This is one of the most extraordinary hotels I have ever stayed in, and it's not an experience I wish to repeat. It looks as if it was built in the Soviet era as what they imagined was a luxury hotel, and is still run in the Soviet way.We were there one night, on a tour of Armenia. It is true to say that our room was vast, but there was hardly anything in it apart from a bed, a settee, and two elaborately gilded but uncomfotable chairs. The bed was on of the hardest I have ever slept on (actually, I didn't sleep very much), and other couples on our tour had the same experience. The only curtains were very thin, and didn't keep out any light. The bathroom was worn and stained, with cheap soap and towels. Staff were not very friendly or helpful. Breakfast was dire - poor bread and meat, nearly raw eggs, and the worst 'coffee' I have ever tasted (a thin coffee powder, apparently pre-mixed with dried milk and sugar). Not surpisingly, apart from our tour group, there appeared to be no other guests!
