Good location near the big weekend flea &traditional craft market in the center of Yerevan.Unless you absolutely hate shopping, you will be spending at least a couple of hours in this flea market on Saturday or Sunday. Even during weekdays, you don't have to speak Armenian to give the taxi driver the hotel address. Just say Vernissage and you are there. Despite it being close to the market there is no noise or disturbance,although the street is in bad shape and needs a major face lift. The hotel is also a few minutes’ walk from Republic Square, another must-see on a Yerevan trip.
The hotel itself has character. The building facade is beautifully lit at night, a large chandelier draws your attention in the lobby and the overall feel is open and welcoming.The beautiful interior inspired by rustic Armenian theme and Tufenkian carpet collection and the ultra modern bathrooms made it a very comfortable and clean place to stay.
If you are familiar with 'The Princess and The Pea' children's story, you will be reminded of it as soon as you see the beds (very high for those not familiar with the story). Unlike the princess though, you can sleep comfortably all through the night despite your first impressions. The rooms themselves and the bathrooms are spacious, quiet and well-lit.
Wi-Fi is free and strong in both the rooms and the lobby. The elevator is a bit slow and tricky but unless you are there on urgent business, a few minutes spent trying to make the elevator door close will not bother you much.
Lunch at the hotel restaurant is good but breakfast could be better. But you can taste real good coffee and lots of fresh juice for the breakfast.The hotel is great with friendly Armenian and English speaking staff, always ready to help.Reception staff is absolutely very friendly and helpful.
All in all a fantastic boutique hotel that definitely sets the benchmark in Yerevan.
