I was booked in here by the company organising my tour of Armenia and had no idea what to expect, so had a pleasant surprise. I was shown into a large room with lots of windows with white lacy curtains and doors onto the covered balcony. Technically my bathroom was shared so it did involve going out of my room but that was into a private corridor and no-one else was using the bathroom. The bathroom was a bit odd - there was a funny tank of water balanced over the bath/shower with some dodgy looking electrics (though I think they were not connected) so headroom was tight!
The house is owned by a doctor/consultant and his wife. She gets up in the morning and prepares a great breakfast.
You need a car to get there, and to get out to a restaurant in the evening, though my guide said the hostess did offer an evening meal sometimes.
It is a guesthouse, not a hotel, so my 4* rating is on that basis.
There is a new extension, almost complete, which has been decorated in what seems to be thought of as a 'venetian' style. Ugh! And there is talk of a swimming pool/sauna - their website suggests they are there already, but I think not.
