What A Dump!!
Too hot in summer (no AC), hard to find, and noisy. Would never stay there again. We only stayed one night and it was not a good deal even though it was a free night (I would never pay to stay there) thru our travel planner for our first night. We moved the next day to a decent, clean hotel and were happy to leave the Baltic.
I came to this hotel in february 2002, The hotel is right and notning special to point out.
For the price (I paid 60 euros for a double room), I think it's correct and not to far from the middle of the city.
Good for the money
My boyfriend and I went to Rome in March 2005. We arrived very late on the night of our check in, only to find out that we were not given the room we had booked 2 months earlier. We booked a double, and ended up with a closet with 2 cots in it! After complaining, we were told the hotel was full that night, but they would move us the next day. Luckily, they did and we ended up with the room we originally booked for the rest of the week. The double room was perfectly fine and a nice size. Plenty of room to move around. The shower was extremely small, and was difficult to move in, and was actually just a partitioned off section of the bathroom itself. Breakfast was minimal, just croissants and rolls. Overall a nice place though, very charming building and close to everything, and much less expensive than other hotels in the area.
Safe and clean but no toilet!
Its a clean and safe hotel with good secuity but be prepared to walk up 4 flights of stairs since you're not allowed to use the lift with luggage. And remember to ask if you can get a room with a toilet/wc as we were shocked to discover our room didn't have one. The hotel is in a safe location and round the corner are good selection of resturants to choose from.
Was not impressed!
Proximity to the main train station is good. The hotel is divided among two buildings so it is a bit confusing. The rooms are small and the shower stall in the room was flimsy at best. The walls are not very soundproof so if you have noisy neighbors or guest talking in the halls, you hear everything. I would not stay there again even though the price was good.
Good value, friendly staff
We arrived at the Hotel Baltic near midnight after our train was delayed, only to find that the hotel covers 2 buildings and we were in the other one! Never mind, we paid 100EUR for a twin room, which had very comfy beds, minibar and a small but clean bathroom with shower.
I was worried about being on such a main road, but the windows are double-glazed, and there are strong shutters to keep all the noise out.
The area is OK, a bit of a hike to the central touristy parts but a pleasant walk. This is obviously a residential area, which we were grateful for after seeinf the concentration of hotels elsewhere, with some amazing delis and cafes around.

... took a few photos and laughed at Roberto's jokes - he was a very good guide and kept us entertained. The tour then went outside to the Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum or the beginnings of the city of Rome. Again amazing stories of how they built and rebuilt the city and how the Roman society was developed etc. No doubt we got the brief overview but it was impressive stuff.
Anyway once the tour finished ...
... another thin shirt/ top as the humid days are meaning we have to wash constantly. Our bathroom looks like a chinese laundry. Went to two shops and bought a top each. Happy campers. We walked back via backstreets and as usual found some interesting " local" shops. Lots of elegant Romans out for lunch - suits and expensively dressed women. Grabbed a roman type sandwich and arrachini ball for lunch. Rome's backstreets are where it really happens i think. Last night behind the hotel ...
... museum thing, and the guy was talking on and on about al the history of gladiators, which was really quite fascinating! But the kids were getting antsy. We ended up huddling under this little place where there wasn't quite enough room to learn 5 attacks and 5 defenses... Karl ended up just going our in the rain and wildly swinging the sword things around. After that they did 1 on 1 battles, and that was kind of entertaining. Kurt wasn't doing well since everyone ...
... his brother’s name was “Two”. One of our breakfast servers is called “Hens”. Their supervisor who works as hard as any of them is "Daddy." For no obvious reason, there are very few female crew. There are two young women on the reception desk. The crew works very hard for was appears to be a fairly meager salary. Their work week is basically 11 hrs/day, 7 days a week. They generally work 9 months and are off 3 months. Many (most?) have families with ...
... about 1/3 of the way there, who had rooms available for 60 euros each. We quickly agreed to two rooms, took much needed showers, and Dorrie and I slammed our first bottle of wine in prívate. To keep things simple we decided to eat at the on site restaurant that night instead of venturing to the pizzería down the road. It turns out that the hotel is a happening spot for the locals as the attached dungeon bar quickly filled up with a couple dozen folks who consumed ...
