The location is very inconvenient, unless you come specifically to stay in this part of Absheron peninsula. Getting to Baku city centre would cost you at least 25 Euros one way. You should also be very careful about taxi drivers because they try to charge you as much as they can, especially if they see you are a foreigner. Our strong adviсe is to use prearraged taxis from the hotel or travel agency.
The worst and really worst part of the hotel is its reception. Employees cannot speak English at all. Hotel management really needs to train its staff for simple issues and those who work at the front desk need to learn to be respectful and prolific when it comes to solve guest issues caused by hotel's personnel incompetence.
The breakfast service and quality is just terrible. If you come downstairs later than 8.30 you can't find clean cup for tea! They also think that the real coffee is 3-in-1 Nescaffe sachet bag. Restaurant is awful and is just a money generating machine.
In short, this is a hotel exclusively for locals that come with families to swim in aquapark and stay overnight in order to avoid return to Baku. Obviously not even close to 4 stars, 3 stars at best if you are generous.
