Reviewed 31 August 2012

I have a very bad experience with this hotel! They near ruined my weekend!
Booked a room there for the night about 2 weeks before the journey and received a confirmation via email.
But when we get to Vilnius, they said that there was overbooking, so we have to go to some apartment instead of hotel Without breakfast and any compensation for the inconvenience!
The girl on reception couldn't actually say, what was the problem with our booking, and why didn't they write to me about this problem! She said, that there was some SMS yesterday, but I didn't get it.
Anyway, SMS on 1 day before about cancellation of the booking is not the way to make business!
They even couldn't book us another hotel for the same price. Found some expensive room.
So I advise travelers to check your booking beforehand, for you not to see yourself in this situation.

The location is perfect (Vilnius is a small city and you can go anywhere walking easily), our room was big and the breakfast huge and until 11 am!! (with orange juice, bread, cheese, eggs, toasts, jam, cereals, hot milk... and you can use the kitchen when you want).

The only bad thing is that they do not clean the rooms every day, but the staff is really nice and she even congratulated my father for his birthday :)

In Astra satisfies basic accommodation needs with its properly furnished, though lacking character, affordable rooms and central location. It also offers a breakfast including cereals, orange juice, cheese and meet plates, boiled eggs, coffee and tea. Basanaviciaus Street can get really noisy during the nighttime and on weekends. Overall, it's an okay place to stay during a short visit to Vilnius if you do not expect much from your accommodation other than a clean bed and a standard breakfast.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms overlooking the street as it can be noisy. Also, we were told that they have no double b...

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.
