Great post, Yukti. Georgia is really catching up tourism-wise. I know so many people who visited over the past years – and each and everyone was just amazed. It’s very high on my list.
Wow, I really didn’t know much about Georgia or Tbilisi, but it’s clearly such a beautiful city! I love that you include options for all budgets, and I think I would be most tempted to stay in Avlabari. It looks so calm and authentic. The churches also look so stunning!
You would love cathedrals and churches here in Georgia as they are very ancient style and also very peaceful.
Tbilisi is a lovely town from all accounts. Have been hearing and reading a lot about this lovely place and hope we get to visit there. Your post is definitely an invaluable resource for planning a visit as accommodation forms one of the main areas on which we focus on during our travels. Nice to see that you have curated a complete range of hotels from budget to high-end. We would love to stay near the historic city centre when we do get there.
You would love this place and thanks for finding this post useful.
Tbilisi certainly seems to be a great destination, that we’ve just added to our bucket list. All the hotels here look awesome. We’re keeping your post for when we plan to visit Tbilisi. Thanks a lot for this list!
You would love this place and even the hotels too.
Such a great list of hotels to choose from, I would definitely lean towards a hotel in the Historic City Centre, I didn’t realise Tbilisi was such a beautiful city. Its definitely on my bucket list now.
Tbilisi is really beautiful city with loving Georgian people. You would love this place, Sally.
I heard that Tibilisi is a must visit, now i know why – especially The Historic City Centre I should put it to my 2020 list, and thanks for hotel recommendations
I would definitely choose staying in Second neighbourhood as I like bigger rooms and wouldn’t be too happy with the crowd of the first neighborhood. Guess I will have to stay in more than one hotel to visit entire Tbilisi nas stay near the attractions. Great list and certainly helpful.
You would love the second neighborhood too as there are many luxury and boutique hotels with nice shopping nearby.
To me the Historic City Centre is undoubtedly the best place to stay in Tbilisi. The area itself is beautiful and lively as well, close to all the top places to visit in the city and certainly has an amazing architecture. For me, the old part of cities is always the most attractive, especially in Europe, with its cobbled stone streets and patio cafes.
I too love the historic city centers of Europe as they have authentic and funky vibes with all outdoor restaurants.
Georgia is fast becoming one of the coveted destinations for travellers. It is also high on my list. Well, as for stay in Tbilisi, we are spoilt for choices. I would probably stay at the old town, historic city centre. I love ancient architecture, old buildings and when I visit cities, I love staying at crowded centres. A city is known by its people and a place like old town will be the perfect place. What do you think? Avlabari also looks great. Infact, all the places are just as wonderful. It will be a tough choice.
And I am totally intrigues by 8000 year old wine making technique. Need to plan a visit soon.
Georgia is high on my list and I have had some very useful information from your posts around this beautiful country. Tbilisi is a beautiful city and the mix of cultures that reflect on the architecture does attract me for sure. I always try and stay central as this gives you an advantage where you don’t spend a lot of time travelling and use it looking around and experiencing the electric atmosphere which is in the centre. Similarly as you suggested this is the best located place in Tbilisi and walking distance from your hotel. I would love to try the Wyndham as I have stayed in a few and you do pay a bi more but the service and quality is top notch. Thanks for sharing
I’ve always had Tbilisi on the list as a place I’d love to visit. I think I’d definitely go for the old historic buildings in Avlabari. It’s great to have a run down of the different neighbourhood and what they are all like. Looking forward to my visit.
I have never been to Georgia, but this looks like a beautiful place
Another place on my very long wish list, Tbilisi is somewhere I think I will love. Your guide to neighbourhoods and hotel recommendations is very handy. I think the historic old centre or Avlabari appeal to me most.
Good to know you loved Avlabari the most and also the views of historic Tbilisi from here are worth from your hotel room.
I have never been to Georgia but been seeing it quite a bit lately and am very tempted to give it a visit in the near future. Such a great detailed post. Selecting a place to stay is so important. I find that where you stay can make or break your trip. the elegant hotels in the Freedom Square area look ideal. This post will make selecting a place to stay so much easier.
Thanks Joella for finding this post useful and yes Freedom square is also an ideal location to select the stay as it is close to old and new town.
We always opt for the historic center in any city if we can find a good place to stay. You have certainly provided lots of options for consideration. Did you stay in every hotel you list, and if so, which was your favorite in the historic center?
Thank you for this detailed list. Choosing a hotel and a location is always important when travelling to a place for the first time. I would go for the historic centre in Tbilissi!
You would love historic place of Tbilisi.
8000 year old wine making technique! I would love to see this! The old town architecture is beautiful! Between the colorful building and all the shopping, I’m sure this would be a wonderful trip! Freedom Square I would also love to see in person!
What a gorgeous city. The Old Town really appeals to me, being overlooked by the castle. Wandering around at night with the lights on would be wonderful. This is a great list for booking a trip to Tbilisi, thank you.
