“Clean average hotel in a superb location.”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

As someone who was born and raised in Vilnius, coming back with my fiancé for a visit, my main goal was to find a clean and inexpensive hotel in the city center for our 8 night stay. Neringa, while not the best hotel in the city, was a great choice for us.

While rooms are on a smaller side, they are clean and the bed was relatively comfy (although, they don’t just give you a single queen-sized comforter for your double room… instead you get two twin-sized comforters. Weird, I know). We had the room that was facing the inner courtyard and it was very quiet. While I know we had neighbors during our week-long stay and walls tend to be thin in Soviet era buildings, I almost never heard anything while in the room. I would imagine that the rooms facing Gedimino Avenue are noisier… since there are 2 restaurants right underneath the hotel.

Bathroom was also on a smaller side, but plenty of counter space for my toiletries. BUT, beware of slippery tub!! It sits high up and there is no rubbery coating in the tub, so for American travelers (although standard in Lithuania) that could be quite a shock. Hang on to something with both hands while climbing in and out of the tub. And if you are an older traveler, it might be just downright dangerous. But… they do have heated floors!!:) I mean, I’d rather have them spend money on putting rubber mats into the tub, but it is certainly very nice to step out of the shower on a warm floor (the switch is outside the bathroom). Towels MUST be upgraded… they are so rough and thin, that you get exfoliated every time you use one.

No AC in rooms and I’d be very careful staying here during summer months when it can get REALLY hot. Heating is controlled by the city… it gets turned on when the temperatures drop (around October) and turned off around March, even though it doesn’t get warm until May. The hotel does offer a portable heater, which works quite well and heats up the room rather fast.

Breakfast… If you have a choice, skip continental breakfast, unless it’s included in your room rate (just don’t pay extra for it). If breakfast is not included, you can still eat at the hotel from Neringa’s breakfast menu (do not pay 35 Litas for continental breakfast, it’s cheaper to order from the menu) or get out and explore other places. We found breakfast at Neringa to be just ok and overpriced, definitely catering to tourists as it has been for decades during Soviet occupation. The kithen over salts pretty much everything… but coffee here is very good. There is a good creperie just down the Gedimino Avenue; make a left after exiting the hotel and walk down the street until McDonalds. Once you pass it, you’ll see outside tables set up on your left next to a book store. They offer a million of different stuffed crepes, potato pancakes and other dishes, but the service is slow.

Reception staff was kind and helpful, and everyone we spoke to had very good English. I left Vilnius in 2000 and my Lithuanian is getting a bit rusty… so I used a combo of Lithuanian, Russian and English to communicate and they were very patient with me.

Location, location, LOCATION!!! If you are in Vilnius for a few days or a few weeks, you must stay close to the city center or old town. Hotels in Old town tend to be more expensive but just a short walk from Neringa. It’s really a prime location and the best way to explore Vilnius is, like most European cities, by foot. You can always catch a cab, which are relatively inexpensive in Vilnius, although it’s always cheaper to call one in than catching it on a street.

Overall and regardless of a few small annoyances I’ve mentioned above, we had a good stay in Neringa and I would stay there again for the price we paid (around $70/night).

Room Tip: Request a room overlooking the courtyard for a quiet stay.

A nice Hotel in the City centre. Walking distance to almost all attractions. The Hotel offers clean comfortable rooms and a very good Breakfast. Friendly Staff can help you with Taxi from and to the Airport at a reasonable price and to arrange Tours around the City. Our Special needs got prompt attention by the front desk. I will come back for sure

We stayed in the Neringa hotel in April 2012 for 4 nights. The rooms are good, large enogh with a good flat screen TV and clean including a mini bar and so. Only the bad room is not completely up to western European standards, for example the finishing of the bad tube was loose and it took minutes before there was hot water but that didn’t bother us.
The location is absolutely great, right in the middle of Vilnius with all major tourist attractions on an easy walking distance. Restaurants are as far as 5 meter from the hotel, a supermarket and ATM are 10 meters away and coffee bares are plenty available. The breakfast is good but every day the same is offered. A small hint for the hotel, cups of yoghurt, milk, vegetables and meet should be cooled.

