We stayed for two nights and wished we had booked for longer. The location of the hotel is perfect and the staff were very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was included and they had a good variety of things to choose from however I would probably have tried somewhere different on the second morning had it not been. Our room was... More

I couldn't imagine coming to Carcassonne and not staying within the cite and once I'd looked at the website for this hotel I was won over. The Hotel de la Cite is beautiful both inside and out, very elegant and understated. Our room had a lovely view of the gardens and to our delight there was a bottle of local... More

If you have ever have ever imagined living in a Castle, this is for you. My room was part of an old castle. The window was a bit small which made the room a bit stuffy. The room and bathroom old but very nicely kept up. I noticed that there were nicer rooms with patios. I would get one of... More

Private gardens in rear with picture perfect views of countryside and the castle. Rooms were clean and pleasant. Appropriate for the period although could... More

There is something very special about staying within the ancient walls of Carcassonne, and staying in a luxurious hotel only makes it more special. The rooms are beautifully appointed and comfortable, and the entire places is suffused with elegance and class. The reception staff welcomed us as if we were long-lost family (it was an adventure trying to reach Carcassonne)... More

If you look at the price alone, you'll perhaps give this a miss as there are plenty of other hotels nearby and some cheaper options even within the medieval citadel. However, if you want a near perfect location in Carcasonne, with wonderful views, excellent service and an abundance of character... then this is a great choice. I'm reviewing the hotel... More

Absolutely stunning for its historical setting, we were lucky enough to be in a suite with our two kids and enormous balcony overlooking the walls of the citadel and the city itself, far below. The service was excellent, particularly Amory, who drove us from the car park outside the city walls up to the hotel. We ate in the brasserie,... More

Hotel de la cite is a truly magical place to stay, in the very centre of the medieval city of Carcassonne. The service is superb, driven from outside the city walls to the door of the hotel in your own private mini-transport. We were lucky to be upgraded from a garden room to a junior suite, but we would have... More
