“Good location, poor rooms”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

I didn't except much and the hotel didn't offer any great surprises. The public parts of the hotel, like the facade, the lobby and the stairway (there was no elevator in the hotel, at least I didn't see one...) were actually quite nice, even a bit precious, but the room itself was a far cry from that. Height of the room was certainly sufficient, but otherwise everything was old or of low quality (like the tv, which had only few channels with blurred image). Balcony was nice but small, and the ramshackle handrail raised concerns about its safety. The bathroom was adequate, but incondite wall was already losing some of its tiles and the tub was uneven. I think the room was also missing air conditioning, but fortunately it wasn't that hot outside.

The breakfast, which was included in the price, wasn't really worth it. I have eaten such Soviet style breakfasts mainly in Russia (and Belarus). They also said that it was served between 7-10 am, but already after 09:30 some food was out of stock (for example, one morning there was no more coffee at that time, untill they finally brought some more after long waiting).

On the positive side, the staff at the reception was friendly and the location of the hotel is great. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants just around the corner. I would say that the hotel sits just in the center of the city.

It was quite cheap, also, so perhaps you can give it a chance...

I had a lovely stay at Hotel Metropolis. Check-in was fine, the staff friendly and I was given an "In Your Pocket" guide which I found very helpful.

My room was great, decorated nicely with a wonderful renovated bathroom. Just what I needed after 33 hours in transit!

The breakfast was absolutely fine, I can't work out what people have a problem with. Sure, it's not five-star quality, but this isn't a five-star hotel (and doesn't advertise itself as one). There's a selection of salads, cereal, hot food and toast. There's also juice, tea and coffee. It's more than ample to fill your stomach, and certainly one of the most extensive spreads I've had for the price.

I found my room to be very quiet, despite it overlooking the street. I asked the receptionist if I could move if I found it noisy, and she very graciously said that I could. I didn't have a problem with it, though, and the door leading to the small balcony was double glazed.

If I was ever in Kaunas again, I would definitely stay here again. Its value is totally unbeatable.

I stayed here in a single room for 3 nights and was very satisfied. The room was newly renovated and neat. The room was big enough with shower room of a very good size. The only downside was that you could hear people talking in the corridor but that didn't bother me much. The staff at the hotel was very friendly and helpful. For the breakfast I would advice you to go quite early as mentioned in the other reviews. The location - just off the main pedestrian street with shops and restaurants - couldn't have been better. Also the nearest airport bus stop was very close. Overall the stay was of very good value and can be highly recommended.

Not a very modern hotel, our room and hallway could do with a big makeover. Breakfast wasn't very good. The staff weren't very knowledgeable with their reasoning when they declined to accept my major credit card.

The location is perfect which is the only good thing this hotel has going for it.

Room Tip: Choose one with a balcony. Just be prepared for the noise coming from the lively night life.
