Artagonist, a new hotel, is at 34 Pilies Street in Vilnius, in a renovated building dating back to the late 15th century. The four-star hotel offers 34 rooms, accommodating up to 65 guests. It also has a gourmet restaurant.
The hotel’s interior was designed by the architects Evelina Taladzevičienė and Rytis Mikulionis, of the Plazma studio. MG Valda also engaged up to 16 artists, who decorated each room with wall paintings and sculptural installations.
“We wanted to create a striking, modern, slightly eccentric and comfortable hotel,” said Vilius Vaičekauskas, MG Valda hotel manager. “Much attention has been paid to the details, which make it different to other hotels. For instance, in every room, guests are provided with exclusive Chemex coffee makers, and the mini-bar prices are more customer friendly. Mobile room key functions are also being installed.”
Having downloaded a mobile key app, Artagonist’s guests will be able to lock and unlock their rooms, control the lighting and temperature, and order additional services with the help of their smartphones.
The name Artagonist is a combination of two words, and describes the character of the hotel, which is modern, interested in aesthetics and the arts, and opposed to popular taste. This character is painted on the wall of the reception area.
