Where to stay in Armenia
Many of the old Soviet-era hotels have been privatised and upgraded, including the excellent Armenia Marriott Hotel on Republic Square in Yerevan. The Tufenkian Group has established several heritage hotels across the country, notably the Avan Dzoraget Hotel in the Debed Canyon.
Bed and breakfast
Armenia has the best network of bed and breakfasts in the Caucuses. Most offer a room inside the family house with shared facilities. Staying in these is a great way to get to know local families. The main tourist office in Yerevan keeps an updated list of bed and breakfasts across the country.
