“Poor room and much to expensive”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

I would not recommend this hotel if you manage to find another place in a city that is quite touristy in the high season. Compared to what it offers (and also compared to other Ibis Hotels) it is very overpriced. Rooms are very small, bathrooms tiny (impossible to fit two people into the bathroom), bed had a bunkbed over our heads on the wall (no idea how this room could fit three people) which gave the whole room the feeling of being in a youth hostel, everything is quite old and needs urgently redoing. Location is fine as mentioned in other reviews.

No frills hotel pleasant scenic 15 minute walk to old City crossing the medieval bridge and views to the castle. European breakfast was satisfying. Rooms are cozy and bathrooms are very small. Staff very helpful, a good base to sleep while you explore during the day.

This was a great location and the hotel was fine.

The staff were very friendly and the garage is secure for storing our bicycles.

The staff also recommended a great place to eat :)

It's just a short walk to the cite and the views from the bridge (round the corner from the hotel) are amazing.

Located near the heart of Carcassonne on a busy thoroughfare. Ten minutes walk from rail station and also the old city. Only five minutes to the main shopping centre. Rooms were very cramped especially the bathroom and the price paid reflected the popularity of the city. Free wifi but breakfast separate at 9.5 euro.

Room Tip: Noisy location with heavy traffic both day and night. Ask for a room at the back.

Perfect location as it's a lovely 10 minutes stroll to la cite or in the other direction into Carcassonne. Compared to other etap/ibis hotels our room was smaller. Still a good standard. I like the vending machines for coffee and snacks provided in other ibis receptions. This does NOT have one - coffee and water is expensive.

Reviewed 18 June 2014

The staff were very helpful and whilst we didn't have breakfast it looked great- vast choice of pastries, meats, cereals etc.

The bed was one if the most comfy experienced in many hotels including 4/5 star hotels.

Location was ideal in the middle of the old and new town so easy walking everywhere. There us a bus stop around the corner from the hotel at the other end of gambetta square at 'the Dome' where you can get a little train or no 4 bus up to the medieval city if you don't fancy the very long and steep climb up the hill.

My one criticism would be the size of the bathroom . It was more or less a cupboard and very tight for space.

Room Tip: Ask for 215 on the floor plan it looked bigger.
