“centre of frendship”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Rooms are very spacious and clean. The beds are comfortable. You can use the internet in your room (if your have a notebook) or in the lobby. It is free.
The breakfast quite simple and monotonous. But it is the only minus of the hotel. All stuff are very-very friendly and kind and polite.
The view from the window are specifical. You can see just the small piece of the Republic Square and the large building area. But it is no noisy here. That is why, the higher the better.

Absolutely ideal place for living in Yerevan. It is the centre of the city, near the Republic Square and Nord Prospect. You can visit The National Gallery and Armenium History Museum (5 minute walk), to see the color music fountain every evening (5 minute walk), to walk along Abovyan street and Nord Prospect - very nice places for free time, and to visit The Russian Theatre (10 minute walk) or Armenian Show in Ararat restaurant at the Republic Square.

It is very easy to walk to the most of major tourist sites, for example, to the Vernisage and to the fruit Market. The fruites and dry fruites are the best in the world!!!

It is a lot of cafe and restaurants close to the hotel. The best coffee in the Jazzve.

Room Tip: The higher the better

Our first two nights in Armenia were spent at the Aviatrans Hotel. It is in a brilliant location - literally a minute's walk from Republic Square and close to major tourist sites. If you're interested in luxury shopping you can cross the road and find a selection of shops stocking brands, but a five minute walk will bring you to the weekend flea market which is much more fun!
The square itself is a 'must see' - impressive architecture, and at night, with the lights playing on the fountain and a musical accompaniement (unfortunately not live) it draws a wide selection of people and gives you a great opportunity to mingle with the crowd.
The hotel is quiet and clean, and the rooms (we were in a regular twin) well-sized. The buffet breakfast is more than adquate: eggs, cheeses, vegetables, an eclectic choice of hot dishes (spaghetti one morning!) fruit and pastries.
The staff were pleasant and helpful.

" Aviatrans Hotel" is located on Abovyan street which is tryly the heart of the city, in just a walking distance from all main business centers and sightseeings in the city of Yerevan.
The rooms are not luxuary , but normal and clean. I stayed at Deluxe single which was quite spaciouse for the hotel in this range. The slippers, shampoo, soap are provided. The breakfast is standard, but quite O.K. The elevator is a bit small and shabby, but it functions normally. Maybe " Aviatrans" is a bit soviet, and lacks soul, but in general, the hotel is a good value for money, and no one can expect something extraordinnary for that price. I would recommend it to both business travellers and tourists.

I arrived at this hotel to a room with two of three lights not working, an Internet cable too short by four metres and a porter who who refused to leave my room without a tip.

The staff are slow and uninterested lounging about on the settees, the rooms and furniture are tired and depressed, the atmosphere bleak. Breakfast begins at 8m. N otel is mostly cleanand the receptionists apologetic. There are much better hotels in Yerevan.

A hotel of almost last resort

Room Tip: Avoid a view over the building site.

The Aviatrans is an average business class hotel. It could do with some modernisation. It has large comfortable rooms and a decent breakfast buffet. We had a double bed, but unfortunately these beds only have a single duvet. We heard others had the same problem. The location of the hotel makes up for everything. It is only a few steps to Republic Square, and it is within easy walking distance of many good restaurants and shops.

Are you looking for a hotel just downtown, but at a fair rate? Rooms should be much improved, mine looked a little bit shabby, but the location is remarkable. I would definitively go back to this hotel, anyway.

The hotel was built in 1998 and renovated in 2010. It has 55 rooms and is situated a couple of minutes walk from Republic Square. The drive by car to the airport took 20 minutes.

I really enjoyed my stay. The staff were friendly. The hotel and my room were clean, tidy and well furnished. Breakfast was a buffet, I didn't have any other meals here as there are plenty of cafes on the road outside the hotel.
