“Great Position and Very Clean”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

We stayed overnight before catching our train to Spain. Great value for a large, clean apartment in spitting distance to the walled city and an easy walk over to the old city. Positives: clean, well positioned and comfortable. Negatives: no baggage drop (indeed everything's locked up) if you arrive before check in time of 3.00pm; could have done with a decent amount of soap in the bathroom; we weren't told of the facilities of the complex on check-in - this was a problem since we'd booked on our smart phone and didn't know that there was a gym, jacuzzi etc. The Adonis really reminded me of my old University Campus days. Having said all that, would we stay there again? Definitely! It's well priced, well positioned and comfortable.

We stayed over a wintering weekend in February and caught the bus from the airport. Clean duplex apartment, cheap accommodation and it has a kitchen. Bit of a walk into the City or to the Old City, so I suppose positioned well nestled in between. Can't comment on the staff as we barely saw them, but that could have been the hours we kept!

Stayed here with my brother and it was great, there's a sofabed in the living room so could easily sleep two couples. Place was really clean and had all the amenities needed for a short stay. The staff were really friendly and helpful and spoke great english, we got the room really cheap as it was just out of season which was nice as well but would still recommend it at full price.

This hotel was in the perfect location for access to the medieval castle
On the other side of the road you will find the river and parks
we stayed for 7 nights and if you chose to stay here and do not like to walk far ( supermarket and town were quite a walk) then it would be Better if you were with a car
It was disappointing that the spa was not heated
And the office hours were odd for check in
Apartment is spacious

What you have to know before reading this review is that I am a fairly light sleeper - if you sleep like the dead then ignore this - otherwise read on

I was very disappointed by our stay. The only positive aspect was the reception staff who were very polite and cheerful.

A minor problem was that the residence was extremely sparse. Our duplex came with a kitchen but almost no basic essentials. There were no cups so we had to drink out of soup bowls, there was no means of washing up dishes, no cleaners etc. The decor was Spartan and the bedroom only had a roof window to look at the sky. Outside the gardens were a mess of weeds that you would not want to sit in.

However, all of the above could be excused by the fact that the price was reasonable. The very major problem was that our bedroom was right next to the block air conditioner which made a loud humming noise all night. After an entirely sleepless night I complained to the reception and asked for the night to be refunded and to move to a different room. The staff were very polite and said that they would pass on our complaint to the management. The management refused to provide a refund – indeed their one gesture was to give back the 8 Euro per night car parking fee. This was wholly inadequate and insulting. Who would go on holiday and spend an entire night awake for 8 Euros?

We were very disappointed and left. Even though the management went on to charge us for the full three nights we originally booked for it was better to more elsewhere and sleep.

Rating: I am 50 years old and have travelled the world – this rivals a bug infested shack in Australasia as the worst deal ever: 0/5

Clean room, free wi-fi. Nice walk to city. Staff not present after 10 pm so be sure to get a code to reenter.

Situated in the foothills of La Cité, La Barbacane is an absolutely ideal place to stay if you want to wake up each morning with a great view of the imposing castle...
The apartment I stayed in would easily have accommodated 3-4 people and proved a real bargain. It was clean, light and airy, with all the amenities you could have hoped for.
The staff were very helpful indeed and very knowledgeable about the local area.
The hotel itself is in a great location as it is only a 10-minute walk via the old bridge to the city centre.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to visit the beautiful Carcassonne and especially those who want to be near La Cité...
