Staff is very unprofessional. We asked for room with fan, they priced it +15!!!! Usd more and provided us keys. Room had no fan... We changed room and it had no blanket and heating... Breakfast is terrible - warmed yesterdays things.
Service man asked us for additional 3 USD for car parking in front of hotel!!! They claimed that wifi is working in rooms but it didn't. Hotels of beggars and liars. NOT RECOMENDED!

The hotel is well located (5 minute walk to the main square). However, the rooms are small and outdated and the shower did not have any hot water. We had initially reserved the room for 2 weeks but stayed there only for 2 nights. We instead found a condo for rent for half the price and 3 times the size. I am sure there are better accommodations than this hotel in Yerevan.

I stayed in several different places in Yerevan on a recent visit. While the decor at the Shirak is a little dated it's in a great location (central yet quiet), staff are helpful and the prices are significantly lower than for many other places in the city. Breakfast was also noteworthy. Since it's a relatively large hotel they are able to provide a large number of options without fear of wastage. In smaller places you may just get cheese, salami, bread and jam.
Since it was a long trip I was very pleased when I was able to arrange for the maid who cleaned my room to do some laundry for me.

Room Tip: I think they have rooms with views of Ararat but I didn't get one!

We stayed here one night and our room was very comfortable. Everything was clean, the bathroom had hot water and good water pressure. The breakfast is ample and staff are friendly. Rooms at the front of the hotel have great views of Mt Ararat.

Accomodation in Yerevan is expensive so it is probably worth trying to book in advance to get a decent price.

Soviet style hotel with reasonable rooms and prices, and excellent situated in town. Service probably good: the cab that we ordered for 03:00 in the night was there in time. Front rooms have balconies and view on Ararat - when weather is fine.

Cleartrip charged Rs.5250 for the room wherein the standard tariff of the hotel was Rs 3000 which i came to know after checking in.
Moreover, they had an offer of 35% discount on the given date i booked and they donot take the discounted amount but the full amount claiming that they will reimburse back the discount to the same credit card and they do NOT do that.
Simply- the bunch of cheaters !!!
I donot recommend anyone to use cleartrip rather book by yourself directly at the hotel.

It is an average hotel ,with a very good location,if you have travelled to Yerevan to visit the city and enjoy this so called open museum city ,it's suitable,especially if your room is a luxury room(the standard rooms are small and not comfortable),but if you intend to stay in the hotel and use the facilities like pool ,gym and massage(though I do not imagine anybody comes to Yerevan and waste his time staying in the hotel!) it's not a good choice.the staff are polite and friendly and if you have a good tour guide (as we had the best one) ,visiting Yerevan will be an incredible experience,the trip you will never forget.
