I stayed in No.12 Boutique Hotel for 7 nights in January 2013 for a business trip. I was given a room #4 on the second floor (or 1st floor if you consider the reception area as a ground floor). My stay at this boutique hotel was very pleasant and satisfying. The room was a bit small but quite adequate and very modern and nicely appointed.
The staff were excellent at all times with prompt e-mail responses and assistance before we arrived. During the time in Tbilisi, they have also been helpful with restaurant/ taxi bookings, and have answered all our questions about the area. The tourists and guest can be very annoying with questions sometimes, but the staff were cheerful, friendly and helpful. The last day of our stay, i got really sick before my flight and the receptionist went to the pharmacy to get some medication and i thought it was truly a nice gesture on his side. I really appreciated that!
The breakfasts were very nice and were a great way to start my long working days. The selection included variety of pastries, fruits, cheese, bread selection, ham and sausages etc. If you request, they can make you an omlet too. They also have a nespresso machine and nice coffee. Most of the former soviet hotels still use instant coffee :)
And the location is truly the best! Ten minutes to walk to Meidan square or to the Freedom square, Rustaveli avenue, and other attractions were also within a walking distance. The hotel is located on a busy area but on a rear street, which makes your stay calm and quiet. There are many restaurants around and i would suggest Mirzaani restaurant and the one right next to it (on the left from Mirzaani)- both are great Georgian restaurants. If you walk a bit further by the river towards the Sulfur baths, there is a Bread House, which is also a nice restaurant (though a bit overpriced) Oh, on the way to the hotel from Meidan area, stop by the Luca Polaire ice cream shop, the best ice cream i have tried!
Overall, i really enjoyed this small and charming boutique hotel. I would say this is the best bang for my buck!
I might be coming to Tbilisi for a business trip again in March, and guess where i would be staying? ;)
