Armenia is not famous for being particularly gay friendly but in the major destinations as Yerevan can easily find a foreign chain hotel who is gay friendly hotels Yerevan.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons in Armenia may face legal and social challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents, due in part to the lack of laws prohibiting discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity and prevailing negative attitudes about LGBT persons throughout society.
Homosexuality has been legal in Armenia since 2003.However, even though it has been decriminalized, the situation of local lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) citizens has not changed substantially.
Yerevan, Armenia’s capital, is marked by grand Soviet-era architecture. The Matenadaran library, housing thousands of ancient Greek and Armenian manuscripts, dominates its main avenue. Republic Square is the city’s core, with musical water fountains and colonnaded government buildings. The 1920s History Museum of Armenia on the square’s eastern side contains archaeological objects like a circa-3500-B.C. leather shoe.

The hotel’s location is very central. I arrived late after midnight but there were a lot of people in the street so I didn’t find it dangerous at all to walk from the republic square to the hotel at that hour. The room was in good size, clean and cozy although the bathroom amenity was on the simple side-only a bottle of head-to-toe washing gel was provided. The breakfast was good and plenty.
Would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone and would love to come back to the hotel again soon.
The room is on the small side, but very functional. It looks exactly (and I mean exactly) like it does in the photos. Everything was very, very, very clean, and housekeeping was very thorough with organizing our stuff a bit, which I always appreciate. Room was silent–never heard any noise from the street, the hallways, or other floors.
The lobby is definitely a main feature of this hotel: very hip and modern, almost Ikea-esque, dominated by a bar and seating, so a great place to grab a drink. I went down there, late on a Tuesday night, to do some work and have a beer, and it had a healthy crowd–enough so you don’t feel like you’re sitting in an empty hotel lobby. Beers were very reasonable.
And location, of course, is this hotel’s best asset. It’s located right off the pedestrian mall on Northern Avenue, blocks from the opera house, blocks from Republic Square, walkable to just about everything.
Really, only praise for this hotel. It’s not the Four Seasons, of course, but it’s a great deal–everything we could want or expect from this hotel was executed flawlessly. Would definitely stay again.
The hotel has an excellent location right in the centre of Yerevan. It is possible to reach many of the city’s sites within a short walk. There are also a lot of cafes, shops and restaurants around the hotel.
The breakfast was very good – better than the usual ibis breakfast. The variety of cold options was excellent and the quality was good too. There is also a terrace so you can eat your breakfast outside – which was nice.
The front desk staff were exceptionally friendly.
I was very happy with the hotel and would stay here again.

The hotel is very well located in the city centre, close to Republic Square. The room was clean and very comfortable with a great view of the city and mountains on a clear day. The friendliness and level of service of Ramada staff was fantastic.
The location was superb, the breakfast was excellent, the room was comfortable and the shower was the best we had during a two week Caucasus trip. Even the towels were thick, unlike some hotels who provided one thick and one thin one. The bed was like being wrapped in a cocoon.
The negative – the room was small. I was told I could extend the 12pm check out for an hour however my access card was chopped at 12 precisely, but that was easily fixed by the helpful staff.

Offering Montmartre Restaurant-Cafe-Bar with panoramic views of the city and Paris Hotel <span class=”hp-social_proof-item-featured-topic jq_tooltip hp-social_proof-item-featured-topic-element” data-component=”tooltip” data-tooltip-text=”11 review highlights from guests”>Yerevan is located in the centre of Yerevan, 100 m from Republic Square.

From the moment we arrived at this hotel, we were treated as VIPs. The people at the desk were always positive, concerned that we enjoyed our stay and accommodating to our needs. Everything we asked for was immediately attended to. The location of the hotel is perfect. Close to Republic Square and surrounded by several good quality restaurants.
We were in room 801 – which was a very large room. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom modern – with shelf space for two gay men’s toiletries! – and the hotel provided water. Breakfast was good with a lot of variation. And the bar on the top of the hotel is gorgeous with a view of Ararat. We enjoyed our nightcaps there every evening.
There are a few downsides to the hotel. First, I wish they would replace the carpets. The wall to wall carpeting is old and discolored. This makes things feel a bit less high standard than it should. But the biggest concern is that there is street noise, even though the hotel is not on a main road. The road perpendicular to the hotel is a main road with high volume traffic. With the windows closed, it helped – but during peak times, it was definitely heard.
he location is central to the main square, shopping, restaurants and a very short walk to most of the sights in Yerevan.
Rooms and bathrooms were lovely, large and very updated. The entire hotel appears to have had a renovation fairly recently, and (being in construction) it was done quite well. The rooftop bar/restaurant has good food, great service, and amazing views of the city and Mount Ararat. Jazz band played Friday and Sat evening, not sure about other nights….
The entire staff were so helpful in all aspects of our stay. Recommended great restaurants, sights and markets to check out, set up car tours for us of places we couldn’t take a cab to due to distance, and arranged our transfer to Tbilisi at the end of our stay.
Location is great. It was about 1.5 blocks from the Republic Square (main square).
We had 3 different rooms. They were all very comfortable and spacious. A/C was working perfectly, especially since it was 100 degrees outside. The bathroom is newly renovated and clean.
Breakfast was included. Breakfast is on the 12th floor (rooftop) overlooking Mount Ararat. They have live singers or DJ at nights. Great place to invite friends or meet people.
Our room was on the 11th floor, just below the dining terrace. Though we did not have a view of Mount Ararat, it was wonderful to wake with the sun each morning, and to only have to walk up one short flight of stairs to enjoy a break on the spacious and welcoming terrace. The room was comfortable; linens were fresh and ample, and the rain shower is always appreciated. WiFi worked flawlessly.
Breakfast was elegantly displayed and featured a good balance of choices. That we could dine on the roof terrace overlooking the city was a nice indulgence.
The hotel is ideally located for exploring Yerevan; within a block are two outstanding restaurants, too. Should our travels take us again to this city we would certainly consider staying here again.
