Situated 160 km north from Yerevan, the Avan Dzoraget hotel is located midway between the capitals of Armenia and Georgia.

The most relaxing place in Armenia!!!) The sound of river, huge mountains, mystic atmosphere, the architectural solution of the building, armenian culture, friendly stuff, tasty food. I've just enjoyed each minute of my stay there!!
The favourite place of my family.No matter it is summer or winter you can visit this place and enjoy your time the fullest. Avan Dzoraget is not only hotel: it is home situated next to the charming rocks.
The hotel is located up a steep valley near a dam, pretty well miles from anywhere and we only spent one night here but the hotel had character and we liked it. Our room was in the eaves but snug and the beds were comfortable and we enjoyed traditional local food at the evening meal.
Super location and facilities. Good clean indoor swimming pool. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was a good size with a very comfortable bed.
We are very grateful for excellent service and tasty food, served at Tufenkian Dzoraget Restaurant. This is not the first time we stay here and we will definitely be back.