The only thing we discourage is using the hotel taxi service. We used that because according to the hotel that would be cheaper then paying the taxi directly, but the opposite is truth. Traveling to the airport the taxi meter charged half of what we paid in the hotel.

Stayed two nights in a standard room in February 2012. The Neringa Hotel (formerly a Scandic Hotel) is located in the middle of Gedimino prospektas, the main commercial shopping street in the centre of Vilnius. This is a fantastic location, a short walk from anywhere in the Old town or modern business district across the river. The hotel and the rooms are a fairly basic standard, but clean and well maintained. Provides fantastic value compared to the Novotel Hotel located a few doors down the same road, which charges 2 - 3 times more.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on one of the higher floors to get a view and avoid any street level noise from Gedim...

Was extremely surprised when we walked in to the room-we were not in the typical shoebox-sized room we encounter on our European travels! Very comfortable with a desk and sitting area to start our jet-lagged morning with in-room coffee service. The grocery mart across the street had a nice assortment of fresh pastries, fruit and yogurt. The location is perfect for checking out Old Town. Will definitely stay here again!

I first stayed at this hotel some years ago when it was part of the Scandic chain. I must say that the hotel has seen better days and no improvements since then. The interior is still special - the breakfast restaurant boasts some Soviet style decorations and architecture as one the only places left in Vilnius.
Wifi was not really efficient - my iPad couldn't hold on to the signal, and in several areas there was no signal at all.
Be aware that the sauna and pool is a group only, for pay experience. They don't tell that on the website, and the price is quite steep.
Rooms were okay. We were six people going and used the junior suite as a conference room, which worked fine. Otherwise the rooms are quite plain and uninspiring. Bathrooms are fine. Breakfast offered many options from the East European cuisine, but as the "hot dishes" were cold and never replenished when emptied, you'll be better off going to a nearby cafe - there are many - than paying lots of money for the poor experience.

Liutkeviciute, Front Office Manager at Neringa Hotel, responded to this review, 16 March 2012
Dear Sir,

Thank you very much for your review!
Regarding our rooms - our hotel has been gradually refurbished since 2010: we have renovated our public areas, changed TV-sets, repainted all rooms and changed floor in bathrooms (they have heated floor now). More refurbishments will follow in the near future.
Thank you for your opinion about our restaurant. We would like to inform you that the interior of Neringa restaurant is listed among State Protected Monuments of Lithuanian Architecture. It cannot be changed – that would be against the law. Neringa restaurant is one of the most unique and authentic restaurants in Vilnius and we are very proud of having such restaurant at our hotel.
We would like to thank you for your comments regarding breakfast – they will help us to further improve our product and services. The information has been passed to restaurant manager and I am sure the restaurant staff will ensure the best quality of our breakfast.
Regarding fee for our sauna – as this sauna is quite small and adjusted for private use only we are charging a fee of 9 EUR per person per usage – this price covers sauna heating costs, nothing more (is it really quite steep?). We have entered information about fee for sauna on our webpage in order to avoid misunderstandings in the future.


With best regards,

Edita Liutkeviciute
Front office manager

My girlfreind and I stayed at this great hotel for one night in early february during the very cold period. We booked a superior room at this hotel by phoning the reception. Since we would first arrive in the evening the receptionist agreed to a discount and later checkout the next day. We paid 74 euro, which was cheaper than on the various booking sites.
The room is very nice, big and comfy bed, nice bathroom and nothing to complain about.
Reason for giving only 4 stars was that the breakfast wasn't all that great compared to what we have had other places. There was plenty to choose from in the buffet, but the quality wasn't great.
But overall a recommendable hotel due to the nice rooms and good service.
