    MOST RECOMMENDED HOTEL we have ever stayed.


    We are surprised that in the lists of hotels in VT's Lourdes, France accommodation, this particular hotel was not listed, perhaps we did not see it also, or was missed.
    The name of the accommodation is: RESIDENCE SAINT JEAN LOURDES.
    My wife and I come to Lourdes at least 3 times a year, either we do volunteer work at the hospital, accompany friends or friends coming from Barcelona or just do our private personal pilgrimage to Lourdes, France. We have stayed at hotels, 5 star hotels in Lourdes, or even just regular accommodation done by private nuns. Average we spend on our accommodation was between 90 euros AND 50 euros. So last October 2012, we just walked in and checked in at the most recommended accommodation. It is called "RESIDENCE SAINT JEAN LOURDES. The complete address is: 1, Avenue du Paradis, 65100 Lourdes. The telef: +33 5 62 46 30 07, their fax: +33 5 62 42 56 95. EMAIL: There are many reasons why we would recommend this hotel. First of all, it is about 5 short easy walking distance to the main Santuario entrance. It's customary when an accommodation is called "residence", it means, you have a complete kitchenette. Yes, it has all that, 2 small electric stove, wherein you are able to prepare your meals, complete set of pots and pan, a regular size Microwave oven, and right underneath is your small refrigirator.
    It has an efficient wifi, however, you can only surf or use the hotel's wifi by the dinning room, NOT IN YOUR BEDROOM.
    Of-course, at this "residence", they too offer breakfast which is from 6am till 10am which is pretty much straight forward breakfast which we can somehow called "continental breakfast"...which would be coffee, hot chocolate, one good size of crousson, or pieces of freshly baked baquette, jelly, honey, jam and fresh butter. They too will offer you at no extra charge some pastries. The dinning room is always kept clean and very welcoming.
    We met and had a good chat with one of the manager, his name is Fadil Caravaku, very helpful indeed.
    Another news we can tell you is that this "residence Saint Jean Lourdes, the bedroom they assigned us to has a small patio and it even has a cute round table wherein you can enjoy your personal breakfast.
    We stayed at this accommodation for 7 complete nights. Every single day the maids would come and fix your linnens, give you fresh smelling clean towels, shampoo as well as body soap.
    As we said, if your handicap, do not worry as the accommodation is well equipped for handicapped visitors.
    The costs per night was 60 euros for the room for my wife and myself.
    As you know there is really no perfect accommodation, no matter where you booked....the only thing they locked was free parking, so, what we did was to bring our vehicle at a free parking lot which was about 20 minutes walk which is located towards the exit out of Lourdes, or in short, close enough to the freeway. Other than that, all was perfect at this accommodation and we shall return to this same accommodation for the year 2013 and we shall recoommend it to friends and relatives.

    Unique Quality: 1. It is about 5 easy walking distance to the main entrance of the Santuary.
    2. The costs was only 60 EUROS per night.
    3. It has an effecient kitchenette (they give you complete kitchen utilities, pots and pans, silverwares, cups, plates, bowls and if you need more, they will be happy to pitch in more for your comfort.
    4. Bedsheets (linnens) were constantly changed. Towels were always clean. Good supplies of shampoos, face soup). It even has an effiecient hair dryer.
    5. The employees , we find them very helpful and speaks excellent English and Spanish.
    6. WIFI was always efficient, except that NO WIFI IN YOUR BEDROOMS...this is very normal for all the accommodations in Lourdes, you only have WIFI by the dinning room or receiving room downstairs where you check in or check out.
    God Bless YOU.!!

    Directions: MAIN street in Lourdes 5 minutes walk to the main SANTUARIO.

    This has been a blessed year for us. Our wish happened that we would return to Lourdes in a matter of 7 months. Normally we would stay at any of those B&B, however, we were fortunate to have booked our 8 nights stay at Residence St. Jean which is located at 1 Avenue du Paris, 65100 Lourdes. My wife and I had an average size bedroom, with a king size bed, and overlooking the main street which was Blvd. de Grotte. What we loved best is that the bedroom comes with a small handy kitchenette, a regular size microwave, two regular stoves, for your meals and a pretty good size refrigerator.
    Oh! we almost forgot to mention. We booked through and it costs us 40 EUROS per night for the room, unlike other hotels/residencias/ they charge per person, but this Residencia Saint Jean, they charge by the room. Each day costs us 40 Euros.
    Now, if you do not feel like preparing your breakfast in your bedroom, then they do have breakfast from 7 am till 10 am, which is basic continental breakfast which entails: bread/ muffins, coffee, jelly and for your drink, you either have coffee, tea or hot chocolate.

    Unique Quality: This Hotel/Residencial has good connection with the internet service, however, the internet is only good anywhere on the first floor. They do have comfortable lounch by the dinning room as well as the front desk.
    The hotel staff are helpful and have many good suggestions specially for the first time visitors.

    Directions: about 5 minutes walk to the main Santuary.

Travel Tips for Lourdes


by roeldc

From the middle of the 19th century, Lourdes has been one of the most famous Marian sanctuaries in the world. Three churches have been built above the cave where the Virgin Mary appeared, they are the Crypt, the Basilica of the Rosary, and the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. To the west of the cave are the pools for the infirm, to the east the springs of miraculous water. The underground Basilica of Saint Pius X can hold thirty thousand people and the Way of the Cross is built on the mountain.
