There are many small or medium-sized, midrange hotels with character in cities and towns around the country and a handful of super-luxury top-end places in Tbilisi, Batumi, other sea resorts including Kobuleti, Shekvetili and also in Kakheti & Stepantsminda. Guesthouses are also often enjoyable places to stay, especially in Svanety. Not least for contact with local people and their home-cooked food. As the number of overnight stays peaked its record height in 2017, every season is worth calling ahead to secure a room.
