Tbilisi, the beautiful capital of Georgia, is a busy one! With over 2 million inhabitants and a recent rise in tourism, it can be slim pickens when it comes to finding good accommodation. A quick search on Booking.com will tell you the same, that’s why I’ve put together a list of great places to sleep in Tbilisi.
What you should know to get a good night’s sleep in Tbilisi
There are a few things to keep in mind when you want to sleep in Tbilisi, the first being able to find a reasonably quiet place to rest your head. Tbilisi is crowded and the traffic is beyond crazy! Listed below you’ll find all sorts of accommodation, from hotels to hostels and airbnb’s. Keep in mind that if you stay in Old Tbilisi, there’s a very small chance of not hearing the traffic at all.
The other one is location, as always. 2 million inhabitants might not make it the biggest city you’ve ever visited, however, Tbilisi is not wide, with a length of 70 km it’s mostly long. Still public transport is quite good, so make sure you are close to a metro station when staying outside of the old town.
The Cuckoo’s Nest
Central, beautifully decorated and fitted with everything you need for your stay in Tbilisi! The Cuckoo’s nest is an Airbnb accommodation owned by super host Goglik. The spacious studio has a private bathroom, double bed and a magical view on the Narikala fortress.

Art Hotel Winery 1896
A great place to get away from it all while still staying somewhat close to the city center. Located in the large garden of a former winery, Art Hotel Winery 1896 is a peaceful place to enjoy late-night drinks and utter relaxation. Friendly hostess Mariam is just a very big plus.
Centrally located on Rustaveli Avenue, yet quietly tucked away in a garden you’ll find Hotel Central, a reasonably priced hotel which I loved because of the staff. Not only are they incredibly helpful, I found the breakfast ladies so sweet that I would return at any time!
Admittedly not the greatest name for a hotel, still Rooms Hotel is just wonderful! Centrally located, friendly staff and nicely decorated. What more do you want out of your stay?
No12 Boutique Hotel
Another beauty in central Tbilisi is the NO12 Boutique Hotel. I’ll admit that I love boutique hotels anyway, however this specific hotel I cannot keep my eyes off! Usually the decoration in Georgian hotels in not up too Western standards, here I could just sit and look around for days.
Tucked away in one of the quiet streets behind Rustaveli avenue you’ll find Betsy’s, a cute hotel providing everything you need. Betsy’s is famous for quiet sleeps and exquisite staff.
Envoy Hostel & Tours
Probably one of the most famous hostels in Tbilisi, not just because of the fun atmosphere and comfortable beds, but because of their range of tours and activities. Many people use their transfer package to Yerevan, Armenia, which is not only very affordable, but a lot of fun, too!
Vinotel Boutique Hotel
Put Vino in the name of your hotel and you have my interest! However, the Vinotel Boutique Hotel didn’t necessarily have to do that, as it is gorgeous anyway! Guests love the atmosphere, beautiful arches of the former winery and the friendly staff.
Citadel Narikala Hotel
Located in the heart of Old Tbilisi you’ll find the Citadel Narikala Hotel. Although one might think location is the reason why this hotel is so popular (and it is!), it’s actually the staff that’ll make your stay worthwhile.
Pushkin 10 Hostel
Located in the Mtatsminda neighborhood, Pushkin 10 is everything you need for socializing and peaceful sleeps at the same time. Travelers love it because of the location as well as the many facilities the hostel has to offer.
Fabrika is one of Tbilisi’s main attractions anyway, why not sleep in it? The cultural center offers bars, artist studios, shops, educational institutions, restaurants and a hostel. Sleeping at Fabrika means resting your head in a well-designed space while being able to enjoy all these facilities next to your new home.
