Villa Delenda
Ranked #5 of 125 Yerevan B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Villa Delenda is an old-style Armenian villa about one block from Republic Square.

I loved the old style rooms of this hotel. Upon check-in, I was given the option of two rooms, and saw that each room was decorated and styled differently with antique and/or ethnic furniture. The 8 rooms at Villa Delenda are named after ancient Armenian cities and my room was Room Dvin. It was just the right size for a couple or a solo traveler and very comfortable. The ensuite bathroom was lovely and there is even an extra counter for toiletries/amenities which was a nice touch.

Each guest is given their own set of keys (front gate and room) to come and go as they wish.

Wi-Fi strength was good,in the rooms and elsewhere in the building too.

Breakfast was served around a big table where guest interacted and shared stories of their travels. The hotel used lovely tableware that could be found in their on-site ceramic shop. They served fresh baked breads, jams, cheese, hams, a few choices of yogurt, juices, cheesey bread, eggs, etc

Overall, one of the better hotels on my trip in Armenia and I was quite happy with my stay.

However, for anyone else considering Villa Delenda, do note that it is not a full service hotel so there are things that Villa Delenda may or may not be able to do for you,
Because of the structure of the old building, noise may travel. This is not something that bothers me but for anyone who's a light sleeper it is something to note.
Also, they only take cash.

Room Tip: Rooms that are not on the ground floor may be better for light sleepers.

It is an old villa where is locate the italian armenia association. Really confortabile and near the city center. Our room was in the front part..a Little bit noisy but with plenty of space. The air conditio ing. Was not working but...it was not a real problem. Big battuto but problem in mix ing. Hot and cold water....good breakfast....free wi-fi....a real good compromise...

Needed one night in Yerevan for an early morning flight. The staff was welcomed me warmly, arranged a taxi, pointed me is the right direction and within minutes I was making the most of the extremely convenient location with a great afternoon in a lovely city. Comfortable room, easy to use climate control and roomy shower. Check out the stone carvers around the corner. A quiet knock woke me at 3:30 and the smiling concierge wished me asafe trip. Well done.

I arrived at Villa Delenda at 8PM, just in time to check in (I did not know that I would have been locked out, I got lucky). The young ladies at reception were quite pleasant, though we spoke in English and there were some moments of awkwardness. My room was OK, not well let but large. I could hear everything the person upstairs was doing so falling asleep was a bit of a challenge. The shower was OK, but do bring your own shampoo as they do not provide any. Breakfast was good, but the eggs were on the cold side and the coffee was only average. Overall not a terrible place to stay for a night, but there were hotels priced similarly and I think I might have been better off at one of them.

I'm writing this review to let travelers know that Villa Delenda does not accept credit cards. All payment must be made cash only. In the 21st Century, in Armenia's capital city, this should be noted in flashing red letters for prospective guests.

Some travelers will not be bothered by this, but for those who do not like to carry large amounts of cash for bed and board, I hope that this review will be useful.

Villa Delenda is beautifully decorated, but the rooms are extremely small and there are none of the amenities that one expects from a real hotel. Also, reception is in the basement and one has to walk downstairs into the basement for any sort of service. Service is also provided by very young women - possibly teenagers. There is also no reception or service at night, and guests are given keys to let themselves in and out of the building. Because of all of these factors, I think that it should be classified as a 'bed and breakfast' NOT a proper hotel.

As to location, Villa Delenda is near a nice park, but the area is mixed - older properties that are falling apart along side those that are nicely maintained. I recommend something on or near Republic Square - that is a better location.

Stayed here for 3 nights, overall it was a positive experience. At times the service could have been better, but I think it was more of a language issue rather than the service itself but the reception staff did appear awkward at times.

The breakfast is filling, a variety of breads, eggs and cheeses (very nice!) and the rooms a bargain for what you pay. Large, spacious with a bathroom attached.

The location is perfect, a 5 minute walk from the city centre near some cafes and bars.

I would recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in Yerevan!

The hotel is in the heart of the city - excellent location. The price is also very good.

The staff was very friendly. I really appreciated all the advice Lucinda gave me (I think this was her name, a very young teacher in Spanish and English who works at the hotel).

There is no night reception and you need a key for the front door. So if you arrive at night, call at the hotel to warn them. There was an old woman, who spoke Russian, who opened the hotel for me. She was waiting for me for more than an hour at night and nevertheless greeted me with a smile. Needless to say, there is no fitness or room service :-).

The breakfast was abundant.

My room was spacious and pleasant. The atmosphere is pleasant - but it is very different from what you would expect as it is an old style building, furniture and interior. The floors "sing". The bed was comfortable.

My room faced the street which was very loud in the morning (rush hour). I had ear plugs and was fine.

The bathroom is very basic but do not be shocked - all works.

I was only one night, so better read also other comments. Also look at the pictures to see whether it is the right style for you. I can recommend it for easy going tourists who look for a less expensive accommodation and are in Yerevan to learn about the culture and get some real life experience. There is a shop in the basement of the hotel which sells Armenian ceramics.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not face the street.
