“Other good reviews are lying.”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

I'd give this place 2.5 stars at best. On arrival the receptionist was unfriendly and unhelpful. Our suite was very basic more in keeping with a cheap motel. We never got our requested wake up call. The breakfast buffet was a joke and the service was totally non-existant. The male waiter never once even came over to our table even though there was only one other guest there. We were never offered juice or coffee but when we did ask for coffee it was a big deal to get a cup of what was weak dishwater and we were never offered a refill - not that we wanted one. In fact the waiter was downright rude. If this is the best place in town I'd hate to see second best and to say it's a five star is an outright lie!

Thank you very much for sharing your review with us. Your comments (both positive and negative) are very important for us. We are very disappointed about your experience at our hotel. Your comments about the services in front office and the restaurant addressed to relevant managements and appropriate actions have been taken.

With my kindest regards,

I stayied in the past in this hotel and again now. It is a big difference. Very good english spoken now, the rooms well maintained and the buffet breakfast quite near to international standards.
There many hotels around now but the Sheki Sherau is in city center and more than efficient. recommended

This hotel is an unexpected surprise. It is the only 5 star hotel in Sheki and the standards here are nothing short of excellent.

The staff all speak English and Russian, the food is all regional and Fresh. the restaurant and bar menus feature both local and European delicacies and the Bar in the lobby is quite chic considering where you are.Room service is 24 hours and the WiFi is very affordable and quite reliable. Book early because it is very popular with tourists. The hotel is also located right in the middle of town. The restaurants, park, bazar and Sheki Xan-palace and it's museums are all within walking distance. There is also an excellent variety of television channels and useful leaflets about the local sights and architecture.

The only two problems we had was a mistake was made in our reservation but this was suitably compensated for by a complimentary meal. The other problem is a strange one. The room air conditioner controller just doesn't work. I find this strange since other guests have complained but nothing has been done.

Overall this is a great hotel. The journey from Baku to Sheki is long but this hotel is a welcoming destination. I will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: As usual the higher the better!

Probably the best hotel in Sheki, right in the middle and only a little over $100 a night. The varied breakfast, included, was better than others I experienced in my Caucasian solo trip. The restaurant served a good basic dinner, if slightly more expensive than it would be at a small restaurant.

This small new hotel in the center of Sheki is absolutely first rate. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast is excellent. The interior architecture in back in the elevator area is dramatic. You can walk to shops or just lounge in the park that is adjacent to the hotel. We could not get the air conditioning to cool our room as much as we wanted, and it appeared that it was ignoring the in-room thermostat. We did not discover the control outside our front door until the day we left. This was a very minor annoyance and should not be interpreted to detract from the excellent quality of the hotel. We did not speak to the staff about the air conditioning because it was a very minor problem.

Room Tip: There is a very small balcony on the front facing rooms on the upper floors. It allows you to look...

A nice modern hotel in the central square of town. Within walking distance of the bus station and the Khan's palace and places to eat.
Rooms were clean and spacious with fridge and TV and the staff very helpful.
Would recommend.
