Decided to spend a few days in Kaunas recently and had a terrific time! Arrived late at night so had pre booked a taxi, with the help of the hotel, beforehand. The taxi man dropped us off, but the door isn't so obvious so it took us a few minutes to find it!!! We checked in with ease and instantly loved our room! Lovely and spacious. All amenities there that you would need. We went for a wander and although Kaunas was very quiet at that time of night, we did find a late bar where we had a very lovely glass of wine to relax after our journey! This hotel is perfectly situated between the Old and the New town. We could walk everywhere! Kaunas felt very safe.
Breakfast at the hotel is Buffet style and offers quite a wide choice. I opted for fruit, yogurt and their own bread which they make fresh in the hotel every day. They have a great coffee machine also. They had a huge array of cheeses and cold vegetables as well as pastries. Something for everyone. The breakfast room opened into a conservatory which was lovely and bright to eat in. The staff were so friendly and so helpful every time we enquired about somewhere.
We really enjoyed discovering Kaunas! There are lots of beautiful Churches to see. (We even got to enjoy a fabulous Choral concert accompanied by orchestra in one of them) , a fantastic Art Gallery, great shopping centre, gorgeous local crafts and a wonderful pedestrianised Main Street with lots of coffee shops to take a break in! The food and drink in Kaunas was an absolute highlight of the trip. Excellent quality food at very reasonable prices.
I would highly recommend Kaunas for a City break. You won't be disappointed. (We took a train to Vilnius one day too-def worth a visit) For convenience stay in this hotel. It's in a perfect location and was lovely, cozy and warm to come back to after a day out in the cold Lithuanian weather! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Thanks for great holiday! less
