What can I say that other guests have not but I feel compelled to give this outstanding Hotel the praise it deserves. We stayed at the Hotel de la Cite a few weeks ago, along with our two teenage children and will always consider our three nights there to be one of the highlights of this summer trip to France. The staff and management of this hotel work to ensure that every aspect of your stay is worthy of a five star rating. The exquistie experience begins with the transport provided by the hotel staff from the private medival city parking area to the front door of the Hotel, while amazing us with their ability to drive the shuttle with five occupants and luggage through the anciant gates and streets of Carcassonne. Our rooms were spacious and well equipped with TVs, stereo systems, WIFI and plush bedding, with the bathroom sporting double sinks, a large bathtup and a shower with both a waterfall showerhead and a hand-held shower device. The staff ensured that we could plan our stay in the area in an informed manner by placing in our room a printed weather forcast for the duration of our stay. Our room also provided an extensive balcony with views over the Hotel garden and the medival city walls and towers - a sight that was most magical in the mornings and evenings when the crowds departed the city. My son and husband were absolutely smitten with the elaborate breakfast buffet provided in the Hotel's elegant dinning hall - exotic fruits, an assortment of cheese and meats, yogurt, cereals , breads, hot breakfast items as well as coffee, expresso and juices - nothing left to be desired. An afternoon by the Hotel's heated pool, which backs up to the walls of the medival cathedral, was a necessary and rejuvenating experience. We looked very much forward to our stay here and were so delighted that the experience turned out to be everything and more than we expected.
