Located in central area at the heart of the tourist complex at Old City, OLD EAST Hotel is close to the business districts of the Baku city and attracts tourists from all over. The hotel was recently refurbished (summer 2016) and renamed (previously it was marketed under the name of Noah's Arc). Old East Hotel is just a stone throw away from the famous Maiden's Tower and Baku Boulevard. Location of hotel could not be better: Old East hotel is on the peaceful small street inside the old city of Baku, and the new city centre and the seaside boulevard are in few steps. Tube station nearby literally a minute walk from the Icheri Sheher metro station, right outside the old city walls, making easy getting around the city. Since the old city can be confusing to walk around in, it's nice to be located in such a way that you won't... There's a supermarket 5 meters away from the doorstep with an ATM located just outside the hotel. Given the prices of Baku hotels (most of which are big Kempinski/Marriott/Hyatt chains) this hotel is a very good find.

The hotel is ideally located for sightseeing, and just a stroll away from most of Baku's amenities - you could take a taxi if feeling extremely lazy but there's really no need. The seafront/port is a 20 minute walk away (max) and the palace and national museum of miniature books are within about 5-10 minutes of the hotel. Apart from being in the very city centre, Old City is brilliant place to stay as it is very quiet at night as no cars allowed in Old City unless with special permits.

The hotel has 5 floors with a restaurant on the top. Hotel provides an excellent value, with just 10 rooms they have 24 hours reception with the staff responding to everything with enthusiasm. Rooms have decent space, and well equipped for hotel in this bracket, and always ensure available mineral water. All rooms are equipped with satellite TV, e-safe box, mini-bar, hairdryer, electric iron and iron board, tea&coffee facilities and many other fittings. There is also an apartment that is able to accommodate up to 5 persons.

The furnishings are a bit dated, but the rooms are large. Request rooms that numbers end in 2 or 3 you'll get a balcony. The best room is on upper floor with huge bathroom, and it has a nicer city view. There is no elevator, so if you have issues with stairs ask for 1st or 2nd floor. Rooms are not soundproof and you hear almost everything through the walls. There's a kettle, teabags and water bottles in the room provided for free, which is welcome, and a flatscreen TV with satellite channels. The beds are comfortable. The bathrooms have some amusing coffee cup tiles with odd English "happy happy top bro" motifs on.

Best thing about breakfast is the fabulous view at the top floor to the sea and a large part of the city. In the evening you could enjoy the sea breeze from the restaurant’s open windows with a real Azeri tea. Vegetarians friendly breakfast is available as well. The breakfast is simple but quite good, which can easily keep you filled up till dinner time. Yoghurt, apples, cheese, pickles, jams, breads, pancakes and hot dishes (typically sausages and either scrambled egg or chips) are available Monday to Friday 7:30 a.m - 09:30 a.m.; Saturday, Sunday and public holidays 8:00 a.m - 11:00 a.m.

Free Wi-Fi signal is strong as separate signal installed on each floor. Hotel's computer is free for guests and working very fine. Hotel staff is very helpful and attentive, and goes out of their way to help make your stay pleasant.

Known for its very central location, high standards of service and moderate rates Noah's Ark Hotel is an ideal accommodation spot in Baku for all types of travellers.
