Azerbaijan to build more 3-star hotels


Azerbaijan intends to solve the problem of lack of three-star hotels in the capital on the eve of the First European Olympic Games in 2015, Azerbaijani Culture and Tourism Minister Abulfaz Garayev told media today.

"Several projects were launched and one will see the construction of up to six, three-star hotels in Baku by the middle of next year," he said. "They will open on the eve of the Games."

He said that the ministry continues working in this direction.

"We are creating the legal framework, give recommendations and render the necessary assistance," Garayev said.

Around 514 hotels and hotel-type facilities operate in Azerbaijan.
