“How to combine religious atmosphere with comfort”
Reviewed 3 November 2011

Lourdes is not a destination where you go for pleasure. Your trip there is due because your soul needs purification, so no way you look for enjoyments other than religious functions. But, at the end of a long day of concentration in a saint environment you need a break and the Moderne helps you to find a moment of relaxing from so many emotions.
Confortable rooms in an atmosphere "fin de siecle". The breakfast service is very spartan but for eating you have nice restaurant all around, the best is "Alexandra". The reception is very attentive and helpful and the position of the hotel is the nearest to the religious area.
The air of peace and devotion sweeps away any material connection and when you leaves Lourdes you feel content and you include also hotel Moderne in your contentment!

Absolutely fantastic stay. Booked into a single room which was very spacious with a double bed and lovely furnishings and fab modern bathroom. Hotel staff incredibly friendly, particularly on reception and in the bar. Location amazing, five minutes walk from the domain. I have stayed in several hotels in Lourdes, many claming to be four star but rarely earning two star in my book! This is the first one that meets all expectations and earns its star rating. Will definitely stay here again and couldn't recommend it enough.

Room Tip: Rooms 420 and 421 share a balcony so are great for two people travelling together but who like their...

As a frequent visitor to Lourdes, annually since 1996 I can strongly reccomend this Superb Hotel. The bedrooms are both extremely spacious and well fitted, but allowing ample space to move around comfortably. All the doorways are suitable for wheelchairs and in all the bedrooms as well. There are spacious bedrooms and bathrooms (wet rooms) specifically for the disabled, as well as family rooms and inter-connecting rooms. Bathrooms are beautifully appointed with baths with shower attachments, bidet (and sep., Wc.,) in some rooms. However, other rooms do have walk in shower cubicles. Most rooms have juliet balconies and the best views of the Sanctuaries I have seen. The Hotel is kept extremely clean and the furnishings are to a very high standard. All the staff were helpful and go out of their way to help and assist you. Food is served in very elegant dining room and is of a high standard and plenty of choice. No problem with noise as bedrooms are all soundproofed.
Overall I would recommend this Hotel to anybody. The location is also only 50 meters from the Sanctuaries. Open your balcony doors and enjoy the beautiful rendition of the Rosary procession from your armchair.

So many thanks to Joseph and your staff for a wonderful visit and lovely memories. I am looking forward to returning for five nights next April. Merci beaucoup!!

Have stayed at various hotels in Lourdes (13 visits to Lourdes since 1995), and found the rooms at this hotel to be by far the most comfortable and spacious. The room descriptions on their website are accurate. The reception staff is friendly and welcoming.
Would stay here again.

Hotels in Lourdes are generally not to US standards for much beyond basic service that would be equivalent at best to a Holiday Inn Express. This hotel is the exception. It is classic French style both in the interior and exterior decor. The rooms are traditional with furniture that is nice, but somewhat dated, but marble baths. No showers! You're in France! If you're looking for duvets with multiple pillows and a special mattress, you won't find it in Lourdes.However, the staff, particularly the front desk led by Joseph, is outstanding, and will bend over backwards to assist with every request including my need to check out a day earlier than booked. As others have said, location, location, location is everything in this hilly town. If you have any disabled persons in your party look no further. Free wheelchairs are available for use from the hospital behind the hotel. This is my second time to the hotel, and would not stay anywhere else, and I have stayed up the hill. You will hate the walk regardless of your age!

Room Tip: The junior suites are great for a party of three!

The superb baroque façade and the art-nouveau interior take you back to the athmosphere of the early 20th century. Great location (50m from sanctuary) and very friendly staff (from cleaning ladies to reception). Basic breakfast and few sockets in the room. Undermanned (sometimes unmanned) bar.
