            My husband and I found the stay at the Best Western Le Donjon to be a very acceptable experience.

            The hotel was in a superb locationfor taking advantage of Carcassonne City. It had old world charm together with modern facilities and a wonderful garden to take you out of the bustlew of the city.

          • Older travelers

            Staff were very helpful. The hotel and the room were better than I expected - and I did expect quite a high standard based on Booking reports. Room was very comfortable and the location within the walled city made for an interesting and enjoyable stay. Haven't stayed at Best Western that I can recall however based on this experience I will be more than happy to book with them in the future.

            The garden was a tranquil retreat away from the many other tourists.

            We would have enjoyed more choice at breakfast the hot choice for our five day stay was baked egg and sausages every day.

            Wonderful location in centre of a medieval castle, we stayed in a "privilege" room opening onto a lovely quiet garden(an oasis in such a busy spot) The room itself was small and dull, but it had a very comfortable bed and a good sized shower room. Overall we liked the ambiance of the hotel.

            The breakfast was completely self service continental, nothing special.

            Fab location inside the city of Carcassone with a lovely little balcony to relax in the evening.

            The bed was awful - a dip into the middle made for a very uncomfortable night's sleep!

            Location right in the midieval city.

            overnight Parking was tight to get in and dark at the time we accessed it.

            Location could not be more central. Buffet breakfast was first class

            When I booked I was not aware that the hotel occupied several buildings. Our first room, in "Les remparts", was extremely noisy - no sleep till 2.30 am, - but the staff kindly relocated us for our second night to a room in the main unit, which was excellent.

            Location in the old town was really nice, with plenty of restaurants at walking distance. The hotel could also be reached easily with the shuttle from Carcassonne airport.

            Wifi connection was not working but the staff helped with providing access to their own computer.

            The position of the hotel is good - within the walls of the old city. Although the hotel is split across several properties, they are all within easy walking distance.

            The rooms in the 'Remparts' building either face the car park or a square that tends to be noisy at night. Rooms are small. Parking is outside the city walls, and luggage has to be taken to and from the hotel by shuttle, operated by pleasant but overworked staff - be aware that this process this can take 45m.

            Great situation in the old town. Not noicy. We had the very best room concerning the view, the old castle! Ask for room nr 10. Beautiful room in old style. Very comfortable beds!!! Modern bathroom. Fantastic breakfast!

            You must keep in mind that you have to leave the car outside the city walls, but that was no problem. You can make a reservation by contacting the hotel in advance.

            The room was good, clean and big enough.

            When we came to the reception at 14:45 we were told that the room was not ready yet. When it was finally ready the room was in another building 100 meters away, but wi didn't know it until then. I like sparkling water, so I took a bottle of Perrier first from the mini bar. Unfortunately, it had no gas for some reason, the ame story with the second bottle. Maybe it was there for a couple of years already.

            I enjoyed the calm atmosphere of this hotel and the discretion of the staff. It's a unique blend of old and new, not something you see very often these days.

            The reception staff were very helpful, the ambience of the hotel was great. We loved the room we had (no 21) on the ground floor with a courtyard.Being inside the walls of the Carcassone castle and stepping out of the hotel on to the cobblestone streets was a delight.

            The only minor thing to note was that at breakfast, some of the food items (eg Yoghurt and scrambled eggs) that were depleted were either not replaced to took a long time to be replaced.

            It was situated within the city walls, which is what we wanted. Carcassonne is a magical city especially at night!
