“Hotel Lux - Moderate accomodations in Banksa Bystrica”
Reviewed July 9, 2006

The Hotel Lux looks like a communist era building, with little landscaping and few amenities in Banska Bystrica (BB). It is an easy 500 m walk from the bus station, if you arrive in BB by bus. As with other central europe locations, it does not have air conditioning. Check in was pleasant and fast, the clerks spoke excellent English. Our rooms (3 doubles) were on the 12th floor facing the old town and the 1945 Uprising memorial--it was a lovely view! The carpeting in the rooms is from the 70's but the rest of the room was fine--furnished in Danish style and the beds were clean and comfortable. The balcony was nice to walk out on to watch the sunset. The bathroom was small but adequate, with a handheld shower. A single small (and I mean small) piece of soap was the only tolietry amentity in the room. Towels were the quality of a Motel 6. Overall, the room was clean, safe and relatively comfortable, with dated furnishings and lack of amenities we noted in other hotels in central Europe. Try to get a Slovak friend or relative to make the reservation if you can--it cost us 1329skk per room per night ($50) instead of the 70 euros it would have if we had made the reservations ourselves or through a travel agent. Banska Bystrica was lovely, we spend two days there and next time will try to spend more time in the area. Go to Slovakia before they adopt the Euro! It's very inexpensive!
