TravelPod Member ReviewsAustin Hotel Baku
The fabulous location is the best attribute of this boutique hotel. Situated in a lovely mall in central Baku lined with cafes and restaurants, the hotel is within easy walking distance to high end shops, banks and attractions such as the Maiden Tower, the Old Walled City (Icheri Sheher) and Shirvanshah Palace - and the boulevards of the Caspian Sea. Staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable with great views over the lovely architecture of the fine buildings lining the mall and beyond. The hotel does not have a restaurant for evening meals, although this is not a real drawback as their are many cafes and restaurants nearby. Breakfast was very limited but adequate. The only real issue with the Austin Hotel is that there are no lifts and although we are pretty fit and agile, and travel light - we found carrying our baggage up the many flights of the very steep, narrow stairwell quite onerous. A front desk staff member however, despite our protesting, insisted on helping us with our bags. The reception area is tiny and although there is 24 hour reception, we did have to wake our a front desk person for our very early departure on our last day. We would recommend this hotel but only to fit people!

The Austin Hotel was fabulously located in Nizami Street Mall central Baku, surrounded by numerous open cafes, restaurants and parklands - and within walking distance to attractions such as the Old City, Maiden Tower and the seashore boulevards of the Caspian Sea. It was also close to theatres, banks and posh high end shops such as Armani, Benetton …

The highlight of the city, from a historical perspective at least, is the UNESCO-listed old city - a walled warren of cobbled streets, mosques, shops and cafes which made excellent wandering territory. ...

... the border town of Batumi. Out came the map and we peered over the detail before deciding not to take the main road but to take the primary road across the country and get to Tbilisi quicker....oh sweet mother of God what a terrible decision!
The road started out fine, Ger was driving and was doing his best to make time. The scenery in southern Georgia really is something to behold. Mountains bearing down on you from all sides, covered in trees and the odd house ...
... went there first and then wandered around the old city. I took some photos of the buildings and fountains. We stopped at the old Multani Caravanserai and went to the restaurant there. The waiter got very huffy when we only ordered 2 salads and an order of grilled potatoes = french fries. When Trish said we didn't want any water, he walked off and didn't even take Tony's drinks order. I was carrying a full bottle of water so ...
