“Repeat visit”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Very happy to stay here another time, just a 1 nighter this time. As someone who regularly stays in 5 star hotels (On business so not at my expense) I'm definitely impressed ,again a lovely room, very well appointed, super bathroom, spotlessly clean. Great breakfast, and some nice wines available if you fancy a glass before heading out.
Staff so friendly and helpful, some of those posher hotels could take a leaf from the people here. If you want ideas on where to eat, they have suggestions for every pocket and will happily reserve for you.
This time I went to a fab place around the corner, think it was called Meli Melo? Also had lunch in The Market at a place where the guy uses a megaphone to order your meat from the local butcher, it's then cut, wrapped and thrown across to be cooked, doesn't come fresher than that! (sorry can't remember the name, but sure reception will tell you.) Looking forward to coming back.

were hooking up with friends in Narbonne to boat the Midi Canal, we stayed at the Residence for several nights, and I'd love to return.
The people who work there are all very nice, the hotel is in a great location, easy enough to walk to from the train station, yet off the beaten path so it's quiet at night.
They offered up good places to walk to, things to see, places to eat, etc., a sure thing...
So unless you have a better recommendation try the Hotel Residence, I feel confident you'll find it a good place.
All the Best, Salida1048

Room Tip: enjoyed their recommendations restaurant wise, but I must say, their breakfasts were quite nice !

Located just 10 minites walk from the station. Very friendly staff - if it's dinner time they are ready to advise you a restaurant on your choise - ask for the seafood one. Rooms are little bit grandmastyle in furnishing but the bed and bath are OK. Check for some smell in some rooms - but you can open a window to let some fresh air. Breakfast is normal. You can have a circle walk over the embarkment, look at the river gateway and then gaze on th cathedral and the market.
For some reason hotel is closed for the winter season - keep in mind when dreamingto come back to Narbonne

A last minute booking after reading some reviews and they don't do it justice. Very central location and the rooms are of a good size for 2 people. Mini bar, flat screen TV, good bathroom with equally good towels. The best breakfast I've had in a B & B in years - so much choice (even for a veggie)!
Very friendly staff and the parking (extra) is worth it too. 5 minutes into the town square on foot with a nice stroll along the river to get there. Excellent value for money.

This hotel is very well located and in a quiet area of the downtown. The entrance, reception, breakfast and lounge areas are very elegant and decorated with taste. The host is welcoming and will gladly help you with any issues about the town. The bedroom was clean and very simple. It was perfect for a short stay. The breakfast was really good with good quality cake, cheeses and much more. I recommand this hotel and would gladly return.

This is a lovely old hotel very charming and in a great location! We stayed here because my parents had stayed in the past and loved it. unfortunately we made the classic mistake of choosing the cheapest room in the hotel and it really seemed a step below the rest. The room iteself was fine but not as lovely as those on the website but it was mostly the bathroom that was disappointing as it was very dated and old. I would really recommend paying just that little bit more to upgrade to a nicer room and think it would make a world of difference as the hotel was lovely and all other rooms I passed looked much more spacious and luxurious. The staff were very helpful however initially on day one the wifi wouldn't work (think modem just needed rebooting) and despite telling them this on multiple occasions that staff just didn't want a bar of it. Eventually the wifi began working again but I suspect a more well off guest made a complaint that was taken more seriously. There was a lovely lounge and bar area however strangely whenever we sat there no one ever asked if we would like to order a drink.. not sure how that works. Would recommend to anyone willing to pay for the next room up.

Room Tip: Don't choose the cheapest room

Nice old hotel, Staff friendly and helping. Room was very clean and beds comfortable. Good arrangement for parking. We stayed there for 7 nights. We used this location as our base to visit other cities (Sete, Millau, Carcassonne, Perpignan, Béziers and many other places. Hotel is very close to the .Grande Place. restaurants and cafés. Wifi was free but couldn't get the signal from my room, had to go to the common area downstair, very fine from there.

Room Tip: Ask for a room where Wifi signal is good enough
