Accor has debuted its economy brand Ibis in Azerbaijan with a hotel in Baku City.

Ibis Baku City is located in the cultural and business part of the city, with attractions such as the Heydar Aliyev Centre designed by Zaha Hadid, the Maiden Tower, and Tofik Bakhramov Stadium situated within walking distance.

The hotel comprises 202 rooms featuring the brand’s Agora design developed by Innocad. This involves a functional, modern interior for the rooms, while the public areas feature decorative details which reflect the local culture such as cushion ornaments and brickwork in the reception area.

Rooms feature a ‘Sweet Bed’, a work desk, minibar, safe and bath amenities, soundproofing and blackout curtains.

There are also meeting facilities on-site, which include three rooms with capacity for up to 135 guests, modern video and audio technology.

Alexis Delaroff, COO of Accor Russia, Ukraine, Georgia and the CIS region, commented:

“We are delighted to open our second hotel in the capital of Azerbaijan. This is a completely new product for Baku in terms of service and design. The hotel will not only be the first ibis in the country, but will also be the first in the region of Russia, Ukraine, Georgia and the CIS countries to present the new global design concept of the ibis brand – Agora.

“Ibis Baku City will be perfect for both leisure and business travellers. Comfortable rooms, excellent location in the city center, high standards of ibis brand service and AllSafe sanitary standards guarantee guests the most pleasant stay, and the price-quality ratio will certainly be its competitive advantage and will attract even more tourists to this beautiful city. Baku is a unique combination of a mild climate, delicious cuisine, history and traditions with ultra-modern architecture and high business potential. I am confident that as the borders open and the world returns to travel, Baku will attract more and more travelers.”

Ibis operates over 1,200 hotels in over 65 countries.
