I booked the Magnus Hotel because I was only staying one night in Kaunas on my way to a wedding in Marijampole and it is just over the road from the bus station. All I wanted to do was drop my bags on and go and explore the city.
My first impression was that it was clean and well presented and the receptionist wasn't in favour of eye contact but she was helpful.
There is a roof top bar which has good views. The food served was pretty much the same as you get in any regular restuarant in Lithuania but at a higer price.
The room was clean and a nice size. Unfortunately it was at the front of the hotel which was on a busy road. I should have guessed from its location near the bus station that it wouldn't be very quiet.
The weather was warm but I had to make a choice between noise and heat as the windows could be closed but there was no air conditioning.
I was also kept awake by lots of doors slamming and someone even knocked on my door at one stage which was a bit disconcerting. I had to remind myself that it was possibly just one of the youngesters in the basketball teams staying in the hotel that had probably forgotten which room they were in.
I would recommend staying here as it was clean and very convenient for the bus and train station and also only a 20 minute pleasant walk to the old town. If you're staying for longer than one night though I'd look elsewhere.

Arrived in Lithuania for the first time late at night, speaking only English. Front desk was extremely pleasant and recommended restaurants. I loved my room. Leather sofa, comfortable beds and a beautiful bathroom with a big window. Nice bathroom fixtures and a big wooden ledge to store stuff on. The breakfast was very good - everything you would expect. Very convenient location in the heart of old town. Kind of cool decor, but an understated cool. After a side trip to Vilnius I returned to Kaunas for a final night. At my prior request, the front desk gave me my same room back again. All with a smile. It felt like home.

The reception staff were friendly throughout our visit, but their miserable cousins in the restaurant/breakfast room reminded us we were in a Baltic country. Our bedroom (double, with single bed for our 11 year old son) was huge, with wooden floor and floor to ceiling French windows & balcony. Strange oval pod shaped shower room protruded into our room, and there was no hot water on the first night, but otherwise the facilities were great. The drunk patriot marching up and down outside at 4.30 - 5.30am singing what sounded like the national anthem was not the fault of the hotel management, but the loud drunken argument the following night in the hotel foyer presumably was. We were expecting to see blue lights at the window at any moment, but eventually peace broke out. Breakfast was huge, varied and somewhat bizarre to Western European tastes - 1970s style canapes, with piped fishy goo on ritz-type biscuits, roast potatoes, frankfurters, barley gruel, pepper and onion salad, but also toast, smoked salmon, cereals, soused herring. The old town was a good 15 mins walk, through modern but attractive tree-lined shopping streets down towards river. A fascinating city, cheaper but not as pretty as Vilnius.
