The first Hotel we checked in was not Hotel Marial. But, we were very, very unhappy with Hotel de Rome, Lourdes France that after consuming our 2 days paid booked rooms, we hurriedly search for a better hotel & good we found Hotel Marial. Marial is not a new hotel, nothing fancy but the staff are very attentive to our needs & friendly. They could speak English unlike the staff of Hotel de Rome. The good thing about no language barrier is: 1. they were able to help us book what tours we like; they could share us how to get to different places & we could exchange thoughts & pleasantries! 2. We can understand each other well w/o much ado 3. The hotel attracts other guest who can only communicate in English & knows no French or any other language.
Marial rooms - yes, are old but clean. Hotel housekeeping clean & made our beds daily during our 3days stay. we were 3 & was given a room with 3 comfortable beds at the 2nd floor. The hotel has a balcony were I could see people walking to the grotto, & it is few steps away, just across the cheapest shop were I found the cheapest souvenirs! I got 3dozens of rose-scented rosaries at o.40cents (in euro cents); & others. At night the staff joined us to the procession. And, the rooms are cheap & accepts credit card. No breakfast being served in the hotel but the staff taught us where to get good food at a very affordable price & were allowed to take it to our room & eat. The staff lend us the complete dining utensils, plates,cups, thermos for our tea, coffee! at no extra cost! Because we bought cooked food in one of the markets (walking distance) that really delicious & palatable. We were able to have a good trip, a good tour & stay at a good price & so we were able to buy more souvenirs from the money that we were able to save!!!
