    « A 4 star hotel which is at the most a 2 star »

    This hotel is doing no good the Best Western trademark. We stayed in many Best Western hotels, which overall are good, but this one has been the worst. The hotel is aging badly. The rooms are old fashioned and not nicely decorated. The windows of the breakfast room were dirty and one was even broken which does not make it very appealing. Food for breakfast was not up to the quality you would expect for a four star. For dinner we were the only guests. There were no cocktails, half of the dishes were missing and the food we ordered was not good (lamb with more fat and bones than meat). We complained and were told that this is Armenian food, but then everywhere else we did not have to complain about food. Very friendly person at the reception. The first room we were introduced had a really bad smell. He apologized and immediately offered another one + upgrade. Location is nice along the lake (and adjacent to the busy main road)

Rooms and beds were comfortable, breakfast buffet was exceptional.The rooms have excellent views of Lake Sevan.Very helpful and friendly staff. The hotel is also near Sevanavank an incredible armenian monastery on a island. Strongly recommend it to everybody who wants to relax and have a great holiday !!!

    « Nothing to write home about »

    The worst place for adults. Bedroom upstairs of the cottage, 17 stairs to go down to bathroom. A lot of bugs. Food was ok for dinner and brakefast. The lake is right next to the hotel. Pool looked nice. We did not use it.

    « If this is the "Best Western" what would be the "Worst" »

    Little by little I am disappointing of the hotels under Brand "Best Western" . I believe this brand is sold one time and there is no supervision or revising on the hotel quality. I am very regretful why I did not read the reviews before I book. I just looked at the photo and by some clicks I booked this hotel. Since Sevan was near the places I wanted to visit I chose this hotel as our base.The hotel location is somewhere at the road and near now center you may go for shopping or dining. The hotel walls was very high and the security was wearing uniform like Army. So it gave us the imagine going to a military center. The guard who could not speak English forced us to park in the ruin land outside the hotel and without helping us to carry the luggage, guided us to the reception. Receptionist ask us many questions ( was in an investigation) and despite our request gave us a Double-story villa. in the middle. I believe there was just another guest at this hotel. The villa was located in two queues. and the space between them is leading to the lake. There was a sitting space and the bathroom at the ground floor and two tiny rooms upstairs with a small uncomfortable beds with a very tiny blanket at each room. The room was very cold and the wind were coming in though the doors and windows. We were told if we want dinner we should go before 9:00 p,m. The dining hall was at the second floor, It was large but empty besides cold. ( Have you watched Shining Movie?). The food quality was not ideal but there was no other choice. We just saw one guy serving. When we return back we asked the extra blankets which they brought for us. The radiators in the rooms were warm ( about twenty degree centigrade) and the outside was minus ten. So could not sleep. Tomorrow, we went for the breakfast. There was not many choices. The same guy at the restaurant was there. We asked to take one piece of bread and cheese for my son to the villa since he was sick and did not came with us. But that man in a very rude manner said "No No not possible" So adding all this together we decided to leave. It was snowing badly and when we were leaving , we were realizing the movie " Escape from Gulag" just to give you the feeling. The hotel itself is attached to the lake and the villas should not be very bad ( space for 3 persons not more) in the summer. So if you are satisfied with a 1-2 star motel you may consider this hotel as a choice but if you want service, hospitality and comfort, plus internet, seek it somewhere else.

    « Good 3* but not more! »

    Overall the hotel is good for 3*, but the price is too high for low season! We stayed with family in junior suite. The room with heating, WiFi - no! (Nobody could fix it):-(, TV has only 10 ch! Good restaurant, though a lot of things missing from menu. Whatever, the stay was excellent. Note: for summer time has good swimming pool, dock for boats, next door beach!

    « The worst experience of hospitality »

    We stayed in this hotel for one night from 27-28 of August. The hotel is the shame of Best western chain, the rooms are a very poor quality, the stuff allowed drunk guests to swim in the pool, who made so much of noise. We tried to reach reception 2 times and complained, but unsuccessfully... We filled us as in 1-2 star bad quality motel. Neither food nor service was even of average quality. My strong advise is if you are visiting Sevan always pass away this hotel... Never will come back here again!!

