16 January, 2022 seen 269Located in the Flame Towers Complex, just a 3-minute walk from the famous Martyrs' Alley, 5-star Fairmont Baku, Flame Towers features picturesque views of Baku City or Caspian Sea. We booked a two-night stay at Fairmont Baku in early August, during my birthday trip to Baku, Azerbaijan, for a two-day stay we paid USD 349, which I believe is the lowest amount…
Set in a 19th century building on Fountain Square, Azcot Hotel is located in the heart of Baku and offers air-conditioned rooms with a flat-screen satellite TV. It features a 24-hour front desk and free parking on site.
We booked Azcot Hotel for a one night stay (actually paid for two nights) in early August 2019, and paid for our stay about USD 120. We booked two nights because we had a plane back to Tbilisi in seconds night evening, not willing to spend the whole day on legs we booked two days.
The building and location where hotel is located is great. The service is OK, the interior is old and asks for renovation.
The stay at Azcot hotel partially reminded me a stay a couple of years ago in Tallin's Olav hotel, see: St.Olav Hotel in Tallinn, Estonia
The hotel is run by Azeri/Russian team. As we stayed the previous two nights at the 5-star Fairmount hotel it's hard to give an objective review for Azcot hotel, but I will try.
The most important thing about Azcot is that is very good located next to the Fountain square. The rest doesn't matter actually.

The old city is and Kirov National Park are within a 10-minute walk away. Guests at Azcot Hotel can relax in seating and lounge areas, some with antique furnishings. Boyukshor Lake is a 20-minute drive away.
The Bottom Line
I doubt I would book Azcot in the future, but it was OK to stay, cannot complain.
