Booked the hotel at the last minute and there was a discounted rate offered. However, the confirmation quoted a higher rate. From the moment we entered the hotel the attitude of the lady at reception was one of unhelpfulness. When asked if she spoke English her response was 'do you speak French'? As we explained the situation in broken French... More

Fairly close to old city, and right by downtown. The parking in front is available on weekends and evenings. No elevator, but they will carry your bags up. HOWEVER, they have a big sign in front claiming to have air-conditioning, and there seems to be a system installed, but it just plain didn't work in any of the 3 rooms... More

The couple that run this hotel are just the nicest people you could hope to meet. Despite the communication barrier (their limited English and our poor French), they were extremely helpful and always friendly and upbeat. The room itself (family room) was basic but was clean, comfortable and spacious. The hotel is well located with easy access both to the... More

This is such a gem of a hotel ... Being a hotelier myself I understand people's needs. Claire & Didier from start to finish were very welcoming & even taught me some words in French which I loved!!!! Close to the town centre ... 5 min walk to the train station & a brisk 10/15 walk to the castle. My... More

We spent 2 nights here and found it as walk-in customers. Reasonably priced it is fairly basic but the hotel is clean, well-maintained, if a little bright in colour scheme. The staff don't speak English but they are very kind and helpful. The breakfast was continental and buffet style. It is only a few minutes walk from cafes and restaurants,... More

I'm staying here at the moment and am very pleased with the hotel. I travel alone and the area is fab, safe and really good for the centre and la cite! Room is spacious and clean and the hosts are friendly and unintrusive. The hotel is on a beautiful alley with old trees and if you open the windows you... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the extremely clean and very friendly Hotel Central. Parking conveniently outside, receiving clear and accurate restaurant advice and directions to the Old City ensured we gained maximum benefit from our short visit. A good breakfast is provided and the location could not be better to enjoy both cities! A very pleasant experience.

This hotel is central, clean welcoming & friendly. Breakfast is good and worth having here for the convenience alone. We will return to Carcassonne in September and will stay here again. There is a nice restaurant attached to this hotel. Would recommend this hotel if you don, t intend to spend lots of hours in the room as there are... More

Relaxed and friendly place a couple of minutes from the centre of the low town (Bastide) and about 20 mins walk from the castle area. Simple basic hotel with all necessities. No lift though. Also a 24 hr drinks and snack machine.

Lovely friendly, family run hotel. Breakfast was basic but filling with plenty to choose from. 5 mins walk from the town square with lots of bars and restaurants. 10 mins walk from Canal du Midi and boat trips. Rooms very basic but who wants to stay in their room when in Carcassonne??? No lift so dont bring a heavy case!
