“Not a 5 star, for sure”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2006

Just a poor sample of what a 5 star hotel may mean. Carpets are dirty and with stains. Breakfast is poor and bad presented. Swimming pool is small and water is terribly cold. There is no solarium. The gym has no machines...
For this kind of mony there are many other better options, believe me. Try the Golden Tulip. It's not great, but it's defenitely better.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2006

The hotel is in a funky postmodern
building that it shares with a Mercedes dealership;
there is a beautiful atrium in the center with a fountain
and bar. The rooms are nothing special (thin bedding, and
a small bathroom), but they are clean and functional, and
come complete with free wireless and wired internet connections.
I tried only the wired internet, which was a bit flaky but after a few
attempts worked well enough. The public areas are fun to walk through, although
a few sections of the building seemed to be works-in-progress.
There is a small pool, a sauna, and a somewhat-decrepit fitness room.
The restaurant served a good breakfast spread (included in the
standard rate); I am not sure if it served dinner, and the "piano bar"
that was advertised in the lobby was closed during my stay.

The price here was cheaper than at the Marriott, and the location is only
slightly worse: about 10 minutes walk to republic square; you have
to cross one busy street, and after that you stroll past a series
of pleasant parks and cafes. My only warning is that
this is by no means a full-service hotel. Often during my stay there was
only one person on duty who could speak to non-Armenian-speaking guests.
Since that person doubled as receptionist, telephone operator,
and manager-on-duty, she/he would normally only have a few seconds
to answer questions between phone calls or other crises. On the other
hand, I didn't find the "do-it-yourself" attitude of the hotel unpleasant.
It meant you didn't have someone bowing at every turn, and the fact that
the pool and sauna were there for use unsupervised 24 hours made
these areas quieter and more convenient. If you do not require a lot
of help getting around the city and country, this is a very reasonable place
to stay.
