I stayed in this hotel in October 2012 for 2 nights.
This hotel is located in the ISR Plaza (14th-17th floor), very close to the center of Baku. Upon arriving, after a long flight, we get into the lobby of the ISR building. It was already late in the evening, so there were very few people in the lobby and they did not speak English so they could not direct us to the reception. There is no sign in the lobby, directing us to the reception, so we went into the elevator. To our surprise, there was also no sign in the elevator! We tried the 15th floor; no luck. Then we went down again, tried -1; again no luck. We went back to 1, and another guest came into the elevator and informed us that the reception is on the 17th floor.
When checking in, I told the lady that we had difficulty finding the reception. She insisted that there is a sign. SInce it was late in the evening, I didn't want to argue, and assumed that she was correct. Regardless, the next day, I checked and there is indeed a sign. Please see the pictures; it's a few centimers high.....
The room is spacious (a suite), which is convenient but not necessary. Internet is free, which I like.
I was not very impressed with the breakfast. For EUR 16 I have seen much better. It's a small buffet, and you have to order extra's. However, the staff in the restaurant is not very fluent in English. It took me quite some effort to get cream, sugar and a spoon for my coffee so go figure if you want something complicated for breakfast...
Check-out took quite some time (I was the only one checking out at that time), apparantly because not all computer systems are tied to the credtit card payment system.
It is easy to find good restaurants at walking distance.
