“Fantastic location and very good value”
Reviewed November 4, 2011

The adage you get what you pay for is self evident here, spartan rooms in a lovely old building in the old town for very reasonable rates. The cheaper price however compromises a few things like onsite restaurant and some of the room comforts. However the friendly staff and location soon make these things irrelevant. The only downside was the heating in the room was (counter to the rest of Europe) not quite hot enough. If you are in Vilnius for the town and not a 5 star hotel experience then I would reccomend Domus Maria.

The rooms are a little grim, especially on the top floor. Bordering on spartan.

That said, there are many advantages in staying here:
Location - fantastic, couldn't be better: within short walking distance from the train station with trains to the airport, and close to all main attractions
Cleanliness - absolutely spotless
Great breakfast - particularly generous for hostels in this price category
Friendly staff - every question was answered at length, in detail and with a smile
Good value - considering all of the above, it is fairly priced

Highly recommended!

The location was perfect and close to all the major sites, resturants, bars and a short walk to the bus and train station. The rooms were nicely decorated and very clean with an excellent shower. Breakfast was very good, fresh and with plenty of choice. The staff were helpfull, professional and polite. Highly recommended.

Great place in a top location, very well kept place that still has the feel of an old convent but with lots of room and modern fittings. Very good service and good value. Best of all if you come by car: they offer free parking in the city center!!

Domus Maria is a comfortable and mildly characterful residence situated next to the Gates of Dawn - so convenient for the old city, railway station and airport buses (for both Vilnius and Kaunas). It is basically quiet - not totally isolated from the noises of the city, but you are more likely to hear singing from the nearby church than traffic, and despite being here over a summer weekend with window fully open there was no noise from late-night revellers. Rooms are however not that well sound-proofed.

The accommodation is simply and adequately furnished, clean and functional; I couldn't think of anything else I would want, except maybe a room safe or a bath. I had a twin room for single use on the top floor, big enough for one but maybe a squeeze for two. My only minor complaint was that the bed-mattress was a single unit, so no way to tuck in sheets etc. Internet connection is wired broadband, so if you have a computer bring an ethernet cable.

This place used to be a monastery and so is designed with long halls. My room was nice and large with a good bathroom (the facilities were separate from the shower). It was spotless. The wifi was good and breakfast, served in a very cool room, was generous. The people at the front desk were also very helpful. Even though it was hot out, my room was cool and quiet (except when the church bells ring during the day). The building is only three stories high but it does have a modern elevator for the mobility impaired.

Domus Maria also has a great location: near the Gate of Dawn at the top of Old Town. This puts it within easy walking distance of the bus station. You could walk easily to one grocery store, Rimi, and many many restaurants. It was about a fifteen minute walk to the Cathedral.

Final cool thing: near the reception desk there is a display of souvenirs. Buy them here! They're a deal. A t-shirt in one of the stores on the main street cost 50 litas; Domus Maria sold the same shirt for 20. Score!

Room Tip: Apparently some of the outside-facing rooms on the third floor have good views.
