Kempinski Makes Lithuania Debut


Great news for visitors to Central Europe: Kempinski Hotels has opened its first property in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, and their first property in the Baltic States.

Kempinski Hotel Cathedral Square is housed in a listed building situated on the corner of Universiteto and L. Stuokos-Guceviciaus; it has been restored with an impressive lobby in white marble and panoramic windows.

Top room picks should be the Standard and Superior rooms on the top floor, which have a unique window design and attic roofs. Deluxe rooms have direct views of  Cathedral Square, along with high ceilings and large bathrooms with separate shower. Interconnecting rooms are available, and also rooms convenient for disabled guests.

The suites have been designed in a modern style, retaining many of the building’s original architectural features – some of them with alcove balconies overlooking Cathedral Square; they have large bathrooms, with separate bathtubs and showers. The Cupola Suite is a duplex, ideal for small-scale entertaining. The Presidential Suite is the biggest suite in Vilnius, and has been designed to the highest security standards, including bullet proof windows; it also has a separate butler’s kitchenette.

The fine-dining restaurant “Telegrafas” offers signature Lithuanian dishes, and a fine view of Cathedral Square. The lobby bar and lounge, Le Salon, is good for lunch, a traditional English high tea, pre-dinner cocktails, and intimate get-togethers.

Vilnius International Airport is about a 15-minute drive away. Upscale shopping and designer boutiques are within easy walking distance; there are two golf courses a short drive away, and open-air tennis courts. Cycling is very popular, as well as hot-air balloon rides over the city.

Kempinski Hotel Cathedral Square is located at Universiteto street 14/2 in Vilnius. For more information, visit
