Very nice hotel in the heart of city baku Azerbaijan and very beautiful and nice hotel and all city in walking distance and room is very comfortable and all shalimar hotel staff is very helpful and specially manager riz is very kind and cooperative thanks to all
Location is amazing and very close to many places. Great value for the money in comparison to nearby hotels in the area. Helpful Stuff especially Rizwan and David. Huge possibility that you might get a room upgrade based on availability. The hotel is from an old renovated building.
This hotel has the perfect location to discover Baku, near the main attractions and close to restaurants and stores. The rooms are tastefully decorated with a mix of modern and classic., Riz, the hotel manager, treated us like family with helpful hints and suggestions for getting the best Baku experience. Our room was beautifully appointed...spacious, clean and comfortable. It was upgraded from our original reservation thanks to Riz.
Bottom line is that you can probably find better properties in this price range.
Though the property is centrally located in close proximity to Sahil metro, bus stations and other popular tourist areas such as old Town. The manager Adar is friendly and helpful, the rooms look beautiful and inviting, a few things must be noted.
Double bed in deluxe room consists of two single beds, and they'll not stay together if you move towards the middle. Bed sheets are considerably undersized and will not stay put, either. Spring mattresses of not the best quality. In total, it's a mildly irritating sleeping experience. Additionally, as noted by others, no way to regulate or turn off the ventilation, resulting in a irritating humming sound throughout the night.
Breakfast is basic, but for the price, a bit of an insult, or joke.
We needed a room because the one we had in other hotel was not ok. So, as walking customer we asked for double room and we got it. Really a good opportunity to stay in Shalimar for some nights and it was a pleasure. Good nice room, perfect bathroom, just in city center. Best location to visit the city by walking.
Friendly and helpful staff ... we thank you again Rezwam (? Sorry if I write wrong) to meet our request
If back to Baku we will come again in Shalimar!
