    I reached Sheki early in the morning by train and Ilgar offered to send a taxi to pick me up. The guesthouse is a traditional house which I love very much. It reminds me to my grandmother's house during my childhood which make it very homely to me. Ilgar and his family is also very friendly and helpful. The house is very strategically situated to all the interesting places to visit in Sheki. This place is definitely recommended to anyone who wish to visit Sheki. Oh, and I miss the cat.

    Ilgar was a very welcoming host. Organised a taxi from station to his guesthouse and helped with onward travel. Emailed and whatsapped before hand with directions and asked if we needed help. Traditional tea on arrival and a nice breakfast in the morning. Good location near nice restaurants and the main Sheki sites. Would recommend and return if visiting again. Thanks Ilgar.

    Perfect little guesthouse near old fortress walls in Sheki. Hot water showers and clean toilet, although would like to see some hooks in the bathroom. Host Ilgar is fantastic and warm and welcoming. Could not have asked for more. Even breakfast was amazing!

    Ilgar is a very caring and kind person. He was always checking on me if i need help in anything. Location is great. It is 10 mins walk from the Khan Palace. It was a pleasant stay at his idyllic cottage. Nothing to complain about overall.

    If you go to Sheki, absolutely stay with Ilgar! He is a kind and welcoming host with good knowledge of the city and things to do there. We had a cozy couple nights' stay at his place and especially appreciated the family's awesome cat, who is very cuddly! It was quite cold at night, but the gas heaters warmed up the room substantially, and Ilgar kindly provided hot water for çay. Would recommend and stay here again!

    Ilqar is a fantastic host who will help out with anything you need. I arrived on the overnight train from Baku and he arranged a taxi and allowed me to check in early. Premises have a pleasant homely feel, tucked away in a quiet part of town. Decent breakfast.

    Ilgar is a very friendly host and his house is lovely. Location is a bit out of town but it's close to the tourist sites which is very handy. The hot shower in the attached bathroom was good and breakfast was basic but fresh & hot! Security is minimal but due to location problems are unlikely.
