    Hostel Mandaria

    In a huge old Soviet building that was once a printing company, Mandaria is a hostel on a grand scale that is perfect for groups. There's a huge communal kitchen that is superbly equipped, lots of showers and toilets, and a vast lounge-dining space ideal for hanging out. It's a bit of a schlep from the city centre, but otherwise excellent.

    Hotel Terrace Kutaisi

    Set among a quiet residential neighbourhood, this brand-new 17-room hotel tower sticks out a little bit, but it's run by a super-helpful team and has stylish and contemporary rooms. Best of all is the huge roof terrace and bar, with fantastic views of the city.
