“Very basic, but very good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2011

Me and my friend were looking for a basic hotel/hostel to sleep while spending a weekend in Vilnius and chose Ecotel after friend's recommendation. We didn't need anything else but a bed to sleep in and a shower and this hotel offered that, but also quite a good breakfast. The beds were ok, nothing special, but enough for my needs. Shower and bathroom were good and the overall cleanliness really good. So, for the small price we paid for the accomodation, we got a lot! I was very satisfied with the hotel. Also it's within a walking distance from the center. I recommend this to any budget travellers, who don't need any luxuries :)

we had a fantastic stay for 3 days here during our stay at Vilnius. Though outside the old town, it is manageable as old town is only 15 mins walk away. on the first look of it, the staff at the reception seems to be a bit cold, but if you ask them for some help, they are more than eager to help you. There is also a good restaurant serving good Russian culinary on the main road just outside the hotel. Rooms were very clean. The bathroom with the towel-heater was perfect. Room service too was adequate. Breakfast buffet was very lavish and appetizing with lots of cakes and smoked fish etc. though noise is a bit of problem in this hotel. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel for future travelers.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights in the first week of Sept 2011.
Location:
About 10 minutes walk north from the bridge (Zaliasis Tilta) over the river on Vilnius Gatve(street) where the Bus No 2 from the airport also stops. No shops or restaurants near the hotel.
Room Rate:
For a single room the lowest rate I was able to find in 1st week of Sept was about US $82 per night with breakfast which I thought was not a good value for this hotel.
Room:
Clean but outdated and small. Shower was by itself a small room. Single bed was not comfortable. The bed sheet can not be tucked in on the wall side so it was not staying in place. Only one bath towel but it had towel driyng rack.
Front Desk Staff:
Not so helpful. During the checking, I requested change of a 50 Ltl bill, I was told we do not do that ! The night clak, a lady named Dzierana was not that keen on helping the guests.
Hotel arranges for a taxi to the airport for 25 euros !!
I paid only 15 litas one way with EKIPAZAS taxi.

Breakfast:
Buffet with good selection. Well attended by the staff.


There was a computer with internet next to the front desk which was free to use.
I saw a few people at the bar in the lobby in the evening.
The first night: There were people in the rear of the hotel talking very loud. My room was on the higher floor but I could not sleep.
Second Night: The people satying on the same floor made a lot of noise talking loudly in the hallway !
Recommendation: I would stay at a hotel with better ratings near the center even if it cost a little extra.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the higher floor

We spent three nights recently at Ecotel Vilnius. The location is approx 1.5 km walk from Old Town. It is near the newly emerging business district and easily accessible by Bus # 2 from Airport ( 1.6 Euro fare ) .
The hotel is rather drab and mundane in appearance , kind of in keeping with "Soviet " architecture. The rooms were large with high ceilings . The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were acceptable.
Staff were friendly and all spoke English rather well. We were disappointed with one Desk clerk, whom we asked to arrange a cab for a morning departure, who advised us that Taxi fare to Airport was approx 60 Litas. However after getting in the cab upon departure and advising driver to make sure the meter was on "1" the fare to the airport was only 17 Litas. Evidently one of the most difficult things is to get an honest cab driver. Apparently this staff member "conspires" with the cab drivers.
Breakfast was comparable with all other hotels we stayed at on our trip. Cereals,yogurts, meats, cheeses,breads coffee, tea and juice.
The bar in the lobby was staffed by Diana and Paulius both of whom were very pleasant and did a great job. One of the evenings we were there a large contingent of Macedonian Basketball fans returned from the game in Kaunas and we all had a rollicking good time at the bar.
The hotel is a good value but for a few Litas more we would recommend a hotel in Old Town proper.

Our stay at Ecotel Vilnius last may was very pleasant. Staff was friendly (i've lost my return flight boarding card after check out, and they let me print another copy for free) and there's free wi-fi everywhere in the building. Our room was simple, but clean and large. The bathroom was maybe a little too dark and small, and sometime with a strange smell, but it was clean: more than ok for the price we paid. Downtown Vilnius is 10-15 min. walking distance, and if you have a car, you can park for free in the quiet (and at night a little too dark) hotel street. The included breakfast is basic.

Clean, simple and cheap. Good for one night. Breakfast OK, but do not expect to much (very simple). In my opinion need renovation of the bathrooms (quite old equipment). Free parking, center located.
