There are a lot of different hotels and hostels in Armenia and there are those that are required to visit.
They are distinguished from the rest and will be remembered by all guests without exception.
At our request, Ani Chloyan compiled a list of unusual hotels. They are impossible to be overlooked and not to book a room in one of them.
The boutique hotel is located in the city of Goris, in the south of Armenia. It is convenient to stay here if you are going to see the Tatev Monastery, the megalithic complex Zorats Karer, the Shaki waterfall. In addition for those who take a leisurely trip to Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), the hotel is perfect for 1 night.
The hotel is the hallmark of Goris and in addition to the fact that the hotel is decorated in an authentic style and it is nice to be here. There is another feature that few people know about. If you are lucky enough to live in room 50 then by clicking on the elevator button you will immediately fall into your chambers.

“Arevi” is translated from the Armenian language as “sunny” and here it is really very sunny and cozy. This is because people come here who lead a very active lifestyle: they do yoga and cycling, go hiking and all that you can do in the mountains. This place is often called a place of power, since Arevi is located next to the Smbataberd fortress which dates back to the 5th century.
The fortress was built at an altitude of 2000 meters above sea level, on a cliff and the way how they could build it there is amazing. Only tremendous fortitude can push it. And besides, for the entire existence of the fortress, the most magnificent dynasties of Armenia lived here: Bagratuni, Orbelian and even Roman emperors during the reign of Rome.
Arevi is a hotel, which should be on the obligatory list of visiting a traveler in Armenia.

Berlin Art Hotel
This unusual hotel is located in the cultural capital of Armenia, Gyumri. After the 1988 earthquake, with the support of the German Red Cross, the Berlin Center for Mother and Child was established in Gyumri. In 1996, part of the hospital was transformed into a guest house in Berlin, then many people came there with a special help mission. After the hotel was renovated and renamed to Berlin Art Hotel, where the hotel and Gallery 25 are now located.
Each room has a mini-gallery where works by contemporary Gyumri artists are presented. With the help of this gallery many artists and masters were able to exhibit and sell their work abroad.

Where they can live and work at the same time, go hiking, do not depend on the opening hours of restaurants in a word be free.

3 diamonds 2 of which are located in Yerevan and one in Gyumri. Why do we call them diamonds among the rest because the owners of this chain were able to create a mix of authenticity and luxury. Hotel buildings are old houses. Since the owner of these hotels is Italian, it could not do without Italian taste and a palette of colors. Each hotel is a house of the 18-19th century with its rich history and heritage.
Architectural elements are part of each room, the overall design is based on a warm palette of mixed wood and stone with Armenian carpets, ceramics from the workshop and a fascinating collection of ethnic and antique furniture to complement the interior.
