Had a room on 7th floor (elevator available). Two beds, flat screen, lan 8dont used), telephone, wardrobe with hangers, baggage carrier, huge window and terrace door ( to a former balcony that is more or less vanished). The bed was firm, but not too. Bathroom with some amenities, tube and shower. Water in quality and quantity was great. Enough space... More

Hotel should be closed during renovation. No air conditioning. Keeping the windows open meant those in adjoining room could enter ours via balcony. We have stayed in much better hotels in Slovakia for much less money.

I stayed in this hotel at the end of march for one night since I was participating in a cooking competition which took place at the hotel next day. I arrived with a taxi I took from the bus station.....It was very cheap! Only 2 €! The hotel is well situated.....Close to the main bus station in Banská Bystrica and... More

This is my second stay in Lux. It is situated in an excellent location for visiting Banska Bistrica. Right near the impressive museum and 5 minutes from the lovely center. Rooms are nice, so is breakfast.

Hotel is in refurbishment. The floors 4 to seven present themselves already in the new outfit. Floors 8 to 15 are still in the status of renovation. Service in the restaurant is very good. People at reception are very friendly and helpful with informations. Staff speaks english and/or german.

After looking down South Slovakia for 500 kilometers for some decent place where to sleep, we got to this very tall building, Russian style, a little bit oldie. The first impression wasn't positive. But, we were already exhausted to death to keep looking for a room and, after seeing the room, we decide to stay. The room, requested the best... More

Hotel, built a decades ago, has a big potential due to its location. building and facilities are really out of present, everything looks so old, faded, shabby and really need to be renew. Rooms are very simple, same with the common areas. But to be honest I have to say their staff is very kind, attentive and smiling - something... More

Located on a square where there used to be a statue of Lenin. The square has never recovered after the statue's removal but there is great view to the Slovak Uprising Museum. The lobby and the common areas look fine - the ladies at reception were very friendly and efficient. We stayed in a family room which at a price... More

I stayed in this hotel for only one night as part of a car trip through Slovakia with my husband and 2 children. The outside is plain and the inside is in need of updating so on first appearance we weren't sure how our stay would be. As it turns out, the front reception was friendly and went out of... More
