Stayed here for two weeks. Had to change the room after two nights because of the smell of mould and room had no balcony no view, dark, could hardly open the window, no space for that because of the other building so close. Room was cleaned every day and towels and sheets changed. Hot water on & off, sometimes had... More

Looks a little different from the outside, doesn't look like a hotel at all. But the rooms are pretty good. Clean, good shower. Staff was pretty helpful and nice. It's about a 5 min walk from Coco Bongo's (night club), and all the other main clubs and bars. All the main nightlife is within 5 min's walking. There are a... More

Found this hotel by accident when I was picking up my car rental. Booked it in my phone and paid only half (44 USD) of what the hotel rates are if you book directly in the hotel. Love the location, 2 blocks away from the nightclubs, restaurants, and tourist hangeouts. The ocean is about 4 blocks away, but seems closer... More

Stayed at Hotel Alux at the beginning and end of our recent anniversary trip to MX. It is very clean, the staff friendly and helpful, and a bargain price! It is very close walking distance to beach and 5th Ave activities but quiet at night. We were also able to walk from and to main bus stop and Collectivo stop... More

I spent a night here with a few cycling friends while we regrouped before our cycling adventure around this part of Mexico and Belize. The hotel was nice and clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. They allowed us space to assemble our bikes and also allowed us to keep our bikes safely in our rooms over night. They... More

This hotel is not the best, but ok. They bring they're children to work everyday, and its many of them. Hotel closes down at 23:00 every night so you have to knock on the door if you are coming home "late". The staff is not the best. We traveled with a travel agency from norway (star tour) on a cheap... More

We were happy with the one night stay overall. We got the special rate of $35 a night. The room was clean but the water doesn't get very warm in the shower. We had a quiet night and near 5 Ave. and that's what we wanted. I appreciated that they had filtered water available to fill up our bottles.
