Hotel Alux Cancun
Ranked #151 of 177 Hotels in Cancun
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Hotel Alux was a wonderful place to stay in Cancun city. Around the corner from the main Avenida Tulum - you can catch the collectivo (transport van) to anywhere you want! Special prices for backpackers. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are always clean (I stayed here on 3 separate occasions); wifi works; free drinking water; air conditioner; and comfy bed with nice linens. This hotel is a great deal compared to others in the area. I was a single backpacker and felt at ease here. I will stay here again!

If you need an economical room with few amenities, this is your place. We got the room for 400 pesos a night for 3 nights. The beds were fine for us, and the hot water, air condition, and the WIFI all worked. These rooms will not be profiled on the Travel Channel, but they'll do for a few nights. Located near the ADO bus station.

Room Tip: No restaurant, no pool, no problem!

The room was nice and spacious but dont plan on having to charge anything because there was only 2 electrical outlets in the room and one was taken by the TV. The bathroom was decent. The beds were ok. We were given a room on the fourth floor without an elevator. It is a good location to the bus depot.

As others have indicated, it's not somewhere to stay for a typical Cancun beach vacation, but as it is just a few meters from the ADO bus station, it's great for travelers who are just in town to catch a bus or plane out. We had a room with a window and it was fine--no mosquitoes and sufficiently air-conditioned, even if the unit was rather noisy. We didn't hear much traffic outside, and our window faced over an empty and quiet side-street. There is a supermarket and several restaurants close by. The Zona Hotelera, which includes a few public beaches, is an easy, but several kilmometers long, walk away for the more adventurous. If I need to fly in and out of Cancun, I'd stay here again.

I have been using this hotel for over 15 years during my travels. It is clean, cheap,location for travelers perfect, and nice staff. The price is right. Some rooms have no windows, but when all you want is rest it is fine. I now live in Cozumel and still use the Alux when I have an early flight, late arriving flight, or a medical appointment in Cancun. This is not a hotel just for a tourist's vacation.

Have never had a problem with the AC ot hot water.

I needed a hotel for one night before my departure from Cancun airport. I got a good rate via GalaHotels.com, paying around €23 for a room with a double bed (hard mattress), air conditioning (cooled well but rather noisy), and cable TV (few English stations). The spacious bathroom had towels, bathmat, soap, shampoo, and the water in the shower was nice and hot. There was no breakfast included.

There was quite a bit of audible traffic noise in the street outside, but it didn't prevent me from falling asleep.There is no elevator and my room was on the third floor, which was a bit tough to carry up all my heavy baggage.

There was free cold purified water available on every floor. The two receptionists I met were both friendly. Check-out time was 1:00 pm and there was a little room where I could leave my baggage after checking out. The hotel was conveniently located just a couple minutes walk from the ADO bus station, which has frequent buses to the airport as well as everywhere else you would want to go. There are little supermarkets right across the street from Alux Hotel.

I would recommend this low-budget hotel for a short stay in Cancun when practicality is the most important priority.

Room Tip: I had a room on the street side, which was rather noisy. You might want to request one on the back s...

This place is only good for a night and a really brief stay in Cancun, because it is right next to the bus station. Don't plan for a hot shower - water was hot only one day in four - who knows the next day of hot water may have been another 10 days away ?
The magnetic card for the door kept on decoding day after day - first guess is they failed to change the batteries of the door, or postponed the activity altogether.
Is also one of the few places where credit cards are not accepted and for some reason this has to be yelled at the guests. But, as I said - if you arrive late at night and leave early next morning, might be a reasonable solution.

Thank you for your review. We checked every single shower in the hotel (32 of them) after reading your review. We got hot water from each one. The magnetic cards code change everyday as a protection in case the key is lost. All the guests have to do is to request that the key be activated again.
It is not the guests fault that at the moment we do not accept credit cards. We do inform the guests about this when they arrive and in the case of the reservations, we inform them in advance.
