Armenia hotels portal


The choices regarding tourists’ destinations depend on the duration of visit, personality and  needs, and finances.

Those who prefer dynamic recreation may choose between two types of activity: bus voyages or hiking trails. Contrarily, lovers of quiet lifestyles favor for spending more time in a hotel room, silence, admiring for fascinating sunrises and sunsets, enchanting landscapes, tasting of local varieties of splendid wines and the indescribable taste of the national cuisine. 

In short, it's worth visiting both the traditional tourist facilities, and small family hotels and hostels where tourists are offered delicious homemade food made of fresh products from family farms and homemade wines from private cellars. Also, the hosts will tell you about a lot of interesting stories and recount historical facts, as well legends reached to us by word of mouth, fairy tales and sayings, anecdotes and narratives from folklore.
