I picked this hotel bc of its very close location to the bus station. I wasn't expecting much and didn't get much. The room was reasonably clean, the bed was almost comfortable but the noise from traffic ripping by at all hours was hard to deal with even over the loud hum of the good air conditioning. The windows are... More

Hotel Alux offered us a great night stay for about $50 on the 7 February, 2015. We were three adults and a child. The shower was abdolutely comforting - hot and cold water - and plentiful to bathe. I recommend the Hotel Alux to any family wanting to enjoy Cancun on a small budget.

Good - hotel is cheap. Bad - air conditioner didn't work. Overall, if I absolutely had to stay in Cancun center again, I would go back but I hope that I never have to spend a night in Cancun center again. I felt safe and that is always a good sign - the room was clean (ish) and for the... More

We booked a room at the Alux unfortunately our flight was late arriving in Cancun and then our luggage did not arrive! we were greatly delayed and had to wait a while to get the ADO bus to the bus station. The airport was so busy and the line for taxis was over an hour long. As a result we... More

We stayed at the Alux a few years ago before flying out of Cancun Airport. It was affordable and still is. However, five years ago we had a breakfast although it was rather simple and skimpy. This time no breakfast. In addition the bathroom came with a really bad odor like some animal had died in there. We kept the... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It has been quite a while since we have offered food at the hotel. There was a short time in which we offered light refreshments during the morning. We would have appreciated knowing about the situation of the odor in your room during your stay. This situation would have been... More

Hotel Alux was a wonderful place to stay in Cancun city. Around the corner from the main Avenida Tulum - you can catch the collectivo (transport van) to anywhere you want! Special prices for backpackers. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are always clean (I stayed here on 3 separate occasions); wifi works; free drinking water; air... More

If you need an economical room with few amenities, this is your place. We got the room for 400 pesos a night for 3 nights. The beds were fine for us, and the hot water, air condition, and the WIFI all worked. These rooms will not be profiled on the Travel Channel, but they'll do for a few nights. Located... More

The room was nice and spacious but dont plan on having to charge anything because there was only 2 electrical outlets in the room and one was taken by the TV. The bathroom was decent. The beds were ok. We were given a room on the fourth floor without an elevator. It is a good location to the bus depot.

As others have indicated, it's not somewhere to stay for a typical Cancun beach vacation, but as it is just a few meters from the ADO bus station, it's great for travelers who are just in town to catch a bus or plane out. We had a room with a window and it was fine--no mosquitoes and sufficiently air-conditioned, even... More

I have been using this hotel for over 15 years during my travels. It is clean, cheap,location for travelers perfect, and nice staff. The price is right. Some rooms have no windows, but when all you want is rest it is fine. I now live in Cozumel and still use the Alux when I have an early flight, late arriving... More
