Nestled in the heart of the Old City, just above the Maiden Tower, The Sultan Inn is arguably Baku’s only true boutique hotel. The hotel is located in a nineteenth century mansion and has just 11 rooms, all with open fires and tastefully decorated in dark wood with sumptuous chocolate brown velvets and gold highlights. Limited floorspace is amply compensated by a clever split-level floor design, so your bed chamber looks down over your cosy, romantic fireside seating area. Service is impeccably discreet and every detail has been taken care of to make your stay as pleasant and relaxing as possible. Up on the roof is an excellent restaurant – The Terrace (see Eat) – and the Q Bar (see Drink) which share one of Baku’s best terrace views over the Maiden Tower and rooftops of the Old City to the Caspian.
