Highly recommended
From the moment we arrived until the timevwe left, the staff were so friendly and couldnt do enough to help. Thats from eception staff to bar staff to cleanrs. Wonderful service. The twin room was very large with a table and chairs. Extra large tv. Tea and coffee avaliable. Fridge empty but proabaly because of covid restrictions. Bathroom very clean with separate WC enclosure, large shower cubicle and best stocked bathroom for the traveller who had forgotten anything. Clean fresh towels , bathrobes, slippers, toothbrushes, combs, shaving kits, shower caps, shampoo shower gel. Top notch throughout stay. Magnificent hotel for thevprice. Highly recommended. Good location for the Old Town and nearby shopping area. Ovrall probably on poer with the best hotels I have ever stayed in

Fantastic Location, Tasteful, Historic Decoration
This is a great property and I highly recommend it. It is on par with a very, very nice boutique hotel experience in either the US or Western Europe. The rooms were (I think probably on par or nicer than the 21C Museum Hotels in the US, as an example). extremely clean and tastefully decorated (really high quality furnishing and stylish at that), the help was great when I needed service, the lounge area where food is served was quite stylish and yet historical. Do note that breakfast is not a buffet: it is made to order, and sometimes is not immediate and only starts at 7:30 a.m., so not great if you have early morning obligations (drawback). I also noticed that with both of the rooms I stayed in, the rainfall shower head always had one tiny spot that gave cold water. The location is fantastic, just blocks from Fountain Square. I didn't use either the bar or food service besides breakfast or the spa or gym. I have also stayed at one of the other elite chain hotels in Baku (with one of the flagship buildings we all know) and I would say that this experience compared was comparable. It is a great value! Only other drawback: some noisier guests might be possible, but little street noise (and it is in a popular area, so well insulated from outside).
