Time Out Hotel welcomes guests through its bar/restaurant located directly on the ski slope. Its location at the top of Pirveli lift and bottom of Soliko lift is perfect for all ability levels – beginners can ski down the easy slope and more advanced skiers can ride the lift up to the steeper slopes.
The English-speaking bar staff are very friendly and will help you find your room and translate anything necessary, though the hotel staff appear much more grumpy. Room are very basic and lacking in character but clean. Double rooms are available for the price of $130/night during the peak season, and triples for $150.
A breakfast buffet is included in the price, and Time Out’s restaurant is one of the best on the slopes. Though lunch and dinner are not included, I highly recommend trying Time Out’s khachapuri (Georgia’s famous pizza-like cheese pastry). It’s undoubtedly the best khachapuri in Gudauri.
Apart from the excellent location and great food, Time Out’s other perk (for some) is the bar. For those who like to drink the evening away, dancing to everything from old Russian pop to the newest hits and everything in between, Time Out is a great place to be. The bar is open every night and often has loud music playing, so sleeping may not be an option until it closes (around 11pm-midnight most nights but later on holidays or crowded nights). Gudauri’s two other party bars are located within a ten minute walk, making this an optimal location for skiers who want to be right on the slopes, enjoy a good apres party, and don’t have such high expectations of the hotel itself.
