Nice, Affordable, Clean, and Friendly!

4.4 on October 19, 2012

I stayed here for five nights in September and recommend it to anyone looking for an authentic taste of Armenia hospitality on a budget. The basics: My room was large and comfortable, with a nice view of the gorge. The location is convenient, about a 10 min. walk to the Metro. The free WIFI worked well. The breakfasts were typical Armenian-style, with breads, cheeses, cereal, honey, butter, coffee, tea and some variety each morning (such as omelets or buckwheat). The shared bathroom was clean and modern, available whenever I needed it, and had plenty of hot water. There were no problems with leaving early or returning late at night -- someone was always available to open the door. The real advantages: Zhanna, Boris, and the rest of the family are very friendly, welcoming, and hospitable -- they will look after you and treat you just like family. Staying at Boris's is a nice blend between a family homestay and a typical B&B. Boris gladly handled arrangements for me (ordering a cab, getting information regarding tours, etc.). Zhanna is a dear, kind person and a gracious host. A stay at the B&B is a chance to gain an honest snapshot into life in Yerevan, enjoy the company of the family and fellow guests, and engage in conversations/share experiences. The B&B certainly has more Armenian character and authenticity than a hostel or budget hotel. Tips: Boris speaks excellent English, but he is not always at the B&B, so some familiarity with Armenian or Russian is helpful. There is no sign outside on the front gate to indicate the B&B, only the house number and a buzzer, so you might have a bit of difficulty finding it at first. I would recommend this B&B to travelers looking for a nice, affordable stay and those who enjoy the interaction and idiosyncratic adventure that comes along with any family homestay. It's an excellent value and a unique experience, as you are truly folded into the life of the family.

Happy 5 day stay in Boris's

Very friendly family make you welcome in their family home. This is not like a hotel, as you have to pass through the family's living space when you come and go each day. Excellent and varied breakfasts - vegetarian diet was requested and provided. The area is quiet but near to rapid metro system and a great cheap Georgian restaurant is 10 mins walk. One tip: you must visit the Armenian Memorial - a 20 min walk over the bridge - a moving experience. Where would I stay on my next trip to Yerevan? Boris's of course!


It will be the highlight of your trip

I stayed here beginning of March for two days. It was seriously the highlight of my trip. I not only enjoyed my stay but I also made new friendship. Airport Pickup: Boris, the son, was waiting for me in the airport and he was so kind to offer to tour me around downtown by car before going to the b&b. Upon Arrival: As soon as I walked in, the whole family came out to welcome me. They also invited me to join them for a traditional Armenian tea and pastries (Which was perfect when coming out of a long flight) and Boris also taught me a traditional Armenian game board. Room: Very clean, sunny, and includes heated bed. You can also use the family's computer and WIFI. Breakfast: The best food you can ever have in Armenia The grandmother Janna, prepares it with love and has enough varieties. Butter, White Honey, Cheese, Serials , Eggs and traditional Armenian food ...etc Tours: They can organize trips for you, so do ask. I asked the sister, Susanna( very sweet and warm), to go on a tour to Gherad . I was amazed by her honesty. She recommended a tour company because it's cheaper for a one person than going with them- this is due to the fuel cost- However, i decided to go with them because of their honesty and flexibility in timing. I really travel a lot around the world but I never felt home as much as I felt in Bori's family house. The family will do their best to make you feel comfortable, very honest and helpful.
