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 design of this hotel is 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.

Our bartender is always ready to give advice and please you with a wide range of ready-made drinks. It includes classic, favorite homemade drinks as well.
Overall my stay was good. The room and location was great. The cocktails at the bar were really good. The only area for improvement would be housekeeping. On areival I did not have face cloths in the bathroom and my one towel was ripped. Overall everything else was amazing. Thanks [...]
Overrated. The service is very slow and it’s overpriced for what it is. I’m not sure if it’s a new hotel or newly furnished one. But the rooms are good the bathrooms are ok. It’s not as clean as it should be for all the high rate it got it’s not as great as I thought. And the higher ranking staff members are bad at dealing with guests. This is a service industry and if they keep it up they will definitely rank lower and lower. I’m not happy with this hotel [...]
Great location. The room we had was huge with a small room to the side. Good facilities within the room and plenty of places to sit in the communal area. The shower in our room flooded the floor. Breakfast was good Didn’t find the staff very welcoming. We had an early morning check in and found it disappointing that they made us pay for a coffee at 7am when we’d travelled through the night. Good facilities let down by unfriendly staff. [...]
The best hotel in Baku for so many reasons: Excellent service and so kind team Restaurant with awesome dishes Rooms and hotel have high level of cleanliness and maintenance. The location…you will not find a better place for sure! It is accessible and close to any interesting point in the city and close to old city and the famous Nazimi street. Breakfast is rich and even when we had to get out early for a trip they prepared us tasty sandwiches. We will definitely come again. [...]
Very nice hotel with pleasant helpful staff , clean comfortable rooms , good breakfast and nice interior. Location is near all the main attractions especially the main restaurant and shopping areas and the old city. [...]
You get what you buy. Very good 4*hotel. Beautiful interior, lovely staff, in the perfect location in Baku since you can walk everywhere and are only 100m away where most tours start. Only 2 downsides: you have to close the toilet seat and the door otherwise you can smell it in the whole room even when room service was just here and it is freshly cleaned. The service at breakfast is very friendly, but super-slow. It takes a very long time for the food to arrive. Just keep this in mind when you have to be somewhere at a certain time. Apart from that I highly recommend this place for your stay in Baku. [...]
One of the best stays in a fabulous hotel with some refined, tasteful furnishings in the recent times. This hotel does really speak for quality. Spacious rooms and excellent facilities including the shower. Above all, what stood for me were the amazing set of staff, who really understand the word "hospitality". I am very pleased and thanks to all of you guys! [...]
The hotel is comfortable, elegant, modern, and perfectly located in the city centre. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. One note: if you are a very light sleeper you should request a room away from the pedestrianised street (Mammadamin Rasul Sade) as it’s a popular street with cafes that stay open all night on Fri and Sat. There was no noise after 11pm any other night. The restaurant serving staff were friendly and proficient. I would give a special mention to Ramadan and Yasher for their excellent and friendly service. [...]
I stayed at the Merchant Baku for 3 nights in August, and this is the perfect place for a holiday in Baku. The location is super convenient, with the main entrance to the Old City less than a 5 min walk away, and Fountain Square a pleasant 10 min walk away on a nice avenue of shops, cafes and restaurants. The hotel is beautifully decorated, with a lot of attention to detail and style. The Latitude Restaurant had delicious food and drinks, and the inside bar had comfortable seating and a live singer in the evenings. The staff is extremely attentive to needs, pleasant and friendly, and treat the guests like they are VIPs. Just a great experience overall. [...]
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 [...]
