About CitizenTbilisi

We are a family-run hospitality business in Tbilisi. The apartments have been in the family for 5 generations. We love them and love sharing them with people like you. We first opened our Tbilisi apartment doors to guests in 2013 and have been welcoming Tbilisi visitors from all corners of the world ever since. Over the past 10 years, we have grown from one studio apartment in Tbilisi to 5 apartments and homes in 2 great locations in Old Tbilisi. More recently we added a new home in Old Tbilisi for Tbilisi expats in 2023.  


I am Tamara and I am from Tbilisi, grew up in the same yard where our apartments are located. My husband, Alan Forrest Smith is a Scottish-born writer from Edinburgh, we live between Manchester, UK, and Tbilisi, Georgia. My mother, Manana, and my brother, Ika, live in the same yard too. My mother is the person who welcomes and greets our guests. The neighbors in our yard are part of a friendly and welcoming community. We hope you will enjoy your time in our apartments and hope to meet you in person at some point in the future.
