My hotel experiences in the region were not very good, but Heghnar Hotel was the exception. I was on a group tour of the region with Hyur Tours and this was the only option offered, but the price of the entire tour was only $200 from Yerevan and that included the hotel, so it can't be very expensive. The staff does their best in English and I had no problems whatsoever communicating with them. Breakfast consisted of one egg (though if you asked you could get more) some bread, cheese, jam and coffee (Armenian or Nescafé, though I got Nescafé even though I asked for Armenian). We had dinner two nights at the hotel, the first night was very good but the second night they served some type of processed meat that I thought was only available in the United States. I'm not even sure what it was but it did not impress. A bottle of red wine was only 1800 drams (less than 5 dollars) -- where can you get a deal like that! It wasn't the best wine I've had, but for the region, which is used to sweeter wines, it was OK. The hotel is a small walk to the center of town, but not so far out that you can't easily access it. While I saw hotels that looked better downtown, given the price and the service here I could easily recommend it.
