The room is super tiny after a trip up a narrow spiral staircase (no elevator). Bed is clean and bathroom is clean. Floors are moderately clean and fairly old. Walls have been re-stuccoed recently. The staff (singular) is very friendly and helped us with restaurant recommendations, breakfast, etc. Spoke English well. Breakfast is a buffet at a decent 8 Euro.

We stayed in rm 20 which was really a combination of two rooms, a single rm and a double room. We couldn't tell on line whether the double bed was large enough for two people (we are used to a queen & king bed) so we opted for a single and double. The double bed was plenty large enough, it...

It is a pleasure to stay at a family run hotel like this one instead of at an impersonal chain. The hotel is a little dated but has all the modern requirements, internet, good beds, television, private bathrooms etc. It is well located within a short walk of the walled city. We most enjoyed the excellent breakfast with home made...

My wife and I, a mature couple, have just spent 4 nights at this hotel. The shuttle bus from the airport dropped us off at the end of the street about 75m from the hotel. We had read previous reviews and it did not disappoint. Our hosts both spoke very good English and provided us with a local map and...

Stayed 3 nights and loved the hotel. You can't get a better view of the castle and city walls than from the roof terrace. Perfect location for walking to the old city as well as the Bastide (new-er town). The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and made our stay a pleasure - thank you. The bed was comfy and...

The room we had on the top floor had a fantastic view of the castle & city. There is a small roof terrace ideal for smoking and staring up at the castle. The one way system in Carcassonne had us circling a couple of times until we worked out the route to approach the hotel (from the south). Public car...

Our staying was great: the position is just 5 minutes from medioeval city center, the parking lot is 3 minutes away. The keeper was friendly and gave us tips about everything. The hotel is and old building with all the ancient french fashion and a very warm atmosphere so, don't expect super-fancy-modern-cold ambients. Our room was pretty large (compared to...

Spent 4 nights here and would highly recommend. The hotel is near the drop off/pick up point for the airport bus. The hotel looks a bit shabby from the outside but once you step inside you are met by the owners who are very friendly and speak english well. A spiral staircase takes you to the rooms.

This place is well worth it. Just steps away from the walled medieval city, it has its own parking lot from your car. The rooms are cozy but beautiful and modern. The staff speaks perfect English and is very professional and accommodating. The breakfast was excellent too. And the basset hound (Elliot) is very charming.
