I'd never been to Baku before and when my company sent me there I was put up in the Hilton. It's a new hotel, both in design and decor, and as someone who is frequently put up in places that look and feel just like the last place you were in - to the point where you can actually forget which country you're in - this was a refreshing change. I loved the mod cons: 5 fast elevators where you type in which floor you want to go to on a panel then the computer tells you which lift is speeding towards you; the rotating bar on the 25th floor, giving you a panoramic view of downtown and the water front. And what friendly staff! Baku is undergoing a transformation; opposite the hotel is a shopping centre with all the stores you'd find in Regent Street and to further confuse the poor Brit, there is a Debenham's and a London cab rank right outside. The hotel is not fully joined up on WiFi were you had to pay 15quid to a 3rd party supplier but it's a very minor point. For location, room quality, service, pure modernity (i.e. in an Apple way, where everything is friendly) plus the friendliness of the staff and the food (make sure you book the restaurant well in advance) this place surely cannot disappoint.
