Hotel Hale Kai

Reviewed April 14, 2013

I have been staying at this hotel for about a month, and would highly recommend it. The location is great, literally 2 blocks from the Fountain Square and about a 10 minute walk through the square to the Bulvar and old city. The staff here speak excellent English, and are exceedingly friendly and helpful (they've been helping me with Azeri words). Breakfast has made to order eggs and is delicious. Free wifi works throughout the place and is fast enough for Skype calls. Thanks!

Hale Kale

The location of the hotel is very close to the Fountain area (3 mins walk) i.e shopping, restaurants and bars and most of the tourists attraction site. It is about 10mins walk to the old town and 15mins walk to the Caspian sea (Park Bulvar).

In terms of location, this hotel excellent for tourists.

The hotel itself is small, simple and basic. It is not the usual big hotel chains and there is no restaurants in the hotel (but there are plenty of choices just 5 mins walk away). I was upgraded to a bigger room the next day.

In general the hotel room rate in Baku is expensive and Hale Kale is no exception. In other part of the world, you will be much better hotel for the amount that you are paying for Hale Kale.

Breakfast is included in the room rate. It is simple and on most morning, I was in the only guest for breakfast.

Staff are friendly and helpful in both the reception and in the breakfast room.

Wifi is complementary.

I stayed in Baku more than a month at Hotel Hale Kai. The people that work there are excellent to be around, don't have to worry about all the noise that seems to be in the other hotels. The cleaning service is spot on. The laundry service is also a plus. When i return to land from being offshore, i will again stay there. Nice place to rest your head off of the beaten path!

Room Tip: 3rd floor has the fastest internet!

Hotel Hale Kai is a place to be. Simply the best and excellent in service, location within the heart of Baku, the free breakfast is always happy to served, the room is loaded with all I need with free wifi, big sofa and with a small office like table, also with electric pot to make tea or coffee though i don't drink any or even wine from the fridge.

Service staffs are prompt and knows exactly what i request like flat iron for clothes. Reception staff are friendly, helpful and knows english very well. I myself receiving a tips on how I go around and where to buy something. I even learned a little Russian words from them. It was truly nice place and all the people working. I stayed 14 days in this hotel.

Hale Kai is absolutely to recommend. The rooms are clean and pretty. The position of the hotel is perfect. It is calm but nevertheless it is not far from Place Bakus, the Fpuntain Square. The breakfast is served in a small room with personal atmosphere. There are computer and internet available. The owner are Sandy and Larissa, a friendly couple. And also the receptionists are helpful.

This place has great reviews on trip advisor because it is just that - only managed two nights here in August. Great hotel, as others have said, tucked away just a couple of minutes walk from the square and the shops. Very clean and comfortable- great quirky rooms that are quiet and have everything you need. Breakfast is fab and the chef cooks to order with a good choice. you could easily pay more to go one of the bigger chain hotels - Why ? they will look after you here for a good price ! I Highly recommended :-) oh and free wifi
