Where to stay

As visitors usually take day trips to the village and monastery, they often opt to stay in one of the numerous hotels and guesthouses in Yerevan, since the capital is not far away. Besides a couple of options situated on the road connecting the village with Yerevan, most of the accommodations in the area lie in the capital, concentrated chiefly in the city center. Lodgings vary widely in style and price, ranging from budget-friendly hostels and mid-range hotels, to luxury establishments housed in historic town buildings.
