This must have been a very grand hotel when it opened in 1914. The entrance and the staircase are wonderful. Our room was large and we had a view of the Cite Medievale. The hotel has a restaurant which is open 7 days a week and a bar which extends outside onto the pavement. The location is very good, a...

Maybe building needs some works to update rooms and some areas. But at the same time its long history makes this Hotel something special. Service and people is always ready to help you with everything, even with assistance with a parking that don't belongs to the Hotel. Food is excellent as well. We took a voucher including a lovely cruise...

As someone who doesn't like modern or corporate chain hotels, I adored Hotel Soleil Terminus. The hotel is a quirky, grande dame of a place that's certainly seen better days, but oozes historic charm and character. We stayed last minute for one night to ‘do’ Carcassonne. The hotel is next to the station, which is perfect for dropping off travel...

Impressive entrance lobby, fab glass and ceiling, we had a great big room facing the square. The bathroom was also huge however the rooms badly need some refurbishment, the same applies to the hotel in general. A lick of paint would go a long way. Overall experience was very good. The staff were helpful and friendly. Good location for train...

Old, once stately, hotel in center of town. Large lobby, turn of century details but it needs a thorough restauration to be great again. Rooms also, standard is unmodern and not charming enough to leverage its history. But it would have potential if renovated and operated by a top brand.

As I love Belle Epoch style we chose this hotel. The rooms for Europe were large whilst a little tired but were very comfortable. The view of the medieval city was amazing - it's not every day you view a castle from your room. The hotel is an easy walk from the station and very close to the Canal du...

We spent our anniversary weekend in the beautiful walled city of Carcassonne and managed to get a special offer at this hotel. The service was very good and the people were helpful, definitely service with a smile. We spent our first night eating in the hotel Brasserie, the food was good value for money and well-cooked.

I stayed here with friends mainly because of the architecture of the hotel. It has a french tourism rating of 4 stars, the price to go with it, but deserves neither. The rooms are enormous, but amenities and facilities are minimal. Yet, great place if you want to live a bit of early 20th century style/history.

We visited Carcassonne to celebrate my wife birthday and stayed in this hotel over the weekend. The hotel location is very central, near the canal and the train station and about 20-25 minutes to the old town. The building is very original originating from the 19th century and its full of character. It does require an update. We were upgraded...

Friendly helpful staff but a hotel that needs a complete refurb. Faded grandeur indeed. Looks like nothing has been invested in it since about 1900. Dirty carpets, horrible smells, rusted balconies. Never again.
