As a reviewer before me mentioned, one typically visits Lourdes to go to the Sanctuary for religious reasons. And while pious prayer doesn't require one to live like a pauper, it also doesn't mean one should go and live like a prince either.
That being said, I would hands-down recommend this hotel to anyone regardless of purpose of visit because it is absolutely perfect for its price. In fact, it far exceeds in value the price that I paid for it. My three night stay at the economy rate during off-season was a meager 25 euros a night.
Yes, it is basic, but everything that one could possibly require from a hotel is present or available upon request. And again, ask yourself, what the purpose of your visit is exactly. My room was equipped with a very capable heater, desk, and hangars, and the bathroom: a shower with a real powerful stream and hot water.
The hotel is an easy walk from both the train station and the sanctuary, and the town center as well (for some of the more non-pilgrim shops and dining places; French-staple store: Monoprix is up along that stretch and a great spot to grab cheap food/snacks). Because my stay was marked with not particularly pleasant weather, the proximity to everything allowed me to return during the day to dry off and warm up.
I only interacted with one employee, a woman who was very helpful and polite. She spoke super English. Breakfast isn't too bad at 7 euros, and I recommend it should you consider buying any of it on your own outside.
Sure it is very simple, but everything it strives to do, it does successfully and I haven't the slightest of complaints to make. I recommend wholeheartedly and wish you a pleasant visit in Lourdes!
