I stayed here with a friend in August for a week. Its situated right in the centre of the old town, which is full of bars and shops and restaurants suited for families. The beach is a 5 minute walk away and theres a taxi rank right outside the hotel. The new town (where the bars and clubs are) was... More

Spent week in mid august here. Everything is easy walking distance from hotel. A recently added roof terrace is perfect to chill and get a tan at the same time! Hotel rooms very clean with average facilities - beds were bit too firm for someone who has a bad back but the alcohol from the many bars and restaurants helped... More

We booked a 4 night stay as a birthday celebration. We wanted somewhere central in the old town for access to the beach and resteraunts . Hotel Baltum ticked all those boxes, it was clean and modern. However it was not exactly ideal as you could hear the loud music from the bars till 3-4am every night. We had a... More

My husband and I stayed in a superior room on the top floor with amazing views in September 2015, the room was cool and and very clean. The location of the Hotel Baltum was perfect for the beach and bars and restaurants no taxis were required. We enjoyed the experience so much we are returning again in September 2016

All of the other reviews cover the drawbacks due to its location, I was prepared for this as it was cheap enough for a quick golf trip. The main drawback is how the rooms smell. As the sinks do not have conventional u bends but a flexible pipe the smell from the main foul drains comes up into the room.... More

Just back from visiting Albufeira with a friend. The hotel is right in the old town which means you do not have to wait on a taxi for ages. The queues for taxis are very long in the evenings so it was great not having to waste time on this. The beach is less than 5 min walk away. The... More

The location is spectacular. You cannot get better than this. The hotel is apparently well known, our cab driver had no trouble getting us there and knew right away which hotel it was and where. It's about a 5 minute walk to the beach (at most), meanwhile you are walking between souvenir shops and restaurants, so it's a really nice... More
