I spent two nights with my family in Lourdes this past July 2011. I would recommend this hotel. It was clean & a good location, just a 5 minute walk to all the major sites. The staff were very friendly & right away set us up with a map of the area & all the information we needed.
Just be aware that the rooms are sparse. The main common areas are lovely but the actual rooms are more like a dormatory with the hard beds & pillow roll included (which was surprisingly comfy). Also if you need anything like ice or the air conditioning activated you do have to phone the front desk. They are wonderfully accomodating.
The bathroom was very clean & the shower was great!
Breakfast was a disappointment & I would recommend skipping it & grabbing a croisant on the way to the grotto instead (we did the second day).
I also experienced the noisiness that the last reviewer mentioned but not from the buses. At night the bars on the street were filled with people singing loudly & shouting until around 1 am. If I were higher up it might have been better.
Overall, it is one of the best looking places to stay in Lourdes & the staff are so welcoming & helpful that it was a great experience.
