What makes Skapo Apartments so Darn Good? After parking our car on a narrow alleyway in the heart of Old Town Vilnius, we entered an unassuming wooden gate to find a lovely cobblestone courtyard with a covered outdoor dining table and bright flowers. We stayed in Apartment #1, a cozy studio with a cool loft bed, wooden beams, and colorful paintings of old Vilnius. We couldn't have asked for a better location or a more comfortable pad in Vilnius.
Vibe: Private apartments, atmospheric courtyard, and friendly managers.
Location: Smack dab in the center of Old Town, Skapo Apartments are just a one minute walk from Pilies Gatve, one of Vilnius’s most lively pedestrian streets lined with restaurants, cafes, and souvenir shops. Other attractions, such as Cathedral Square and the University are just a few minutes away as well.
Rooms: The three apartments that make up Skapo Apartments are all clustered around the same quiet courtyard. All apartments have laundry and kitchenettes, and our apartment had its own glassed-in sun area and a small table in the courtyard. The other two apartments are larger; Apartment #2 is the most basic, and Apartment #3 sports some authentic details like antique refurbished doors and arches.
Food: While you could easily cook all of your meals in your kitchenette, we wouldn’t recommend it! Old Town Vilnius has a ton of inspired restaurants including the raw food spot right outside the courtyard gate on Skapos Gatve.
Keep in Mind: We found a parking spot right outside the gate, and kept our car there for three nights. Apparently the proximity of the Presidential Palace helps to keep the adjacent streets safe.
