Georgia’s capital Tbilisi is a thinking person’s heaven. A rich cultural and intellectual heritage means the city offers rare museums and galleries, stunning churches, divine cuisine, and an enviable crafts heritage. To top it off, the country is set to create a new design legacy—thanks to Rooms Hotel group, which is leading the local contemporary movement of marrying Georgian tradition with modernism. The first Design Hotels™ member in the country, Rooms Hotel Kazbegi in the Caucasus Mountains is vastly different from the newly opened Rooms Hotel Tbilisi. Located in the intellectual neighborhood of Vera, the Tbilisi cleverly incorporates the building’s history as a publishing house into its design elements, while also honoring its cultural past with many art and music events. Rife with regal sophistication, the 8-floor property boasts 125 rooms and suites, combining distinct 1930s New York vibes with old-world Tbilisi charm. Rich, fragrant leather, mood lighting, velvety textures, and carefully selected sounds fill the spacious fireplace lounge and cocktail bar—home to international guests and fashionable Georgians alike. With a clear emphasis on all things “taste”, the nouveau American restaurant “The Kitchen” concocts a delectable weekly menu using locally sourced ingredients.

The 125 rooms and suites are a combination of Ugulava’s 1930s New York vision and old-world Tbilisi charm, featuring rich leathers, local artwork, custom furniture, and vintage Georgian pieces. With a bohemian chic vibe, expect to see dark wood floors, leather-upholstered bedheads, or iron bedsteads, in short a hip, urban, mid-century, lived-in (in a good way) post-industrial aesthetic. Each room is sensibly adorned with a uniquely modern line of handmade wallpapers featuring hand-painted textures and silkscreened graphic patterns. The rooms either have views of the bustling Chovelidze Street or the garden, while those on the fifth floor have terraces.
A bewitching hodgepodge of styles attested to long-ago occupiers: Persian and Ottoman domes neighboring Soviet towers and Art Nouveau mansions. Brutalist monuments and Byzantine arches gave way to sleek modern villas and row houses with ornately carved wooden balconies…
As time passes, what endures are the moments that moved your soul or altered your mind. Take a look at the Original Experiences that await at Rooms Hotel Tbilisi, and begin dreaming up your next extraordinary trip.
Forward-thinking entrepreneur Temur Ugulava is forging a new future for hospitality in Georgia. With a unique, avant-garde approach to design—combining traditional with a contemporary—each property by the Adjara Group is a proud showcase of a new Georgia. With his first, wildly successful Rooms Hotel Kazbegi still luring guests to the Caucasus Mountain range, Ugulava now has two properties in Tbilisi—Rooms Hotel Tbilisi and Stamba Hotel—that are a focal point for a new wave of thinkers, artists, and designers who are slowly reclaiming the capital’s Vera district as a local cultural hub for the 21st century.
