Alexandrapol Hotel, Gyumri

Armenia is a historical name in our minds, when it comes to history, the name of Armenia shines somewhere in it, so as I was preparing to travel to Armenia, I found out a city called Gyumri.

Gyumri is an urban municipal community and the second-largest city in Armenia, serving as the administrative center of Shirak Province in the northwestern part of the country. By the end of the 19th century, when the city was known as Alexandropol, it was one of the largest cities of Russian-ruled Eastern Armenia with a population similar to that of Yerevan. It was renamed to Leninakan during the Soviet period. The city's population grew above 200,000 prior to the 1988 Spitak earthquake, when it was devastated. As of the 2011 census, the city had a population of 121,976, down from 150,917 reported at the 2001 census.

Gyumri is a small historical city with buildings left from the heart of history, quiet people, well-known artists and young people who do not leave the city alone at nights. To stay in Gyumri, I decided to stay in the best hotel in the city, to increase my experience of this beautiful city many times over.

Alexandrapol Hotel, a hotel that brings a beautiful experience, the interior architecture of the hotel, its silence and geographical location, the love that goes on, the staff and the owner of the hotel, Mr. Armen, all joined hands to make my stay comfortable

This three-storey hotel has several luxury rooms, all of which have their own beauty in plaster, patina and luxury painting. The restaurant is also located on the ground floor. The lobby is more like a museum than a hotel, framed paintings by the city's historic timeline on all floors. The hotel bar, gaming equipment, lighting and all the elements you need to relax in Gyumri. The skylights of the rooms prevented me from waking up in the morning. This is one of those hotels that you like to photograph in its lobbies.
