The hotel is located in the area which is under reconstruction now, it brings a bit of dust to the narrow streets of the neighbourhood... However, it's really close to Old City and Torgoviy district (centre), like 10 minutes walking. It's small, clean and quiet, family style business. For breakfast you'll have an omelette, coffee/tea, yoghurt and some sausage assortment.... More

Well, this was a mixed experience. Location is excellent, walking distance to all the city center sites and lovely parks. However you do need to watch your step outside. Footpath is in a bad state of repair and that street is poorly lit. Also no locals I met knew where the hotel was or where the street was , even... More

The hotel is very nice. Located in te city centre, close both to modern buildings and to the old city. Breakfast was decent. The staff is ok but could be more friendly. For those who speak only Russian could be hard to communicate

Confortable, clean and with friendly staff. Quiet rooms. Wifi works properly. Located in a strategic point (5 min walk to the Old City and to the nearest metro station). Basic breakfast but with an outstanding omelette! Family environment. Cheap. Definetely recommended!

I booked this hotel together with my e-visa via Azterra Travel. The room was small, had no view to speak of, but was in all other ways, pretty wonderful. The bed was comfortable, the wifi was fast, the breakfast was small but filling, and the staff were excellent. The young lady who was on reception most days (sorry, I didn’t... More

I was worried when I read the previous review about the hotel being closed, but it seems there was a change of management about the time the previous reviewer visited the hotel. Anyway, the Swan Hotel, with its new management, is still (June 29th) delivering excellent service in a spotless environment. Front desk staff are fluent in English and given... More

We booked this hotel several months ago. We communicated several times via email with the hotel owner. Never did he indicate that "The Swan" was closed or will close. Today (April 11), we arrived in Baku to find a note taped to the hotel door, telling us that "all reservations are relocated to the "Maestro Hotel" (across the street). The... More

Can't fault the hotel on anything. Clean rooms. Good shower. Great breakfast. Easy walk to the wall of the old city. Friendly people. Decent WiFi Internet. The name of the hotel is not on the building or entrance but just ring the bell.

This is a small hotel on a human scale in central Baku. Helpful, English speaking staff, fast free wireless internet, excellent breakfast. The hotel arranged efficient, competitive priced airport transfers. Large clean comfortable rooms. I can recommend this hotel if you want an efficient place to stay on a human scale.
