This hotel is like going back in time and it has to be the best I have stayed in yet. We found this gem by chance and I for one will never forget the hospitality we received in this fab hotel. The owner was so charming and so helpful -even with my terrible attempt at French. Simone definitely made us... More

From the moment we walked in Simone made us so welcome-we were very early and our room was not ready so we were given a cup of coffee and Simone produced a map and told us what restaraunts to go to and directions. When we returned in the evening there was coffee and biscuits in the room and the breakfast... More

The host Simone is a delight, welcoming and helpful, she only speaks french so its a good opportunity to practice your language skills, supplying a map on arrival of the old cite and tips for the best restaurants - we visited one and were given free drinks for mentioning Cote Cite. The room was beautiful, lovely decor, spotless with stunning... More

We found Cote Cite on Tripadvisor. The B&B is close to the old city and just across the bridge from the newer part of the city. The owner does not open the doors until 4pm in the afternoon. We booked the Alaric room which overlooks the car parking area, very quiet and no street noise. The room was large and... More

Of all the places we were staying during our trip to France, I had the least information about this place. I was also not very excited about Carcassonne generally, but my 11 year old daughter really wanted to go. In the end, I was in for an unexpected surprise - I loved the city and found this hotel to be... More

Building looks nothing from the outside but like all Chambre d'hotes it opens up into a wonderful old building, very ornate and with bags of character. We stayed in a very large room which had its own entrance. Shower room was adequate but slightly small. Bed very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was good but a bit haphazard. Had to ask... More

When we booked this lodging we thought we would have a view of the castle and that we would be closer to the old town instead of down near the bottom of the hill. We had some issue with our accommodation as the pictures on the website we used did not correspond to what we were given. We paid for... More

We researched many hotels and B&Bs in Carcassonne before booking with Simone at Cote Cite. We were very pleased with our choice. We arrived on a freezing December afternoon and were grateful that Simone had put us in the cosiest room she has! It was light and spacious with three sets of French windows. When the evening came, we had... More
