  • a great Hostel in the heart of the old town! We stayed in the room for two! oochen' was great! wonderful owner, helped solve all arising questions on terrain orientation! The hostel were breakfasts, this pleased! I just didn't like the gas column in the soul. Well not flowing from her normal temperature water! The boiling water, then ice. I recommend to replace an electric water heater! I am in pain every day! terribly uncomfortable! but everything else is on a different level! Clean, comfortable, Interior passes the local culture! Well done! 1.

Where to stay in Baku

Baku's emphasis on architectural diversity--and its fondness for constructions that put all previous buildings to shame--has yielded a range of accommodations. Look no further than the waterfront high-rises for contemporary luxury, or take a peek at the more storied surrounding boulevards for 19th-century class, with grand hotels and stylish boutiques set in Baroque and neoclassical buildings. A smattering of budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses lies throughout the city, particularly on side streets close to the main attractions and train stations.
