I stayed in the Red Lion for about 11 hours having checked in at 2pm and getting picked up for a boat to the rig at 3am. I'm quite glad as I don't think I could last a few nights here! The staff are very friendly and helpful which is it's saving grace.
The bathroom reeked of mould and there was plasterboard debris all over the cistern, there was however 2 designer name towels in the bathroom, a Lacoste one and a Nike one...they were both golden coloured, and identical, bar the names on them, classy though...ahem.
There was no working kettle and the sitting room was also quite fusty, kinda like an old woman's house. Also, the noise from the pub below was pretty full on, riggers getting gassed up after a long trip I imagine, can't blame them!
Saying that, The Red Lion is very central and the room I had was very spacious...maybe a good clean out is all it needs.

The Red Lion is located very close to the pedestrian shopping streets and the old city of Baku. The room we stayed in was good sized, with a sitting room and a bedroom as well as a balcony. The staff was friendly and helpful. Only two complaints: the heater wasn't working very well, and the nights got a little cold; and the breakfast was not very inspiring. It is served in the adjoining pub, so the atmosphere is cold bar in the daytime; dark and not so comfortable. The food is laid out on the bar itself. No one mentioned omelettes to us. No elevator. The free wifi was great.

My friend and I stayed one night at the Red Lion, which was booked for us by a friend in Baku. The air-conditioned rooms are large, with a nice sitting area and flat screen TV.

The staff at the hotel are very nice. We asked directions to fountain square, and the bell boy personally led us there.

Downsides to the hotel are the breakfast--cereal and coffee. They will make you a very plain omelette if you request. There's a tea kettle in the room, but the cups and sugar bowls were a bit grim.

Overall, the convenient location of the hotel and quality of the rooms would lead me to stay here again on a future trip to Baku.
