23 November, 2022 seen 80,037More than 10 years ago I first landed at the Tbilisi airport and for the first time took a step on Georgian land. That happened on April 1st, 2011 - I like this data - it's known Worldwide as a Fool's day. With this article, originally I was celebrating my fourth year living in Georgia. But now, the article has grown into one of the most popular articles…
Rivendell, Eco-friendly hotel with wooden rooms and organic garden, is located in Borjomi.
After discovering that we spend more and more time at luxury hotels across Georgia, we decided to return to the roots and instead of fancy 5-star hotels to choose a home away felling by choosing stay at guest houses/ family-run hotels.
At guest house Rivendell we stayed for one night at the end of June 2019 for that we paid just $40. Free parking and breakfast included.

Room at Guesthouse Rivendell
Simple, nothing special, our room came with a balcony and bathroom. From the downsides staying at guesthouses I should note - lack of soundproof rooms. It was OK, during our stay, but we heard everything from the other side of the wall.
View from Balcony
It was a smoky day a lot of haze, couldn't see much.
The living room at guest house Rivendell
As we were traveling with our yet to turn one-year-old baby girl, it was cool having extra space she could run around and play. There were some baby toys. Kid-friendly.
Dinner on site
For the evening we order at the guesthouse dinner for us, and got roasted and really tasty chicken and salads (according to the picture). Paid something 50-100 GEL for that. It was worth every tetri.
Breakfast at Rivendell
The next morning, we were served a typical Georgian breakfast, some porridge, cheese, honey even mashed potatoes and khachapuri, Good.
