“Location location”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Spent a week here and found the location good close to Medieval Cite - 15 min walk. It's amazing value in terms of that, the accommodation is basic very basic but for a couple if nights at this price it's good.the staff helpful and breakfast reasonable €13 - rolls yoghurt etc. bikes to hire for €10 for half day if you want to ride into the new cite for shopping or looking around- its pleasant. There are good restaurants on Rue de Trivalle which is the road down from the old Cite. I ate at a few of them and food great. Recommend A short stay.

The hotel was easy to get to from the airport. In two separate stays we had two different studio rooms. The second was probably newer as the decor was much better. Both rooms had a small but adequate kitchen area with a fridge and hob which were very useful for breakfasts and snacks. The hotel is well located and we were able to walk up the hill into the wonderful medieval city and also into the more modern city centre. There was also lots of parkland and a river close by. Not so good were the poor window blinds in both rooms but they just about did the required job. We also don't much like over-bath showers that have no high holders but we managed OK. The staff were pleasant and helpful and spoke English. We felt that inspite of the minor difficulties it was good value and we would stay there again.

Room Tip: Our stay in the newer block was better E,F and G but there was no lift in that block with two short...

Cher client,
Merci pour vos remarques judicieuses. Elles résument tout à fait notre établissement et notre positionnement par rapport à la concurrence.
En effet, nous privilégions la politique tarifaire pour des chambres fonctionnelles et propres. Les rideaux occultant ne sont pas notre meilleur investissement et nous devons prévoir de les remplacer prochainement. L'équipe vous remercie pour vos encouragements.

We were only in Carcassonne for one night to see the walled city. Adonis was perfectly placed for this. The room was basic but the kitchenette was useful and the staff were friendly and helpful. The wifi was a bit spotty.

Un grand merci pour avoir laissé un avis positif...
Cela fait du bien avec la saison estivale éprouvante. Nous essayons tjrs de faire de notre mieux et vos compliments nous enchantent.
Le soucis rencontré avec le Wi-fi est surement un problème de bande passante et de la plage horaire d'utilisation.
L'équipe Adonis vous souhaite une bonne continuation.

My wife and I stayed for one night on 30/7/13. We checked in, walked up to the old town of carcassonne, slept here and left so we did not really test the place out. It was such a convenient location for the old cite and we got free parking on the street easy enough. 8.50 euro for their secure parking. 9e I think for buffet breakfast. We used neither. Staff were friendly, place was clean. Fridge and hobs etc for cooking yourself.

This hotel is ideally located beneath the Cite walls and lose to the Aude Gate. There are restaurants and a few small shops within a short walk. The staff at reception were helpful. We stayed five nights.

Parking on the streets is possible but you may have a long walk with your luggage! There is secure underground parking at the hotel for an extra charge. We used it without problem.

The room was clean but the whole approach is undoubtedly minimalist! The furniture was sparse and basic and four people using this room or more than an overnight stay would find it difficult - particularly as the toilet is off the living area, which contains the second "bed" - a two seater pull-down couch with no arms. Other than the four dining chairs around a small table, this is the only seating provided. The television is small and a telescope is required for viewing.

The main bedroom - and the bathroom - were up an awkward narrow staircase, which we found quite tricky to negotiate in the dark when accessing the toilet. A tall person would find the bedroom and bathroom awkward as there is a sloping roof, and low doorways, upstairs. The bath has a shower attachment, but you have to hold it by hand to use it.

The kitchen is poorly equipped. We had to buy cups, and use the microwave to boil water. There was no way of washing up, other than by hand as no cloths were provided. Do not expect to perform other than basic tasks in the kitchen. Room cleaning only takes place at the end of your stay - not each day.

The room had a damp odour at first, which we found came from the bathroom and toilet, but as long as we opened the windows and aired the room there was no real problem. We found no mould, which had troubled other reviewers, and the decor was fresh.

Our only other issue was the music and noise from the Parc Hotel. Although it is some distance along the road, it was VERY loud and went on until 2am. Earplugs helped! This seemed only to affect some rooms in Block E.

We would return but only for a short stay.

Room Tip: Avoid those in E block facing away from the Pont Vieux

My husband and I were planning on one night in Carcassonne and searched for the most convenient and cost effective hotel in close proximity to La Cite - we found it at Adonis La Barbacane. Not sure what these accomodations are usually, we guessed they are student residences. The front entrance where the reception is located is only open from 8am to 12pm, then 3pm to 10pm. If you arrive there between 12 & 3, it will be locked and you will have to wait on the sidewalk with your luggage until they re-open. This didn't happen to us as we arrived mid-morning, but just a tip to all those arriving later on - plan accordingly :). We couldn't check in until 3pm, but the girl at reception was very friendly and accomodating by locking up our luggage for us until check-in time. Once we were able to check in, our room was in one of the adjoining buildings. It was a two-floor room - toilet, small kitchenette and living room on main floor & sink/shower and bedroom on the second floor. It was clean and comfortable, which is all we are really concerned with, so it met our needs for the one night.
The hotel is a solid 25 minute walk from the train station (at a brisk pace) -- we had to leave very early the next morning, so had the receptionist book a cab for us the afternoon before. The cab didn't show up in the morning, so we did the marathon walk to the train station to catch our train on time. The area is dead in the morning, so catching a random cab won't happen - again, plan yourself accordingly, especially because reception doesn't open until 8am.
The hotel is around the corner from the foot access to La Cite - so it is in a very convenient location for that.
All in all, for a one night stay it was fine - longer than that, we would have probably booked in a real hotel.

There was nowhere to park when we arrived in the early evening in our hire car, then the woman at reception was in a hurry - and there were no other customers - and was not pleasant or helpful. Bad start! The room we had had very old and 'tired' decor and fittings needed renovating and modernising. We would not recommend this to friends, although the location was excellent in relation to the castle. Very limited restaurants within walking distance for dinner.

Room Tip: Were there any? We were on the lower level from reception.
