We stayed 1 night in a corner room which measured around 27 square meters. It is located 5 minutes away from the Basilica, grotto, baths and evening procession area. The room was clean and well maintained. The bed was firm and comfortable. It also had a balcony overlooking a pizzeria. A simple buffet continental breakfast was also offered. The only hot items were the eggs (scrambled or sunny side up ).
Beside the hotel were numerous shops selling religious souvenirs and restaurants as well.
A point worth remembering is that most shops and restaurants close before the procession starts at night. Therefore one should take their dinner before the procession. After the procession, there were only a couple of restaurants open in the vicinity after the procession ended.
I would consider staying in this classic hotel again next time I go back to Lourdes for some spiritual recharging.
