Old Town (Altstadt) Tbilisi, Tbilisi

4.6
At the heart of the capital, Old Town (Altstadt) Tbilisi boasts an eclectic mix of new and ancient buildings in a rainbow of colors, set against the looming bulk of Narikala Fortress. Devastated by an invading army charging north from Persia in 1795, much of the area was painstakingly rebuilt and restored in the mid-19th century while the country was under Russian rule (although many buildings and churches dating from the 5th century still exist here). Notice the carved wooden balconies on large houses that hang over the pavement as you stroll the narrow streets and alleyways in search of an ancient church or two. Other places of interest include the area's popular sulfur baths. Plan your Old Town (Altstadt) Tbilisi visit and explore what else you can see and do in Tbilisi using our Tbilisi trip planner .

  • Be sure to visit! We spent 3 days here, wandering the streets, cafes and churches. It is very beautiful atmosphere! So many beautiful balconies, all different. But so harmoniously with each other. Immediately the sulfur baths, well worth a visit too!

  • It was great chance for us to walk in old town and buy some wine and souvenirs while visiting old places in the town  more »
  • To feel the atmosphere of the city, his soul, do not over pojsto "go" in the old town, you have to live in it, wake up in the morning, to feel the scents, to catch the morning sounds ... We have done so. And every time have discovered something new. Why else go to Tbilisi-live in new buildings, as in normal metropolis to every day on the bus to enter the geographical neocherchennyj the old town?

  • A very nice hotel. Had good breakfast. The only thing I don't like was the size of the room. I booked a standard single room, and this was extremely small. Although it was equipped with all the amenities that one would need, but it was small.
  • Everything was so grate! Personal is helpful. Only not massage service. And a bit expensive
  • Excellent facilities and service. The hotel is one of the most modern Mercure i have seen to date (compared with over 20 visited is Europe) The service and breakfast is excellent. The hotel also has a very good sky bar, with nice views during the day light hours and very good love music during the evening. The drinks as extras are also very well priced. The staff were attentive and friendly, with excellent room amenities. The wifi however was terrible and patchy. Really the only thing that let it down. However, I would still strongly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the city.
  • One of the best high class hotel with excellent location in Old Tbilisi for travelers.
  • Very nicely located hotel. Perfect rooftop bar and excellent service.

Where to stay in Tbilisi

Strung out alongside the Mtkvari River, Tbilisi's historical core and bustling city center offers an array of accommodation options. Choose the fortress hill, the more northern residential districts, or a main street in the center of the action. Large international chain hotels offer luxury options, complete with fine dining, air conditioning, and more. However, you can also choose from more economical, mid-level options located around Rustaveli Avenue and Tbilisi's old town. For the lowest cost, consider one of the ubiquitous hostels.
