Where to Stay in Baku

From a relatively unknown destination, the Azerbaijani capital of Baku has grown to become a popular choice for international travelers keen to enjoy something a little different. With unusual modern building designs and ambitious architectural projects rubbing shoulders with more traditional structures, the city is often spoken about in the same terms as the likes of Dubai and Shanghai.

As you would expect from such a fast growing destination, there is a plentiful choice of luxurious and affordable accommodation in close proximity to Baku’s most interesting attractions.

To get around the city, visitors can use the metro system – the only one in the country – which is recognised as safe with trains running at regular intervals.

The Old City

Most visitors to Baku opt to stay in or near the Old City – the Icherisheher – which is the historic heart of the city, featuring a maze of ancient buildings including mosques, the ancient domed hammams and the Shirvanshahs’ Palace with its spread of historic pavilions and courtyards that date back to the 12th century.

Old City Hotels

1. Four Seasons Hotel Baku

A five-star hotel located just a ten-minute stroll from the waterfront and even closer to the Palace of the Shirvanshahs. As expected from the brand, luxurious touches are everywhere with an indoor pool (complete with glass roof), an elegant Italian restaurant and Turkish hammams when you need a break from sightseeing.

2. Intourist Hotel Baku Autograph Collection

In an ideal setting overlooking the Caspian Sea, the hotel offers contemporary high-tech rooms and suites with Nespresso coffee machines. Fitness fanatics can make use of the sea-view gym before enjoying the spa facilities.

3. Icheri Sheher Hotel

As an alternative to the higher priced, international brands, this reasonably-priced four-star hotel is ideally located in the historic UNESCO Inner Town district, directly beside the Shirvanshahs’ Palace. Guests will enjoy comfortable rooms close to most of Baku’s points of interest with shuttle bus services available to the international airport.

There are too much beautiful restaurants. I have to say that bilgah is more beautiful.

Baku is nice place for budget travelers. Tasty foods, combination of eastern and western architecture, cheap pubs! You can visit history, national literature and art museums which are very close to each other. I would say nightlife is not best.

Baku is not city which I would recommend. It is big and modern and clean, but it is visible that most of their sights were build couple years ago and therefore this city looks fake to me.
