Riding the wake of its wildly successful Kazbegi outpost, the Rooms Hotel group continues to champion Georgia’s contemporary design movement with its latest feat of hospitality, Rooms Hotel Tbilisi. A complete departure from its Caucasus sister, this new offshoot combines a distinct 1930s New York vibe with an Old World Tbilisi charm, embodying the raw post-industrial and intellectual eclecticism of its Vera address.
Occupying eight stories of a long abandoned industrial building, Rooms Hotel Tbilisi was sensitively restored by Adjara Arch Group to capture the raw essence of the former publishing house and simultaneously embody an authentically bohemian-chic atmosphere characteristic of Tbilisi. This eclectic, retro vibe can be felt throughout the 140 rooms and suites, via the original architectural detailing of exposed brick and metal infusions, the uniquely modern hand painted and silkscreened wallpapers, the custom-made leather furniture pieces, the freestanding claw-foot tubs on rich wooden floors, and the old-school Marshall Stanmore speakers, which emit carefully selected music for a positive emotional experience. Guests have the choice between three room types outfitted in hues of burnt orange, olive, and marigold: the Urban Queen Rooms overlooking Chovelidze Street, the Garden View Rooms overlooking the central gardens, or the Signature King Room boasting the most space. All feature medieval chandeliers, flat screen HD televisions with web browsing, wireless Internet access, en-suite bathrooms, and walls of windows revealing the buzzing local scene outside.
The common areas within Rooms Hotel Tbilisi are not so much corridors as they are galleries for original Georgian art and curated vintage pieces. This is most apparent in the lounge, where an open fireplace, leather and custom furniture, and faded Persian rugs provide a welcome reprieve. In the Kitchen Restaurant and bar, however, the atmosphere takes on a distinct New York City rough-but-refined boldness, where exposed brick, artisan wood furniture, contemporary light fixtures, and industrial open floor plan interiors set the stage for handcrafted cocktails by Big Apple-trained mixologists and a rotating menu of nouveau American specialties, sustainably grown, locally farmed, and wildly foraged by Executive Chef Francesco Manalo. Between the honest cuisine and the long communal tables, the restaurant begs for socializing and lingering from its guests.
Located in the lively Vera neighborhood, Rooms Hotel Tbilisi offers a refreshing local experience. This is a place of rich cultural and intellectual legacy, where rare museums, stunning churches, culinary melting pots, and a surprising crafts heritage are in limitless supply. And while situated outside the bustling city center, the hotel is still within easy access to all of the capital city’s must-see landmarks.Request Information