The number of hotels in Tbilisi is pretty impressive for a city where tourism has just booming recently. I see at least 4 world’s known hotel chains in the list. With all the great things to do and places to visit in Tbilisi, it’s no wonder I guess. I like how you organized the post with hotels ranges from high end to budget, followed by tourist attractions and reasons to stay in each district.
Thanks for finding this post useful for selecting hotels in Tbilisi, Georgia.
This is a great guide for those visiting Tbilisi. I am always looking into so many factors when choosing a hotel in a place I have never been to, and especially when traveling with kids. Rustaveli Street seems so cute and cozy in the photo. Although, Avlabari area might attract me with all those old and historic buildings.
Thanks for finding this guide useful and yes all districts looks worth staying.
Wow, Georgia looks really cool, I’d especially like to visit the historic area of Tbilisi. Some nice looking places to stay too especially the one with the view of Freedom Square
The freedom square is also a great place to stay as it has vibrant vibes.
I would choose the third neighborhood on Freedom Square, walking distance to both the Old HIstoric center and the shopping!
I too loved Freedom square as it has access to both the neighborhoods in Tbilisi.
Given a choice my pick would be Mtatsminda for its scenic view and strategic location. I am more of a nature person and would love to explore it that way even if staying in the heart of the city. Tbilisi is high on my bucket list of places to be visited .
Great post .
Mtastsminda is truly a natural wonder and if you are nature loving person, then you would surely love it.
Great article. This post brings backs memories, as tbilisi was the first city in which my girlfriend and I traveled. We had a great stay but the stay could have been better. I am pleased to see your mentions as those were all the places that we visited during our time and we loved it. Glad that you mentioned that Georgia has some great wines too.
Glad to know after reading this post, you revived your memories of Georgia and yes the wines of Georgia are famous and unique too.
Geogria is one of those countries which I think is next on my list to hit up. Havent even started planning the trip yet but this hotel guide is very useful, so I have bookmarked this page for future reference. thank you 🙂
Thanks for finding this post useful.
I LOVE that this guide is so well organized! Georgia is one of those places that I’m dying to visit, but feel super overwhelmed by; I would not even know where to start. This really lays everything out in such a comprehensive manner and is such a great resource for planning our trip there! We are looking to visit my husband’s homeland of Armenia and would definitely do this trip alongside that! You had me at wine lol!
You would love this place and even wine too. Armenia and Georgia are neighboring countries and therefore you can club together and visit both places.
WOW – it looks like such a beautiful city of visit. Love the colors and the old style architecture. When I go, I definitely will be staying in the old part of the city. That vibe definitely sounds like it’s for me!
You would love that part.
What a wonderful guide! Georgia looks amazing, thank you for sharing all these amazing tips
Thanks for finding it useful
I’m embarrassed to admit Georgia has never been super high on my list, but now I really want to go! It looks beautiful! Rustaveli Street looks so picturesque. Definitely moving Georgia up higher on my bucket list! Thank you!
Many people neglect Georgia or do not consider it for traveling but it is really worth visiting place.
Such a helpful guide! I have never been to Tbilisi and I would really like to but unfortunately I have no plans to visit soon… Maybe 2020!! If I do, I’ll make sure to refer to this great post – it is very complete and I love that you listed so many places to stay.
Thanks Jenny for finding this post useful.
A fascinating part of the world I have yet to visit. I would enjoy staying in Tbilisi old city, in the historic center. I like to be walking distance to most things, and to explore the main attractions there, such as the fort. I love your photo of the old city centre.
You would love old city center and thanks for liking the photo.
Oh wow! The first picture looks like some old mansion in India! The similarities are too many!! Haha… 8000 yr old wine making techniques? Now, that’s very tempting. As a wine lover, I need to visit Georgia!
Staying in the historic city centre with a window or terrace view of Narikala fortress would be enchanting! I had a similiar airbnb in Athens with view of Parthenon. Its just magical. To be able to stay in an ancient style building like the one in the first pic would be just perfect!
Mtatsminda looks nice too. With a stay up on the hill with a view of the whole city would be perfect too!
I too agree living in mansion of Soviet style house is worth here. Though they may lack some modern amenities and are surrounded by narrow streets but the views are splendid.
We have never been to Georgia. And I would not know where to start to pick a hotel. We do love to be in the historic centre of cities so that we can easily walk around. Although the smaller rooms sometimes makes it a little tough to spread out and relax. But the elegant hotels in the Freedom Square area might be more along my line. Especially with easy access to both the new and old town. Thanks for providing a great overview of the different areas in Tbilisi. A great reference if we plan a visit.
Thanks for finding this post useful.
Brings back memories of my trip to Georgia. Good summary of main areas. The main Tbilisi sights are within walking distance of each other but I found the transport areas (bus & train stations) so far from the centre.
I too agree with you that historical things are nearby city area but other transport is far from tourist areas.
What a helpful guide! I don’t have any plans to visit Tbilisi soon but will definitely refer back to post when I’m ready to visit. It looks like a really interesting city.
Thanks for finding this guide useful.
Thanks! This is very helpful as I will be visiting Georgia next week. 🙂
Thanks for finding it useful. Hopefully you find your favorite stay from this list of hotels in Tbilisi.
