Opened January 2014, Golden Palace is bringing freshness to the Batumi lodging scene. The hotel welcomes with a classic-style lobby, from where a glass-walled lift takes guests up through the second-floor casino. The hotel’s fifty-one rooms are decorated in a classic style, with dark wooden floors and nicely decorated white or cream colored walls and elegant furniture. Every room is equipped with an air conditioner, mini bar, lock box, cable TV and free wi-fi. Each of the rooms overlooks one of the city’s two main squares – Europa (Era) Square from the rear or (for a slightly-higher price) the outstanding Drama Theatre. The relaxed casino is divided into two areas – one for gambling and the other a slot room. The casino bar is well-stocked and serves its guests a free 19:30 dinner.
