This page lists the areas in Kaunas that are the best in terms of location and services for a hotel or other accommodation. In addition, the best and most liked hotels and other accommodation in these areas are presented.
Prices and availability
Kaunas is a fairly cheap place to stay, as you can get a big apartment for less than 30 euros in the busiest summer months, even in the busiest summer months. If you invest a little more, you can get a real luxury class accommodation, and it doesn’t really make sense in the city to pay a lot more than 50 euros a night.
Even if you arrive in Kaunas in the hustle and bustle of the busiest holiday seasons in July, there is still a lot of choice there a week before the trip. However, if you want to stay in the vicinity of the main square of the old town, it is worth looking at the accommodation several weeks in advance, because then there is more choice in the main places of the old town as well.
Where to stay in Kaunas
Kaunas is a surprisingly large city, and it is not worth staying anywhere. You should pay close attention to the location, and a lot depends on what you want to do in Kaunas.
If you specifically want to explore the old town, which is the best area for the visitor, you should stay there. The old town is far from many places in the city center, and if you stay there and also want to knock out new parts of the city center, you should prepare to walk quite a bit. Trips can be shortened by bus or taxi, but the bus does not run in the Old Town. If you want to go from the old town to visit even areas with a funicular, you can take a taxi at least in the other direction. If you only enjoy a couple of days in Kaunas, you should focus on the Old Town and the areas right next to it, as there is plenty to see and do.
The new side of downtown may be more convenient to stay than the old town, especially if you are staying a stone’s throw from the old town. The new parts of the city center are extensive, and it’s worth staying close to the main boulevard, near which everything is important. The parts of the main boulevard near the old town are a 15-20 minute walk to the old square of the old town, so in the best case there is quite a lot of walking. The new side of the city center has more supermarkets and locally popular cafes and restaurants, for example, and is an area where you can see how the locals spend their daily lives. The Old Town is an even more tourist-friendly area, where cafés and restaurants are more expensive, but of course there is an atmosphere of its own, which is not met anywhere in Finland.
