Where to stay in Armenia

You'll find a good selection of accommodations in Armenia, fairly evenly distributed throughout the city. However, the downtown area south of Avenida de los Camellos has the lion's share, with hotels mid-range to luxurious well positioned for access to popular bars and eateries, as well as the main highways leading out into the rich natural landscape of the region. Budget options exist in the form of hotels and hostels in formerly residential blocks, fitting in with the architecture on the residential and commerical side streets.
