“With a little effort this place can get full marks”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

The B&B has an ideal location to explore the Old Town.
It is cozy and quiet, my room on the street was soundproof enough to allow a good sleep.

Toilet was fine with a shower, but no window and a NON working extractor.
The towels were of the same softness of sandpaper. 2 shampoo samples were provided and shower gel only upon request. To remark as well that floors were not so clean.

At night there was no one to answer incoming calls and faxes so I had to get up to answer call/FAX. Not really pleasant if you are meant to rest. Other amenities in the room include a fridge and a tv.

Breakfast is good with a variety of items: including milk, fruit juices, eggs, cereals, jams, bread and fruit yoghurts.

The Astra B&B could fare much higher in terms of price/quality with few improvements.

In Astra is situated on the first floor of a larger building, which means you have to climb some stairs (with your suitcase) to reach it. The girl at reception was pretty clueless and hours after we checked in with her, I received a text message saying that we had not checked in yet.... Anyway, the room was very large, with a desk and small fridge and looked decent enough, although the shower in the bathroom was rather filthy with some mould in the corners. Breakfast was simple but enough, with bread that could be toasted, cereals, milk and jam. Because the kitchen was accessible all day, you could get coffee and tea during the day or at night if you wanted to. The location was not as central as we would have liked, but at walking distance from the old town. I have to say that the b&b felt more like an apartment, because there was no staff there most of the day and evening, only one or two hours, and the girl at reception could not offer any information and was not particularly welcoming. If you don't expect a cosy and charming b&b, then this is a good location for you for a city trip.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back, so you don't hear any noise from the road.

Pleasantly surprised by the In Astra.
Lovely room that would shame some hotels. Room service costs extra but the B&B is such great value anyway.
Convienant location, simple but adequate breakfast and lovely staff. I loved Vilnius, will definately return and will stay at the In Astra.

Premises very fresh, new and modern and a very convenient and comfortable place for a short stay. The breakfast is standar euro-fare but there's plenty of it.

On the down side, the staff are surly and will glance away sooner than greet you, though that is the general standard of social skills in Lithuania Rooms are not serviced, even after several days (so that means using the same towels and not getting a top up of toilet paper). I found the mattress a bit thin and boney and so had a restless nights.

On balance, a good value option if you don't expect a friendly smile!

Stayed January 2008
