Highs & Lows

  • Woah, Georgian hospitality, who knew? The Rooms staff was incredibly attentive, down to negotiating our cab fares.

  • The bellhop outfits, straight out of Wes Anderson’s playbook.

  • The complimentary breakfast to end all breakfasts. I’ve never met a granola so deliciously decadent.

  • Tbilisi is slowly becoming known as more of a creative mecca, thanks to famous locals like Demna Gvasalia. Five minutes in the lobby at Rooms, you get the sense that you’re in the epicenter of that creative hub.

  • The design—style for miles.

  • - The room service. I know, I feel like an a-hole even complaining about room service, because it means I’m in a position to order it, but I have had better midnight fries.
