We got let down by another hotel a week before travelling and the Irshad was still available to take us in just before the F1 race weekend.
It's got a lot of good points - the staff speak English (not always great but miles better than my Azerbaijani or Russian!) and are really helpful and friendly, it's got 24-hour access with a reception that is always staffed which was really useful. Breakfast might be basic for some people, but it was full of things I really like - olives, bread/toast, jams and eggs. Perfect for us. Our room was spacious and clean with good aircon and a nice walk-in shower.
The only negative is that it's a little way away from the closest Metro station and Airport bus drop-off (both at 28th May), so the walk might be a little much for some - traffic is chaotic and the pavements are stepped and not always very flat. But taxis are cheap if you'd prefer not to walk. When we did walk (sometimes after midnight) it was safe to do so - we were never approached by anyone, and we never had an issue of any kind with safety inside the hotel. And directly outside is quite a nice park with a large monument.
All-in-all it might not be everyone's first choice due to the location, but if you're looking for a good value hotel with decent facilities and helpful staff then this might be one to consider.
