This original hotel is located in the pulsating heart of Tbilisi, just a short walk from the many and varied cultural centres of Georgia, particularly in the city of Tbilisi.

Tbilisi lies on the banks of the Kura River and is surrounded by mountains. The best way of getting to know the city is on foot, and you can wander for hours through the old city of Tbilisi with its narrow alleys and large and beautiful houses.

Georgia’s capital is unique because it culturally merges both Asia and Europe, as well as the old and the modern. The

 variety of religions, museums, markets and superb restaurants form just part of what is available for your recreation.

The Tbilisi architecture combines local Georgian architecture with a strong Byzantine influence as well European / Russian, neoclassical and Middle-eastern architectural styles.

There are 33 different types of theatres in Tbisili.  Amongst the most important are the Griboedov Theatre or The Royal Quarter Theatre, the Marjanishvili State Drama Theatre, the Russian Drama Theatre, the Shota.

Rustaveli State Theatre Academy, The Tbisili Z. Paliashvili Opera and Ballet State Theatre.

The are twelve major museums in Tbisili, the important ones being:  The Shalva Amiranashvili Museum of Fine Arts, near Liberty Square, and the Simon Janashia Museum on Shota Rustaveli Avenue.  Other Tbisili museums include the Money Museum of the National Bank of Georgia which reviews the methods of payment in the area; the Tbilisi Open Air Museum of Ethnography which displays the Georgian way of life in various regions of the country; the Museum of Soviet Occupation, a new museum documenting the seven decades of Soviet rule in Georgia.

In addition, there are 22 private galleries and six exhibition venues which regularly present contemporary Georgian art.

This teeming city boasts quite a few western-style shops, cafés, restaurants, galleries, museums and a huge shopping mall – not forgetting Tbisili’s bath houses (they are called Hamam which means hot water) and resemble Turkish baths.  They can be found in different parts of the city, including in old Tbisili near the hot sulfur springs which feed a stream through the old city.
