Kerten Hospitality opens boutique hotel in old Tbilisi

The 17-room property invites guests to experience local culture

Kerten Hospitality, a mixed-use ESG and lifestyle operator, has opened The House Hotel Old Tbilisi, the first of three lifestyle hospitality projects in its Georgia pipeline. 

The three-story hotel was once the Nikolozishvili mansion and blends that traditional charm with chic sensibility. 

Each room is distinguished by a historical Georgian character painted by local mural artist Musya Qeburia and features custom Georgian oak furnishings, parquet floors and marble bathrooms. 

Suites feature Tbilisi’s trademark wooden balconies with a view of the nearby Mtkvari River
