A comfortable mid range hotel in a convenient down town location close to the harbour. The property is a converted apartment block with rooms on two floors and a small restaurant on the ground floor. Staff were obliging and the buffet breakfast was great. Rooms are comfortable, if a little on the small side, and ensuite bathrooms are clean and... More

I have never seen such a dirty carpet, 2 hangers for cloth. The hotell looked like a hotel in 1965 It is centrally... More

The hotel is old and really need a great deal of renovation. The whole building smells musty and the front and cellar doors do not close tíghtly so there is a constant draft. The carpets are worn out and no amount of cleaning helps. The cleaning ladies are doing their best though as well as the receptionists and other members... More

Good hotel in a good location, near the Bulvar. The rooms was big enough and clean, with a nice shower room. Inside there is a full mini bar, satellite TV and air conditioning. The buffet breakfast is fine and the staff is very helpful and friendly. I suggest this hotel to any tourist or businessman for its quality/price ratio

Good location in Baku, only 10 minutes walk to Caspian Seafront, new Hilton (not open yet 05/11) & new Bulevard Shopping centre so can't be a bad area.A pleasant and leisurely 30 minute stroll to the Old Town (can stop for a coffee/cold beer along the promenade and take in the view). Meals are adequate, rooms are bigger than other... More

I stayed in several top-rated Baku hotels before, but this is second time I decided to stay in the Empire Hotel. With Baku prices it is pretty inexpensive hotel. Hotel staff is very helpful and friendly. You can easily change your room to better floor, or from inner yard view to a street view. It is very close to Baku... More

I liked this hotel very much, as it is very close to the sea and inner city and offers good quality for low costs. The breakfast was excellent and the clean, spacious room had high ceiling and a big bed.

The hotel offred us an airport transfer for 20 manats, which apparently was much cheaper than what Baku taxi drivers charge foreigners. Very friendly and helpful staff, although I'm not sure of their level of English, because I could speak Russian with them. The room was clean and tidy as well as the bathroom, however it smelled cigarettes inside the... More
