We stayed at the Hotel Donjon during our visit to Carcassonne for the music festival. The location was fantastic, and a very short walk from it's over-priced neighbour the Hotel Cite.
The decor was great, and there was a lovely little peaceful garden off the busy streets where you have breakfast. It's a great place to stay if you want to be 'in the thick of it'
We were allocated a room which was in a seperate building up the road (40 second walk), and it was all clean fresh, and very tasteful. My only gripe would be that our room (no 14) was directly above the exit to the querky haunted house outside, so up until 11pm everyday you would hear a big bang and then screams. It was quite funny though watching people come out terrified but laughing!
We also had the 3 course set menu at the Brasserie Donjon, which comes highly recommended. Glad we reserved as was very busy, and not surprisingly so as the food was delicious.
Such a fantastic location and we paid a quarter of the price of the rooms at Hotel Cite and received a much better service.
I would definately stay here again.
