“Drama worth every liti”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2012

We arrived here on Friday afternoon for two nights and learnt that our booking was lost. Luckily we were nicely rearranged to 5 star Ramada suite with the same price for the first night. When we came back here for the second night the hotel offered us full dinner at their cozy restaurant! We had such wonderful service and delicious dinner! It's of course a very bad mistake to miss someone's booking but the service we got to recover could not have been better!
Hemingway room was pretty nicely furbished and cozy. Some noise from the street though.
The breakfast next morning at the beautiful terrace was disappointing. Service there was from the other extreme, unfriendly and unattentive. I ordered fruit yoghurt and noted that it was out of the date. The explanation for that was that it was the last one they had - no apologies offered. Caviaar with blinis tasted old and couldn't eat it.
Still we had one exciting story ahead, though it was not the hotel's fault. The reception ordered us a taxi to catch the minibus to Kaunas airport. Normally the taxi comes there in some minutes but now it took 20min. Then we were in real hurry and the receptionist asked the driver to speed up. He indeed did... but we found ourselves in the wrong place. The minibus leaves from Panorama... HOTEL NOT SHOPPING CENTER. Some more speeding and driving against red lights. Surprisingly we caught the minibus at the last minute - it luckily didn't leave exactly in time!

We've stayed at the Shakespeare twice on our visits to Vilnius. Overall its difficult to fault this establishment. The staff exhibit an excellent level of customer service and speak English fluently.

The rooms exude 'old style' charm as does the hotel in general, with beautiful seating areas & excellent a la carte breakfasts.

We recently spent two days at the Shakespeare Hotel as part of our classic car club's Baltic Rally. The hotel is ideal for car clubs having a fairly large open car park in the rear courtyard. It is in the centre of the old town where parking is at a premium. The hotel is very comfortable and the English speaking staff are all excellent. Breakfast is not a buffet but is prepared for each guest individually. The breakfast room however is a little small if the hotel is full - but as we had our breakfast a little later than business guests this worked well. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to other car clubs.

Small, charming, eclectic. Breakfast cooked to order in the morning. We did not like our room at first and they did everything possible to move us to the 3rd floor and a bigger room. The staff Is most accommodating and sweet.

Room Tip: Voltaire Is big room on 3rd floor, ovlooks church

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Very friendly and very helpful staff. Ask for rooms away from the street and splurge a little to get the bigger rooms. Great location. Nice restaurant with good food. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room away from the street. Avoid the higher rooms in warm months as they can be hot.
