Armenia’s capital boasts history stretching back nearly 3,000 years. Known as one of the world’s oldest continually inhabited cities, today Yerevan is a thriving cosmopolitan city, complete with wide boulevards and trendy street cafes. Delve back in time with a visit to the History Museum of Armenia or the Matenadaran library. Stroll through the fountain-lined Republic Square before heading to Victory Park for the best view of Mount Ararat. Read on to discover the best place to stay on your next trip.

Aghababyan’s Hotel

A five-star hotel just a short drive out of the city, the Aghababyan is the perfect option if you’re looking for luxury without the city noise. Each guest room includes plush, king-size beds and soundproofing as standard, while the eight fully-furnished holiday apartments are well suited for an extended stay. You’ll also be treated to a full range of perks, including a swimming pool, sauna, fitness centre and complimentary breakfast.

Museum Street Hotel Yerevan

Step back in time at the Museum Street Hotel, a traditional option in the heart of Yerevan‘s cultural district. Rooms include a blend of antique furniture and classic works of art, while still offering contemporary comforts – including complimentary wifi and satellite TV. The hotel is a short walk from some of the city’s best attractions, including the National Theatre of Opera and Ballet as well as the Cascade, a monument to Armenia’s unique architecture.

The Alexander, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Yerevan

Brought to the city by the popular Marriott chain, the Alexander is considered to be the first true international hotel in Yerevan. Showcasing the same quality service, lavish design and modern facilities that have made the brand so popular, the Alexander has quickly earned a reputation as one of the city’s best hotels. Start your day with a dip in the ultra-modern indoor pool, or finish it with a facial in the Parisian-inspired spa.

Ani Grand Hotel Yerevan

Overlooking the historic Vernissage market and a quick stroll from the famous Republic Square, the Ani Grand Hotel is well placed for you to explore everything the city has to offer. You can’t miss the imposing Art Deco exterior. Inside, rooms are fairly neutral but the fitness centre and indoor pool are welcome perks. Drop by the hotel’s cafe, offering fresh cakes and pastries each morning.

Grand Hotel Yerevan

Dating back nearly 100 years, the Grand Hotel still offers the same refined elegance as when it was first designed by renowned architect Nikolay Buniatyan. Expect marble bathrooms, gilded mirrors and plush bathrobes in every room – some come with private balconies and a bottle of complimentary Italian wine on arrival. Perched on the hotel’s sun-drenched roof, you’ll find the outdoor pool, complete with some of the best views of the city.

Tufenkian Historic Yerevan Hotel

Located across the road from the outdoor Vernissage market, the Tufenkian Historic Hotel channels design influences from Armenia’s historic textiles and architecture in this modern building. 84 modern rooms range from standard kings up to the Presidential Suite, with its own balcony and fireplace. The light-filled restaurant serves up top Armenian cuisine, made with fresh local ingredients. Don’t forget to check out the slender outdoor pool with its inviting terrace.

Golden Palace Hotel

Frequently mentioned as one of the best hotels in Yerevan, the Golden Palace Hotel is a charming old school option. Each of the rooms’ design has been carefully crafted, with authentic Italian furniture, extra-comfortable bedding and luxury toiletries included as standard. With excellent transport links to the wider area, the hotel handily runs a private shuttle service to and from the nearby Zvartnots International Airport.

Hyatt Place Yerevan

For a central location, you can’t beat the Hyatt Place, situated on Republic Square. Modern rooms feature super comfortable Eurotop mattresses, large desks for remote working and cosy corner sofas that double as beds for kids. Breakfast is a real highlight – be sure to try the Armenian omelette for breakfast, as it’s chef Arthur’s speciality. As well as late check-out, the Hyatt also has a 24/7 cafe known as the Market, perfect for night-time snacks.

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Yerevan City Centre

A stone’s throw away from both the renowned Blue Mosque and Sergei Parajanov Museum, the DoubleTree is one of our top choices in Yerevan. On top of the elegant guest rooms, you’ll be granted complimentary access to the hotel’s spa and fitness facility, featuring a Roman steam bath. Be sure to reserve a table at Mora, the in-house restaurant, which serves Italian, Mediterranean and Armenian dishes – all overseen by chef Rocco Pugliese.

Marriott Yerevan

Located right in the centre of Republic Square, referred to by locals as the Hraparak, this hotel is easily one of the best choices for accommodation in Yerevan. Book the Executive Balcony Suite with its private terrace and watch all of Yerevan go by, from newlyweds circling the square in decorated limousines – a local custom – to the fountain shows that take place in the evening. A real highlight here is the rooftop pool and sun terrace, open seasonally.

Paris Hotel Yerevan

This boutique hotel, located in downtown Yerevan, has the perfect touch of French-inspired chic. The lobby’s decor consists of creamy whites and soothing neutrals, while the guest rooms are equally inviting in both comfort and design. There is delicious French cuisine offered at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. On warm evenings, you can head up to the rooftop restaurant and bar to watch the sunset over Yerevan – it comes alive on weekends with live music.

Nova Hotel Yerevan

This centrally located hotel boasts modern design and bright colours. All the important landmarks are close by, including Republic Square and the National Theatre of Opera and Ballet. If you’re on a budget, the economy room offers a good deal, including toiletries and coffee/tea facilities – upgrade to a studio for its extra-large bed and private balcony. A breakfast buffet is included and is served until 11am on weekends, ideal for late risers.

Ani Plaza Hotel

If you’re looking for size, the Ani Plaza is the largest hotel in Yerevan. Located in the entertainment and business district of the city, this four-star hotel is within walking distance of Republic Square, the Cascade and the National Gallery. Beyond the standard rooms, there are singles for solo travellers as well as interconnecting rooms for families – some even have panoramic views of Mount Ararat and Yerevan. Take advantage of the excellent breakfast buffet, indoor swimming pool, sauna and beauty salon.

Hotel National

If you prefer a boutique hotel instead of a chain, book Hotel National. Rooms are decorated in neutral tones, while the common areas offer more quirky design touches, including vintage lamps and Chesterfield-style sofas. Finish the day with a relaxing swim in the indoor pool, followed by a steam in the Turkish bath – or head down to the dimly-lit cigar lounge for a whiskey nightcap.

North Avenue Hotel

Northern Avenue is rapidly becoming the Rodeo Drive or Fifth Avenue of Yerevan, featuring luxury designer stores, boutiques and restaurants. This hotel is right on the avenue, ideal for those looking to shop or dine on the city’s finest gourmet food. Inside, North Avenue is designed with a sleek, modern touch, and features an eclectic winding staircase. Be sure to book a table at La Perla, the hotel’s Spanish restaurant, which receives praise for its Mediterranean cuisine as well as for its impressive wine inventory.