    « This place is Joke »

    I gave 2 stars because the place is kept clean and and there was 1 person in whole place who was actually friendly and his name was Rubik he was the bell boy I'm Armenian I know how the live is like there but I lived in USA for past 23 years Armenia if you want tourist to come back learn how to give better service Service sucks!! The reception lady has attitude every time you ask somebody question they look at you like what the hell do you want!! If you charging people American Prices like $150 a night then you should service people like America does We had to ask for towels , for blankets nothing was in a room When we ordered food nobody came back to clean Our room was never cleaned the 2 nights we stayed We asked for glasses they told me tomorrow ?? Really ?? The wifi sucks ! I told the reception wifi doesn't work she said walk around the place you'll find it? Waiters are absolutely horrible!! I mean raise you're Standards honestly I'm very disappointed I would never come back here ever!! Even if you paid me !! And if you go for free breakfast they make you feel like they donating food for you Are you kidding me !! I should went to Miami and at least all the money I spent in Armenia I would enjoy my vacation not get aggravated every day by simple things

    « Got a nice upgrade »

    My review is limited in that we only stayed here for one night. We got upgraded to a suite with two upstairs bedrooms but the bathroom was downstairs. It had a separate living/sitting room and a small balcony. The bedroom was fine and the place was clean. The carpet on the stairs was a little worn. There was no water in the pool. The location is right on the lake and it was quiet. I ate in the restaurant, chicken soup and Greek salad, which were fine. They didn't have the soup I wanted. The dining room seemed to be a ballroom. There weren't many people staying in the hotel that night. The TV had only one channel. Wifi connection was strong. I would give it 3 1/2 stars if that were possible.

    I Have been there last year during August Somehow the only good thing is pool and the view i think the restaurant is expensive and not very tasty But it is somehow considered one of the best hotels in Sevan city

    « The worst place we stayed at during our 10 days trip to Armenia »

    Although it has the best access to the famous Lake Sevan, this hotel was really bad. We thought it's "international" name would give it some standard but it didn't . On the contrary B&Bs and guest houses are alot better to stay than such hotels. first of all the receptionist started off by complaining about the wifi because it was soon "April 24" and there was an influx of tourists. she should be happy and proud about that not whining. 2nd of all the room was beyond dirty, i was thankful that i had brought along extra sheets and blankets with me... there was arm hair on the sheets which i don't want to remember. we are not looking for luxury, but hygiene at least!!! although the service is good and most oft he people are working hard, but the food was also very bad and i am comparing to the dozens of places we went to in our 10 day trip including hotels and restaurants. Bread is not fresh, fruits are not only not fresh but discolored, everything was bad to the point where we decided to leave for Yerevan rather than spend the day there. There was one positive thing, and this is the young bell boy, early 20s or a teenager. i wish i could remember his name because he was so pleasant and hard working, they should be proud to have him there.

    « Nice hotel, one of the best at Sevan lake »

    We stayed at the hotel in May which is definitely not a high season at Sevan. We enjoyed an almost empty placed but got a full service. Personnel was very welcomed and nice. Besides we've got a better room: a cottage instead of a room for two

    « Good locatrion, good hotel »

    This is a chalet style resort on the shores of Lake Sevan. The entrance looks grim but once inside things seem OK. The chalets are clean, spacious and comfortable. There is a central dining/bar area which is quite good although the service is grim! Orders are taken and bills written out before the food/drink is served with a suspicious look at the customer! I had dinner here and that was good. There is a big central swimming pool all though at the time of my visit it had been drained. No apologies was offered for this! The view of the lake is stunning this good location saves the day for this average place.

    « Bring nose plugs. »

    Not a bad location right on the lake,however. Bedrooms upstairs, bathrooms downstairs which was a real pain in the butt. Bad sewage smell in the room particularly when you would flush the toilet. Water and stench would regurgitate into the sink. Disgusting carpeting. The breakfast wasn't bad. Internet did not work.
