From the classical Palace of the Grand Dukes to the vibrant nightlife of Vilnius Street, there really is something for everyone when it comes to where to stay in Vilnius. Book a top hotel in the capital of Lithuania with Culture Trip and indulge your passion.
There is no shortage of choice for some of the best restaurants in Vilnius around the town centre. However, for the foodie traveller, a meal at Pacai’s in-house Muros Restaurant is a journey into gastronomy, inspired by the best steakhouses around the world. The seasonal menu features the freshest ingredients on top of a fine selection of steaks from Argentina, USA and Japan. Each one is cooked to perfection on a Montague broiler, with the cut seared at 1,000C (1,832F).
Beyond the usual attractions, Vilnius is a fantastic shopping destination. Shopaholics will be delighted to find large shopping malls and outlet centres such as Akropolis, Panorama and Ozas clustered in the north of the city. All your shopping desires are within a 3mi (4.8km) radius of the minimalist rooms at Urbihop. Head to the Restobar beforehand to grab a juice, and return to a comfortable bed at the end of the day.
Don’t be fooled by the old-fashioned exterior. Step into Hotel Vilnia and you’ll find luxurious rooms with a soft, modern design – think neutral tones and plush bedding – alongside traditional features such as herringbone floors. Book the suite for far-reaching city views. Unlike other luxury hotels that may feel a little cold in atmosphere, the friendly staff at Hotel Vilnia will make your stay feel like being with family.
In town for a sporting event? Green Vilnius Hotel is in the vicinity of Vilnius’ many sporting venues, including Avia Solutions Group Arena (formerly Siemens Arena), SEB Arena and Smėlio Arena. Whether it be a football match, beach volleyball tournament or major basketball battle, you can rest easy in this hotel knowing the games are just down the road.
For those seeking a spot of culture, the relaxed Neringa Hotel on Gedimino Avenue is an ideal base. Within walking distance of the Lithuanian National Opera and Ballet Theatre and the Vytautas Kasiulis Art Museum, you’ll be in the cultural heart of Vilnius. Rooms feature Scandi-style furnishings and crisp, feather-free bedding. Take your morning coffee on the terrace that peers out over the street and watch the world go by.
Nature camping in the capital of Lithuania? You read that right. In between the city centre and the expanse of the Pavilnys Regional Park is Downtown Forest Hostel & Camping. While not a forest by definition, the property and camp grounds are surrounded by a cluster of trees, providing a tranquil location in which you can feel away from the city, yet within reach of all the major attractions and facilities.
