“Retro but gobsmacking location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012 via mobile

Just back fro Eurovision which probably means I wasn't seeing 'normal' Baku. The sea view suites have stunning views of the city and you are very well located if you are tourist for the old city shops and bars.
I like the fact that it sits on the top of an office block and feels like an oil business hotel which puts it in context for the location
The rooms are huge and comfortable. Reception staff are very friendly, the breakfast room deserted but you are on top of the world.

Didnt stay just went to the restaurant on the 17th floor. Great views but food adequate. It was Eurovision night though so prehaps they were exceptionally busy.

I was in Baku on business and the sales rep booked this hotel. Baku is an expensive city - that will suprise most people. The traffic is horrible so it is better to stay close to the venue you want to see.

The reception of this hotel is on the 17th floor of an office building that is located in an older area of town with a pedestrian area next to it. The reception area looks like a business office not a hotel. The staff where friendly enough. My room was on the 15th floor and was a suite with a livingroom, kitchenette and bedroom. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was huge and clean as well.

The breakfast was on another floor in the restaurant. It was ok - buffet with the basic stuff. No great bread just regular loaf bread.

If I go back for business, I would probably stay here again just because it is close to the office of our customer. I had to move hotels for the last two nights because of the Euro Vision competition as the hotel was full. See my review on the Giz Galazi hotel.

BEWARE No alone women!
On February 29th 2012, I was molested by the security guard, he listened from the corridor to my conversation with my colleague and then engaged me, grabbed me hurting my arm and tried to pull me into a room, kept asking where was my room, if I was married and that he wanted a foreign girlfriend. When I managed to free myself from his grip he said he'd wait for me right there.
I was lucky...

have stayed her twice. The rooms are very big. Actually it not a room but a suite. Located in the heart of Baku. You can't get closer to the city centre. Nice view since all rooms are at high floors. The rooms are expensive.

Nice breakfaston the top floor, with a (close to) 360 degree view of the city. Rooms are clean but not very modern, but you will not complain.

Arrived from the Lufthansa Flight at 21 20 in mid November and was driven into the City - arrived at the hotel which is really an office block with flour floors of the Radisson on the top of it ! - The rooms are large , mine had a Kitchen and Lounge and I had plenty of room - the bathrooms are small but well equip and overall I was impressed. - The staff were friendly and while the bar and indeed b/fast room were empty the food was good and I would return.

Room Tip: You can only have one of two floors - so go for either !

I have just stayed 4 nights in this hotel. I found it very comfortable. The room was spacious and quiet with a great view of the city. Maybe some of the furniture is a bit worn, but it was clean. The bar and restaurant on the top floor served good meals and the view of the city from the rooftop bar is excellent. Staff were very helpful and efficient, although the bar staff were a little dour....

I found a good rate for the hotel online and if I can find it again, I will certainly be going back to this hotel.
