We're just back from travelling across Northern Spain to the Mediterranean and then up through the Languedoc to La Loire and home to England. We'd booked one night at the Hotel de la Cite not having much to go on other than the attraction of the 'Orient Express' ownership. We had an outstanding experience. From the moment of arrival at the car parl outside the citadel walls, where we were collected by the charming Vincent, to having our car garage parked overnight and being taken back to it the following day, it was one of the best hotel stays we have ever had. The staff were delightful and the facilities excellent (we took the suite 301 - recommended) but the high point was discovering the hotel itself. We definitely recommend the hotel tour - there are some very interesting nooks and crannies and even a fresco in room 108 (I think). The views from our room were varied and beautiful and to find yourself in the Citadel at Carcassonne when you leave the hotel only adds to the excitement.
