Hotel in Mestia

In large, green grounds just off the road in Ienashi, 7km west of Mestia, Laleta offers a relaxed rural alternative, with plain, comfy rooms (most sharing bathrooms) for up to five people. Some good walks and horse rides start right here, and different meals are cooked up fresh daily, with vegetarian dishes always available.

The helpful, English-speaking owners also run a budget hostel, Kakuchela, on the roadside nearby.
