The hotel gave me a room on the first floor in the older part of the building (room 105), which was okay, but pretty basic. This room didnt have a computer, but there was WiFi for an additional 6EUR per day or so. The hotel is not bang in the centre, but short walk down the hill, say 10 minutes or so (and 15 back).

I'm sat amidships, which is perfect for the free tea, coffee, soft drinks, "ensuite" and English language newspapers. Above me an onboard computer rotates between showing our speed, time to destination and weather for stops along the way. And of course there is free high speed ...

Also, the Lithuanian people had the reputation of being the most tolerant in the world. In addition, it is located at the exact geographical center of the European continent, making it the ideal destination for people fleeing the harsh treatments in their own lands.
In addition, Vilnius had the largest Jewish population, boasting over ...
... in Vilnius we arrived at our hotel, perfectly located outside the gate leading into Old Town. We sought out an ATM to withdraw litas ($100 = 250 litas). Dinner followed, in celebration of Jeannette's birthday.
We are now back at the Hotel City Gate and have looked through the album Barb meticulously put together for her Lithuanian relatives. Tomorrow, we are up bright and early on a quest to reunite family.
