Fairmont Baku lies within one of the three 244m Flame Towers: an award-winning new development that is now the tallest building complex in Azerbaijan. The Flame Towers’ three columns are a symbol of Azerbaijan, which is known as the 'land of fire'. 

The hotel has opened with an initial offering of 140 rooms and suites – out of a total of 318 – with views of the city of Baku, the old Inner City or the Caspian Sea. 

The hotel has more than 2,500m2 of flexible meeting space, including a Grand Ballroom that can be divided into two or three sections, a Junior Ballroom, two boardrooms and seven additional meeting rooms.

The meeting and banquet area of Fairmont Baku features cutting-edge AV technology and wireless internet.

The hotel has four restaurants – a speciality steak house and a French patisserie, as well as a bistro and a jazz bar.
