it's really a short walk from sncf gare de lourdes!
staff is very friendly! it's a mom-and-pop hotel. and they can converse in english, french, spanish, and german
the room we stayed in has a picture of st. bernadette soubirous. wonder if this is the same for all rooms?
bedroom and bathroom is pretty spacious.
door locks are old-school. you have to lock the doors using the key, even from the inside. there's no separate locking mechanism. also, our bathroom door can't be locked from the inside, so we devised a rule that if there's something hanging on the bathroom doorknob, then someone's inside.
dining area's pretty spacious, but tell them in advance if you're gonna have breakfast there and what food you want.
guests are given a security code for the main entrance. they close in the late morning for cleaning duties.
technically there's wifi, but it's too weak to penetrate rooms. they've provided a netbook near the vending machines, though. but who needs internet in lourdes? you're supposed to pray there, and not update your facebook!
there's vending machines at the 1st floor for snacks and drinks.
there's an elevator! big surprise for a small hotel. ideal for those packing wheelies.
i recommend you stay here.
