              • Older travelers

                As my visit to Carcassone was mainly to visit the castle, its postion some 300 metres from the castle's rear entrance was very useful. The hotel staff were very helpful, especially when they were able to find us an alternative room away from the main road. The room was actually a studio apartment with a kitchenette with views of the castle. We didn't eat at the hotel but there are plenty of restaurants nearby. We stayed for two nights and was extremely good value for money and we would definitely go back.

                The rooms to front of the hotel run adjacent to a fairly busy road - day and night - so it wouldn't really be possible to sleep with the windows open due to the noise. The hotel does have its own underground car park but with limited spaces so parking could be difficult especially at peak times of the year.

                In amazing location, right next to the old city. Hotel staff were lovely and helpful. The room was excellent value for money.

                The friendly staffs

                Unkempt, dirty, no thoughts given to comfort at all. Bathroom was smelly, kitchen has no kettle to boil water, no dish cleaner, utencils were greasy, etc.

                Perfect location just outside the medieval city of Carcassone. Welcoming staff and nice apartments. Will definately go back with my family.

                the location and quietness

                rundown furnishing, kitchen not appropriate for self-catering (lots of missing forks, knifes, plates, etc) and dirty, parking had a height limit (not mentioned!)

                Friendly staff, clean and spacious apartments. Great location for La Cite - the walled castle.

                The bed was as hard as concrete - I had to use the mattress from the futon on top of the mattress on the bed to become even remotely comfortable. There wasn't a kettle in the room, which was strange given that it had a kitchen area.

                Very close to the city, very kind people, jacuzzi, room not so bad, just what you need!

                The cleaning maid never came in 5 days!

                very convenient to walk to the old Cite

                Apartment rooms very large but a waste of space in main living room. All-round rather basic.

                Parking available on the street outside. Good location for accessing the old city. Wifi works well.

                The receptionist wasn't always around even during advertised opening times. The room is very basic. Our room was ground floor facing onto the road so I didn't want to open the curtains/windows to let some natural light and air in.

                location, price, staff, breakfast

                there was a stale or musty smell in our room and the passage outside. - perhaps they've fixed it, maybe it was a water leak that made their carpet mouldy

                We were so surprised to find a wonderful place like this and so very close to the castle walls. Literally from our windows we could see the castle and it was pretty amazing at night to see it all lit up and to watch the bats was lovely. It only took us 5 mins to walk up the path to the castle gates. The apartment itself was pretty good, we were surprised at its size. You even got a bath which is very rare. Parking was good and for a small fee, we were able to put it in a secure underground carpark. Wifi was good.

                The only bad point if any is there was no breakfast, but it was self catering.

                Nice staff, good breakfast. Very good idea with night checkin.

                Our room was more like a modestly equipped flat (small studio) without any climate than a hotel room.

                • Average rating
              • Family with children

                Our experience with this hotel was very positive. The location is quite perfect - you just need to follow not-so-traveled road behind the residential houses (try to follow the main road down to the first crossroad and go up to the castle from there) and you will reach the castle entrance in about 5 minutes. The staff was friendly and competent. The room surprised us most - it was really very spacious with two levels and the stairway in between - and very sunny. Also, for our family stay the presence of the real kitchen with a microwave was a great plus - it allowed us to use this place less as an usual hotel but more as the apartments-style housing.

                The only small quirk as the others said here was that the toilet and the bathroom with a sink were on different levels, but for us, it was even some kind of funny and did not spoil our experience at all.

              • Family with children

                This was a late booking only the day before and we chose the hotel for the location, which was excellent at the foot of the old town, accessed via a cobbled path, and the proce which was only €63 for the night for accomodation for a family of four. The town itself did not disappoint from the marvellous castle and views, the suprisingly abundant restaurants in Le Cite and the new town which was a nice change also. Our 2 children enjoyed the park across the road from the back of the hotel.

                The welcome was friendly at the hotel althought unusual to be compeltely clsoed until 3pm and so we headed to the old cit sooner than we had imagined. The duplex room was clean and had a comfortable main bed. The main living/dinign room was very basic however and the sloping sofa bed was the only sofa in the room and so not not a room that encouraged you to spend much time there. The kitchen area was again clean but basic, with no cups available.

                The convenience for both town and City.

                The accomodation was a little too basic. not a great deal of comfort if one wanted to stay in for the day, but aoart from that, fine.
