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.

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 [...]
Wonderful hotel! Very well designed stylish interior. The rooms are spacious with high ceilings.. The location of the hotel is really perfect! The hotel staff is extremely professional, helpful and friendly. [...]
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 [...]
Merchant Baku Hotel is in a central position opposite the old town , near the lake front. The staff are very helpful, knowable and professional. [...]
From the moment we stepped in to the moment we stepped out, The Merchant had given us nothing short of a marvelous experience. The service was impeccable, the location is very convenient, the vibe is so cool, the interiors are amazing(!!!) and the experience is so wonderful! The guys at the front desk were all very helpful. It was the week before the F1 race, and even if they were very busy, nobody feels that they were not attended to. We exit out front, and it leads us to the Old City. The exit at the back leads to a line of cafes, restaurants and shops and you just get lost on all the beauty and vibe of the place. There is also a pedestrian underpass that leads you straight to the corniche. The interiors are well thought of, if I can just stay in the hotel and savour the nice interiors all the time, I would. We are just so happy we chose The Merchant over other hotels. And if ever we would go back to Baku, we will not stay in any other hotel except for this one. Truly worthy of more than five star. Kudos to everyone who made our stay in Baku even more memorable! [...]
Highly recommended hotel to stay near downtown.. friendly staff with clean and new facilities .. very secure and safe environment .. have a door directly to street which have a variety of coffee shops.. near to old town city, Nizami st. and sea [...]
The hotel is located in a very convenient place, near Nizami Square and the old historical area, the rooms are very clean and have all the necessary stuff. Many thanks to the reception, especially the friend Jaafar and Amir, they are characterized by a wonderful spirit and an attractive smile. They gave us a lot of help. Good luck to them. [...]

Excellent hotel with an equally excellent location. It is walkable to most of the city's key sites and attractions. The hotel staff were very welcoming and friendly. They accommodated my early arrival of 6am and provided me a room ahead of the regular afternoon check in time. The hotel is beautiful and well appointed with multiple dining areas with my favorite being an outdoor restaurant area that is along one of the best nightlife pedestrian streets. The Latitude and Longitude Bar at this hotel also has some of the best cocktails :) [...]
It was a great time that I spent in Baku this time and most of the credit goes to the hotel and its management. I am definitely returning.. The management has a personal touch that I have never experienced before, especially when I received a piece of pie to celebrate my birthday when I totally forgot about it. The location is amazing and the housekeeping kept the room clean, arranged, and restocked with all consumables. The room TV has many great and wide range of channels. I really couldn't find any issues to complain about. The stay at this hotel made my Baku visit amazing. [...]
