Historical Ganja in the heart of Azerbaijan combines history and culture from 17th-century mosques and caravanserai to a house made from glass bottles and Nizami Ganjavi’s Mausoleum. Here are some of the best hotels in Ganja to suit every sort of traveller, from authentic homestays to luxurious chains.

1. Hotel Ramada Plaza, Ganja

Chain Hotel

The Ramada ranks as one of the best hotels in Ganja, offering a selection of rooms and suites. Located near Heydar Alivey Park and a few kilometres from central Ganja, the five-star hotel provides world-class comfort with a variety of amenities. All rooms exhibit a classical design with tea and coffee facilities, a large bathroom and a seating area. Combine this with the onsite nightclub, international standard restaurant, two swimming pools and sports areas, and it’s understandable why so many people stay at the Ramada.

Guests often stay at Ganja Hotel for its stellar location in the city centre near City Hall. Rooms range from singles and doubles to more luxurious suites. Each room has a modern bathroom, air-conditioning and access to free Wi-Fi. Apart from the location, the other appeal is the hotel’s relatively unchanged Soviet-style décor from the former communist days.

3. Ganja HomeStay

Featured on Lonely Planet as one of the top homestays in Azerbaijan, Ganja HomeStay offers a cultural experience with a local family. Guests receive three daily home-cooked meals, providing the chance to taste Azeri favourites. Those looking for a first-hand account into the local way of life with the famed Azerbaijani hospitality will enjoy their time at this homestay. As a bonus, the price includes a guided city tour by the experienced and knowledgeable owner. An excursion to Lake Goygol can be arranged at affordable rates too. Few places in Ganja provide accommodation in a traditional home with three meals and a city tour at such an affordable price.

5. Karvansaray Hotel


Located opposite Ganja Bus Station and within walking distance of Nizami Mausoleum, Karvansaray Hotel boasts moderately sized rooms at mid-range prices. All the rooms, from singles to triples and premium suites, feature a flat-screen TV and a desk. Facilities include a tennis court, a swimming pool and a sauna. The basic interior décor has an air of Soviet nostalgia and provides a comfortable place to stay for a night or two. Guests rate Karvansaray as one of the better hotels in Ganja despite being quite far from the city centre.

6. My Way Boulevard


The modern hotel near the Turkish Baths features a selection of elegant rooms with comfortable beds, air-conditioning and a flat-screen TV. My Way Boulevard has an on-site bar and two restaurants; one specialises in local cuisine and the other serves sushi. The world-class facilities include a fitness centre, sauna along with spa services. Selecting this mid-range hotel in Ganja provides both leisure and business travellers with all the necessary amenities and comfort they need in Azerbaijan’s second largest city.

7. Cinema Boutique Hotel

Cinema Boutique’s fashionable location near the start of Javad Khan Pedestrian Street puts it within walking distance of most of Ganja’s cafés and restaurants. Decorated with flair, the rooms provide a level of luxury with the essential amenities any tourist or business traveller might need. Unlike other hotels in Ganja, Cinema Boutique provides a free shuttle service as well as helping guests arrange city tours.
