Hotel | Strolling through Vilnius Old Town, which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you cannot miss the Stikliai Hotel. Housed in an old building with baroque and gothic features, the hotel stands at the intersection of five lanes in the heart of the Old Town, the former Jewish trade quarter, at 7 Gaono Street.
A listed building, the hotel is close to Vilnius University, the President's Office and the Town Hall, and is surrounded by churches, museums, restaurants and gift shops.
The hotel got its name from Stikliu Street, on which many craftsmen had their workshops in the 15th and 16th centuries. Glass-blowers (Stikliai in Lithuanian) also had small shops there, where they sold their wares.
In the 17-18th centuries the building belonged to the Catholic Church, which had opened a tavern there and rented the apartments to the rich merchants. The house had suffered from frequent fires and had undergone several reconstructions. The recent reconstruction was carried out by the new owners-the Stikliai Company.
