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.

... for the final packing in the morning. We are again so grateful for the good a/c as this packing would be brutal without the cool apartment.
Dinner tonight is at the restaurant near our apartment - good wine and delicious food for a final culinary farewell to Rome. Ah, it's bittersweet.. but the buffalo ricotta and honey is just plan sweet goodness.

As we watched from some stone benches, the group danced, wiggled, and giggled. A leader coached everyone, in Italian of course, and music filled the piazza. It was fun to find and offered a welcome rest with a smile.

Apparently, 1600 Romans could bath there and it was really interesting to see. We certainly felt dwarfed amongst these ruins. The walk back was very pleasant.
