Looked like it was recently remodeled, and they did a good job, but the rooms are miniscule. No space for two suitcases, one had to be stored halfway into the closet which limited access to the desk area. While the bathroom was compactly and nicely remodeled, there was no ( like most French hotels) shower curtain or glass, so water... More

The only thing this hotel has in its favour is its fantastic location. Convenient for the Cite & chateau which are a short walk just up the street. The main problem for us was the size of the rooms which are tiny. For the sake of a couple of metres, they have ruined what is a perfectly good hotel. The... More

Being no more than a few minute walk up to the main attraction in Carcassonne, this comfortable budget hotel proved perfect for our needs. Sure, there are two other hotels which are closer - if a couple of hundred yards is important to you - but substantially dearer. Parking was free and convenient; we were able to relax and have...

The hotel is perfectly located for visiting the old city, with good parking and a short walk to the Porte Narbonnais. As commented by other reviewers, the rooms are well equipped, clean, functional but very space efficient. If you struggle in coach class then you will find the shower claustrophobic. Some North Americans will get stuck in the shower! Also... More

The hotel is good and the location is great! The room is very small but it`s all you need for a good night of sleep. It`s clean and the bed is great. The only problem was that the air conditioning was not working (and it was really hot). We tried everything but it would not work. The other BIG problem... More

Just finishing a 2 night stay at Espace Cite. Location for the medieval cite is perfect, about 3 mins walk. Also about 20 mins bus ride to airport, and about 10 mins bus ride into the center of Carcassonne. As for the hotel itself, really friendly & very helpful staff. The rooms are very small- but, also very well designed,... More

We go to Carcassonne every year and this was our third stay at this hotel. In previous years we have been satisfied, the rooms are quite small for the price but well appointed with a clever use of space. The service is normally good, it appears to be a family run hotel with MOST staff presenting as friendly and trying... More

The hotel is five minute walking from the unique medieval gate of the fortified town and our room had a window overlooking all the ancient walls and towers, which are very impressive both in the morning and in the evening. The room was rather narrow, but very well planned to fit all the usual furniture; an effective ventilation system assures... More
