Rooms Hotel Kazbegi

A former Soviet Brutalist building, ensconced deep within the Caucasus Mountains and transformed into a modern-day masterpiece where alpine chic meets cutting-edge design, Rooms Hotel Kazbegi is the last thing you’d expect to find in the Georgian countryside. But we love to be surprised. Here, they take the concept of ‘a room with a view’ and run with it with 155 rooms framed by floor to ceiling windows looking out over the surrounding landscapes. From the subterranean spa to the open-plan restaurant, bar and lounge, and even the casino, there’s no avoiding the view here.


A three-hour drive directly north of Tbilisi, or a slightly zippier helicopter flight, Kazbegi makes for a quaint alpine retreat with some knock-out hikes and biking trails. Rooms Hotel is framed by the spectacular backdrop of the Caucasus Mountains with rooms looking out to either Mount Kazbek and the Tsminda Sameba Church or the surrounding forests and woodland. Spend the next few days discovering remote villages and untouched landscapes either by foot, traditional horseback – or the more modern quad bike.

Your Room

Honouring the alpine location, the 155 rooms bring a sense of mountain charm to an otherwise rustic minimalism. Natural materials such as reclaimed woods and weathered brick accents are warmed by cognac-coloured leathers and the sunlight that streams in through the floor to ceiling windows that seemingly dominate every space. Slumbering the night away in a vintage bed before opening your eyes onto a breathtaking panorama of natural beauty? Now, that’s something worth waking up for.

Why we like it

Looking for a way to enjoy all the stunning scenery without ever having to leave the comforts of the hotel? Rooms Hotel has the solution. A sweeping terrace that runs the entire length of the hotel and basks in the warmth of the sun provides the perfect vantage point. Better still, it doubles as a fabulous spot for apres-ski drinks in winter and alfresco lunches in summer.
