“Great location, very good breakfast, friendly and helpful family, quick Wi-Fi”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

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.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the Hrazdan River are fantastic, with fresh air and quiet. If you prefer to have yo...

It is not easy to find this place and it takes about 10 minutes walk or more to the subway station. They have 4 rooms to rent in the higher floor but only one bathroom, so sometimes you need to wait for a long time to get in. Because so many people is using the same bathroom, they should clean it more often.

Only Boris speaks English but he is not home very often, so it is difficult to get information from the other relatives.

The breakfast is all right.

A place where you can feel at home and have a healthy breakfast to start your day.
Just outside the city center, within 15 mins walk to the Opera, it gives you a little peace and quiet from the hussle and bustle of Yerevan.
We stayed 4 nights here exploring the Yerevan area, and enjoyed both the place and the company of other travellers.
If you are not careful, you will spend hours just watching the Ararat behind the Yerevan skyline!
Nice clean rooms, get one with your own facilities though.

A bit of Armenian or Russian will help you out, as Susanna or Boris may not be there.
Eventhough the conversation never reached the rocket science level, we had a great time with the various "baboushkas" who ran the house, and it will be our first choice if returning to Yerevan in the future.
My best recommendations, keep up the good work.

Room Tip: Pick a room with private facilities.

We picked Boris's Family's Bed & Breakfast from a couple of choices and it was the right one. We stayed here 4 nights (even if we just planned for 2 nights at the beginning) and it felt like a piece of home. The atmosphere is really kind and warm and a "no" is not existing! The house and rooms are very clean and spacious and you'll enjoy a good shower in the perfectly equipped bathroom after a long trip.
The house is located in the northern part of Yerevan, a good 10-min footwalk away from the Metro. Internet access (WiFi or cable) is available and breakfast is rich and tasty. (Four times breakfast, four times different)
If I have to chance to come back to Yerevan, this B&B at a family that is easy to take to one's heart would be my first choice!

I would offer this place. it worth the price very much.

Dear Travellers to Armenia,

I just returned back from a short 5 day trip to Yerevan. I stayed at Boris Family's Bed and Breakfast. I had real good time there. The family is very helpful. The place is big and the bedrooms are very clean. I had a large bed with side bathroom, a TV, drawers, etc. The breakfast is rich and diversified. I will return back next time.
Highly recommended!
