The Merchant Baku Hotel is in a magnificent, historic building that once housed the Caspian Shipping Company. Built-in 1858, the iconic architecture of the building reflects one of the most dynamic and vital periods in the history of Azerbaijan. Located in the heart of Baku, the hotel is a snow-white liner sailing on the ocean, where you can relax, feeling like a member of a sea cruise.
The entire interior of this hotel designs in the style of "The Great Gatsby". Also, it combines a stylish modern design and many original details, including impressive murals showing old merchant ships that once sailed on the Caspian Sea. The marble floors cover traditional Azerbaijani carpets and harmoniously combine with vintage furniture. They create an elegant and, at the same time, individual atmosphere. The Merchant intends to become one of the most exclusive and popular hotels in Baku. Uncomplicated yet elegant, sophisticated, and welcoming, The Merchant will be your second home.
The Merchant Hotel has 63 luxurious rooms. All these rooms have a unique design inspired by the fantastic combination of French architectural styles "Art Deco" and "Art Nouveau". 16 rooms have the advantage of a private balcony. 9 rooms have comfortable connecting rooms that are ideal for families with children. There is also one room for guests with special requirements. For a night of peace and relaxation, book one of our specially designed rooms with no daylight. Enjoy a delightful night of restful sleep and wake up feeling refreshed and ready for a new adventure.

This hotel was very nice and I could relax. I also enjoyed using the gym and workout. The staff were friendly and helpful enough. I stayed there for only two nights and that was enjoyable for me. I thank them for their hospitality. [...]
The starting point of the hotel is excellent: it has a winning location - near the old city, large and luxurious rooms, beautiful design and courteous staff. It's the little things that avoid it to be an excellent hotel. We had to ask twice to move extra bed that was placed under the TV, and only the third time, when I announced that I would move it myself, they come. There is no hair conditioner in the shower, the liquid soap is cheap and the breakfast is not rich enough. Still i's a good hotel. Even ery good, but not exellent, which is a pity. Just a little effort to go up to the next level. [...]
It’s my first day, I just book through the hotel itself website because I couldn’t find any booking in other sites. I got an email Conformation with a price and my conformation order when I arrive to to the hotel they told me the email send to me is with wrong price . Despite a long conversion with them, that I should pay the rate they give me it’s higher not the one I receive through email.The the excuse is that I should check the price and memorize while booking the email Is not important conformation, it’s only and email doesn’t represent theatraal price I couldn’t say no my kids was tired from trip .What you think 😔😔😔😔 Cannot comments about other things in the hotel tell my visit finish but already I feel bad [...]
Absolutely stunning hotel with excellent service. It’s a refreshing change from all your run of the mill hotels. The location is perfect. You’re within a one minute walk to the Centre of the city where all the happening restaurants and bars are. The hotel has a great bar which serves up some delicious cocktails. Rooms are pretty big and well maintained. No brainer to stay here. [...]
Had a great time staying at the merchant during my recent visit to Baku. A review I read mentioned that they heard noise from the street which is something we didn’t encounter at all. Great location for everything. Steps away from the main pedestrian street in Baku, the old city, and the Caspian Sea. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. My only negative about the place is the breakfast that is included with the room. On my next visit I would pass on that and instead just order off the breakfast menu. [...]
I was undecided about booking a major brand hotel that I usually stay at or The Merchant Baku during our vacation to Azerbaijan. I finally decided upon The Merchant Baku. Wow, what a great decision. This hotel has everything. The main thing is Location-Location-Location! You step out the door and all the restaurants and shopping are right there. You are also steps away from the Caspian Sea and the Old City. The staff is always there with smiles and willing to help. Hats off to Jafar for setting up our sides trips and to Ali and Ramadan in the dining room. Everyone was great. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and clean. Staying at The Merchant Baku was a great decision. [...]
This hotel is trendy, clean, great interior, high quality, excellent service, superb location.... Rooms are large and beautiful, nice bar, friendly staff.. there is no better location than this, all within walking distance. Only matter I think could be improved is the breakfast. Quality was good but selection quite limited/basic. [...]
Beautiful hotel on a great spot with very friendly staff. It is close to the beach and the old city. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. Bed sleeps great. Breakfast is also good. Lobby bar is not cheap but the cocktails are very nice as well. [...]
