Kantar is a mixture of old and new. Walking along with time, we have created a unique structure, which includes three type of services: hostel, hotel and apartment accommodation in Yerevan.
We provide to our customers the best service with affordable prices, to make their trip unforgettable and carefree.
We have designed the hotel in the very center of Yerevan, with just 1 minute’s walking distance from the Republic Square and 200 meters away from the nearest Metro station. Here you will experience not only the old Yerevan, but you could also become a part of the new modern city.
This list can be endless, but instead of reading it, you can simply visit us and enjoy the convenience and hospitality of our hotel yourself.
The hostel and hotel are located in the historical part of Yerevan. This area of the city was very popular by its market, which was called “ghantar”. The word “ghantar” itself means big scales of the market. Here were the biggest and the smallest scales of Yerevan: “ghantar” and “mirza” accordingly, which were the property of the City Hall. The wholesale trade of the city was carried on by these scales and the only one who had the right to weigh was the owner of the scales.
Today, unfortunately, only the memory of this market remained. As you may have already guessed the name of our hotel “Kantar” is directly connected with the name this area of the city used to have.
