“Like a nightmare”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

I am wondering that how they pertained 5 star to this hotel. Difinitly it was the worst hotel I have ever seen. The selling manager of hotel is a teif and for only 4 hours , charged me a whole night. The staff are unfriendly and the ferniture are too old. If you want a good destiny for your enemies, recomend them this hotel.

Stayed July 2014

The most unfavourable feature of the hotel is that it is quite far away from the city center. You can only go to center of Baku by a vehicle. The rooms are clean and large enough. However, you should stay at the rooms having sea wiev regardless of price diffences. The rooms at the back side in which I stayed fairly discomfortable. The breakfast of hotel is not so bad. We have no complaint about the service and aprroach the staff. By the way the most positive side of hotel is its excellent pool.

Room Tip: Give priority to the rooms having sea wiev in spite of difference in price.

I do stay there almost every time while in Baku as the price is very reasonable and location convenient for those driving into Baku. Sea views are great. Staff was always nice and friendly, I was a bit surprised to read reviews when people told that staff was not helpful. Perhaps it was language barrier. As for me - I am returning customer. In room everything functioned and room was clean. Did not watch TV so I can not comment on that. Usually stay there for 1 or 2 nights. Breakfast was OK, no thrills but you get the basics in reasonable quality. Bed and pillows were comfortable enough. This gets from me 4 points rating mostly because of user friendly price. I rate this as business traveller, maybe, maybe when travelling with family or holiday I would make different choice.

Room Tip: Sea view is only correct choice to make.

Stayed for a week with my wife, seaview room. Nice location! The breakfast was good and the restaurant is located on top floor with the view to boulvard street and Caspian sea. Quiet place. Reception guy was very helpful everytime we ask for something)) Thanks again!

I have no choice in staying here but I will be asking my company to seek other hotels in the area, the first time I put money in the safe in my room I had $500 USD taken, I reported it to the staff well you might as well spoke to tiles on the floor as far as they where concerned, I'm still awaiting the security managers so called scrutiny of the video tapes, but its fair to say goodbye to my money, at least it taught me a good lesson, keep you're money on you're person. On the rooms don't go above the second level if possible otherwise you're lucky if you get hot water to the room 3 days in row cold shower, breakfast, its like the showers "COLD" the beds and pillows recycled I'm sure, TV was found in a time capsule and the quality of the programs you receive here, don't bother turning it on anyway,staff as I remarked earlier, talk to the tiles on the floor there here to make a cheque and make you're stay frustrating, my advise stay on the beach or stay on the plane but please STAY AWAY from this hotel .

Room Tip: Don't go above the second floor if possible.

I stayed only one night there in the end of July 2013. Location is convenient. I organized pick-up from airport with hotel, cost was similar to taxi. but it was easy to reach. Check-in was quick and without any problem. Rooms are looking old and not very clean. Hotel is generally looks like a 3 star hotel. It is really not like a 5 star hotel. Breakfast was also like a 3 star hotel. It was a buffet but not many varieties. It is acceptable to stay for short time.
