Our group consisted of 6 women-- friends from college on a reunion plus one daughter of our friend who is in her 20s. We spent two nights and three days in Tbilisi and stayed here. Very friendly staff. Almost all the staff speak good English. Very helpful.
Our friend made the room reservations and picked this hotel due to value and comments from Trip Advisor.
When we first entered and checked in, we were disappointed as the "hotel" is in a residential area and is really like a house turned into a B&B.-- there are 3 floors and we were in Room 5 on the 3rd floor. It has 2 windows and a small balcony. There is AC. We did not need this on the 2nd night as it was very cool (high 50s F at night). We opened the windows to let in cool night breeze and left these windows open overnight. I was reassured by the front desk clerk that it is pretty safe place.also, very quiet neighborhood-- and so, with the open windows no problem with the noise. FYI, We were there from Sept 5-7.
The only complaint is the location is not walking distance to the Old Town. Taxi is approx 6 GEL per trip from the hotel to Old Town. The exchange rate was 1.6 GEL = US$1.
The taxi drivers do not speak English and have meters but do not go by the metered fare. Several of these drivers were irate when we paid the fare as per meter.
The rooms look bigger in the website --- but OK size for 2 people. WE all had our own bathrooms ensuite. No frills.
Clean and well-maintained and SAFE.
The daily breakfast is very complete-- cereals, fresh fruits, breads, juices, yogurt, breakfast meats and eggs, hot beverages, etc. All good in this department.
Once again-- going back to the airport, we were informed by the hotel staff, no more than
25 GEL for the taxi ride. Again, the taxi driver had a meter and showed 16.75 GEL but wanted to get paid 25 GEL. (There were two of us and 2 suitcases on the trip to the airport.) So, I recommend have the hotel staff talk to the taxi driver before you board the taxi so that there are no surprises when you get to your destination. (The only problem is when you are out and about and you hail the cab and reach the hotel---)
In general, the Tbilisi residents we had contact with were very friendly and helpful.
We hired a tour guide for the two full days. This is the thing to do. He provided a van to accommodate all of us.
