Occupying a once-iconic publishing house in Tbilisi's vibrant and quaint Vera neighbourhood, Stamba is a hotel bent on preserving and utilising the bold character and design of the building's past.
This is a seriously cool design concept hotel with much to admire, including how cleverly they have weaved together the building's older elements with newer, more contemporary styles - a theme that is present throughout Stamba.
There are 42 rooms of varying sizes at the hotel, each with its own distinct atmosphere and thoughtful design. All feature modern amenities, oversized windows and high ceilings, while some are adorned with massive statement bookcases and brass bathtubs, that add a wonderful touch of character to the space.
For sustenance, tuck into delicious dishes at Cafe Stamba or, for something a little lighter, a high-quality coffee and sweet treat at the sophisticated Stamba Chocolaterie. Come evening, wind-down at the Pink Bar, a hip and dynamic space where you can easily while away an hour or two.
Beyond the bar and restaurant, there is a warren of interesting spaces to explore from the photo museum and spacious amphitheatre to the rambling courtyard gardens and incredible basement casino.
As well as a fabulous basement casino, Stamba boasts its very own Chocolaterie where you can indulge in sweet treats and high-quality coffee.
