13 Best Hotels in Tbilisi for Solo Travelers

Around 6 months ago, I decided to come and live alone in Tbilisi.

Because of my on-my-own adventure, I now know all the good hangout spots for solo travelers—and where you can go to make friends (or not, if that’s your preference).

So in this guide, I’ve used my incredible expertise and humility to bring you the 13 best hotels in Tbilisi for solo travelers.

My top recommendation is Fabrika, which is actually a hostel rather than a hotel. But if you want to make friends, it’s absolutely the best spot in the city.

In my picks, I’ve included a couple more hostels, but most of my selections are hotels. Among them all, I’ve given you quiet places, sociable places, and picks for all budgets.

Hop on your flight and come join the party!

Best Hotels and Hostels in Tbilisi for Solo Travelers

1. Fabrika – 2☆

✉️ 8 E. Ninoshvili Str., Chugureti

Okay, Fabrika isn’t quite a hotel. Instead, it’s a pretty upmarket hostel… but if you’re traveling solo in Tbilisi, you absolutely can’t overlook this place.

In fact, I can honestly say that Fabrika is the best hostel in Tbilisi for solo travelers!

The central part of Fabrika is both a massive hostel and a cafe. But in the grounds of Fabrika, there’s a big courtyard… and this courtyard is home to bars, restaurants, cafes, a record store, a barbershop (which is inside another bar), loads of hipsters, and some of the city’s most alluring evenings out.

So if you stay here, you have endless opportunities for making friends. If you like being all sociable when you travel solo, this is absolutely the best accommodation option in Tbilisi.

They have both dorm rooms and private rooms, and the whole place is always busy with tourists, locals, and long-term expats.

So my recommendation is to stop searching and head over to Fabrika to book your nights right now. I’m that confident you’ll love the place!

  • Airport shuttle? Yes

2. Communal Hotel Plekhanovi

✉️ 56 Egnate Ninoshvili Street, Chugureti

If you want to be close to Fabrika without actually staying in Fabrika, the Communal Hotel Plekhanovi is a great choice.

Although it’s nowhere near as sociable as its neighbor, it’s a good place to make some laid-back friends, and (as you’ve probably worked out from its name) it has a nice communal atmosphere.

Cozy, charming and well-decorated, it’s easy to feel at home here. It has a lovely shared terrace, and the staff are hugely friendly and helpful. You feel like part of the family here, rather than just a temporary guest.

The breakfast is filling, varied and tasty, with some nice local touches.

  • Location: Marjanishvili
  • Price range: $$
  • Airport shuttle? Yes
  • Pet-friendly? No
  • Pool(s)? No

3. Bude Hostel

✉️ 77 Ivane Javakhishvili Street, Chugureti

Also in Marjanishvili (and incidentally right beside my house, not that you probably care about that), Bude Hostel is great for making friends.

Because it’s small and cozy, you’ll always stumble upon the few other travelers who are staying here—there’s a shared kitchen, a shared courtyard, a top-floor terrace, and a BBQ area for grilling some meat with your brand-new buddies.

Again, the whole place is very homely and welcoming, and even the staff feel like friends.

And like the two other hostels we’ve featured on this list, it has a vaguely-hotel vibe—it’s clean, tidy, organized and high-end, and you don’t feel like you’re slumming it in a cut-price place.

  • Location: Marjanashvili
  • Price range: $
  • Airport shuttle? Yes
  • Pet-friendly? Yes
  • Pool(s)? No

4. Hotel Art Nebula

✉️ 71b Ivane Javakhishvili Street, Chugureti

Another option in the same district (yep, Marjanishvili is a fantastic neighborhood for solo travelers) Hotel Art Nebula is absolutely brimming with charm.

Only a couple of doors down from Bude Hostel, it’s a little more classy than its nearby neighbor. The pastel-hued rooms are modern, trendy and minimalistic, and the whole place is exceptionally clean and tidy.

But because there’s a shared kitchen, a bar, and even a little casino, it’s still a pretty good place for making friends.

The breakfast has some local foods, and it’s super tasty and filling. And best of all, the staff can help you to organize trips and tours to different parts of the nation.

  • Location: Marjanishvili
  • Price range: $$
  • Airport shuttle? Yes
  • Pet-friendly? No
  • Pool(s)? No

5. Hotel Majestic – 3☆

✉️ atskuri st 58 Isani Tbilisi

Next up, something a little different.

Most of the hotels we’ve featured on this list are in the heart of Tbilisi. But if you prefer overnighting outside the very central sprawl of the city, this is the best option for you.

It’s southeast of the city center, but you’re close to the neighborhood’s metro station… so you’re only ever a few minutes away from all the major action.

At Hotel Majestic, they offer the comfort of a laid-back affordable hotel, with some other unusual and appealing perks. There’s a shared garden and BBQ area, and there’s even a room with a jacuzzi!

This much comfort, elegance and luxury don’t usually come at this low of a price.

  • Location: Southeast of Avlabari
  • Stars: 3
  • Price range: $
  • Airport shuttle? Yes
  • Pet-friendly? No
  • Pool(s)? No

6. Friendship House

✉️ 21 Konstantine Eristavi Street Konstantine Eristavi Street

Alright, this isn’t the most sociable accommodation on the planet. But as you might have expertly deduced from the name of the place, it’s incredibly friendly—the staff are helpful and smiley, and because it’s quiet and quaint, it attracts a pleasant crowd.

If you want a relatively quiet stay, without partying or making hundreds of friends, this is one of the best hotels in Tbilisi for solo travelers. Homely and charming, it’s family-managed, and that’s exactly the way it feels.

Northwest of Hotel Majestic, this is high up on a hill above Avlabari metro station. So, again, it’s not right in the middle of the city, but it’s pretty close to all the action (and it has great views!).

