“It was a home away from home”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

I arrived at 3Jugs in need of real rest - on a cold December weekend - and felt right at home. The hospitality, the warmth, the meals were all superb. I had the best night's sleep and highly recommend the place. I'll be back for sure - and this time during summer months to experience the amazing apricot garden and the breathtaking views.
Thank you Rouzan, Nina and Narine....for your hospitality and for creating such an amazing space.

When i first started my search for a place to stay in Yerevan, this accommadation had stuck in mind and it was the right choice.
The three jugs did not disapoint at all!
A fantastic stay, everything was clean and very homely
The breakfasts were filled, homemade local prooduce and varied and filling
The hosts were friendly, helpful and i gained a great insight into Armenian,life/history and culture
Due to the time of year(late november) i was the only person there , i felt at home and nothing was to much trouble!
The location is fantastic as it is roughly 12km outside of the capital central, but as taxis as with most things in Armenia was so so cheap it was not an issue.
you get peace being fairly high up and a sound sleep too
I will go back whenever i next go to Armenia
Value for money and just totally enhanced my Armenian experience

Room Tip: All rooms are clean, have good views and are beautifuly furnished Any room is a good room

Our family stayed at the 3 Jugs B&B for a week in August and we had a truly wonderful time there. The food was fantastic, the place was quiet, the taxis were super cheap into Yerevan and it was a close drive to the other attractions around the area (namely the Monastery of Geghard and the temple of Garni). Three Jugs has a fruit orchard, yard, home made bread making, BBQ, a potter who offered interesting classes, a painter and other artists who gave lessons. We and our children were so happy to stay there and relax. Our hosts were really lovely people who made us feel at home. It was an excellent experience; sometimes it’s better not to stay in the capital!!

Room Tip: We had two connecting rooms upstairs with a balcony and a shared bathroom, it was really lovely.

We spent unforgettable week at this beautiful place! The hosts are so warm and welcoming, you feel comfortable and like being at home from the very first moment. The food is delicious and varied; the highlight was the fresh veggies and fruits and the homemade lavash bread. My son (20 months old) enjoyed running around in the specious apricot garden and was enjoying the shade in the warm August days. We took a trip around Armenia (mainly the south-east part) and the 3J hosts (Karen, Nana, Nina, Ruslana and others) organized it with so much taste, and sense for the most important things as well as suitability for travel with kids. We are so grateful for that.
I would recommend 3J to anyone who loves art, informal and warm relationships with people, tasty food, nature and sun! Thanks a million!!!

We stayed for a few days in Three Jugs with my wife and kids and enjoyed a lot the atmosphere and services provided, surrounded by very nice and helpful people showing us the real Armenian hospitality. Located in the nice outskirt of Yerevan and surrounded by fruit gardens it helps you to relax in the nature. Very close to any central locations of the city (just a 10-15 minutes drive in the taxi, which is cheap and quick) especially for those coming from big cities. Perfect solution for big families or a group of friends who wants quiet stay and a good food. Thanks a lot to the staff for their support. Shnorakalutyun! (thank you in Armenian)

We stayed at Three Jugs for a week during the early summer. Based on the glowing reviews, we were a little bit underwhelmed. But overall the experience was good -- it is just a matter of managing your expectations.

The highlight was the food -- certainly unique, and they were very willing to cook all vegetarian food for us.

We primarily had two hostesses while there -- one for the first half of the week, another for the second half. Nobody seemed to actually live there -- they just come through and stay with you for a few days, then hand off the house to the next person. The first spoke almost no English or German. The second spoke some English. Both were super nice and we liked them, but we didn't really have a local source of that much information. So they were able to get us a taxi to town or show us a site that we should go see on the map -- but not really provide more detailed information beyond that. We watched one bread making demonstration, but there didn't seem to be much else going on.

The room we had was nice overall with access to a lovely shared balcony. The bathroom was also shared, but we were mercifully the only guests. The bath had almost no water pressure. Our bed was perhaps the least comfortable bed I've ever slept on except a sofa bed -- really lumpy, almost like sleeping in a tent on the ground outside. So don't go expecting a hotel room. Pretend you'll be sleeping in your Armenian aunt's extra bedroom and you'll be less disappointed.

The location is okay. Taking the taxi to Yerivan is inexpensive and worth it (if the traffic and crazy drivers don't get you, the corrupt police will). Unfortunately, to get to many sites outside of the city, you still have to cross a portion of the city -- there is no road that goes around the city (at least that does not deteriorate into quite literally a 4x4 trail). I had hoped that by being outside of the city, it would make day trips to the various sites easier, but this was not the case.

I still give a very good rating because this is a very good place to stay relative to your other choices in Armenia, particularly if you eat dinner there. You just need to know what to expect.
