“Wouldn't come back”
Reviewed December 13, 2011

I stayed here in October as the Ascott where I normally stay when in Baku was full.
On the positive side, the room is clean and fairly large, WiFi is free and works fast and breakfast is allright. Also the location is good.

However, I had a real bad experience. For some reason the room has an outdated airco-system which means a large iron box is hanging out of the window, which as it started raining meant like having to sleep with a steel drumband playing next to you. Even earplugs didnt help. I asked for another room but the lady at the reception said there wasnt any available, The manager explained me the next morning the suites have another type of airco-system which shouldnt have such a problem.

The staff is really nice and friendly but a bit chaotic; my invoice was incorrect and the taxi was ordered at the wrong time. Also despite the visa-signs the hotel doesn't accept credit-cards, only cash. At 130 AZN a night for a standard room it's not cheap but also not expensive.

Not a plush hotel, but a good base for a business trip. Free breakfast and free wifi in the room. Clean, but nothing special. If you want a good base, fairly central, with friendly staff, at affordable prices, then this is a good call.

If you want plush with lots of fuss and loads of stuff you don't really need, then this is not for you.

I return here every visit to Baku having tried a few other hotels in the past, and I will be returning again because it works. And they will meet you from the airport and arrange transfer back at about €30 each way. Very nice after a long flight.

Room Tip: I have my favourite room, but if I add it here it may be booked the next time I visit, so, sorry, it...

On an unlit sidestreet just off Bulbul Boulevard, and just around the corner from a very lively evening square. A bit short on restaurants in the immediate area, but the restaurant on the 9th floor is very good. Staff very helpful, breakfast buffet excellent. Very safe walking the streets around the hotel, but do be aware of the usual Baku potholes.

Tucked away on a side-street and very close to the American embassy library, this is a quality yet unpretentious hotel. Room rates are very reasonable (on the order of 90 euros), and the breakfast buffet has everything you could want. The rooms come with a full bath and the hotel is quiet and comfortable. Great staff who speak English. Recommended.
