Beautiful panoramic view of Tbilisi at sunset, Georgia, Europe


An area well known for its natural thermal springs, some of which now feed the dome-shaped bathhouses in Tbilisi’s old town.

The largest city in Georgia by a considerable distance, Tbilisi can justifiably claim to be the heart of the country. Squeezed between mountain ranges, the city fills the Mtkvari river valley. Having been the capital of Georgia for more than 1,500 years, in some form or another, Tbilisi is rich in history and well worth spending a few days.

Why we like Tbilisi

Tbilisi’s history is wonderfully diverse and its mix of cultures, at various times, means that you can now choose between a mosque, a synagogue, Armenian or Georgian churches and a new Roman Catholic church to visit during your stay. Its national museum boasts an extraordinary collection of pre-Christian gold and silver, as well as collections of archaeology, history and ethnography.

What to do in Tbilisi?

There is a lot to see in this interesting city, from witnessing a Georgian Orthodox service at the Sioni Cathedral or visiting the Mtatsminda, Holy Mountain, and St Davids Cemetery, where many leading Georgian cultural figures have been buried. Not only a cultural treasure trove Tbilisi also has some gorgeous hotels, the food is excellent and music and poetry play a big part in day to day life.

Rooms Hotel Tbilisi

Once a publishing house, every effort has been made to preserve the history of the original building, while creating a boutique hotel in a creative area of Tbilisi. Historic features include high ceilings and warehouse-style windows, with an interior design harking back to New York in the 1930s.

Leather, velvet, reclaimed wood, handmade wallpaper and local artwork combine to create an elegant yet bohemian feel. Built over eight floors, the 125 rooms and suites are spacious and full of character. All have views of either the city or gardens and those on the fifth floor have terraces with views over the city.
