The fact that this hotel is smack bang in the heart of the old town,makes it a great choice The room was cleaned and sheets/towels changed on a daily basis A very good restuarant attached,serving a very good beef steak and pizza etc But the downside was the failure of the air conditioning to take the chill off the room...

As the title suggests there is probably no better location to experience the buzz of the 'old town' than this hotel. Just home today and thoroughly enjoyed it. Taxi rank outside the front door and the restaurant attached is one of the first of multiple restaurants and bars along the lively streets leading to the main square (a couple of... More

Was really impressed with the hotel Baltum, our room was roomy with a balcony over looking the 2 busy streets, good sized bathroom and the room was totally pristine. Only fault was we had a kettle but no cups, but was easily sorted. The Urban resteraunt underneath is fab and reasonably priced, and good service. The hotel also has a... More

The outside appearance is very good. Inside even better. The hotel is very clean and well kept. I have to disagree with previous reviews about the size of the room. We had a room on the 3rd floor. It was more than adequate. I would have to say it was quite large really. The balcony was small but still lovely... More

Perfect location, immaculately clean, delicious breakfast (also amazing food served from restaurant Urban Pizza) and helpful staff. The only slight negatives I can comment from my visit is that there was no kettle in my room and the beds weren't the most comfortable however neither would prevent me from re-visiting. (I payed a little extra for room with balcony which... More

Hotel Baltum has a perfect location when staying in old town.the restaurant beside it " Urban Pizza " is very good and reasonable well worth a try when staying here. The only downside to this hotel is the rooms are very small and no sea view to be got.
