Nairi hotel is located on a hill in what local Armenians call "Nork" district. The hotel has verygood views over local landscape and is in extremely quiet place. The hotel is located far from the center and walking would there is not an easy task even for the trained people, but taxis are cheap.Consider a separated budget for taking taxi to be in and out of the hotel.
The hotel is making efforts to encourage visitors to Nagorno Karabakh region that is still recovering from a war (1991 - 1993) and that is not officially recognized by any country other than its neighbor, Armenia.
Try to book city view rooms otherwise you will see just some concrete walls. A panoramic view of the city is the true advantage of Nairi hotel. The rooms are nice with room heaters for winter. Rooms are quite large, with a strange mixture of furniture. Air-conditioners in some rooms work not well, but you can manage to get your room changes if it is necessary.
The rooms have just two electricity sockets: one is for refrigerator and another one for the lamp. So if you would need to chargeyour gadgets you will have to stay either without light or to unplug refrigerator. Minibar in the refrigerator is locked with a key that you have to ask at reception.
The breakfast in the morning is basic but good and keeps you going the whole day with variety of local made cheeses. Sandwiches and other items are very good. The hotel has its own website with glowing descriptions that don't match up to reality. It mentions a buffet breakfast. That doesn't exist. Tables are set with four places. The food is already on the tables - four of everything. If one of guest makes the heinous mistake of eating two small pancakes! It means that if another couple came later to that table, there would only have been one pancake left.
