“good hotel”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

Good hotel, good service, bit expensive, good location.

In the first day of year 2014, went down to restaurant to have breakfast at 11:00 AM. No way, service closed at 10:30. I said it was new year last night and breakfast should extended to 12:00 at least as everybody slept late. Receptionist replied me: "we have rukes" :)

Bathroom was nice so the hot water, especially in cold Tbilisi night...

Room Tip: all rooms good. Some larger (like room #9)

Very helpful staff. We enjoyed the breakfast. Our room was a bit wedge-shaped and so narrow that only one person could squeeze between the bed and the desk. Otherwise we liked staying here. Comfortable bed. Bathroom on the small side but not objectionable.

I stayed 4 nights in the Hotel City whilst exploring Tbilisi and the surrounding area.

My flight got in very early in the morning but the hotel were happy to store my luggage until later in the afternoon when I could check in. Check in was quick and easy and there is a doorman on hand to help you with your luggage if required.

The room was quite big although the bathroom was a little on the small size. A good sized double bed with comfortable pillows and and quilt allowed me to have some very comfortable nights sleep during my stay. The rooms are equipped with flat screen TV and minibar but lacked tea/coffee making facilities and room safe which are pretty much standard in most hotels these days. My room was bright although this was down to the lighting rather than the small windows which had no view to speak of. That said, this didn't bother me as I spent very little time in the room with the delights of Tbilisi calling me. The only slight gripe I had about the hotel was the standard of soundproofing with the rooms. A screaming baby kept me awake (and woke me early) on night and corridor conversations easily drifted into the room.

The staff were friendly and helpful and mainly spoke pretty good English which made communication easy.

One previous occupant moaned about Hotel City being a smokers hotel - I don't know where they got this from. I didn't see anyone smoking in the hotel during my stay and didn't smell the unmistakable stench of cigarette smoke either so I certainly would let this put anyone off.

The breakfast was fine (despite others moans). Whilst reasonably basic it had both cooked and continental options and the food was tasty and well presented; the porridge was especially nice!

I would happily return to Hotel City should I be visiting Tbilisi again.

We stayed for 2 nights in this small hotel. It is 50 mt. to Freedom Square. Great location to Old City, Rustaveli and all touristic places. The rooms do not have any view, the service and the breakfast could be better. The terrace is very good. If you find good price you can stay but above 100$ is not feasible.

Reviewed 16 September 2013

Last year I've spotted only two minor issues with this otherwise extremely nice hotel - one of them is hard to undo, the rooms, while very nice and cozy, are on a smaller side, unfortunately, and especially small are the bathrooms. The second was that the advertised rooftop terrace was not functioning, and hurray, this one is solved, nice terrace with great views on the beautiful old Tbilisi and further on, is there, all yours. To me, this is enough to make it an excellent place from a very good one, as I have graded it last year.

Small, cosy hotel in the center of Tbilisi, near Independece square and Shota Rustaveli street. Hotel located on small narrow side street. Neighbor building across the road is Thai erotic massage...

This is a SMOKERS hotel. Please do not believe any other info. It is allowed to smoke in EVERY room of the hotel, in the lobby and in the restaurant. Rooms are ventilated after each guest, but of course the cigarette smell stays in carpet/ bed lining / walls etc. Night Porter WAS SMOKING LIKE CHIMNEY IN THE LOBBY, and all the smoke was coming IN EACH AND EVERY ROOM OF THE HOTEL!!! When we asked him to smoke outside, he refused, claiming that smoking is allowed in the hotel...

So please be seriously warned about the smoking problem. If you are a non-smoker (like myself), your stay would be a disaster!

Hotel has 19 rooms located over 5 floors. Each room is equipped with air conditioning and free internet WI-FI access. Air conditioning units are quite cheap models by Hyundai (separate unit in each room), which dry the air while cooling it, making it almost impossible to breeze. If you decide to open the window - you willbe surprised by the noise coming from the street (being located in city center the are drunken turists and locals, shouting at each other, singing songs etc till about 2 in the morning. There are also police cars driving around and using their signal and loudspeakers to tell the drunken locals to come down (which everyone in the radius of 5 kilometers hears as well)...

I stayed in room number 18, on 4th floor, below the roof terrace. As terrace closing quite late, each night a hotel worker was moving furniture on the terrace, preparing it for the next morning. He was doing it between 1 and 2:30 in the morning.... Which made it impossible to sleep...

I gave some clothes to wash and iron and asked reception to deliver them back the next day. So after having trouble falling asleep because of the noise, a nice girl from reception calls me the next morning (on Saturday) at 08:00 IN THE MORNING to tell me that my clothes are ready for pick-up!!! I asked her why she did not call me at 06:00 to tell me this info...?

Hotel has NO PARKING facility, there are also no parking garages available anywhere near the hotel. So I had huge problem parking a rental car.

Breakfast is quite poor. Only some cheese / ham, yogurt, tea / coffee and water Mellon... Breakfast room has only 8 small tables and is located in the basement. Once again it is allowed to smoke inside and the WORKERS ARE SMOKING there... I saw a barkeeper enjoying a cigarette in the at the bar while people were having a breakfast... Absolutely ridiculous....

So all in all, I warn you to stay away from this place.

Tbilisi is FANTASTIC CITY defenetly worth a visit!!!

Room Tip: ALL ROOMS ARE SMOKING!!! If you are a non-smoker - it's a disaster!!!
