The city of Bakı offers a wide range of hotel options: from the typical high-class and upper class western hotel chains (easily bookable via the Internet) to charming smaller hotels especially around the inner city İçəri Şəhər. Most tourists seem to prefer the latter and book local hotels and apartments close to the historic city center.
I enjoyed being out of the touristic area in the evenings and booked the ibis Baku City hotel in the east of Bakı. It is located in a more modern district used for residential houses as well as offices. The hotel follows the ibis hotel chain standards and offers a nice design, delicious breakfast and good rooms. Best of all: you can use the disconnected green line of the metro. The station Khatai is just a few meters away and brings you fast to Jafar Jabbarli, next to the main railway station, the 28 May metro station and the stop of the Airport Express.
