Amy Adejokun Section editor

Very well located, on the main road through the historic district of Vilnius; a historical building, most of the rooms overlook the old town, one of which is a new, round-shaped suite; a restaurant that absolutely must be tried, particularly in the summer, when the tables are put outside. The Europa Royale is a good choice of accommodation, even if the soundproofing is not up to the standards of a contemporary building.

    Location 9.27 /10

    On Auros Vartu 6, the main road of the Old Town of Vilnius, a stone's throw away from the Aurore gate.
    Vilnius Airport is 4 mi away. Allow 15 to 20 minutes for transfers.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    The higher the floor, the clearer the view from the rooms. So if possible, stay on the 4th floor (there is a lift). Otherwise, ask for a room overlooking the street, because those facing the courtyard overlook the car park in the same space. As the hotel only has 39 rooms, book in advance, particularly if you would like the round suite or one of the rooms with a balcony. Regarding the surface area, the standard rooms measure around 194 sq ft. The higher categories are a bit more spacious (but not always). Regarding the fittings, the style of furnishing is classical and refined: varnished wood, walls left white or covered in pale wallpaper, fitted carpet (more often than not). The equipment is identical in the various categories, apart from the bathrobes (not included in the standard rooms). There is a minibar, safe (for a fee), air conditioning, telephone and television. The bathrooms have a bath (apart from some of the smaller ones, which have a shower instead), a hair-dryer, and Europa hospitality products (40 ml). Let's be fair as regards soundproofing in the rooms: this is a historical building, and the thin partitions do allow noise to filter through. Ask for a room at the end of a corridor (and on the top floor), to keep this inconvenience to a minimum.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The Europa Royale opened in a historic building in 2001. The neo-Byzantine style of the façade dates from the 19th century, and the vaulted rooms between the ground floor and the basement belonged to an old 16th century convent. Reception, which is in the entrance hall, has a varnished wood counter. The lounge areas are through the door to one side: they are fitted out with furniture of a classic style, padded armchairs and sofas, coloured wallpaper and decorated with stylishly composed paintings. This also leads to the wine bar and vaulted dining room. Don't look for a gym or well-being centre (as there isn't one). On the other hand, you can ask for the "fitness in your room" service (free). You will be provided with a rowing machine or exercise bike alongside your bed.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    This is the hotel's strong point, and one of the reasons for jotting down its name in your list of addresses for lunch (or dinner), even if you are staying elsewhere. Whether eating inside (the dining room has a vaulted ceiling decorated with brick intersections) or outside (wooden tables and benches in a flower-filled courtyard), the Medininkai setting is typical. So is the menu. In terms of Lithuanian cuisine, you can try the "rissole jurate" - meatballs served with sautéd potatoes, a roast with a mushroom sauce, or potato and courgette pancakes with smoked salmon. Order a local beer to wash it down. Enjoy your meal! For those who prefer light meals, the restaurant also offers mixed salads, soups, and grilled food. Everything is well prepared and served by friendly staff. You will probably want to come at least twice, to eat outside (in the summer) and inside! In the morning, breakfast is taken as a hot and cold buffet (coffee is served at the table).

    To know

    The hotel's restaurant, the Medininkai, is well-known, and with good reason. It is a must (whether you are staying at the hotel or not) at any time of year; in the summer the courtyard is arranged as a "beer garden" with wooden tables and benches, and in winter guests eat in the vaulted 16th century room dining. There is a wine bar next door.
    Accommodation advice
    The hotel's most romantic room is definitely the round suite: it is circular in shape, and has a round bed and a 180° floor-to-ceiling bay window. From here, you can see a large part of the Old Town of Vilnius. Another romantic possibility are the rooms with a balcony overlooking Auros Vartu street. Otherwise, take note one third of the standard rooms overlook a courtyard that has been turned into a car park. It is a pity to have to stay in one of these, given the hotel's location at the heart of the historic centre.

      This is one of the most appealing hotels in the historical centre of Vilnius. It has few bedrooms but offers high-quality facilities and service, a pleasant layout (with a covered winter garden) at any time of the year, relaxation facilities and a very good à la carte restaurant... You are advised to visit the Stikliai before everyone else does - you won't go wrong and it won't cost the earth: part of the Relais et Châteaux chain of hotels, it has a local feel and is full of charm.

      A central location, a historical building, a fine setting in the Old Town of Vilnius... The Radisson SAS, along with several other hotels in the Lithuanian capital, offers all of the above. So why stay here instead of somewhere else? To swim - but of course - in the swimming pool (or lounge in the whirlpool bath) for no extra charge. To enjoy a generous breakfast after sleeping (preferably) in one of the superior rooms or suites, as the standard rooms and their bathrooms are not very spacious.

      If you like books, non-standardised bedrooms, warm atmospheres, wooden flooring and wood panelling, the Shakespeare Hotel is the place for you. Located in Vilnius Old Town, surrounded by old buildings... The English-style interior decor is not very local, but it is typical: enthusiasts take note!

      A beautiful hotel to keep in mind for its bedrooms and location - in the heart of historic Vilnius. All of the old city is accessible on foot from the hotel. It is cosy, with decoration typical of the area, especially on ground level and underground, but make sure that you do choose a room according to your taste. Note that you will be charged extra to go to the gym: take it or leave it, depending on your budget and your holidaying habits.

      • Location 8.48

      This is an address for those with an "average budget" (as this is no youth hostel), very well situated for discovering the historical centre of Vilnius on foot, adapted for families or groups of friends, and meticulously well kept; but with simple comforts and ancient corridors resonating at the slightest noise. Recommended for a night or two, and to those who have nothing against old convents.

The Ramada is a good choice if you wish to enjoy the quality of service offered by a hotel chain while staying in a unique setting.
