Where to stay
The stadium is in the city, though not really close to any hotels that are walking distance. For this reason, we recommend really any hotel located along either of the metro stations. If you would like an overall pleasant cultural experience and better understanding of Baku as a city, we recommend staying near the stop Icharishahar. This is near the Old City and seaside park, and is conveniently the last stop on the red line.