The Merchant is one of the best hotels. A superb location, beautiful decor, the most comfortable hotel bed I ever slept in and mind-blowingly good cocktails at the gorgeous bar. This boutique hotel deserves a five star rating and is miles better than many 5 star hotels which I’ve stayed in. The negronis and live entertainment were the highlight! Highly recommended! Excellent value for money and offers a fantastic vibe! [...]
We stayed at this hotel for a week and I can honestly say I have never stayed in such a glamorous, stylish and comfortable hotel before. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we checked in, the waiting and bar staff were just fantastic and chatted and joked with us at all times of day, they soon became like friends. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with very attractive bathrooms, toiletries, toothbrushes, real hairdryer and tea, coffee and water available in the rooms daily on request. Breakfast consists of a good selection of hot and cold food in the buffet area but a la carte breakfasts are also available to order. Ramazan made us laugh each morning whilst taking our drinks order, he knows all the English catchphrases and always provided a happy start to the day. By night the bar/dining area has a relaxing and sophisticated vibe and a great team of bar staff who make an incredible array of cocktails! The hotel is in the most central location in Baku, within a 2 minute walk to the old town and situated in an area of stylish shops, cafe bars and restaurants. I would definitely stay at The Merchant again. [...]
Wonderful location, friendly staff, and overall a beautiful city of Baku! Hotel is nestled in the central part of town. Easy access to everything. Inside its beautifully decorated and looks brand new. Loved it and would love to come back! Thank you [...]
All the reviews above are correct: excellent hotel in the best location, great design, helpful staff. We booked for the 3 nights but decided to stay for whole week: just didn't want to leave ☺. We stayed in room with the balcony - this gives great city vibe . [...]

The Merchant Hotel was a wonderful hotel with Design, outstanding location, and dining options. Baku is a great city with charming architecture, very safe and clean as well. I would strongly recommend Baku and The Merchant hotel. [...]
Beautiful boutique hotel. All the hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Quick responses to our emails and arranged a taxi to pick us to at the airport too for a very reasonable price which was a huge relief arriving late at night. Location was perfect. Right around the corner from the entrance of old town and down the street from lots of great restaurants. Best of both worlds. We wanted to give a big thanks to Ramaran who made our mornings just delightful with his cheery attitude and great service at breakfast. Breakfast was simple but delicious. We loved our room (RM312) with a balcony. Bed was comfy, bathroom was so nice. All the high end finishes through without the price tag. Probably one of our favourite hotels we’ve stayed at. [...]
The hotel has a great location opposite the old city and shopping and dining facilities. The decor of the hotel and rooms in particular are beautiful and the hotel atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. The staff are very friendly and professional and go the extra mile to assist in any way they can. We stayed three nights and a special mention to Ramazan and Ali for their great service with a smile.at breakfast. If I ever return to Baku the Merchant will be my choice of hotel. [...]
I had a business lunch here in their gorgeous courtyard restaurant and was lucky enough to be given a tour of the hotel and rooms. The historical building has been transformed into a stunning and elegant boutique hotel, the bedrooms and bathrooms are gorgeous, and beautifully and stylishly decorated. The food and service at lunch was so good that I went back for dinner the following evening. There was a great singer as background entertainment, every table was occupied, and the food and service again were exceptional, with a lovely ambiance. I can’t wait to return to Baku just to get the chance to stay here, and to enjoy this excellent bar/restaurant again…..highly recommended and I travel frequently. [...]
I’m really like the hotel! It’s 5 stars hotel the location is great and near to everything.. the old city, the luxury brand allot of restaurants and cafes, no need to take a car if you going around as you will walk around and enjoy the day with allot of things [...]
Hotel is PRIME LOCATION. Has to entrances. One if which is right in the center between shopping and dining and cafes at your door step. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are very modern & chic. Highly recommend. Also suggest booking through their website directly for best “secret” rates. The lobby bar had amazing cocktails as well. [...]
Everything in the hotel is amazing the staff the location ( outside the hotel cafes and restaurants and shops ) i liked the decoration of the hotel ,,, I Love the hotel and of course i’ll be back to it 👌🏼❤️ [...]
