Right next to the ADO station, which is its main plus value. Oh and the fact that there is AC. Apart of that, the place is very normal, a bit expensive (350 pesos for one double bed), and has no spirit. But that's the story of Cancun. There is Internet access but you cannot sit and the area stinks. In... More

I have stayed there for the location close to the bus station. The facilities are basic, but room was clean. The only problem I had was with the shower. No hot water. But I can not complain much, for the price I paid. Overall is a good budget place to stay, if only for one night.

We stayed one night at Hotel Alux in February. We picked this hotel because of its close proximity to the bus station. It was a great bargain, only about $40 Canadian a night, though it is definitely a 'no frills' sort of place, it was fine for the short time we stayed there. The room was a good size, and... More

We were finishing travels through the Yucatan peninsula and just wanted someplace decent and convenient for the last two nights. That gave us one day to see Cancun which was more than enough for us. The Alux is only a block away from the main bus station which made it easy to get to the hotel and easy to get... More

For a mere 410 pesos ($20 each for a 2-double bed room), Hotel Alux was an amazing deal. We booked it because it is one block from the bus station and we had to be on a 4:30 a.m. shuttle to the airport the next morning. Our room (#408) at Hotel Alux was basic but was very clean, had a... More

Well, what can you expect for $35? I suppose the room was clean enough even though it gives you that 'dirty' feeling. The A/C was loud which I loved because it drowned out the outside noise while we slept. We had a TV and there was even a computer that offered free internet near the lobby which was nice. It...

Stayed here again for one night this week, for the second time. Basically this confirmed my previous experience, that this is a tired looking yet clean and comfortable property, offering good value in a convenient downtown location. Once again the hotel responded promptly and clearly to my emails, and provided what they advertise.

I stayed in Alux Cancun with a friend for four nights in February 2008. It was nothing special, but good value for money. Both the room and the bathroom were clean and nice. The beds were comfortable and the room was quiet. The only minus was that we only had a tiny window, so the room was dark. But if... More

This review is for the Hotel Alux in Playa del Carmen, not Cancun. Alux is an excellent budget choice. We were there the week between Christmas and New Years for 7 nights. All the other hotels in town had raised their rates substantially. Alux was $55 per night. Great location, very friendly staff (no English spoken), very clean, comfy bed,... More
