Me and my wife have been to Boris's Family B&B at the beginning of June and we have returned 4 times until the early July during our business travels in Armenia. We liked the location and the family very much - the house is situated on a high bank of the Hrazdan river, with a wonderful view. Even during very hot days, when it was becoming unpleasant in the centre, there was a fresh breeze here and we could sleep very well. Except of the usual cold breakfast dishes, there was every morning one warm, tasteful dish for the breakfast and always a different one! The Wi-Fi internet connection is working very well, what was important for us. We also enjoyed the company of other travellers at the breakfast table and the exchange of experiences. The house is 10 minutes walk from a metro station, with very frequent and quick connections to the city centre. It is also easy to pick up a taxi nearby or to let the family to call one. But during the rush hours the metro is usually the quicker option.
The family is very friendly and it helped us in a number of ways. One story for all, from our penultimate day in Yerevan: Only thanks to the Boris help I was able to get a damaged car repaired at a Saturday evening. Boris not only went with me to the car service (that was closing!), he also accompanied me during the search of the car parts that needed to be quickly bought and replaced. This all despite the fact that he was just leaving the house with a friend of him when I asked him for help. Although he and his friend have spent almost two hours helping to resolve my car problems, they refused any compensation.
There is only a single point that was missing to our complete satisfaction with this accomodation - the fact that the rooms facing the Hrazdan river do not have private bathrooms. I leave this without an effect on the overall rating, because this is calculated in the price for the given rooms and because this becomes a problem only at times when the B&B is full and the breakfast times and going-to-bed times of various visitors start to collide. The overall value for the accomodation is excellent.
