As of September, this hotel was less than one year in operation; but the staff were efficient and helpful (nothing post-soviet about them.) The restaurant is pleasant and the food was very nice. The rooms were exceptionally clean. I don't about about the front-facing rooms, but the rear rooms all have a small balcony which is very pleasant for leaning out and looking over the old city, or up the hill at the flame buildinngs, which, every night, provide a technology-enabled display to put Hong Kong to shame! The location is across from the promenade on the waterfront, which is perfect for a morning jog or an afternoon coffee at a cafe. When the carpet museum opens, it'll be a 5 minute walk. Maiden Tower is also a 5 minute walk. Fresh fruit in the room every day, and a very comfortable room, very clean, very fresh. No reservations about strongly recommending Four Seasons Baku.
Also: Baku was much nicer than I had expected. I've been told that 5 years ago, it was still in post-Soviet, run-down mode: not anymore. The old buildings have all been re-faced with limestone and softly underlit, giving everything near the water a Paris-esque overhaul that is genuinely charming. The parks are kept meticulously. Every morning, there are elderly women sweeping up, not just trash, but literally small bits of dirt, on every street corner (at least within proximity of the waterfront and old sections. The vibe is like a cross between Istanbul and Dubai. Very tourist friendly. Great, not good, great food. A serious hidden gem.
