Where To Stay In Tbilisi: Best Budget Friendly Accomodations

I have been living in Tbilisi for 2 years. The most frequently asked question to me is accommodation in Tbilisi, but since I always stayed at home, I did not have enough information about it. I have been working on this subject recently and finally I prepared a list of budget friendly accommodations in Tbilisi. Along with Tbilisi neighborhoods overview, I will share a selection of best budget freindly hotels, airbnb homes and hostels to stay in Tbilisi.  I hope this insider guide helps you find the perfect place to stay in Tbilisi.

First of all, I would like to mention very briefly about the regions in Tbilisi, so that you can search for a hotel knowing which region you want to stay, even if you do not choose a hotel from my list. After explaining the regions, I will continue with my hotel, hostel and airbnb home suggestions in Tbilisi. I want to start with Old Tbilisi; this is the most touristic place of the city. The main places to see in Tbilisi are here, as well as many cafes and bars. Sololaki is a neighborhood between the back streets of Old Tbilisi and Freedom Square. It was a neighborhood where rich people lived during the Russian Empire, so it is possible to see historical houses built in the Art Nouveau style in this area. Abanotubani is the region where the baths in Tbilisi are located. This place is very central since it is right next to Old Tbilisi Square. Avlabari is located on the other side of the river across the Abanotubani region. You can easily reach places to visit from here, too. Rustaveli Boulevard and its surroundings is a very active and public transportation is easy here. You can also reach Old Tbilisi on foot in 15-20 minutes. There are also museums and opera houses here. The upper part of Rustaveli Boulevard is called Mtatsminda. This place is not very central, but you can easily reach to Rustaveli Boulevard by walking. After Mtatsminda, Vera comes, there is no place to visit as a tourist attraction, but there are nice cafes here. Vera’s neighbor, Vake, has also nothing touristy, but there are shops, boutiques, nice cafes and restaurants. Opposite Rustaveli Boulevard there is Marjanishvili on the other side of the river. Davit Aghmashenebeli Boulevard, the main street of this region, consists of completely renovated buildings. Although it is far from tourist places, it is one of the preferred areas for accommodation, there are quite a lot of cafes and restaurants options. Saburtalo is a region where new residences and shopping malls are built, there is nothing touristic but it is easily accessible by public transport.
