“Lovely hotel in a great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

The location of the hotel, just a few minutes walk from the walled city of Carcassonne is terrific, and the private, secure parking is another big plus point. We were charmed by the bedrooms and the dining areas and found the hostess warm and helpful. The breakfast was slightly disappointing, but otherwise we really enjoyed our stay.

We followed Rick Steves advice and showed up in Carcasonne in the afternoon at Cote Cite then walked in to the old city and castle for the evening. We had a great dinner at restaurant Adelaide and back to a lovely room. Madam Mayer provides a wonderful breakfast and nicely appointed rooms. be prepared to use your French or a translation book because she doesn't speak English but a lot of her clients do and can help. Parking is within the courtyard, your car and belongings are very safe and the walk in to the old city is less than 10 minutes. A great sunset photo of the castle can be had from the bridge right down the street.

We had a lovely two night stay at the Cote Cite. the rooms had great charm and we were made very welcome. A little tricky to find, but the private parking was a huge bonus, and one of the main reasons for booking. Fantastic location for walking up to the old town, and also for walking across the river to the new town. The breakfast was good, but not substantial.

Good location, excellent breakfast. As others have commented, a liitle austere-looking from the outside, but very charming once inside. Free private parking. Simone very helpful despite not speaking English, but I have a little knowledge of French.
We were a liitle disappointed with the cleanliness of our room. There were long dark hairs on the bedsheets and floor which didn't belong to my wife nor I, suggesting that the sheets had not been changed or floor swept since the previous occupant(s). This was the only negative factor.

This was a wonderful chic B&B. Simone made us very welcome and her smile helped overcome our lack of good french. The location is terrific, being 5 min walk from the medieval city and 15 min walk from the Bastitde city. To be able to park in the courtyard was fantastic and a real plus for this property. The whole place was so delightful, wonderfully located and so......French !

Room Tip: Aim for a room facing the courtyard. It means you can have a window open during the night.

The street presence of this bed and breakfast is likely to cause some apprehension--never fear the interior is eclectic shabby chic. It has a very comforting interior design. Go through the entry gate on Rue Trivalle and you find ample free parking. The bed and breakfast is located within easy walking distance of the old castle. My wife and I stayed there two nights and we were well pleased with our accommodation. The breakfast was very good. The small dog that resides with the host is prone to excessive barking. He does not bite--at least he did not bite us--but he does not seem to like strangers. This is passing odd behavior for a dog that is continually confronted with strangers in a bed and breakfast. Notwithstanding, I would not be reluctant to stay there again. On the whole, our stay was a very pleasant experience.
