Location: Hotel Narutis is located on Pilies street 24, the main artery of Vilnius Old Town. This building is the architectural monument of 16th century that was specially built to house a hotel and was first mentioned in 1581 in the Book of World Cities published in Cologne.
In the 16th-19th century professors, scholars and students (whose families belonged to the nobility) of the University of Vilnius, one of the oldest universities in Eastern Europe, as well as famous people of science and culture lived in the Hotel. Poets Adam Miczkiewicz and Juliusz Slowacki, writer and historian Kraszewski have lived and worked in this building.
Windows of the Hotel face the square of St. John's Church of the University, which is the most beautiful square of the Old Town. Other windows have a view over a quiet courtyard of the former Botanical Gardens of the University. From the Hotel windows you can see a beautiful panorama of church and mansion towers, the Gediminas Castle and the Hill of Three Crosses.
Accomodation: The Hotel practically does not have two rooms that would be the same. Each room has its own face with unique frescoes, wall paintings, original 16th century beam ceilings, timber-framed floors or Gothic vaults.
At the end of 2000 all rooms of the Hotel were redecorated under the supervision of the French architect and designer Anne Toulous.
For the rooms she selected stylish and comfortable Lithuanian and French furniture, elegant curtains and bedspreads, soft and noise absorbing carpeting for the rooms and corridors.
Each room has a mini bar, satellite TV with English, German, French, Swedish, Japanese and Russian channels, four Pay-TV channels broadcasting programmes all around the clock. The Hotel has air-conditioning system and autonomous (independent from the city) heating system, which also ensures constant supply of hot water. All bathrooms have modern equipment, including hairdryers and other conveniences.
Dining: The 16th century cellars house a restaurant beloved by the residents and guests of Vilnius. The Cellar restaurant can provide the seating for 50 people. At the beginning of 2001 the decor of the hotel cellar was changed, transforming it into elegant and romantic restaurant. The restaurant offers European cuisine, carefully selected and prepared by the chef of the international class.
Various embassies, ministries and companies have lunches or dinners here. Banquettes and fourchettes for up to 70 people are arranged and also birthdays, weddings and various festivities are celebrated here. The New Year's celebrations at the hotel Narutis are receiving great acclaim.
Kristupo Cafe is very popular in the Old Town. The Cafe was named after famous Lithuanian nobleman Kristupas Radvila-Juodasis who once was the owner of the Hotel. In the cosy surrounding you may enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and taste cakes and savoury salads prepared by the Hotel confectioners and chefs, read the latest dailies and observe the life of Pilies Street.
