Great location, a two minute walk to Cité de Carcassonne, the fortified city in Carcassonne Southern France. Upon arrival (by car) I was a little disappointed with the parking situation, the parking lot is very small and difficult to maneuver in and out of the stalls. Because the parking lot is so small it makes it tough to load and... More

The Mercure suited our trip when we booked and we got exactly what we wanted: Hotel is perfectly located (with free car park if you have a vehicle with you) right outside the cité gate and very close to all major roads in and out of Carcassonne if you want to venture further this beautiful region. Rooms are as expected... More

A very nice hotel, conveniently located next to the Mediaeval city. Welcoming, friendly and helpful staff. Good restaurant and good value. Excellent location for cycling along the Canal during Midi once you come to terms with cycling the wrong way down one way streets which is the designated cycle route.

We stayed two nights, the Old Fortress is five minute walk away and we did it three times, the food options are excellent. The hotel is as rated and the staff delightful to work with. We got a guided tour of the wineries and that was also great.

This hotel is is an ideal location and it was a short 5 min walk across a carpark to the the Cite. The room was small, but bright and comfortable. The staff spoke good English and were very helpful. The wifi worked well and the onsite parking was handy. We requested a room with a view of La Cite and... More

Just outside the fortress walls. We walked - uphill - to the drawbridge at Norbonne Gate in less than 10 minutes. Nice European hotel. Rooms well appointed. Everything works. Very clean. Our room is not large but noticeably bigger than Paris or London hotels. Pool is large but not open yet. Hotel has its own restaurant. We didn't eat there.... More

We were travelling by car so it was useful to stay somewhere very close to the Cité but not actually in it. This hotel was very conveniently sited 5-10 minutes walk away with the bonus of a great view from our bedroom on the 2nd floor. The room was fairly small but very clean and well thought out and with... More

Very convenient for Carcassone where we were meeting friends. Rooms a little tired but clean and bathrooms tidy and with everything. The restaurant meal was excellent in the evening and the staff made my husbands birthday a treat with the unexpected fireworks!

My students actually cried touching the walls of this fortress! It's beautiful charming affordable shops. You have to order a cassoulet for lunch and share it just wonderful! People are friendly. Bathrooms in restaurants are better than porta potties
