Ideal hotel for visiting the old town

Good value for money. Not far from the airport. Ideal stopover when going further south. Room well equipped. Beds comfortable but did not like the single duvets.

The hotel is really close to the Cite. In addition, it is also close to the airport shuttle pick up point, which is very convenient, since shuttles go to the airport just in time for your flight. Although I was early for the official check-in, the receptionist made it possible for me to move into my room at once - wonderful, as I had to wake up at 4 am for my flight there and really needed some rest upon arrival. I ended up staying alone in Privilege Double (the one with sofa-bed) room. I tried to catch a glimpse of standard rooms, from what I could see, all rooms are furnished and cleaned to the same standard - the furniture is modern and pleasing to the eye (at leat in my view), and my bathroom was spotless and perfect, with double showers, huge and deep bath tub – much better than at home. :) For me personally, this hotel was a much-wanted relief from my own rented apartment. This is actually a wonder, as hotels usually make me want to go back home. I have notices that some booking sites feature outdated pictures of the hotel, with scary floral duvet covers and floral pattern carpets – that's all is probably in the past, as the hotel is very modern now (or at least the parts of it which I have seen). As far as I understand the hotel layout, many of the privilege rooms face the pool, which is good if you are on the first floor, as you can access the pool via the french window in your room without the need to travel around the corridors. The drawback is of course the amount of noise in sunny weather. Other than that, the overall noise level in the hotel is minimal. So far, this is the best and noise-freest hotel I've ever stayed in. The buffet breakfast was alright, everything fresh and tasty, although the price is quite expensive and if I visit next time, I'll really grab a sandwich or get some crepes in the Cite itself. If you are travelling solo - grab your coffee in the room for free and go for a snack in Cite. :) But, of course, the convenience of breakfast in the hotel and ability to choose might be worth the price. I have also noticed that staff wasn't to eager to replace the missing food, so come early if you want to taste everything (cheeses are usually the first to go :) ) Overall, I would recommend this hotel, would also stay there again if I have to visit Carcassonne once more.

Good experience overall

The location of the hotel is perfect, the rooms are small but spotless and more than adequate with great bathrooms. Its a "no frills" hotel, great breakfast & dining room, with a laid back atmosphere which is good but no one ever asked us at any stage during our 4 days stay if we were happy, or liked it, or needed anything. When we were checking out, they just took the keys off us and moved on to the next person as if we were on a conveyor belt, a bit odd and unfriendly but otherwise a great hotel, at a good price! I would recommend it!

J'ai beaucoup apprécié l'accueil, courtois, à l'écoute. La même chose pour le petit déjeuner, malgré les consignes d'hygiènes liées au Covid, nous avons pu le prendre dans de bonnes conditions, avec un personnel agréable.

Un séjour réussi à Carcassone

Pros: Sa situation, son parking sécurisé, la qualité de l'accueil.
Cons: Le grincement de la porte de la chambre. La réception a pris note pour faire corriger.
Location: Quartier de la Cité Médiévale , Découverte du patrimoine, Bons restaurants et promenade sur le C. du Midi.
Très bonne situation, équipement fort complet, personnel très agréable.

Top Lage

Auf der Durchreise nach Spanien lohnt sich ein Abstecher nach Carcassonne immer. Das Hotel liegt super per Auto erreichbar, eigener, geschlossener Parkplatz: Die Zimmer sind geräumig, sauber und das Preis / Leistungsverhältnis stimmt. Gutes Frühstücksbuffet, sodass gestärkt weiter gereist werden kann. Auch der Aussenpool, ist nach einem Reisetag einfach topp. Die Altstadt ist zu Fuss in ca. 3- 5 Minuten errreichbar, lohnt eine Besichtigung, und das Restaurationsangebot ist riesig.

Super Lage für Besuch der Festung Carcasonne

Wenn man sich vom schlechten Empfang und dem lausigen Service nicht abschrecken lässt (Express Frühstück dauerte 30 min bis der Kaffee kam), dann ist dies ein gutes Hotel für einen Besuch in Carcasonne. Sind Abends die Stadt besuchen gegangen, nur 5min zu Fuss, und war total schön, ohne die Tagestouristen und mit Beleuchtung! Sehr empfehlenswert. Zimmer war klein (wir hatten ein Standard) aber für eine Nacht okei, glücklicherweise haben wir beim checkin noch gemerkt, dass ein Doppelbett hier nur 1.40 m breit ist, was uns als Freunde doch etwas zu eng war, weshalb wir auf zwei Einzelbetten umbuchen konnten.

Das perfekte Hotel

Wir waren nur für eine Nacht in diesem Hotel. (Auf der Durchreise) Wir sind jedoch begeistert und kommen bestimmt wieder. Das Hotel liegt in unmittelbarer Nähe von der Burg. Gratisparkplätze und Swimmingpool. Sehr freundliches Personal. Top ausgestattete Zimmer und sehr moderne Einrichtung. Das Morgenessen war sehr reichhaltig und für die Kinder sogar kostenlos!! Dies sind genügend Argumente um dieses Hotel zu empfehlen und wieder zu kommen. Vielen Dank.
