    The central square of the city of Armenia with city hall and a church but the architecture of the buildings is not nice and there is nothing special to see for a tourist  more »

    plaza de bolivar should be a place where you feel quiet spend a pleasant time in family, but the reality is that being there you feel somewhat insecure and while it is surrounded of some coffee shops does not have the variety necessary to taste while you enjoy of PM pa do not has nothing out of the common does not recommend

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.
