“A quaint corner of Tbilisi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

Spent one night at the Skadeveli while in Tbilisi. The guest house is in a great location (although it is very hard to find - especially when coming back from a bender). Ika is a wonderful host and will share lots of advice with you about the city.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a private bathroom

had serious hesitation period: this place is so awesome i don't want to hit the fully booked sign next time i'm around. Irakli is a kind, helpful, hospitable host. the rooms are fantastic - comfy, warm (we were in Jan) and spacious. location is in the heart of Tbilisi old town...

Room Tip: i'd opt for ensuite one, but there's a nice one with balcony as well.

As my original accomodation had a water problem, I was referred to the SKAdaVELI.
I enjoyed staying there a lot and Irakli is a perfect host. Even though the outside of the building looks bad, the interior is very nice - and that is what counts.
He offers only 4 rooms but I felt very much at home. Talking to him and the other guests. The bathroom is shared but spotless clean and the same is true for the kitchen.
The location is also perfect, on a quiete street of old town Tbilisi. Within walking distance of almost everything. If you want to take the bus No.37 to / from the airport (0.50 GEL), no problem. Very easy.
When coming back to Georgia I will defenitely stay with him again....and Swanetia is still on my list of most-see destinations...

Wish I had the ability to find the right words to tell how much I love this place. It really now is one of the reasons to spend a long weekend in Tbilisi for me. And if it's booked (which happens very often, since there are only 4 rooms there), it is a reason enough to shift the travel dates.
The house itself, on a narrow, old, one of the most true Tbilisi streets, one of those houses that do not really seem to last very long, the old wooden door, the stairs to the second floor that leave you with no hope at all to pass unnoticed, unless you master the art of being weightless, the huge and beautiful old terrace, where it's so good to have a bottle (or maybe two, well, three...ok, not more that four) or wine (even if it's December, it's still not cold somehow), and the rooms themselves, especially my favorite one, the only one that has a bathroom ensuite, renovated just to the point of being fantastically comfortable and very modern in appearance, without losing a single bit of the old Tbilisi feel.
A masterwork, really, thank you Irakli!

This guest house is located on a rather tranquil residential street so it's possible to sleep well even with the windows open. Despite this, it's right in the center of the old part of the city and good cafés and restaurants are just a very short walk away.

The guest house is very small, only four rooms. I stayed in a room with shared bathroom. I think they cleaned the bathroom at least two times each day, so it was clean. The owners also use this bathroom, so there's a lot of private toiletries in the shower and around the sink. It didn't bother me very much, but it would be nice if there was more space for my own toiletries.

My room was basic, but charming. The bed was comfortable and the free wifi worked well.

To go from the room to the bathroom, I had to go outside (on the balcony). This wasn't a problem for me, since I stayed there in the beginning of october and the temperature was still nice, but I think this might be a little bit cold in winter.

Don't be put off by the exterior. It is a great place to stay.....quiet, convenient and super clean. The owner speaks excellent English and is very helpful and "hands-on". There are only 4 rooms so book ahead. If it is your first visit to Tbilisi, I would recommend you arrange with the owner to be met as it is a hard place to find and there is no sign outside.

I have been in two hostels in Tbilisi and Skadaveli is the wonderful one. Lovely balcony with heartwarming atmophere. Quiet and comfortable room. Nice and supportive staff, Irakeli. Good location with very reasonable price. You can also taste the special atmosphere of the Tbilisi old town.

Room Tip: Book ahead and it is usually fully booked. No sign outside the guesthouse. Look for No.27 at Vertskh...
