You are currently viewing Georgia: Examples of nice and affordable accommodation in 6 destinations

If you want to travel for less, choosing the most affordable countries is by far the simplest and most effortless tip! Sadly, so many people don’t even know how cheap it can be! I’m continuing this series of posts with Georgia. It’s another of the most affordable places, but most importantly, it’s an amazing country and it’s on a continent most people love: Europe (well, by some definitions)!

Here are nice and cheap accommodation options in 6 destinations in Georgia to show you just how affordable a trip to an amazing spot can be! 

(We’ve also done this for other countries that are even cheaper in other parts of the world: Bosnia-Herzegovina, Colombia, Türkiye, Egypt, Cambodia, Malaysia, and Indonesia!)

 

Basics of traveling to Georgia for less

Like most people, you might have only heard about Georgia (the country, not the U.S. State) when the mainstream media talked about it. That necessarily means when something bad was happening, as always. The 16-day war ended a long time ago, you can get over it now.

The country is wonderful. It’s one of the countries I spent the most time in (5 months), and I loved it. Georgia is located in the Caucasus region which is the border between Europe and Asia.

To see a less touristy side of Europe, Georgia is a perfect destination. There’s just as much history and culture in this region, but it has fewer crowds of tourists!

As mentioned, it’s also one of the most affordable countries in the world, one of the very few in Europe. It’s obviously a little more expensive than Southeast Asian countries in general, but still very affordable.

 

Basics of cheap accommodation in Georgia

For each of the 6 destinations in Georgia, we tried to find you 3 examples of cheap accommodation.

An example for those who:

We limit ourselves to nice accommodations that are highly rated.

So if you want it to be cheaper, there are obviously cheaper ones than our examples. The exception: there aren’t any cheaper Marriott hotels, as the world’s largest hotel chain has no options in the low-end segment.

Not among the best! Georgia isn't one of the best places in the world to get more free nights with your points, but you can still get quite a few! The current welcome bonus on the Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card gives you 53,000 points (50,000 with the bonus and 3,000 by unlocking it) and your travel companion can get it too, for 106,000 points in total!

And if you prefer luxury, of course, luxury is also much cheaper in Georgia than in the places where everyone always travels to!

So here are the examples of nice and affordable accommodations in 6 destinations in Georgia.

Tbilisi

Tbilisi is Georgia’s capital and largest city, with around 1.5 million inhabitants — about the size of Ottawa. Founded in the 5th century on the banks of the Koura River, the city is full of surprises. I absolutely loved Tbilisi!

Kakheti region (Telavi and Sighnaghi)

This eastern region is famous for its beautiful vineyards — Georgia claims to have invented wine (it’s debated, but what’s for sure is they’ve been making some for a very long time). You can also visit the region’s 2 main towns, Telavi and Sighnaghi, and the Lagodekhi National Park, ideal for hiking.
