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.

I recently stayed at The Merchant for 5 nights. It was my first visit to Azerbaijan and from the very moment I stepped through the front door to the hotel, I was welcomed like an old friend. The hotel is every bit as beautiful as any photographs show. It’s location is perfect. It really is right in the heart of where you need to be. You are only steps away from cafes, restaurants and shops and the old town. During my stay I walked everywhere and it was never an issue. The area has an amazing vibe and everyone is so friendly. You can easily get to Baku Boulevard, see the Flame Towers and explore the Baku old town. My bedroom was a king size with balcony and situated on the fourth floor. The balcony overlooks the street to the rear of the front entrance. Having a balcony is lovely. It has a table and chairs on it and it’s a great place to people watch. The bedroom was amazing and really huge. The facilities provided have all been well thought out and leave the traveller wanting for nothing. There is a fantastic lounge seating area in the hotel where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served. There’s also a superbly well stocked bar that conjures up the most wonderful cocktails. I think a special mention as to why this hotel is so fabulous would be because of its staff. In no time at all you feel like they are your friends. I felt welcomed every time I returned to the hotel. The front desk were always eager to assist with any queries regarding my stay but all the staff were amazing. There is also a spa facility at the hotel. I can recommend the relaxing massage. Olga was excellent. A special thank you would also have to go to Ramazan. Every morning he served me the most delicious and incredibly hearty Azeri breakfast. He always took the time to speak with me and make me laugh and smile and I really felt more than just another visitor to the hotel. As you can tell, there are no bad words about The Merchant from me, only those of praise. This is now one of my favourite hotels that I have ever stayed in and I would have no doubts whatsoever in recommending it to others. Thank you for the wonderful memories. [...]
Perfect location, amazing staff, beautiful luxurious small hotel. I cannot recommend it highly enough! We are from the UK and had never been to Azerbaijan. We stayed here for 4 nights and then moved to the 5* JW Marriott Ashberon, which was lovely, but actually we enjoyed the Merchant much more. We had a king room with balcony, which was lovely, bath robes, slippers, everything we needed. The hotel has a really cool bar with a relaxed vibe, serving food and drink, including cocktails. The staff were friendly and attentive. Choice of Azeri or English breakfast which was very good. We ate there one night and it was one of the best meals we had. If you order a gin, you only need a single, measures are huge!! The hotel is very close (2 min walk) to the gates to the very picturesque Old Town and there are loads of bars and restaurants all around, so the location is perfect to explore. Reception will get you a taxi if you need to go further, and will tell you how much it should be so you don't get ripped off. I have stayed in many hotels and this is one of my favourites. Thank you Merchant Baku!!! [...]
Merchant Baku is a gem in the heart of Baku Old district. It delighted us at every turn. The staff are amazing, the decor is beautiful, the rooms are large, comfy and brilliantly decorated. The food and drink top quality. We would come back here in a heartbeat. A big shout out to Ramadan who served us breakfast each morning. He was a charming, funny and made sure our mornings started with laughter. [...]
A wonderful gem of a hotel in the heart of Old Baku! Prime location for walking around to explore the city. Lots of shops and restaurants and people watching to be had here, with a number of landmarks within walking distance (and it’s a lovely walk!). The hotel looks charming, clean, and has lovely staff who are extremely helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed our stay and would happily stay here again! They also had good recommendations for tours into the outer city and landmarks including the petroglyphs. Our tour guide, Rizwan was amazing and we had a blast. He was extremely knowledgeable of the history of Azerbaijan and made sure we all had a good day exploring! [...]
Lovely hotel to stay in, great location, walking distance from all the sites. Old town is on the doorstep. Sakhqvqt at reception was very helpful throughout the stay and helped organise tours. PCR tests are needed before you travel which can be booked at hotel. [...]
Perfect location, spacious and clean room, the Azeri breakfast is a must try. What made our stay extra special was the staff. We were traveling with a baby and front desk as well as restaurant staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. [...]
This hotel is amazing. It is centrally located next to the Old Town and within walking distance of most of central Baku. The rooms are spacious and glorious. The balconies are worth the extra money. The service is amazing. COVID tests available at the hotel if you ask at check-in. They also booked us an amazing day trip to the petroglyphs, mud volcanos, and mountain of fire. The breakfast is very yummy and our server each day was Ramadan. He was so attentive and amenable to changes we requested. The bar and restaurant are also good. I would come back here in a heartbeat!! [...]
We were over for the Ireland match and we were amazed at how beautiful the hotel was. Great comfortable beds. The food and service was also top class. Many thanks for your hospitality. I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone. Thanks again. [...]
5 Stars!!! Staff was excellent! I was very happy with my room, location, and with the staff! I would definitely return to Baku and the Merchant Hotel again and again! The location was also wonderful, everything is right out the door: restaurants, shops and the area also has a terrific night life! [...]

Unbelievable service. Although in the middle of a very busy pathway/ plain area.. 0 noise. 50meters from Hard Rock cafe and plenty hidden gems. What a fabulous location and the room is just enormous! Great breakfast and super good service. Will never stay anywhere else again in Baku. Walking distance from many parks and museums and the Caspian sea. [...]
Выбрали данный отель, поскольку он находится в самом центре Баку, он очень новый, из-за пандемии в прошлом году там никто не жил. У этого отеля шикарный ремонт и дизайн. Номера замечательные, убираются очень хорошо. Следят за всем. Сотрудники отеля просто невероятные люди. Они сделают все, чтобы ваше пребывание было комфортно и решат все проблемы. Если честно, то давно не встречала такого шикарного сервиса. Что касается еды, то она очень хорошая. Мы были в Баку первый раз, и поэтому все в новинку, но нам очень понравилось. Также при отеле есть бар, где очень разнообразное меню напитков. Обязательно сходите туда, даже если не будете жить в отеле. Но если вы хотите остановится в самом сердце Баку, то выбирайте именно этот отель, не пожалеете. [...]
Two days work in Baku, coming back to this place each night was a delight. Really in the heart of the city, terrific ambiance, big, well appointed rooms, comfortable bed, (like I don't want to get up!) Plus excellent food and service at the bar, and shout out to Abulfaz for his great service and recommendations! [...]
Great location in the central Baku - and special thanks to supervisor Abulfaz for his help and friendly service. By the way, the mighty Burger was mighty amazing! Best Burger i have had in a Long time! [...]
I stayed here over new year 2020/2021. The design of the place is half-way between Art Deco and Abigail Ahern's interior design, ie fabulous. The restaurant/bar area is particularly impressive, along with the quality of the bathroom area in the rooms. The staff went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and welcome, even bringing me a glass of sparkling wine just after midnight. The menu was small but high quality. The prices were mid-range, including for drinks. Their cocktail staff are excellent. [...]
Обслуживание на высочайшем уровне👍🏻 Каждое блюдо по своему вкусно и красиво предоставленно😍 Интерьер очень красивый и уютный. Обязательно вернусь ещё раз👍🏻 Официант Исмаил отдельно благодарна вам. [...]
