Ararat hotel has a great location near the centre of the city, 7 minutes walk from the Republic Square. It is a great place for living in the heart of Yerevan and uses it a starting point for exploring Armenian capital. All major tourist hotspots are in walking distance. The hotel is based in the old but partly refurbished building.
Ararat Hotel offers elegant, boutique-style rooms featuring wooden furnishings, heated floors and large windows. A flat-screen TV, minibar, and private bathroom with complimentary toiletries are included in every room.
Beds are with thin mattress and one can feel the wooden plank through the mattress. The pillows in the room are not comfortable and when you ask front office for a better pillow they bring the pillow that is exactly the same.The drinking glasses in the bedroom are not replaced on a daily basis.
There have been reported some problems with air-conditioning that not always works properly and might be annoying in the hot summer time. Opening windows is not always a solution as the road outside is very noisy.
Corner suites are large and sunny. Wi-Fi works only in some rooms.
Swimming pool is very small and probably there is no space for more than 1-2 persons.Laundry services are quite expensive. The rates are listed in the hotel booklets in your room, so check before ordering the service.The so called business center is not opened every day and has only one computer.
Breakfast is good and choice of food is reasonable to satisfy all kinds of preferences. It is nice to have a drink in a kind of inner garden lounge, which is hiding behind the reception desk.
Staff is friendly and helpful, F&B personnel ispolite and ready to assist guests.The front desk is a bit slow though. Upon check-out they are checking the condition of each room and there areobviously not enough people to do it fast.
Overall good experiences in this hotel mixed with bad ones, but hotel is reasonable if you are prepared for that
