I arrived early (12pm for a 2pm check-in), sweating from a long, hot walk from the central bus station. The receptionist was able to get me into a room at that instant. The restaurant was really good, too. This is a typical business hotel, but for a leisure traveler, it is a great value, located right downtown.
Lithuania had been experiencing a heat wave; the room was not air-conditioned (something Americans take for granted), but the room was cool overnight.

The hotel is in the old city, close to attractions and there is plenty of public transportation around. I liked the fact that it was quiet (it is inside a circular wall); the breakfast was excellent. The hotel people helped me get from the airport to the hotel late at night because my flight was very late; I emailed the hotel and received immediate replies to all my emails. I was also advised on how much to pay f I wanted to take a taxi on my own.
Everyone was well informed at the main desk; everyone speaks English, including the guardian, so it was easy to communicate.
It happened that it was chili at night and I asked if the room could be heated: I was immediately offered a heating device. The space inside the wall is clean, the grass is well mowed and pretty; in addition, one can have lunch and diner within the walls, in the same restaurant that offers breakfast (which is included in the hotel cost). There are tables/chairs to seat in the small park too. A beauty parlor is available for women in one of the buildings.
Rooms are very clean...the shower worked well; there are plenty of towels.
The internet worked also well...which does not happen in Cincinnati hotels, for instance!!!
And there is also a room refrigerator with various drinks and products. The laundry service is not expensive. I did not see an iron for ironing oneself. I had a plug adapter for my computer, so I don't know if the desk carries any.
I highly recommend this place!

Fantastic! Every staff I interacted with was friendly, professional, service oriented. I stayed in the George Bernard Shaw room, top floor. Beautiful decor, wood floors. The room amenities are good (real hair dryer, shoe cleaning equipment included cream, good quality of shampoo/scrub, etc.). Winter time guests will particularly appreciate the heated floor in the large bathroom! Abundance of hot water, good water pressure. King bed supremely comfortable with good linens. Bath linens on the rough side but still okay quality. Good lighting in the room, comfortable chairs, a couple of English channels on the TV (though really just CNN and BBC, not for shows or movies). The bar/restaurant on the 2nd floor is well stocked, provides excellent food (10% discount for hotel guests outside of breakfast). I was particularly impressed with breakfast--you order off a menu instead of going to a buffet; food is fresh/delicious and you're not limited in ordering.
They were replacing the clay roof tiles during my stay but they didn't start until after 8am and did not work past a normal business day; it wasn't possible then to have the window open when they were working, which was a shame since the weather was beautiful. However, this shouldn't put anyone off--I had a Skype interview during one of my afternoons and it didn't interfere; the staff in fact offered to ask the workers to change their lunch time to during my interviews, which was a gracious offer which I declined

The Hotel Conti was not my first choice, but I changed my booking and I am so glad that I did!
A top class hotel, in the Old Town, which is surrounded by buildings of - let's say "Character"........ ok, the surrounding area is a little shabby and run-down, but I did not feel at any time that this was not a safe area. In fact, I will go as far as saying that I felt perfectly fine here, and have felt more at ease in bigger cities.
The hotel is only a 5-10 minute walk from the central train station, which is 8mins by train from the Airport. That trip cost 2.5 Litas (in English that was 0.60p - The bus was somewhere similar, and a Taxi was £6.00) There is a supermarket and open market nearby, and a large Police Station too. So the area is busy but safe.
There was an initial mixup with the booking upon arrival; they had allocated me a twin room instead of a double. However the next morning as there were no doubles available, housekeeping rectified the problem with putting the beds together and placing a huge mattress on the bed - I am nearly 5'10" tall, and the bed was now wider than I am tall....!!
The room was comfortable, the bathroom was more than adequate, and the housekeeping staff wonderful..!!
Breakfast was sensible with fresh food, and was served between 7-10 daily. However, if you left it too late then you may be disappointed, as not all the dishes were replenished.
Overall, a great hotel and one I would be happy to stay at in the future.

I found this place by mistake on Expedia and ended up having one of the best Vacations in years. There are many languages being spoken in the Lobby and everyone is getting along. Don't be surprised if you see staff running to the kitchen or bar...everyone here has a smile and you'll be glad you had a few beers here. There are all types of events going on. From weddings, press releases, Basketball games, ect...
