I had originally booked another hotel nearby (Hotel Geneve), but it appeared to have forgotten by its owner when I reached there in the evening, and I was told to go to this nearby hotel instead. I was relieved to know that there was a vacancy, obviously, even though it would have been cheaper if booked online beforehand (but still reasonably priced).
The room seemed to have been refurbished recently, the bathroom was sparkling and spacious, there was also a TV, which I had not expected. I had a triple room to myself!
The night receptionist/barman was very friendly and helpful despite his little English. The modestly-priced bar was open even after the famous candle procession in the Sanctuary, therefore I could mingle with other pilgrimages at the bar, brilliant! (I know there is no receptionists after 8pm at other small hotels in the area, and so guests have to use PIN to get in; awkward...) The morning receptionist/breakfast waiter spoke English and very friendly, too.
This is within a walking distance of both the railway station and the Sanctuary, very conveniently located. I will definitely recommend this hotel to my friends(^_^)
