“Hotel on a great location”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, over new year's. Everything was ok, the room was clean, bathroom too. After reading the rewiews on trip advisor we were a bit terrified and expected the worst from this hotel but were pleasantly surprised with it. It' s location is perfect, near train, bus and metro station, with nice staff and quite good rooms. If you just need a place to sleep over this little hotel is quite good.

After reading all the things they were almost all bad, about the lux hotel, me and my girlfriend went there for a vacation this NY and expected the worst hotel ever, like everybody had writed. And the we ve stumbled at great hotel, great staff, room and neighborhood.
Neighborhood is ok as well as the position of the hotel..the hotel is near bus stops and metro station and stazione termini where all the buses and metro go through.(it seemed to me that terminio isn't so safe place to walk through during the night. although there are lots of walking there).
Rooms were clean, 7 towels were there and every day we received clean towels.
We had AC(for hot or cold air depends on when you are there) that was working great, small lcd tv, safe and fridge. Everything was tip top great, and the staff speak english and were very helpful when we needed something.
Breakfast was great as well. You can choose from croissant, cereals, milk, tea, juice,coffee,salami,cheese,rolls, toast,yogurt,fruit,fruit salate and other things, and when they ran out of something they immediately brought new one.
Only flaw was that hotel didnt have wifi, view from our rooms wasnt so great and the rooms were not so big.
We were in the room 114 if that helps someone.
And if I/we will return to Rome, i/we will go in the Lux hotel again surely.

Room Tip: We were in room 114 and everything beside view was excellent.

We stayed in a triple room which comprised of a double and camp bed. Bathroom was bit tatty but plenty if hot water. Room was ok although you couldn't put anything on the floor as it was filthy but bedding was clean and fresh. Breakfast was ok.. Plenty of selection if you was the first in, so would advise as it is a large hotel. We paid €30 a night each so cant complain. Reception staff very helpful.

This hotel was ideal for what we required. It was spotless, our rooms ample for what we required. The staff were extremely helpful and very honest. One of the students left her phone and e book and both were brought down to the foyer within 10 minutes by the friendly chambermaid. The breakfast was good with plenty of variety considering it was a continental breakfast. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to others. Not one of the group had any complaint which was unusual for 28 people, It is very central to the trains, metro etc. I would definitely have no problem staying their again. The only thing missing was a bar. We were an adult group.

Room Tip: all our rooms were super

I was on a recent school trip in February 2013 to Rome and read the reviews of this hotel and was really worried. Pupils also read them and were very anxious as were their parents I have no doubt.
This hotel was completely fine. It was central and quite close to Termini station, the rooms were not cramped even with four beds in some, clean towels were left in the bathrooms daily, there was a communal seating area in the lobby, the breakfast would not get an award but was adequate for our needs, and there were safes in each room.
We would have loved a kettle in our room to be able to make a coffee but that was not supplied.

I stayed here in the end of September/beginning of October 2012. This hotel is nothing fancy, but it was clean, the staff was friendly and my bed was comfortable. The breakfast was good and included assorted pastries, meat and cheese, fruit, juices and coffee. The staff at the front desk was friendly, but as I was with a group and a guide, I did not have much need to soeak with them. The hotel is approximately a 10 minute walk to the Termini station so there is easy access to the subway and bus lines as well as, obviously, the trains. There is a lot of hotels in this area so there is quite a few decent restaurants in the area. There is also shopping available on Via Nazionale and various other places.
My room was quite small, but as I was only in there to sleep, it wasn't much of a problem (and other people in my group all seemed to have larger rooms). Our 2 twin beds were practically touching each other and I still had barely enough room to open my suitcase up between the bed and the wall. Our bathroom was okay, but the shower was really small.

I stayed in hotel Lux with a school group last week. The hotel is certainly no 4-star hotel, but the fierce criticisms on the internet are grossly exaggerated. The rooms were OK, the staff was quite friendly, rooms were cleaned, there were ample clean towels, and breakfast was more than satisfactory. The hotel was in a quiet side-street, and a 10-minutes' walk from Termini. All-in-all. we had a pleasant stay at Hotel Lux.
