"The hotel is allright although as mentioned in other reviews not quite a 5-star. (To be completely honest judging hotels across the world basing on 5 star system is the same as estimating students' academic level globally using a 5-point scale - you are going to get the same degree of objectiveness.)
Check-in was quick and hassle-free. Wi-Fi is functioning, fast enough to skype home. Health center is pretty nice, features gym, pool, saunas and massage rooms (haven't checked them though).
Front desk ladies were quite polite and helpful whenever I had any questions or issues. Comfort-wise I had little complaints. The only one I remember was that my shower was sprinkling water all over the place and its hose was leaking. While I was away in the office during the daytime, the problem was fixed.
Laundry is available, a bit costly, 2 laundry bags cost me about 40 manats. But this is a normal price in the european hotels, I should say, and the quality was good. Plus the company was paying for it anyway)))
Food: I only had breakfasts there. The selection of food is pretty wide, and it is well-cooked. A few types of meat and sausage, cheese, fries, scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, fruits, vegetables etc.
My room was on the lower level than front desk with windows overlooking the bay and the road. So there was noise from the road traffic and construction works. I got used to it but I guess all people have various sensitivity. Consider it. Maybe it will improve once Eurovision rush is gonna be over and the road and embankment is finished.
At the moment location is not perfect as it is hard to walk towards the city center due to road works. But you can easily take a bus. Once all the job is finished walking should become more easy and more enjoyable."
