This hotel is not a four star hotel, it is a skid-row hotel, its small, dirty, and you can hear the rats crawling around at night. The continental buffet consist of just bread and corn flakes. This is the worse hotel I have ever been in, its the scum of all 1 star hotels. If the city of Lourdes ever... More

The price for this hotel was excellent and provided the basic needs for a room. There is no air conditioning, but it cooled down nicely when we opened the window. The room was small, but normal for a European hotel, so no surprises. The bed was comfortable, bathroom normal, and the free wi-fi worked fine. The price of the room... More

Stayed at Hotel Continental last year so had no hesitation booking again and was not disappointed. Very clean and well managed hotel. Our room would not lock, we reported this to the receptionist who put us into a different room and got a member of staff to make the bed into a double. Staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel is...

I stayed at the Continental for two nights while visiting Lourdes and waws very satisfied with my stay there. I had arrived at the Lourdes train station without reservations and walked into the center of town. The Continental was one of a couple of hotels suggested by the Tourist Info Office and I selected it because of it's price which... More

Dear Liz, I guess you came to Lourdes during a Voluntary work (Hospitaliers in Lourdes) so you chose the Continental hotel, which is very close to the Sanctuary. Hope you also enjoyed our availibility and our experience to organise this kind of stay (early breakfast and staggered hours due to your commitment). Please let me advise you that in 2015,... More

The Continental hotel, one of 7 in the Vinalues chain is very comfortable, cozy and warm with a staff that make the hotel what it is! The hotel is superbly located and is very close to the gates of the sanctuary, literally a 3 minute walk at most. But the hotel staff are what makes this place superb....helpful, friendly, smiling...

A great hotel with a great price and great location. We were very busy while and Lourdes and this hotel suited our trip perfectly with great bathroom and shower and very comfortable beds. Only a 2 minute walk to the sanctuaries. Staff were always pleasant and welcoming. Would most definitely book again!
