Hotel Regineh is a hotel on the outskirts of Yerevan.The hotel is not in walking distance of the city centre and one would need to have 10-15 minute taxi ride to get to main tourist attractions.If you exit the hotel and walk hundred meters down the hill there is on the right a little corner shop, and 50m further a large supermarket which has a little "bank counter" where you can change your cash at a better rate as in the hotel (US$, €). There is also an ATM in the hotel lobby.When taking a taxi into the city make sure you take a business card of the hotel with you because taxi drivers are not orienting well in this area.The views from this hotel are amazing. From the hotel's balcony on a clear day you can have great views of the Ararat mountain.
The air-conditioned rooms are quiet and clean. There are toothbrush and toothpaste in the bathroom. You should avoid the room next to laundry because it might be very noisy.The rooms differ a lot in size, the ones with balconies are much larger and having a great view of Mt.Ararat and Yerevan panorama.The twin beds are quite comfortable, but it might be a little too firm for some people. There is a small refrigerator in the room as well as a flat-screen cable TV (CNN only English channel).
Hotel has a nice swimming pool which refreshing after a long day of sightseeing (be aware it closes at 7pm).There is free wifi in the Lobby, connections in the rooms gets weaker the further from the lobby.
Breakfast is alright but don't expect too much. Another disadvantage is that there are no stores or other restaurants nearby.There is a small grocery store down the street and a larger one if you go down the street, turn right and walk up the hill. As always, take the hotel's business card with you and negotiate taxi fares in advance. The front desk has maps and provides useful information. Food and drinks are of good quality at outside bar.The food in the restaurant is average.
If you fancy a cup of coffee during the day ask for a "Turkish Coffee" (a lot cheaper) at the bar. The staff all speak good English (compared to other places), and are helpful with everything.
