Boasting a prime spot close to the Church of St Anne, this hotel offers perhaps the smallest and most inexpensive
rooms in the Old Town. However, it is a peaceful spot to spend a night. The rooms are well equipped, with refrig-
erator, tea- and coffee-making facilities and phone. Some rooms have en suite bathrooms. http://www.litinterp.com

A classy guesthouse close to Vilnius Cathedral (see pp48–9), Dvaras means “manor house”. However, the interiors
resemble a richly designed country cottage, with wooden floors, thick carpets and elegant furnishings. Excellent
meals are served in a cosy but little-visited cellar restaurant. http://www.dvaras.lt

Each plush room here is individually decorated in luscious colours. French designer Anne Toulous chose soft, noise-
absorbing carpets for the rooms and corridors and unique frescoes, wall paintings, original 16th-century beamed
ceilings and Gothic vaults add to the charm. Two suites even have a hammam and Jacuzzi. http://www.narutis.com

Perhaps the closest thing to a resort hotel on the Curonian Spit (see pp62–3), Ąžuolynas, directly facing the lagoon,
has a swimming pool and waterslide for families to enjoy. It also has a Turkish bath, tennis court and fitness centre.

Where to Stay in Lithuania

Hotels in Lithuania share a classification code with

Scandinavian countries, which has helped to improve
standards throughout the industry. However, it is
advisable to run a check on the establishment, as some
smaller hotels, particularly those converted from Soviet-
era buildings, may not live up to expectations.

Price categories are for a standard double
room per night in high season, including
tax and service charges. Breakfast is
included, unless otherwise specified.
