bedspreads were not to our liking but that's not a big deal (see photos). Even though it was above the restaurant, we had no issues with noise. One night we did hear some bumping and people running around for a short while but it was not related to the restaurant.
The staff was friendly, for the most part, especially the man who helped us with the luggage.
We arrived one night ahead of our group and had requested airport pick-up, as our tour company would not provide transfers because we had made our own arrangements. It turns out that both (the hotel and the tour co.) sent a driver to pick us up and the tour's driver insisted on driving us. The hotel receptionist was not too happy when she found out because, apparently, they had already paid their driver, so we offered to pay for it anyway. In the end, they did not charge us for the pick up, which was very decent of them.
Now, the not-so-good parts:
-The front desk would not exchange money for us (some hotels have done this!), and would not even break large Lita bills!
-No hotel directory in room nor info on hotel services. Had to walk to Reception if we wanted to talk the them or ask questions
-No clock, wake-up service
- The breakfast area is quite cramped and did not have a good traffic flow as the "buffet" was only one "line/side" and it ended in a wall, so you had to squeeze between diners and tables.
Also, the boiled eggs were always refrigerator-cold (with one exception).
However, Loved the espresso/capucino machine at breakfast!
- The meeting room decor was blah! While trying to be modern, it looked unfinished..The carpet design made it look as if it was dirty (not saying it was!)
Overall, we liked this hotel and would recommend it.
