“A special surprise”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Georgia is a magnificent country but travel is difficult with inferior roads in the most mountainous regions. Travel accommodations are also adequate at best in these areas. To find a lodging of the quality of grand hotel ushba in such a remote location was a complete surprise. The setting is magnificent and the entire valley in which it is located is utterly charming.richard, one of the owners, is one of the most gracious men you will ever meet. He is a fine cook and knows every cultural detail about the area. He is therefore a great source of knowledge for all your sightseeing expeditions whether they be where to hike or where to find beautiful frescoes in early churches in the valley. The food was simply delicious and always elegantly served with many artistic touches like silver candlesticks. The hotel is very small and draws an international clientele. It was also delightful chatting with the other guests. A three to four night stay is what is recommended here.

Room Tip: I would suggest booking a room in the newer building with a private bathroom,

Spent 4 amazing days at Hotel Ushba in August 2012. Went for really nice day-hikes and ate fabulous meals at the hotel. I would recommend everyone to stay at Ushba if they ever get the chance! Beautiful surroundings and breathtaking views.

Gorgeous setting in Becho valley before Mestia. Definitely the coziest beds we've enjoyed in Georgia. Food in the restaurant (half board offered) was fabulous! Wonderful setting & service. Hiking in the day time can't be beat.

We had one of the best holidays of our lives at this haven of peace and tranquility. The surrounding areas are so beautiful that you are separated from the daily grind in an instant. The trekking trails are clearly marked and one feels closer to nature as one keeps walking. The hotel offers a spectacular view of the mountain peaks around. There is a river flowing in the vicinity and it adds further charm to the surroundings.

The rooms at the hotel are decent and the hospitality is good. 'Kunda', the young mountain dog is charming and friendly :) - we loved it!

Although it is a long journey from the capital, the stay is worthwhile. We had a great stay at the hotel and hope to come back sometime soon!

In mid august 2012 we spent one week at the very unique hotel Ushba located one hour's drive from Mestia. Hotel Ushba is a story in itself. Its location in a completely unspoilt countryside with views to the Caucasus mountains snowy peaks, and with a typical Swaneti village as a neighbor, made ​​our stay a special experience. The experience of seeing farms where the hay was harvesting with a scythe and brought to the barn by leds pulled of oxen, brought one back to a bygone time where everything went slower.
We had chosen to stay with full board, which really can be recommended. A lovely breakfast including homemade yoghurt from one of the farms in the village. All meals were typical for the Svaneti region and the hot dishes were prepared on the wood stove in the kitchen, which was placed in connection to the restaurant, which appeared in a rustic but cozy local style.
Add to that, the staff was both exceptionally service-minded and committed, which ment that we had the perfect setting for a stay of nature experience, delicious lovcal food and and an excellent service from owners and the staff
We stayed in the Ushba suite where we had a direct look to the snowy peaks, really peace of mind.
It is a place where you can experience the simple and unspoiled nature as well as culture, and a place we definitely return to.

Room Tip: The Ushba suite is bright and has the best view to the mountains

the hotel is unique in Svanety with western standards . great food and hospitality. Its location can offer various type of outdoor activities.
Not to mention the view. It doesn't look real. It is not easy getting there but worth the hassle
