Everything was perfect, very high quality service with a very friendly staff. The staff was very ready to help you with any problem you had. The location of the hotel is very good, close to the best restaurants and bars, close to shops with well-known brands and tourist spots to visit. The hotel was very clean, the suites were very luxurious and relaxing. The breakfast served at the hotel was very tasty and fresh with traditional Azerbaijani dishes but also other foods. There was a wide variety of food choices. I really want to come back to this hotel and to BAKU of course. [...]
Having travelled to more than 50 countries, I'll rate this as one of my favourite hotels in all aspecrs; Location, staff & service, rooms & amenities, breakfast. Tremendous value for money for the whole package. No better place than The Merchant Baku for an ideal vacation [...]
My first night at the Merchant was perfect. This is a fabulous hotel, impeccably decorated with top notch amenities and such attention to detail, even covering unsightly cords in the room with decorative features. The bathroom and shower were especially gorgeous, with antique-look fixtures and hunter green tiles. I found the hotel to be one of the cleanest, as is the standard in Baku, probably the cleanest city I've seen in a long while. Although I am not giving it a lesser rating, the second night at this hotel, I didn't sleep at all. Soundproofing is nonexistent. The room next door was having a party, drinking, playing crazy music all through the night and until 5 am. Far more than the room's capacity in guests (2) were coming and going and banging doors, hanging out in the hallway, disturbing the peace. Repeated calls to the desk led to maybe one visit by security (they later claimed), that did exactly nothing.... the hotel seemed to have little power or will in taming their unruly (and illegal, in terms of number) guests. The most disappointing part was the next morning the desk manager had a nonchalant "what can we do, some guests misbehave" commentary that seemed to suggest this sort of thing has to be tolerated. The hotel is lovely, and I would stay there again, but they need a more firm approach in regulating room parties and maybe some training for night staff.. [...]
Luxury boutique hotel Central location Specious beautiful designed rooms And bathrooms too Great service and Dedicated staff The staff surprised my daughter with a birthday cake that we didn’t even ask for! Tasty food too Great value of money Memorable stay highly recommended [...]
Viktor their Restraunt manager in particular was very rude. We were regularly packing stuff from our breakfast because it is difficult to fund vegetarian food in Baku. But on 21st Viktor while taking our order at the first refused to pack the stuff giving very stupid reasons. [...]
I had an exceptional experience at this hotel. Impeccably clean, spacious rooms, and the staff's hospitality was beyond compare. Their helpfulness made my stay memorable. The hotel's ideal location near Nezami Street and the old city added to the overall convenience. I highly recommend this establishment for a superb stay. [...]
One of the best hotels in Baku. Beautiful property, well maintained. The staff is professional and courteous. The location is excellent. The rooms are very tastefully done. The service is prompt. Food is artisanal and they have a well curated food and beverages menu. [...]
Very convenient location, across from the Old Town Baku and directly on the pedestrian street. Lively at night, lots of restaurants, coffee shops. Walking distance to the waterfront. The room with a terrace is very nice. [...]
Superb location, amazing and charming facility topped with first class staff. A clear %100 on all aspects. Quiet rooms, every day great breakfast, vibrant bar with live jazz/pop vocals. I enjoyed my stay very much and hope to return soon. [...]
Probably not too much more to add to previous reviews, in terms of great quality, service and location. I had room 215, which was very well appointed and was nice and quiet, tucked away at the end of the corridor. I didn't use the bar or restaurant, so can't comment on the quality of the food. [...]
This is the hotel to stay in Baku ! Best location in town! You have the sea, inner city, fountain square- all within a few moments of walking. Also the ambiance and vibe are superb. Great bar, friendly staff. Don’t hesitate- Baku is great and going back and forth to this hotel will make you smile all the time! [...]
Beautiful clean hotel, spacious rooms, excellent location, wonderful staff, they were very helpful and friendly Special thanks to Mushfiq, who was really helpful and helped us to plan our stay in Azerbaijan The bar is very interesting and sitting in the outdoor terrace in the busy street was nice Would definitely return to this hotel when in Baku again [...]

Excellent hotel, very well located to cafes and restaurants and to the wall city. Reception service was fantastic at any time! so professionals and helpful. The room was Impecable clean. I would have more range of pillows do. The decoration is outstanding and cheek. We loved it! [...]
Superb location. Amidst the heart of Baku tourist scene. Decor, dishes and helpful dudes at the staff counter! Quality linen, toiletries and comfy beds. The only glitch is lack of ventilation in the room/ bathroom. Can entertain oneself with Art and Books displayed all around the hotel. Strongly recommended. [...]
The hotel is located right at the centre from where everything was at walking distance. The staff was very friendly & helpful. Had a lovely corner room with a balcony. Want to thank the manager mr. Sariyev Mushfig especially for helping us during our entire stay & making our stay very comfortable. [...]
If you want to avoid one of the large impersonal hotels in Baku, I'd heartily recommend The Merchant. The decor, particularly in the bar/restaurant, is stunning with all the Art Deco touches, yet it is also very comfortable. The location is great - both near to the Bulvar and Old City. Whilst I rarely single out staff, I make the exception for Ilgar who was always round in the bar/restaurant and went out of his way to help out, recommend drinks, food and restaurants. He is definitely an asset to the hotel. Our room was lovely, but a minor niggle was the lack of a plug point for the hairdryer near the mirror. [...]
I stayed at the Merchant for 3 nights. Not only was it perfectly located, a couple of minutes from the Old City, but the staff, particularly Zaur, Ismayil and Lala, whose recommendations at the bar helped me discover traditional dishes and enjoy the best desert I have ever had, made me feel supported and at home on this solo trip. My room was spacious (I loved how spacious the balcony was too), quiet despite the proximity to the street and great music at the bar on the weekend. When I said I wanted to venture north for a day trip, they found a wonderful and friendly driver. I couldn't recommend The Merchant more! [...]
Excellent hotel in every respect. Brilliant staff, nice decor, and above all clean and tidy. Good breakfast (it's lovely to have tea brewed from tea leaves and not teabags!). Possibly the best 4 star hotel in Baku. [...]
The hotel is centrally located clean and the rooms are spacious . All the staff were helpful informative and professional . Emin Jamil on the front desk was very knowable and helpful . This is a great hotel to stay wether for business or pleasure [...]
