I have stayed at this small hotel guest house twice. It's somewhere i like a lot. It's kinda like being home very laid back no fuss. You get a house key with the room key so you can come and go as you like. It has a good location and Armenian Street has many different things happening there and is... More

Didn't even realize Armenia House was a guesthouse until I went to place a review here in Tripadvisor. From the street it presents as a cafe. Located within one of the busiest streets within old George Town - Armenia House is run by a number of generations from the same family and it shows in the relaxed genuine service they... More

We arrived very late (11pm), but the host was waiting us and welcomed us warmly at the door. The aircon worked great and the rooms were clean, comfortable, with plenty of plugs, and the beds were nice--simple room, but that's all we needed. Breakfast the next morning was good, too, and the owner gave great suggestions for things to do... More

I was the only guest when I stayed here but would visit again. Clean and comfortable rooms and excellent hot showers with good water pressure. Centrally located this is one of the better budget options in Georgetown, although at $40 for a double room is at the higher end of budget options. Recommended.

Lately, my sister and I spent a few days at this lovely guesthouse. We were impressed by the friendliness of the owner. She was very helpful to us, in so many different ways. The rooms are clean, the beds and especially the pillows are very comfy and the coffee shop downstairs has exceptionally good smoothies on offer. The location of... More

We were lucky enough to stay at Armenian House for 6 nights, and we really enjoyed our stay. The location is superb and all our favourite spots were a short walk away; you're in the middle of the old heritage part of town which is nice. The rooms were tastefully decorated, the staff very friendly and helpful, the showers were... More

Stayed there for 3 days with my family and we had a nice weekend. Very nice old building and location is perfect to see everything. You can easily find restaurant nearby and The only minor problem if you arrive by car. To get a parking before 5 pm is very difficult as they only have public parking space. And also... More
