We came across this 3* hotel online and it looked much nicer than some of the other 3* & 4* ones available during our last-minute stay in Lourdes. It was off on a quiet, narrow street away from the busyness of this city, yet close enough to everything, and after walking down the busy main streets near midnight, we were so thankful we booked it rather than another! We initially booked paid parking online, but when we arrived, found a spot right beside the front door that was free. We literally booked a double room about 11 pm, arriving prior to midnight, and when we got to our room realized it was 2 beds together (as often the case in Europe). We asked the front desk if they had a double, and they showed us a larger 2-room space on the bottom level but without the balcony they had originally given us, and let us chose. We realized they upgraded our initial room due to the inability to fulfil our online request of a double bed. We opted for the initial room on the upper floor instead. The beds were very comfortable and the room was quiet--we didn't hear anyone else even though the hotel was almost full. The lobby and eating area is bright and modern, with a small library for those wanting to sit elsewhere to read. The staff was apologetic and very kind! We had slept in and the next morning so we missed breakfast (although we weren't planning on eating there). The owner made us cappuccinos and gave us pastries--at no charge! They also held our luggage while we walked into town (5-10 min walk) for a few hours and helped us plan our route upon our return. It is easy walking distance to the main attractions in town. We absolutely appreciated the friendly staff--they went out of their way to be kind and hospitable. If you need to stay in Lourdes, we think this is the perfect place to stay...any closer to the ''marketplace" and the cathedral and it is highly unlikely you will be able to sleep!
