“Ageing hotel from the late 90's, good location”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

Positives first: Very friendly, smiling and helpful staff. Very central location, quiet and convenient. Unfortunately, that's about it.

Room, although roomy had smell of old carpet and was generally shabby, with well-worn furniture and fittings. Not dirty or anything, but very well-used. Cheap toiletries, they should have went for economic wall-mounted bottles of shower gel/shampoo, like German hotels do - the cheap single-use satchels are just tacky and very inconvenient to use (try ripping one open with wet hands). Same for corridors, restaurant, etc...well too worn-out and tired.

As a budget hotel this could have been OK, but its not cheap...so it needs a major renovation and proper management company, like Best Western or something.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. It is centrally located and within walking distance to several attractions. It is reasonably priced and the room is fairly large. Unfortunately, the toiletries were of poor quality for a 4-star hotel and the type of toiletries provided seem to vary on a daily basis. The liquid soap came in a dispenser attached to the shower wall and the housekeeping staff did not even notice that it had run out for 2 consecutive days. When I called housekeeping in the evening on returning to the hotel, a staff came over and handed me 2 small bars of soap and said that they could only replenish the liquid soap the next day! The hotel is made up of several small buildings put together and getting from one section to the other can be quite challenging especially when you have heavy luggage with you. The floor levels vary for each section and you may find yourself having to change lifts before you arrive at a room that is located further from the lobby area.

We enjoyed our stay at the Artis Centrum in Vilnius during a weekend trip in September. The advantage of this hotel are its affordability, excellent location, good breakfast (included in the price) and the availability of the pool and small gym.

It’s in a grand old building in a very good part of town. Gives a good first impression. The hotel is well located in the middle of Vilnius. Gediminas Street, the Cathedral, shopping, museums and popular nightclubs are all within easy walking distance.

Nice large room. The bed was king size (two single beds pulled together). And there was a balcony with a great view. Perfect! However, the first room we were assigned was smaller and the twin or queen sized bed seemed too small. We asked to change rooms and they unhesitatingly gave us this room.

We really enjoyed the breakfast, partly because it was included. The buffet had everything (except an omelet bar). Eggs served scrambled or boiled. Salmon, herring, fresh breads, fresh fruit, yoghurt, decent coffee and tea and much more.

The pool and sauna facility is free to guests from 7-10 AM. The small gym had just enough weights and machines for a serious workout. If you’re a runner, you can run to and along the river and then have a sauna and swim when you get back.

To get to the hotel from the airport, just hop on bus 1. Leaves frequently and costs just 2 litas 50. It’s about a 15-20 minute ride. The bus takes you to the train/bus station in Vilnius. The hotel is about 1.5 km away so it is walkable from there. For a grand entrance into the city ask for directions to the Dawn Gates nearby and go through there. I think most people would want to take a bus from the station to get to the hotel though. Find “trolley bus” 1, 3 or 7. It’s about the sixth stop. A “trolley bus” is a bus connected to the electric wires overhead. You can also take the train from the airport but it seems to run just once an hour or so.

Every hotel has downsides, but it’s hard coming up with any for this place. I suppose the maids (who did a great job) could be a bit quieter out in the hallway.

Artis Centrum is not a five-star hotel, but it’s certainly four stars. Can’t give it less than a five because we enjoyed it so much and loved the location, affordability and breakfast so much.

Nice hotel, and very impressive lobby, nice and efficient personnel, ready to help any time. All the personnel at the reception speaks proper English.
Away from the main street but still at the old center very quiet.
Unfortunately due to busy schedule had no chance to try the fitness room and the pool.
Breakfast was nice but similar day after day.
The room was clean but a little old fashion with wallpapers at some places torn.

In general I will recommend.

We stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel is light, airy and aesthetically pleasing. The staff were extremely helpful and patient. Our room ,situated on the top floor, was spacious, interesting and full of character. The ensuite was very modern, clean and efficient. The air-conditioning was superb. The swimming pool was a reasonable size and definitely an asset. The breakfasts were excellent with a lot of choice. The location near the university is just a 5 minute walk from the old town. We found a small supermarket down the road and there were several good restaurants nearby.
