“A great small hotel”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

The Irshad is an ideal hotel for people who already know Baku a bit, and are looking for excellent value off the more beaten track of the sea boulevard or Fountain Square. Built in 1996 as the country’s first private hotel after socialism, it offers five floors of rooms on a quiet corner of a long green park in between Metro Genclik and the US Embassy. The clean air of the neighborhood is a huge advantage over the busier parts of the seaside center, as is the excellent service from a mostly young, Azeri/Russian/English-speaking staff. The complimentary breakfast is quite substantial. Rooms are a bit dated by some standards: a funny mix of Danish modern, Russian dacha, and late Soviet comfort, but kept terrifically clean. I had to check that I had not been given an upgrade as my room was quite a bit larger than expected, a nice surprise. Mattresses were a bit springy and might bear updating. The price, obviously, is also hard to beat. I would gladly go back.

We stayed with several families with young children. The staff at the hotel speak English fairly well. Food and service at the restaurant are very good with both traditional Azerbaijani dishes as well as American fare. Rooms are large, clean and comfortable. Nice location directly across from a park and on a main thoroughfare with plenty of taxis. The hotel also has a car and driver with extremely reasonable rates.

We stayed at the Irshad in the winter. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very friendly. We had several toddlers in our group. The staff of the hotel made sure the rooms were warm. In fact we had to open the windows to allow for some cooler air. The staff always were very accomodating to our requests and even cooked some kasha that we had purchased at a local store since they did not have oatmeal or hot cereal on the menu for the children. The staff always made sure our phone calls were transferred to us even when we were in the restaurant. the hotel was was in walking distance to neighborhood grocery store and baby store. Local pharmacy was about a block away. The hotel also had a VCR
and some movies that could be rented for an additional fee.
