Stamba Hotel, Tbilisi

Nestled in the heart of a city that seemingly gets trendier by the day, Stamba Hotel is our must-stay. A hotel with stunning design and good times at its core, Stamba has taken a cold and harsh Brutalist building and turned it into something quite spectacular. Every bit the trendsetter as the city that lies beyond its 20th-century publishing house facade, the 42 rooms bring a quirky, hipster-esque luxury to Tbilisi. Service has not been sacrificed to design though, with a friendly team on hand to bring you the warmth of Georgian hospitality.


It would be difficult to find a location more central than Stamba Hotel. Tucked away at one end of the main avenue of Rustaveli, Tbilisi’s iconic sights lie just a short stroll away. From the National Opera to Freedom Square and underground bars to charming restaurants, Stamba Hotel is an enviable doorstop onto the city. Plus, at just a half-hour drive from the airport, it’s convenient too.

Your Room

Cutting-edge design without compromising on comfort, the 42 guestrooms at Stamba Hotel are a treat for all the senses. Whether it’s the cloud-like king-size bed or the gilded free-standing brass bathtubs and showers, a good night’s sleep is guaranteed. Choose between rooms that overlook the tumbling courtyard garden below or a corner suite backing onto the inhouse jungle. No matter where you look, the design of Stamba steals the show.

Why we Like it

Stamba is all about its public spaces. Designed to create a natural flow that both draws in and guides guest around the property, each space is more jaw-dropping than the last. From the art deco elegance of Casino Aviator to the in-house chocolaterie coffee shop and grand Cafe Stamba, the hotel caters to every whim and desire. Though the real crowning glory? The five-story-high jungle atrium of a lobby, topped with a glass-bottomed pool. Yes, you read that right. Stamba is showstopping design at its most outlandish.
