Where to stay in Yerevan

When it comes to accommodations in Yerevan, you'll find a number and a range befitting its status as the capital and most populous city in the country. Look in the Kentron (center) district, where by far the greatest number and best quality hotels can be found. Hotels in old Soviet blocks, grand former administrative buildings, or newly built high-rises offer standard to luxury rooms, along with a set of smaller hostels. With prices notoriously high for the region (and many visitors using Yerevan as a base from which to see the country), consider renting an apartment if staying for a longer period.

  • A very cool art museum situated on a giant staircase! I'm not sure why, but they are really strict on taking pictures of the art.
  • Unbelievably beautiful with great art thrown in! Climb to the top for a breathtaking view of Yerevan and then go inside to use the escalators and see wonderful modern art. Don't miss Khanjyan's amazing mural - it will teach you more about Armenia than anything else!!
  • Really cool galleries, particularly the permanent exhibits. You don't need to pay admission to see the good galleries.
  • Beautiful creative art collection and totally free....do suggest a visit
  • Something different. Totally worth a visit.
