Helpful staff at the reception; clean room & bath room.
Sleep interrupted twice by people knocking at the door at night, why- I couldn't find out.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2011

The Astoria Vatican Hotel was centrally located and in walking distance to everywhere we needed to go including the Grotto! I was traveling with family and our rooms were all located on the same floor. Rooms were very clean. The shower water pressure was very strong. The staff were very friendly and very accommodating even with our very late night check-in. The front desk staff all spoke very good English as most were non-French Europeans. Our rental car was too tall to park in their garage so they directed us where to park without risk of being towed. Breakfast was very good. Coffee was excellent! Our room had a great river view and of the Grotto. We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for the Grotto and river view. The other view would be of the interior atrium.

After my nightmare stay in Paris - Hotel Hauteville, journey to lourdes has been holy and extremely relieving .
Our journey to hotel from Station was uneventful , Brad and I kept our fingers crossed hoping we are not yet again dejected with hotel .
To our pleasant surpirse this hotel was way above our expectations.
Spacious room , with a great view to a water fall over looking groto. basic amenities was upto the mark .
The hotel was so strategically located it helped us find all good to see / resturants and touring options in a walking distance .
No complaints on quality of breakfast served . The hotel was equipped with free WIFI in reception area.
I would recommend this hotel to all traveller in lourdes.

We just came back from staying in the Astoria Vactican Hotel in Lourdes.
The Hotel was of very high standard, rooms were spotless and clean towels every day.
Air conditioning in the room was great as the weather was very hot.
We were on the 7th floor and had my mother in law was with us we asked to be kept near her when we booked and they had her on the same floor just 3 doors up which was great.
It is in the heart of Lourdes so you are on the doorstep to everything, The staff were very polite and helpful. Francis is an absoulte gem very cheery and welcoming as was the guy we meet on our arrival.
Our stay in the Astoria was a very pleasnt one and will defentily be back again.

Good value, good staff, clean and very welcoming.

We just came back from our Europe trip and Lourdes is one place we visited. We stayed in Astoria Vatican Hotel for 3 nights and on our first night we lost our SLR Cannon 500 D Camera, 2 cellphones and wallet at around 2am to 5am. The robber climb the terrace which we were sure was locked since we know that we were not from the place.However, the robber managed to open the terrace door and got our things. We asked the help of the staff but to our dismay they told us to report it personally to the police. We were not from the place and we are not familiar of the process. They did not bother assisting us on what to do not even telling us where thepolice station was.

Had booked to stay in the Saint Rose , but could not believe the price, so changed booking to the Astoria, which offered a good rate.
The hotel is situated in an ideal location, approx 5 minutes walk to the domain and the grotto, and 5-10 minutes to Lourdes town (market, etc).It is opposite the Poor Clare's so if your room faced out onto the road and convent you can hear the bells which are rung quite early on a morning, and the delivery lorries which leave their engines running.
The hotel staff especially Andrew, Dominic and the Lovely Irish lady on reception could not have been more helpful and friendly.
The room we stayed in a triple was large and very clean. We were on the 5th floor which had wonderful views, we heard no noise from the hotel although as expected in Lourdes you could here some noise from the bars and other hotels if you had the windows open.
We have stayed in many hotels in Lourdes as we visit 2 or more times a year and would recommend this hotel to our family and friends and will stay here again.
