We were there during summer so we did have plus and minuses like always. Pluses are price, location, size of the apartment, quiet area. Minus- It might be a problem if you are without​ car and kids who do not like to walk((.

Hi, I just saw your question, you can go to the restaurant Shirvanshah which is old town Baku. The traditional dances start at night i would recommend calling in first and booking a table. Regards, KhawlaF
