We’re back from Lithuania, where we stayed in the Sfinksas Hotel in Kaunas. This is a nice hotel set in the suburbs not too far from the centre of town, where you wouldn’t normally expect to find a hotel. If it wasn’t for my perfect sense of direction, we’d still be looking for it.
The room was fine, and the breakfasts were OK. The only problem was on the last night when there was a wedding reception in the area directly below our room. There was virtually no soundproofing, so we were kept awake until after 2am by the band. I normally don’t complain, and you have to allow for other people enjoying themselves, but I phoned receptionn at about 1am to suggest they turn the volume down a bit.
Five hours of traditional Lithuanian wedding music played by a not bad band (drums, accordian, bass guitar) was enough.
