The place is a bit out of town, in a quiet residential area with some cozy restaurants nearby. It's clean, with a simple but very good breakfast, and above all lovely hosts ready to help with everything. You'll feel at home here, indeed a great feeling. The stairs are a bit hard

How accessible is the hotel from the airport?
Most people from the west will fly to Kutaisi airport because Wizzair which flies there is half the price of Georgian which flies to Tbilisi. You can also fly to Tbilisi from Dubai, Moscow and Istanbul on airlines which are less costly than Georgian. From Tbilisi airport there are Ford Transit minivans to Tbilisi station. This will take you to the main minibus station, which is two stops from Rustaveli on the metro. This would be both the easiest and the cheapest way to get to the British house hotel. There is a bus which runs up Chovalidze past the hotel and another which skirts the hill behind the hotel. But it is impossible to get hold of a bus map and none are posted even at the bus station. I do not recall the bus numbers. From Kutaisi, there is a Georgian bus, which meets every Wizzair flight. It will take you to Tbilisi in about five hours or kutais in half an hour. You are likely to be dumped alongside a freeway in Tbilisi with speeding traffic in the small hours, because wizzair mostly arrives at night. From there you should ask a Georgian to phone the Russian version of Uber, which will charge you 4/5 Lari ( £2/$2). If you hail one in the street the driver will demand 50 Lari. You can do the same from Tbilisi airport, which is a half hour from the hotel and should costs 10-15 Lari. But you will certainly be swindled unless you use the app. I reported this information in my original report, because it is vital, but it was edited.

As I said in my report, breakfast is Georgian. Although porridge will be familiar to most english-speakers as will raspberries ( provided at my special request) 0melettes and blinis are international but the potato cakes are Georgian.

Is it close to Rustaveli st? Is a boutique one or not?
About 2 mins. walk from Rustaveli - but Rustaveli is a very long street. About 10-15 mins. walk from Freedom Square. It is a boutique hotel.

"The apartment is fantastic if it is available. Otherwise you will still do fine with the main hotel building (go for the top floor)"
"great breakfast, excellent service, English speaking staff"
"If you are staying for more than 3 days...ask for the apartment..."
"No elevators, so might want to choose the 2 rooms on the first floor."
"Rooms to the street are rather quiet when the window is closed."
US$66 - US$122 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
