Armine was helpful and prompt as usual. I booked last minute and her apt was already being used, but she was able to put me in a room at the Berlin Hotel for no extra charge. She made sure I was taken care of and checked in on me to see if I needed anything. I would definitely suggest her for anyone traveling to Gyumri.
My second time staying at Armine's place. It was great as always! Very accommodating to my time schedule with when I arrived and left. The food was amazing. Also the apartment was warm with plenty of warm water for showering, which is very important in the winter time in Gyumri. I will definitely stay here again and suggest it to all my friends that go to Gyumri.
This was my second stay with Armine at the apartment in Gyumri, and again it was a good time! The apartment is really nice, and Armine is very helpfull and friendly. I can strongly recomand to stay with her :)
This was my second stay with Armine at the apartment in Gyumri, and I can honestly say we enjoyed everything about our stay once again. The apartment was separated from the rest of the home, so very private and comfortable, and had all the advertised amenities. We enjoyed Armine's delicious breakfast, as well as her traditional Armenian dishes for lunch. She was also extremely helpful in recommending tours and sites for us to see for the rest of our stay in Armenia. I would definitely recommend her apartment for anyone visiting Gyumri for any period of time!
If you think that Gyumri is just another provincial town in Armenia, think again. It is a really interesting old town, with some cobbled streets, one of the oldest parks in Armenia and beautiful old buildings, all be it, many of them still showing the effects of the earthquake in 1988. Like so much in Armenia, it is not so much their rich and varied history,fascinating though this is, but the hospitality and warmth of the people, especially in Gyumri, which struck us most. Armine and her family are no exception. We were met from the train station by her teenage son Armin, who took us to their beautiful house. We stayed in a newly built extension, which was a Swiss chalet open plan style accommodation, with a double bed and a single bed reached by a ladder above it. Everything was new, clean and worked perfectly. Armine is a brilliant cook and we decided to take up her offer of an evening meal. We were not disappointed, we had three of them and each was better than the last. Armin her son, who speaks excellent English (although he told us he is much better at German), showed us round Gyumri, including his school and took us to a small concert. Her husband Alex is a manager of a local hotel and speaks perfect English. He was very kind in arranging trips to a local prehistoric fort and a prehistoric stone circle, as well as a local monastery and a very interesting farm by the Georgian border. Even the grandmother, who only speaks Armenian greeted us with such a warm, broad and endearing smile that it almost splits her face in two. For anyone staying in Gyumri this place is a must, but even if you are not planning a visit to Gyumri it is worth making a detour, just to stay here and enjoy Armine's hospitality.
This is the best place to stay in Gyumri!!! Very comfortable modern apartment with a great location and an even better host. Armine gave me a warm welcome the moment I arrived. She went out of her way to ensure all of my needs were met and offered to help with anything I needed during my stay in Gyumri. Best of all, her cooking is amazing! I choose to stay here based off a friend's recommendation and Armine managed to exceed my expectations.
I had the pleasure of staying with Armine at her lovely home in Gyumri. The place we stayed was separated from her home so it was very private. Our reservation was last minute and we were lucky that she responded very quickly to our message. We had an amazing breakfast and a delicious three course lunch at the hour that we desired. Her son gave us a great tour of the city which was very helpful. Overall, she is very accommodating and welcoming. I would recommend to skip your hotel reservation and immerse yourself in a wonderful cultural and experience.
