We stayed at La Cite several years ago and wanted to return to see if we enjoyed it as much as the first time. We did enjoy it although now that we are older we look at some things with a different perspective. We were in Room 112 which was a lovely room with a small terrace overlooking the gardens. Our room was large and the bathroom was large. Excellent wifi in the rooms. Because the hotel has been built inside the walls of a historic building, all the rooms are different and on different levels. To get to our room we had to take an elevator to the first floor and then take several sets of stairs. If you are handicapped or cannot do stairs, you should let them know when making a reservation as many of the rooms require stairs to get to them.
The hotel is pricey. When we were there in early November Carcassone was practically deserted and many of the restaurants and shops closed for the month. The hotel offered no big discounts - we still paid over $400 for our room. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel - we thought 25 Euros pp was horribly expensive since we mainly just have coffee and a roll. We had 2 glasses of champagne and a bowl of ice cream at the bar in the evening and it was over $60! Be prepared to have your wallet handy.
Staff is very nice and friendly.