  • Location: Avlabari
  • Price range: $
  • Airport shuttle? Yes
  • Pet-friendly? No
  • Pool(s)? No

7. Best Western – 4☆

✉️ 92 Barnovi Street Tbilisi, Vake

If you’re seeking a little more luxury than what we’ve served up so far, this is one of the best hotels in Tbilisi for solo travelers.

Here, you get decadence, but you get it on a budget… which is useful when you’re traveling alone.

It’s spacious, modern and glass-fronted, with lots of trendy flourishes. Some rooms have balconies, the buffet breakfast is absolutely fantastic, and they have a tour desk offering various types of sightseeing trips.

The Best Western is situated in the eastern part of Vake, the most expensive and upmarket neighborhood in the city. So you’re close to the city center… but you also get to enjoy the leafy, laid-back vibe of Tbilisi’s prettiest and most cosmopolitan district.

  • Location: Vake
  • Stars: 4
  • Price range: $$
  • Airport shuttle? Yes
  • Pet-friendly? Yes
  • Pool(s)? No

8. Bazzar Boutique Hotel

✉️ 3 Pkhovi Street, Mtatsminda

Another relatively high-end place, Bazzar Boutique Hotel is right in the heart of the city.

If you’re into arty aesthetics, you’ll love it. A so-called ‘boutique hotel,’ the colorful decor is full of flair, with lots of glass, flowers, shiny surfaces, and surprising interior touches. And as a nice bonus, the beds are super comfy.

And it’s very new, so it’s particularly clean, modern and welcoming.

If you’re on the hunt for adventures, this is one of the best hotels in Tbilisi for solo travelers—the accommodation organizes tours to endless different parts of Georgia, including cities, monasteries, mountains and more. If you want stress-free experiences, it’s the perfect solution.

  • Location: Rustaveli
  • Price range: $$
  • Airport shuttle? No
  • Pet-friendly? No
  • Pool(s)? No

9. Stamba – 5☆

✉️ 14 Merab Kostava Street

At most high-end hotels, it can be quite difficult to make friends.

That absolutely isn’t the case in Stamba, where you get a diverse variety of interesting people.

One of the trendiest hangouts in town, Stamba is home to a library, a bookstore, a brunch-based cafe, a multimedia art gallery, and loads of other kooky stuff. It’s like an upmarket version of Fabrika… and it attracts upmarket versions of hipsters.

In short, if you want to make friends without sleeping in a sweaty dorm room, this is one of the best hotels in Tbilisi for solo travelers. Be warned though: it’s a pretty pricey place.

  • Location: Northern Rustaveli
  • Stars: 5
  • Price range: $$$
  • Airport shuttle? Yes
  • Pet-friendly? Yes
  • Pool(s)? No

10. Rooms Hotel – 4☆

✉️ Kostava Street 14

Another of the most famous hotels in the city, Rooms Hotel is right around the corner from Stamba.

It’s a little more affordable (and less pretentious) than its nearby neighbor, but it’s another of the best hotels in Tbilisi for solo travelers.

Inside, they have elegant rooms, a pretty good gym, and striking interior design. It’s really pretty and aesthetic—it sort of feels like you’re overnighting on a movie set (and as if it should be way more expensive).

Rooms Hotel offer lots of tours and experiences, including adventures in the city and way further afield. Highly recommended.

  • Location: Northern Rustaveli
  • Stars: 4
  • Price range: $$
  • Airport shuttle? Yes
  • Pet-friendly? Yes
  • Pool(s)? No

11. Courtyard by Marriott – 4☆

✉️ Freedom Square 4

Another good option for luxury on a relative budget, the Courtyard by Marriott is a good choice for solo travelers who actually want to spend some time solo.

Unlike lots of the places we’ve featured on this list, it’s pretty standard hotel-style, so you’re probably not going to make many friends here.

Instead, you get high-end at pretty low prices, with a pool, a sauna, on-site massages, fancy interiors, a pretty good buffet breakfast, and an excellent location right in the middle of Liberty Square (the central part of the city).

If you need to combine a little work or business with your solo vacation, it’s the perfect option.

  • Location: Liberty Square
  • Stars: 4
  • Price range: $$
  • Airport shuttle? Yes
  • Pet-friendly? No
  • Pool(s)? Yes

12. Pushkin 10 Hostel

✉️ Pushkin Street 10, 3rd floor, Mtatsminda

One of the most popular hostels in the city, Pushkin 10 Hostel is loved by basically everyone who stays there.

A good compromise for people who want a sociable hostel without too much noise and nuisance, it’s way more homely than most hostels, and it attracts a friendly but respectful crowd. The rooms are clean, tidy and pretty, and you get pancakes for breakfast!

It’s also in a perfect location, right between the Old Town, Rustaveli, and Liberty Square. Here, you’re well-located for pretty much anything and everything you might want to do.

  • Location: The Old Town
  • Price range: $
  • Airport shuttle? yes
  • Pet-friendly? No
  • Pool(s)? No

13. Hotel Aqua Liberty – 4☆

✉️ 15 Aleksandr Pushkin Street

Last up, we have Hotel Aqua Liberty, which is in a great location in the heart of Liberty Square (perfect for eating, drinking, enjoying all the sights, and finding the best nightlife in the city).

If you want to treat yourself to a classy experience on your solo adventure, you’ll love this place. Palatial and impressive, it looks like it was designed by some kooky Medieval interior designer. And as a nice bonus, it’s not as expensive as it looks!

It’s not a particularly sociable place, so don’t expect to make many friends here. That said, they offer excursions, guided tours, and a summer terrace.

  • Location: Liberty Square
  • Stars: 4
  • Price range: $$
  • Airport shuttle? Yes
  • Pet-friendly? No
  • Pool(s)? No
