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

After arrival polite receptionists welcomed us in a professional way... rather dry than warm, but OK. Food is good, service decent, rooms clean and spacious.

This is my 2nd stay here ( I am currently in the hotel), purely because I have some work commitments very close by, but the lack of viable alternatives in BB makes this place the only real choice, and I think they know it. Rooms are reasonable but hard beds, and truly awful pillows, they have to firmness in them... More

Stayed one night during a tour of Europe. We booked the Economy Double (perhaps some of the other reviewers took the more expensive rooms) - it was very grim. Metal window frames with paint peeling off. We were on the 10th floor and the balcony had a definite 'sag' and felt unsafe. Note in our room told us to lock... More
