From journal Cheap 6-Day Visit to Klaipeda

New York, New York

While small, Klaipeda is a somewhat spread-out city—the major sights, city center, ferry port to the Curonian Spit, and bus and train stations are all in an arc, of sorts, that fans across the Danes River. Consequently, any accommodation is either extremely convenient to one of the places and not the others, or somewhat convenient to all of them. Litinterp falls into the latter category—it’s about 10 minutes to all these locations, save the bus and train stations, which are more like 15 minutes away. As a result, it’s a good place to stay if you plan to make Klaipeda a base, as I did. Their willingness to double-check often-confusing Lithuanian bus and train timetables is particularly helpful.
Litinterp, which, as its name indicates, began life as an interpretation company before branching into accommodation and rental cars, boasts of providing "The Ultimate Service," and my experience was that it consistently did. The concierge service they provided was better than at any hotel I’ve stayed at. I arrived earlier than my original stated arrival time, but they nevertheless immediately got my room ready—before 10 in the morning! Likewise, although they only generally serve breakfast (which they leave in wicker basket outside your door) at certain hours, they happily accommodated me when I needed it sooner because of an early train. Needless to say, they were equally accommodating regarding its contents. I simply can’t imagine staying anywhere else!
As I neglected to take pictures of Litinterp, I hope you'll enjoy these pictures of Klaipeda.
