I have been visiting this guest house for several years, and always enjoy my stay here very much.

dont expect a hotel - this is a simple guest house, and it was here long before the new big hotels of Kutaisi: Shalva, the host, was accepting people to his house in times when there were hardly any tourists in Georgia. throughout the years, the place developed, and now all rooms have showers inside, but the place still keep its "family" charm.

true, it is very basic and simple, but also very clean, and a chance to enjoy a stay in a family-style guesthouse, with splendid views of Kutaisi, right in the center of town.

if you look for a fancy hotel go elsewhere, but if you look for a nice, clean, cheap, family-style guest house - you will enjoy this place.

We were really pleasantly surprised when we came there. The location is perfect. It’s a short walking distance to the center of the city and Bagrat. The view from the top deck is outstanding. All of the rooms are very new, clean and comfortable. The food is very delicious, comes in a large variety and in large amounts. It’s great for any person with any taste. The employees are very careful, helpful and kind. The owner is just amazing. You’ll feel as if you’re his best friend. This is a very special place full of care, comfort, and the warmth of the Georgian people. Don’t miss this place if you are planning your trip to Georgia.

we were there for one night and the true ?? we hated every minute we have been there
so small rooms we had no place for our suitcases - a lot of noises fro all over the other rooms and the bath?? horrible !! you have to take a shower on the toilets... and have no place for nothing.
if you are in this area ?? find another place !!

First of all -this is definitely not a hotel but mearly a guesthouse. The upside is the view and the free wifi, but other than that we did not like it at all.
The so called shower is a tube from the sink , and there is hardly any water coming down from it since most of it leis to the sink.it is also dangerous because the electricity is not too safe in the bathroom either.....

If you do stay there do not take dinner since it is very basic and not too good. Better eat in the city.

Room Tip: If you are there you best take the newer rooms upstairs

Although this hotel has quite some rooms so tourist groups of considerable size are accomodated, the hostess/manager takes care of an efficient organisation. So individual travellers too get everything they may expect. We really liked our stay and can recommend this hotel.
