2* Mikotel Vilnius is a small friendly hotel located near the central station. Rooms feature telephone, international tv channels and bathrooms with a shower. The saying that Vilnius is the new Prague is not by accident. Vilnius` Old Town - a listed Unesco World Heritage site, with its mix of narrow cobbled streets, baroque Catholic churches and Russian Orthodox Cathedrals dominating the skyline, amber and linen souvenir shops and Lithuanian restaurants serving hearty cuisine - is just a short stroll away from the hotel. The new town and Gedimino prospekt - the main shopping street with its range of shops, restaurants and nightclubs, is also within easy reach. Vilnius is European Capital of Culture 2009 so there will be a range of events happening all over the city throughout the year. Mikotel provides the perfect base for the budget travelller!
