  • Really cool history. Tour guide was well educated. I had a translator because I only speak English, but the guide answered questions well and really knew her stuff
  • My opinion bit different from most people reviews here.. yes it’s only few hotels in this region so this look better options, but it’s bit to much 5 Star for this sekhi Palace hotel ...need some renovation specially in bathroom/shower the water licking. Towels very old .... but it’s okay anyway.
  • Great hotel in the center of Sheki. Helpful staff, nice food, comfortable beds. Location is wonderful, you have easy access to Khan' s palace, Karavansaray and souvenir shops.
  • Very nice modern building clean room helpful staff. Big pool complex with limited opening hours. Good breakfast in separate building. The weekend evening was noisy as some group of people entertained themself in the garden.
  • Good location, good staff with some English, very good food with cheap price, i liked the swimming pool with sauna most, over all excellente hotel with very reasnoble price, i will highly recommend it to my friends.
