“3 Nights in Carcassonne”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

This is an excellent hotel, well run with polite and very professional staff who also speak very good English. (My French is getting better with each trip!). Had 2 breakfasts here which were very good and an excellent evening meal....something I've found Campanile is very good at. The hotel itself is on the edge of an industrial estate but does have the advantage of having 2 supermarkets within 3 minutes walk....handy for all those bottles of water, sun cream etc.. The old city is a realistic 20/25 minutes walk away which negates the need for hiring a car. The new city is about a 35 minute walk. The hotel is spotless and the rooms are large ish with excellent facilities and a 2 head shower which is great to get you started after the previous night's wine! There is also a very good bar/lounge area and plenty of space to hang around in. Plus Free Wi-Fi.

I was one of a party of 4 (2 couples) and we all had a very positive experience. We would all definitely stay here again.

We stayed 2 nights to visit the castle of Carcassone. The hotel is a little hard to find, is located in an industrial area with a supermarket right opposite. The car is essential . The room although not large was very comfortable, it was clean and had coffeemaker. The bed provides a great night. The internet is good. It offers magazines and newspapers. The car park is private and free. We had dinner one night but we were not satisfied with the quality of the food.The breakfast is served until 9 am which we felt very early. However the price / quality ratio is very good.

Service by the staff was good. The room was very clean and beds were very comfortable. The location was difficult to find and breakfast was very good for the price. The best was the facility (building), cleanliness and the least that I liked was the location because was hard to find.

We stayed at the Campanile Carcassonne Est - La Cité for two nights in March 2013.

Pros: It's a hotel brand - you know what to expect. We stayed at another Campanile hotel (in Lyon) and we liked it, so we chose them again for our trip to Carcassone: they didn't disappoint us. The room was very clean, beds were comfortable (though a bit hard for my taste), the bathroom was perfect and the staff was kind and helpful (English and Spanish are spoken). Prices are very reasonable and much cheaper than in the centre for a hotel with similar characteristics.

The restaurant was ok too and we had a tasty supper there - they support local products, which is a nice touch.

Cons: Although we could see La Cité from our bedroom, the hotel is not really within a walking distance from Old Carcassonne. I mean, you could easily do it in the morning (it's just a pair of kilometres), but I wouldn't do it by night. Instead of that, just drive there (5 minutes) and park in the public parking just in front of La Cité. We left our car there all day and it only cost us 9 euros: so much easier that walking in the darkness!

Overall: Keep in mind that you need your own vehicle. Other than that, it's great value. I would totally repeat and recommend it.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side face La Cité.

If you're looking for a budget option that is still walking distance to the cite medievale and has all the amenities of a hotel then this is a great choice. For 55 euros a night, we had a super clean and modern room with a large bathroom, free wi fi and a tv. We were very comfortable as soon as we arrived and the reception speaks English if necessary. She gave us a map of Carcassonne and pointed out the route to the city. We are young and fit and the walk really only took 15 minutes and it was super easy... just down one road! We got to the city nice and early and walked around the ramparts without seeing a single person. Travelling in winter is excellent. There are not a lot of meal options around the hotel but it does have an excellent restaurant with a buffet or a la carte. There is a waiter in the restaurant (who only speaks French) who is so kind and accommodating. He made us feel very welcome! There are also HEAPS of really great supermarkets just across the road with all sorts of produce so you can stock up before you leave. We didn't have a car so we had to take a taxi from the train station which took 8 minutes and cost us around 10 euro. Apparently there is a bus service but the hotel didn't recommend it. All in all, a good choice!

The price per night is extremely reasonable. The accommodation is clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly. The downsides are: Most TV channels do not work, there were no working channels in English. The shower did not work, only possible to have extremely hot water. Breakfast is too expensive at 9.50€. The restaurant is plastic and uncomfortable

A quick stop-over, great rate, very clean, warm, comfortable, good cable and free wifi. Quick ride to La Cite, wouldn't try to walk it in the winter or at night, a few fast food restaurants nearby, food store across from the entrance. The staff was very helpful..... overall, a good choice for a short stay if you don't need to stay at $ hotels within La Cite's walls.
There are brasseries, restaurants and taverns open, day and night, within/inside La Cite, so if you arrive late in the day you do not have to drive all around, looking for a place to eat/drink/relax.
