As I turned the corner and saw the Vilnius Comfort Hotel LT I had a moment of panic. There in front of me was a familiar sight, the very outdated logo of the massive budget hotel chain Comfort Suites. If you have noticed, I don’t feature chain hotels. I am a strong believer in staying somewhere unique as the city you are visiting and a Comfort Hotel surely wasn’t that. For a brief moment, I wondered if I was in the wrong place. This quickly passed as I stepped through the Comfort Hotel LT doors and found a chain hotel unlike any other.
Not your Typical Chain Hotel
While touring the Comfort Hotel LT with Ruta, the property manager, I questioned how the place came to be so unique. Turns out the Scandinavian arm of Comfort Hotels does things a little different and since the Comfort Hotel LT is the only property of this arm not in Scandinavia, they have been given a little more freedom. This hands-off approach has allowed Ruta and her team to put forth the most unique property in Vilnius, one unlike any other chain hotel I’ve been to. It’s rock ‘n’ roll theme and loud colour palette are present throughout. The lobby is a lively place with energy and character. Removing traditional hotel features like a minibar in the room and placing it in the lobby has created a more social feel. Then there is the free coffee, the only hotel in town to offer this, and it’s organic.
Pinky, a black rabbit given to the hotel as a gift upon opening, chills in the corner. This is both rock ’n’ roll and homage to the fact that the hotel is pet-friendly. Next to her is one of many amazing murals painted by a commissioned local artist. These murals alone make this a place to visit, even if you’re not a guest.
And visit they do. Time Restaurant is gaining a good reputation for local and fresh food at a reasonable price. Although I didn’t try a meal, I did enjoy the organic and included breakfast.
Rock ‘n’ Roll Rooms
The unique touches of the Comfort Hotel LT don’t stop in the lobby. As soon as you step off the elevator on your floor you’re greeted with another bold mural and each room has a photo of a concert scene on the walls. Rooms are modern, practical, and comfortable. The bathroom quotes even made this morning hater smile first thing.
Signature Suites at the Comfort Hotel LT
If you want to take your love of rock ‘n’ roll further, the Comfort Hotel LT has you covered. Choose between five signature rooms that are styled after a featured artist. Stay classy in the Sinatra suite or let out that material girl in the Madonna room.
Comfort and Unique
I strive to feature the most unique hotels in the places I visit and for the first time, this unique hotel belongs to a chain. Beyond the name, you would never know it. With recently being awarded the best Comfort Hotel of the year, perhaps this chain knows it too.
Either way, the Comfort Hotel LT is THE unique hotel in Vilnius and is worth checking out…or checking in.

Although I was provided a complimentary stay at the Comfort Hotel LT,
the experience, opinions, and Rock ‘n’ Roll stay was my own.
