“Great value, Great Location”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

The Riverside Hotel is close to the downtown and Old City. It is adjacent to one of the best open markets, the Dry Bridge, and across the street from a good authentic Georgian restaurant, the Old House (Dzvelis Sakhli). The price is right, the rooms are clean and the staff very helpful. A great place to stay when you visit Tbilisi.

Overall experience is very positive. The room I've selected online was occupied and I was offered to stay in lux suite for the same price. That made our stay even more pleasant then planned. Breakfast was ok.

Surprisingly, hotel restaurant had a good selection of meals with excellent price. Try home-made vine there.

Staff really cares. No issues at all.

This hotel is very good. The location is convenient enough though the place is very quiet. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Staff is very friendly. The hotel left a good vivid impression.

I stayed here in December for five nights on my second trip to Tbilisi, and was very impressed. The location of the hotel is perfect, just steps away from the Dry Bridge Market and a few minutes from Rustaveli. The room I stayed in was very large and comfortable. The bathroom was great, and the Georgian-style balcony, although not private, was huge!

Breakfast was fine, nothing amazing but nice and plentiful, and the staff both in the restaurant and on reception were friendly and helpful.

The room would be greatly improved by coffee and tea-making facilities and a personal safety box, but these are small complaints for a hotel I can heartily recommend.

This is a small but great Hotel in Tbilisi. Stayed for six days in Jan/ Feb and had a great time. It has a limited number of rooms and that is the USP of this place. It has extremely friendly staff starting from the door man to the receptionists to the people at the restaurant. It is as if you know them all. Very helpful despite the language barrier.
I got a sense of being at home at this place. Though located on a busy road, it was well insulated from noise. The rooms were nice and had all amenities including a bath tub in the bath room. Good bed linen and house keeping.
A small but cosy restaurant and bar with good food added to the experience. The price too was very competitive and thus gave me good value for money. I enjoyed my stay here and the staff made it great by giving me a lot help in sight seeing and travel arrangements. I shall always remember this particular stay as a lovely experience and it was a Home Away from Home to me for the week that I spent in Tbilisi

Everything we experienced during our stay in Riverside Hotel was pleasant. Nice looking and very helpful personnel, tasty food, complimentary breakfast, well done dinner with complementary wine . Fast room service, clean rooms, scenic view from balcony, friendly doormen and driver. What else we needed? We will highly recommend this hotel to our friends and families.

Friendly English-speaking staff. Good breakfast.
Hotel is located pretty centrally (20 mins walk to Old Town) but not every cab driver knew where it was. it does not have a normal address. The easiest way to explain its location looked to be to say right side Mktvari across from the paintings market.
One piece of advice - if you need to cross the road alongside the river use the overpass unless it's middle of the night and traffic is relatively light.
If you get the top floor suite be aware that the elevator does not go to the top floor. You'd have to walk one floor up.
The double paned windows keep the street noise out pretty well.
Wi-fi worked pretty well.

Room Tip: The elevator does not go to the top floor.
