Baltum Stay.
Friendly staff, excellent roof terrace & bar, free wi/fi, & a short walk to beach. Will not be returning to Albufeira, it's like a mini Benidorm. However if you like that scene, the hotel is for you!! Timemaster.

Excellent location to see the old town of Albufeira. Can get a bit noisy late night/early morning, but expected that. Room was small for a twin/double, hardly any space between bed & walls. Walls were a bit dirty, as was toilet door, a lick of white paint would have cured that. Asked for a room with balcony, got email 4 weeks before arriving saying, fine/noted. Didn’t get balcony, got view of emergency stairs & bins. Got a move but still no balcony.

Comfortable and good location
Lovely hotel in the old town, no pool but a roof too jacuzzi and bar area and close to the beach. The rooom seemed to have a funny smell to it but I'm not sure I was just unlucky. However the overall was very clean and a comfortable bed and nice bathroom with a good showerr

Fab location, service could be a little better
Hotel could not have been in a better location. 1 minute from the beach, bars, and resturants. Hotel and room seemed clean however the bathroom did smell quite bad (Maybe the drains?) We were staying in albuferia for 4 days for a wedding and had two rooms next to one another. Myself and partner in one room, and sister in the room next door. My sister's room had the same problem. In fairness to the hotel we never told them so never gave them a chance to rectify this issue. The hotel service was okay, however we were never given the Wi-Fi password nor told how to use the safe in the room. There was no instructions about this in the room. Another downfall to the room was that there was very little plug sockets. Therefore if you wanted to try your hair and charge your phone it was a choice of one or the other. A small issue I guess.

Modern Clean Hotel
The location makes this hotel. Ideal if you want to be in the Old Town Area. Spotless room, comfy beds, lovely rooftop bar. Perfect for a short break.

Poor 2.0
If you’re over the age of 17-18 then not good
The room smelt very damp, so much so that the blankets almost felt wet. It was a tiny room, only a three quarter bed as oppose to a double. Very very loud hotel. I do not recommend and we cancelled our booking after 1 night and stayed elsewhere
