Stepantsminda is a small town located in a valley in northern Georgia, about three hours drive from the capital city of Tbilisi. The grand Caucasus Mountains serve as a spectacular natural backdrop to the town with a population of just about 2,000. The town is seeing healthy growth in MICE visitors and general tourists due to its natural beauty.
One of the attractions in this town, apart from the great nature, outdoor activities and heritage sites, is Rooms Hotel Kazbegi. Guests who had visited Rooms Hotel in Tbilisi will notice its DNA here, with design theme of fusing modernity with vintage or local rustic charm. A key feature of the hotel is its long terrace that extends across the entire length of the hotel, providing the perfect panoramic view of the great mountains.
The corridors leading to the guest rooms suffer from the same issues of being narrow and dim as Rooms Hotel Tbilisi, so perhaps this is the intended style of the designers. Although the rooms are not small, the layout somehow resulted in a rather squeezy bathroom and limited space to keep two cabin-size luggage open at the same time.
For MICE, the hotel offers three small rooms with a capacity of 50 guests each in theatre-style seating arrangement. The Ballroom can accommodate up to 200 guests theatre-style. The pre-function area is wide, and its outdoor terrace provides additional cocktail reception space for events.
Rooms Hotel Kazbegi is perfect for corporate retreat, conference and incentive groups. However, organisers do have to take note that the road leading to Stepantsiminda is winding and narrow, with some parts only wide enough for one-way traffic at any one time. This road is also a busy route for trucks delivering goods between Georgia and Russia. Hence, any traffic situation or bad weather could disrupt travel schedule of the group.
