The location is a major drawback. It's 15 minutes drive to downtown and three outta four cab drivers didn't know the place! I even gave them the hotel card with hotel address written on it both in Armenian and Russian languages ... but in vain !
The hotel itself was so-so too. Our room (#231) faced a wall and had no view of the hotel garden (which is green and beautiful) or Ararat mountains. My sister-in-law's room (opposite ours #230) faced a small backyard.
Lobby is spacious and beautiful though. There's a swimming pool in the garden but u must pay 4000 Drams (USD 11) to use it !(pool workin' hours: 10:00 to 19:00). I wanted to use the gym but it was closed at 19:00 ! So I paid 10000 Drams (USD 27) to use a very small pool in sauna No. 1 (the sauna itself did not work however!) and since pool water was ice cold , I couldn't bear and left after 10 minutes.
Rooms are rather small even for 2 persons. Shower in the room had kind of jacuzzi which was ok.
We arrived early (9:00 in the morning) but they said room was not ready yet. The hotel was very uncrowded and I bet %75 of the rooms were unoccupied, but they insisted that we came back at 14:00 hours !
Breakfast was ok . Beds more than ok .
Nearly all hotel guests were Russians who left the day after our arrival and hotel was a ghost town thereafter !
