We arrived into Alaverdi late in the day just as a storm unleashed a torrential downpour. Thank God we saw the sign for the Iris B&B. We could not find any other options in this town after driving around for almost an hour in the rain so we drove back to the Iris. We did not have reservations but they... More

It may be strange but I came back to Armenia mostly to go back to Iris B&B in Alaverdi. Thanks to Irina and Stepan it is like staying in family, and I had one of the best New Year's Eve in my life. I have been there for almost one week now... Moreover I recommend the place Alaverdi as it... More

I came to Alaverdi with the attention of staying for a few days to explore the strangely alluring town and surrounding monasteries (which are beautiful by the way). I ended up staying over week as Irina and Stephen's hospitality was so marvellous. This place allows you to truly immerse yourself in an Armenian home, while also enjoying the company of... More

We were looking for a local immersion experience while in Armenia. Irina welcomed us, treated us to a fabulous lunch of local ingredients, adapting to our being vegetarian, beginning with some local home vodka. Although we didn't stay there, the space looked most welcoming for campers and folks ready to do Armenia in a local fashion.

This guest house is few km far from Alaverdi, everyone knows about Irina and Stephan, they are very professional, Irina will help you to organize your tours in Lori province, and when you return home, sorry, guesthouse, ask Stephan about Armenian Traditional music. The accomodation is very clean but there is no place to walk around. Ask for the prices... More

I recommend this very friendly homestay north of Armenia, in a forest zone with old ussr industry and out of time monasteries classified by the Unesco. Irina and Stepan are very friendly, food is great (and home-made vodka too). If the very cheap dormitories are too buzy, you have some private room at the second floor, not too expansive

B&B Iris is permeated by the soul of its hosts. Irina and Stepan are wonderful in making you feel like in a big family. Irina is so sweet and always available to give you advise and suggestions. Stepan is simply histrionic, very curious and he knows how to entertain his guests. We had a faboulous dinner in the porch outside... More

I stayed at Iris for a night on my way from Dilijan to Tblisi. It is managed by Irina and her husband with a nice family touch and I have been very satisfied. The place is conveniently located, you can get off the marshrutka right in front of it, and Irina can phone them to stop and pick you up... More

After a rather eventful day, and really late into the night, we find ourselves at their doorstep. They didn't have any free rooms and without any hesitation gave us one of their own for the night!! Not only that, but they brought out all sorts of delicious homemade food for us to have that same night. This was around 2... More
