I was very impressed with this Mercure. It is a short walking distance from La Cite. Not only did we each get a complementary drink on arrival in the bar, but as there was a wine festival that weekend, we were also given a free bottle of wine from a Carcassonne vineyard. The room itself was lovely with a large shower, separate toilet, and direct access to the gardens. It comfortbaly fit our family of 4. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was included. To get the free wi-fi, you need to ask reception for a udsername and password. They were kind enough to give us 4 separate passwords to accommodate each of the family's devices. Breakfast was fantastic as well. A great stay thoroughly enjoyed by all.
The only negatives were that despite the weather being quite mild, the pool was closed, to the disappointment of my children. Also, parking is available on-site, but the carpark was packed. We were lucky enough to get the last one but some other selfish hotel visitors had parked across multiple parks, whiich meant the next guest couldn't find a park. I heard later that you can ask reception to open up the staff carpark for you, so I guess it isn't really a problem.
