Homestay accommodation in Yerevan

In Yerevan, the capital of Armenia, homestays are an affordable and comfortable form of accommodation. There are several of them in the central part of the city and some more further away.

At spring, 2009, the prices were typically between 5000 and 7000 dram per night per person That's about 10 to 13 euros, or 13 to 19 USD. There were also some cheaper ones where one would have had to share room with several other people as well as more expensive ones.

An up to date list of accommodations is available in the Armenia tourist office at Nalbandyan street (opposite to Hanrapetutyan Hraparak metro station).

Below there are 12 photographs of three different homestay places that I visited with my sister in the end of May and beginning of June, 2009.

Our first homestay was that of Anahit Stepanyan at 5 Sayat-Nova street, just next to the Opera house. It was nice and cozy place and seems to be popular. Anahit speaks good English which is not that common in Armenia.

In the same building, there are also two other homestay places (Anahit Avetisyan and Gayaneh Simonyan).

When we returned to Yerevan few days later we decided to try Simonyan's place but that was full. She found us another place not far away where a family was renting rooms from an empty apartment next to their own one. That was a little bit grubby but not bad at all.

Our last homestay in Yerevan became our favourite: Raffik's B&B at 40 Pushkin street (apt #66). It was a home of an old couple called Raffik and Gohar. The price included a very good breakfast. However, they speak only Armenian and Russian (their grand-daughter speaks good English if she is present).
