I'm sorry to report that I was quite disappointed with this hotel. As another reviewer noted, it's "a mixed bag". And that couldn't be more true. I chose this hotel (using TripAdvisor, of course) for the view to the medieval walled city (Cite). To even make this request, I visited their weak website - which should have been my first... More

Read a lot of reviews on the hotel before we left so we were not expecting much. Arrived at approx 11:30 am to find the front door locked. Rang the bell and waited for a hotel employee to let us in. We were allocated room 3 on the first floor. The room was very basic with a small table, a... More

I had not looked up trip advisor before I visited this Hotel. The state of the bowl of fruit on display in the breakfast room says it all: fly blown, shrivelled, dusty. I would ask why the proprietor allows such ungracious lads to be at the front ,when a weary cyclist arrives. HAD I THE ENERGY I WOULD HAVE GONE... More

This hotel is a mixed bag. It's an old French family hotel, and the rooms are about what one would expect: okay, not fancy, a bit run down by this point but certainly clean and comfortable enough. The breakfast was surprisingly good and varied for a French family hotel, however, with breakfast meats and eggs and a wide variety of... More

Yes this Hotel is a bit run down but it is clean and is positioned in a perfect place to explore Carcassonne. We had a family room which slept 4 and it suited us perfectly. The terrace has a perfect view of Le Cite.We did not have breakfast or use the parking.

There must be a big difference between Italian and French standards to classify a 2 stars' hotel! In Italy for sure this one would be a hostel. Once we arrived we tried to call to ask where to park...and after various minutes somebody replied...finally. While at the Hostel (sorry Hotel) we couldn't get in because the door was closed!!! at...

The hotel seems to trade in its location and a one night turnover. Sadly if refurbished it would be a great place to stay. However the wall light fittings in my room were broken and just hanging above the bed, there were odd bulbs in the main light and one was broken, the radiator in the bathroom was rusty and... More

Room nine was very poor, bad decor, awful bathroom with tiolet seat not fixed and basin plug broken. It was a depressing experience with no views of anything from the window, no helpfull staff and no-one on reception most of the time. The bed was clean which was the high point. Give this hotel a miss and go elsewhere. I... More

If you want an authentic french hotel you can't go past this one. Add to this the amazing view from room 19, helpful staff and plentiful breakfast in cosy surroundings. Would strongly recommend a visit. Kate and Susan Australia

Stayed in recommended room 18. The view is fantastic and in this old property did feel very fairytale-like. Bathroom could do with a bit of attention (just a bit old) but everything was clean and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was brill.
