Gistola Hotel Mestia

Fantastic staff!

Reviewed By johndS5419VQ

We decided to wait until we got to Mestia to physically look at hotel options. We had an unpleasant guest house experience on the Black Sea of Georgia, so wanted to look at the rooms before making a hotel reservation. So glad that we did! This hotel is new, just a year old, and very nicely designed and decorated. The rooms are very spacious, the beds comfortable, and there are amazing views from the balcony. What makes this a 5 star review is all of the above, plus the people. The hotel staff are friendly, helpful, and a pleasure to be around. Special thanks to Nik and Tedo. Speaking of Tedo, be sure to hire their driver/van to go to Ushguli, and be sure that you include Tedo as your guide. He's extremely knowledgeable and has excellent English skills. The day trip was the highlight of our four day stay in Mestia.

Best place to hosting at Mestia!

That is probably a best hotel at the heart of Svaneti - Mestia. We found a luxury 2-rooms apartment and incredible service with highly professional team. The warm family service and boutique apartments, with incredible local authentic cousin. Absolutely highly recommended!

A welcoming place in Mestia

Reviewed By nrvs

I stayed at Elite House for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's located very close to the center of town, but it's away from the main street with most vehicle traffic so it's pretty quiet. My room and bed were comfortable and I enjoyed the balcony overlooking some smaller mountains on the edge of town. My only complaint about the room is that there was a bit of a smell from the bathroom drains, but this isn't something that can be fixed without completely redoing the building's plumbing. The best part about Elite House is Marina, the person you'll see most often. She absolutely wants to make sure your stay in Svaneti is great. She cooks a huge breakfast (15 GEL, totally worth it) and showed me where I could do my laundry (15 GEL as well—AND they have a dryer). She was also able to call a guy she knew to drive me in his 4x4 for a day trip to Ushguli. Marina doesn't speak English, but I had no trouble communicating with her using Google Translate and gestures. There are probably a hundred guesthouses and hotels in Mestia, but I am really glad I chose to stay at Elite House.

Breakfast for only 15 GEL

Reviewed By ingzone

We were staying in Teo's Guest House who referred us to Keti Margiani Guest House that offers breakfast for only 15 lari per person. One young lady who speaks English fluently welcomed us with warmth and even offered to see the terrace for the beautiful morning view of Mestia. Her mother cooked the fresh delicious food, we could not believe that she prepared a LOT that we could barely finish. What was left in the table she insisted for us to take away. Truly love the hospitality here compared to Tbilisi.

Lovely and comfortable guesthouse

Reviewed By jefner01

This is a cute and very welcoming guesthouse, the owners are lovely. The room was large and clean and beds comfortable. Wifi was sporadic but I think in this area that must be the case for a lot of guesthouses. You have full access to the guesthouse kitchen and washing machine (washing machine use for a small fee) and are told to make yourself at home, very welcoming. I found this guesthouse easy to find by downloading offline google maps, you just need to find the name of the guesthouse on a signboard on the guesthouse gate. I stayed here on the way to Ushguli. Would recommend seeing the tower villages of Ushguli if you have the time, amazing to see and hike around, I toured with Budget Georgia.

Hotel Laleta

Hotel Laleta is located in Latali community of Mestia district. The community, populated by 400 families, lies in a pollution-free area with an ancient culture. You can find there 34 medieval churches and a souvenir market. In XII century Queen Tamara used to stop in Latali on her way to the summer residence in Ushguli. We invite you to touch an ancient Svanetian way of life in one of the world's most beautiful place.

Everything you need and more...

Reviewed By Gillems

We couldn't have asked for a better experience and highly recommend this wonderful hotel in Latali. The location is excellent - close enough to drive into the town of Mestia, if you need to (and there are a couple of local shops in walking distance), but remote enough to fully enjoy and take in the beauty of Georgia and the Svaneti region in particular. You can tell that Ksenia and her family truly love this place and they share that appreciation with their visitors - providing truly delicious Georgian breakfasts and dinners (veggie or carni), delicious wines, attentive service, and great insider info about secret scenic spots which we never would have found without their guidance! We were travelling with a toddler and everything went so smoothly and easily as there is so much space to play and run around. If you're heading to Svaneti, you really must go and stay at this lovely Georgian gem.

Good shower but predictable food

Reviewed By BoehmBawerk

Amid a tough walking tour, the shower and relative comfort of this place were most welcome – especially after a subprime option the previous evening in Becho (not on Tripadvisor). That said, the food, while decent enough, lacked flair and was cast into shadow by that of other hotels in Georgia. Puppies sitting in a box awaited us on our return one evening while nearby, a foal suckled her mother and piglets cavorted – so there is character here and a short cut will take walkers into the centre of Mestia in a jiffy.

Great find, highly recommend.

A cross between small hotel and guest house, Ushba is an excellent choice. Central location; simple but nice, clean rooms--most with mountain views and balconies. Bathrooms are excellent, modern and very clean. Several lounges to hang out. Indoor and outdoor dining and very good food.
