Located in the same publishing house as Stamba Hotel, Rooms Hotel Tbilisi was the first sustainable conversion project, which Adjara Group created in the historical capital of Georgia. The brutalist aesthetic of the original construction is used as one of the major inspirations when creating the façade of the hotel. The exterior of Rooms Hotel Tbilisi is covered with wooden planks, which once were used as construction materials for abandoned village houses in the western part of the country.

Moreover, the eclectic chic design of the venue connects Rooms Hotel Tbilisi to the architecture of Tbilisi, which is culturally diverse. The interior filled with color and art nouveau ornaments perform stories of the past through space.

The chic interior of the hotel utilizes elements from the publishing house, while also incorporating local aspects along with the artworks from Georgian artists and vintage interior patterns reminiscent of 1930s New York. Hence, the establishment serves as a time-capsule for international guests, with its authenticity and Georgianness appealing to communities of the country’s creatives and forward-thinking individuals just as well.

Rooms Hotel Tbilisi’s lobby, bar, and the Kitchen restaurant overlooking the green courtyard from the floor-to-ceiling windows stand out for their eclectic selection of vintage furniture inspire the desire for socialization. These public spaces also offer spaces for people to work and discover their comfort. Diverse in color, shapes, and design elements, these venues have turned the establishment into a place demonstrating the company’s contemporary hospitality-concept, where the sensual experience of space as a performer of culture takes center stage.

The Vera neighborhood has historically been a place for artists and outstanding Georgians who shaped the face of the country. With the introduction of the converted Rooms Hotel to this location, the famed part of the city has been reborn as a modern, local retreat and a creative epicenter. Additionally, various restaurants and boutique shops have sprung up organically around this hospitality brand, elevating life in the neighborhood even further.

The sustainable model of architectural project development has been successful in Georgia, and Rooms Hotel Tbilisi demonstrates this well. The establishment is associated with high occupancy rates, organically formed local communities around the brand, and the continued attention from international media. Moreover, Rooms Hotel Tbilisi has been playing a significant role in creating Tbilisi’s image as a tourism destination with a diverse cultural background. This way, the sustainable project by Adjara Group has preserved cultural heritage, set a benchmark for environmentally friendly practices, which conversion projects imply while revolutionizing spaces, advancing hospitality concepts, and placing the country on the world map.
