Baku, Azerbaijan

Merchant Baku Hotel

1858 elegance

Peaceful and exclusive historic hotel

Once home to the Caspian Shipping Company, this grand and opulent building in central Baku is reminiscent of when Baku was known as the “Paris of the Caucasus”. On the edge of the UNESCO World Heritage old town, the palatial Merchant is the city’s most exclusive address. Vintage furniture, traditional Azerbaijani carpets, marble floors, lofty ceilings and luxurious drapes set the Great Gatsby-themed tone. 

Guest rooms are beautifully maintained and impeccably clean, and en-suite bathrooms have traditional gold basins and bath taps, with bold Victorian-style tiles. Sixteen of the hotel’s 63 bedrooms feature their own balcony, and they all have controlled lighting and soundproofing so you get a great night’s sleep. At breakfast, enjoy the buffet of Viennese pastries, meats, cheeses and fresh fruits, and freshly brewed, hot and strong Azerbaijan tea, an international cooked breakfast or Azerbaijani-style breakfast with spiced eggs and lavash bread.
