From the very first moment you get in contact with Betsy's you will enjoy their absolute service minded staff. When you arrive, you enjoy the nice and modern hotel. The room I had (#604) was splendid, wit a balcony overlooking the whole city.
The breakfast in the morning needs its own praise. They do eggs in whatever way you want, even poached eggs on toast, and you can enjoy your meal outside on the terrace. The breakfast area has, like the rest of the hotel, a fast and wireless internet connection (free of charge) witch allows you to surf your local newspaper along with your morning coffee. The breakfast staff is pleasantly present and always smiling.
The star speaks fluently English, with no exceptions. I even heard them give service in German to some guests.
They are also flexible whenever you would like to make change in your plans, for instance leave the hotel for some days. Then they without discussion withdraw nights from your bill. Their flexibility and friendliness is worth a whole lot.
Concerning the location of the hotel, it is a steep walk up from the big Mc Donald's Restaurant (stay away from the McDondalds restaurant, but choose the Georgian Cuisine just across the street, that's great). Taxis are cheap, but the walk is better. And for the early birds of you travellers: get up early in the morning, turn left after the hotel gate. After 60-70 meters you'll find a steep footpath heading for the TV tower on Mtatsminda. Put on some good shoes, and head for the top. It is really steep, and there are a lot of track choices. As long as you head for the tower, you'll find your way to the top. You can also walk the cobblestone stairs from Pantheon graveyard nearby. That is easier, but steep enough. There, you will also meet and greet the old Tbilisians who are old just because they spend their mornings like this.
I have only one negative remark to my stay, and that is that they allow people to smoke in the reception area and especially in the bar. I chose to stay out of the bar because of this.
When you get back to the hotel, you may find Jansug Kakhidzes song "The Moon over Mtatsminda" on YouTube and enjoy the fact that you are there right now. Enjoy Betsy's. It is great value, and I can almost promise that you will be happy.
