Fawlty Towers Hotel
Ranked #25 of 117 Baku B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 March 2014

We had a pleasant stay at the Fawlty Towers Hotel - the location was great (near the Old City) and the room oozed charm, although the bed was a little uncomfortable. The staff spoke some English and were very friendly. The free wifi was good and we were able to find a few English news channels on tv. The only real negative was that we could clearly hear the people who were in the room above us as they walked around the room and talked.

Excellent location being only a few minutes walk from the main shops and restuarants. Roads outside a bit dark with lack of street lights and pavements in poor repair. Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff who speak perfect English. I shall certainly be staying there on my next trip. So many pubs only a few minutes walk away.

I stayed there with a friend a few nights in May 2013. The location is great, the rooms are clean, the price is fair and above all, the people managing the hotel are amazingly kind and helpful.
If you are on budget and look for a good hotel I highly recommend this place.

Baku is a very pretty city but the police are still a bit soviet
They caught me taking taking a picture of the presidents motorcade and made me delete it in a very ignorant manner
Good place to visit though
Getting a visa is a pain and getting out at the airport is like trying to leave the ussr

We stayed for two nights at Fawlty Towers when visiting baku.
It's just two minutes to walk from the hotel and you are in the main pedestrian area, also quite close to the fountains square. To the old town it's about 15 to 20 minutes to walk.
The hotel is located in a small side street, but it feels perfectly save, even at night.
Staff is friendly and you will get plenty to eat for breakfast - if you like cheese and eggs :)
For Baku we found that the price is very low and it's good value for money.

After staying at the Landmark Hotel I was reluctant to stay anywhere else, however due to a limited budget we came across the Fawlty Towers hotel.

The location is little known but once your there it's east to get your bearings. It's about a 5-10 minute walk from the main shopping area and about a 15-20 minute walk to the old walled part of the city.

The staff are very friendly, especially the female receptionist who speaks very good English.

Breakfast is cooked daily for the individual, so no buffet style set up. We weren't offered choices but if you ask they will be happy to accommodate. We were served sausage, bread, cucumber, tomato, cheese selection, plain omelette and tea/coffee. More than enough and included in the rate.

Rooms are clean and have A/C for cooling and heating. Limited selection of tv channels but wifi is fast, free and unlimited. Used it to watch youtube vids and had no issues.
Shower pressure is a quote low but plenty of hot water.

Theres a book and dvd collection as well that you can use for free.

I wasn't expecting a lot but for a three star hotel you can't go wrong. Left feeling very happy.

Taxi to airport shouldn't cost more than 15manat. Getting around the city won't cost more than 5manat. Try to use purple London taxi's which are clean and metered.
