“2nd stay here...wonderful management!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

This was my 2nd stay at Astoria Vatican within a year but this time I went with friends. The first time I stayed here with family. The management staff were all, just wonderful. Andrew, Frances, Bruno and all were very friendly and very attentive to our needs. All spoke English so communication was not an issue.

During the 4 nights we were there, it rained only one late afternoon into the evening. The staff suggested that we eat dinner at the hotel because it was raining quite hard. The dinner food was served family style and was quite good. When one of my friends couldn't eat the main entree, the kitchen served a special meal to accommodate her. We paid extra for breakfast each morning. The coffee could've been hotter but was still very good. The breakfast food was the same each day but good enough to start the day of activities.

The hotel was centrally located and a short, downhill walk to the sanctuary. I would definitely stay at this hotel again in the future and would recommend it to my friends.

Room Tip: When booking rooms at this hotel, request rooms towards the back of the hotel on the higher levels...

Stayed here in the Astoria Vatican for two nights in August. Firstly we arrived late and dinner was kept for us which was lovely. The rooms were not overly big but they were cosy, comfortable and clean. The overall atmosphere in the hotel was very pleasant and the staff were very friendly. Secondly, the view from the back of the hotel from our windows was one of typical french architecture. Colourful and busy with the stunning Perenees Mountains for a backdrop. Waking up to the view of the mountains and blue skies knowing you are in a hotel as friendly as this was like being practically home away from home. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they looked after us extreemly well. We were given maps and guidance to all of the ameanities in the area. The hotel itself is very central to everything and makes for an easy stroll to the Sanctuary. Wi-fi was not available in the rooms but was available in reception where the password was given to you. It advertises a garage for your car but in reality, it can only hold up to four small cars or three larger ones. Parking can be an issue here if travelling this way. I can't say enough about this hotel. We all took home with us some very special memories of this hotel and its friendly ambience and it truely is a special hotel in a very special location. Going back there again for sure...

Room Tip: Rooms with a view to the back, rooms with a view to a busy street that never seems to sleep to the f...

The location of the hotel was very central and the room was quite comfortable. It was cleaned on a daily basis. I was very surprised with the staff being so friendly and helpful. I would stay at this hotel again and recommend it to other people visiting Lourdes, bearing in mind that the majority of people you probably would be going on a pilgrimage and not on holiday.

My room was tiny with a damp smell to it. Bed was narrow Sheets were not changed during 4 nights I stayed there. I spilt wine at dinner and same tablecloth was waiting for me at breakfast! Shower area small and only soap and a small sachet of shower gel available. Food was satisfactory and location good.

Room Tip: Make sure your room is a comfortable size.

We stayed here for 2 nights to visit the church there.. the hotel was awesome, lovely and great what more i can say??.. as we entered the hotel the staff gave us the room card and asked us.. is this your first visit to Lourdes and we said yes then she gave us Map and said the timings for Grotto and Holy bath the candle walk at night everything they were very very helpful.. Rooms were very clean very big.. as we went out to visit the church and came back a bit late and asked the staff for dinner she came along with us to the dining area and made us sit helped us and she went back.. the leaving day we asked them for taxi and they booked and even gave us a call to our room after the taxi arrived to the hotel.. this hotel is only few minutes walk to the Church.. the only thing there is no WiFi in our rooms you have to come down and use it in the reception area.. as we cannot sit there for a long time its a bit inconvenient.. except this we had a great stay..

Room Tip: 220 2nd floor

I stayed here as part of a group tour to visit Lourdes. The entrance is small tucked in between many shops, but it is a really big hotel with comfortable rooms. What I like most about the hotel is its central location. It is walk able distance from the central attraction of the location - the church. There are plenty of shops and restaurants around. The shop owner lady of the shop by the entrance of the hotel gave us discounts for the purchases without demanding. The river that flows close by and the view of the fort on the mountain are fabulous. Be cautious as you rush out of the relatively narrow entrance of the hotel as the street is very busy during the day.

Room Tip: Being a combination of new and old blocks, some rooms are very spacious, while some are small with c...

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.
