This was our second stay in a monastery during our trip and we knew what to expect. The Notre Dame de l’Abbaye provides very basic accommodation at a great price – as one would expect from a monastery! People at the reception were very helpful and we did not have any issue during our stay. Our room was somewhat small,... More

This hostel, well hostel really, has received some pretty bad reviews, but as someone else has said they are obviously expecting the Hilton on the cheap. It is amazingly situated just under the walls of the Cite which is what Carcassonne is really all about. We had a room with wardrobe and washbasin, with toilet and shower facilities at the... More

Only thing going for this is the location, our room did have a great view of the old Citadel and within easy walking distance of the local bars and restaurants. Car Parking on site which is only 3 euros per night which was also good. Bathroom very small (and we are not large people) - only 1 set of towels... More

I read the reviews about this hostel on here, and was a bit apprehensive about staying there. Well, they are full of it. They are obviously expecting the Hilton for €18 a night. First of all, the location was amazing. You could walk to La Cité in not even five minutes. You could stay out late no problem, as they... More

I stayed here for three nights. It's not your typical hostel, which is both good and bad depending on what you're looking for.  Good: rooms are cleaned and beds are made (and possibly sheets changed) every day. I didn't eat the food but my roommate said it was tasty and good value. Never had to wait for a shower or... More

I agree with others that the only good thing this has going for it is the location. It is not worth 23 euros!! It is not worth 5! The worst bed I have ever slept in, the sheets were clean but the rest of the room wasn't. The communal bathrooms reeked of urine even after they were cleaned. The shower... More

At 23 euro for a twin room with a flash deal, it would seem impossible to say that it wasn't worth the money. But it wasn't. The monastery has a great location right outside the fortress wall, but that's about all it has going for it. We arrived around 2:30 and were told we could not access our private room... More

This is a former abbey, so the rooms are very small. The first night we were disturbed by folks checking in and squeaking doors until 1:30 in the morning. The next morning we asked for a different room and oil for the door and all was taken care of promptly. Breakfast buffet was very good for 5E. The morning of... More

We stayed here for one night after staying 2 nights in a b&b. It was interesting, but as expected the rooms and breakfast were Very basic- but clean. Very close to the Cite - we enjoyed watching an amazing thunderstorm. If i just wanted a bed for the night, (don't get the breakfast ) then it is excellent value and... More

Nice hotel in converted abbey in the shadows of the old Carcassonne city walls. The location is the best asset of the hotel. My single room had a tiny hard bed and the smallest bathroom I have ever seem, I have been to Japan 3 times!!
