“nothing special”
Reviewed September 14, 2011

I was with my friend there last Summer 2011, and spent there only 1 night and that was enough,
Rooms are very small !! we had an economy room which is with toilet but without shower. There is 1 shower for 5 rooms.Toile has not good ventilation system. Shower room wasnt so clean there.
Location of the hotel is OK, close to train and bus station as well as Old Town...but you must be VERY carefull walking there at the evening or late night. Reception desk workers are quiet plesant. You can book this hotel with the price up to15-20 euros....., more than that is a waste of money.

Room Tip: do not take a fron rooms, there is a busy street and can be noisy.

Our bags where opened while we were in the city. One creditcard diseapperd. Staff try to take higher price then promised. They gave up after a long discussion. At check out they forced us to pay the room once more claiming we didnt pay bye check in. Our rooms ended up costing 120 euro each night. This is a horrible hotel run bye people whos mentality is to press every single euro out of their customers. The place should have been shut down. The hotel destroyed our holday in Vilnius. We will never come back again.

Tucked in right around the corner from the bus station and very very close to the old city, this location made a good base for quick trips to Kernave, Trakai and Kaunas. Nice little breakfast served free downstairs, rooms are big and spacious, though not the cleanest I've seen. Nothing bad at tall though for an independent traveler. Great value nonetheless.

Management and Staff

On arrival the receptionist was quite friendly and treated us correct. The check in went without problems. Payment by card was possible and went correct and without problems. We were allways received correct and friendly by the reception staff.

The people who have to take care of the breakfast and the cleaning of the bedroom made some mistakes though. For example they once forgot to "clean" the room and make up the bed they also forgot to change the towels that day, they simply didn't even enter the room. In general, they didn't clean the room at all though, during the 6 days we stayed. Another day they forgot to put toilet paper. Both inconvenient situations got solved though with simply reporting the problem to the receptionist.

The lady "taking care" of the breakfast was simply impolite and seemed as if she prefered not to be there working. If I'm honest I'd have prefered her not to be there either, it'd probably have improved both her and my situation.

The last day we stayed another lady was in charge of the breakfast, she was even worse. She put us together with some impolite and bad mannered people on one table, because there was no more space in the breakfastroom.

Location

The location of the hotel is convenient, it's close to the bus - and railway station and close to the old town. You can reach the busstation as well the railwaystation in just a 5 minutes walk. The center of old town can also be reached in just 5 minutes by foot. Around the corner of the hotel there's a supermarket named "Maxima". But that's the only positive about the location of the hotel, because it's located in a typical environment for station neighbourhood. It's simply ugly around, full of weird people, making noise, scolding each other. Occasionaly you find a drunk guy or a prostitute-like girl around.

Bedrooms

The room we stayed in had that typical Sovjet Army Base look, I have no other way to describe the looks with dark-grey (and not so clean) carpet, brown curtains, pale yellow walls and dark sky blue doors. The bed was okay to sleep in, there was a desk and chair, a closet and a tv, wich I didn't turn on. The bathroom urgently needed to be cleaned thoroughly, mainly the shower. The shower had a huge stain. On the borders it was full of black stuff which suspiciously much looked like mushroom.

Food

The breakfast was just fine, nothing special, but eatable. There were two kinds of bread (dark and light) toasts (eventhough the last day toasts were not even offered), some kind of typical sausage, cheese, cucumber, jam, butter, juice, yogurt, and the choise between tea and instant coffee. It's not the greatest breakfast ever, but it could have been worse.

Services

The hotel doesn't have internet access. When we asked for advise about where we could print our boarding passes, they sent us to a partner hotel in the neighbourhood, though we prefered to go to an internet cafe.

Conclusion

The hotel was really cheap, but despite the price we got really disappointed about the hygiene of the room. Cleanliness doesn't have to be necessarily expensive, so you can run a budget hotel and still have it clean.

Also the rude staff of the breakfastroom was something that was not a positive experience. If they don't like to be there, they'd better look for another job and do the guests the favor of having a friendly person around in the morning.

The hotel has about 25 rooms and still the breakfastroom has only 3 tables with 4 chairs each, because of that you get sometimes put with total strangers. All this makes that I see this "Two Star Hotel" more like a hostel with private bathroom, it'd be a more correct description of what it is.

Title says it all. Nothing taken, but our bags were certainly searched through when we weren't there. Area around isn't great.

Vilnius is worth a visit.

After staying at Mikotel for one night we checked out.The place is backyard of Vilnius
were alcoholics and junkies are hanging around near the shabby trainstation.The workers at Mikotel dont care about you as a guest and look at you as something that are waisting their time.The bed are covered with 20 years old blankets and the whole room stinks like some old granma been living there all here life. Also be aware when chcking in to ask for the reciep that you paid for the room. At Mikotel they try to charge you for the room that you already paid for at check out day. We had a awful fight with the receptionist, a black haired woman, to not pay one extra time. The other couple standing beside us at the reception also had same kind of discussion with the woman behind the desk. COINCIDENCE??? NO!!!! Find some other hotel in Vilnius than Mikotel and your trip will be awasome.

Firs of all, I'd like to say that Mikotel has a great location! It's near to central railway station and not so far (10 minutes) from historical part of town. Breakfast wasn't luxurious, but enough not to feel yourself hungry. Room was clean! I recommend to stay there for 1-2 nights.
