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...

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...

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...

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,...

In downtown Cancun, there are many places to stay near the bus station. Hotel Alux is my favorite. Medium-low price ($30. single), clean, friendly service. Somewhat old, but new mattresses and magnetic locks within the last year. TV and AC. The main drawback is the stairs, for this hotel goes up, not out. Location, convenience, price, and service make it...

I was looking for somewhere to stay for my last night in Mexico before a very early flight out of Cancun the following morning. I contacted several small hotels in downtown Cancun, the Alux was the only one to respond, and I made my reservation. Their correspondence was always quick and businesslike. I was quite happy with the hotel -...
