“Small traditional hotel”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

I chose this hotel because it was small and looked very French, as we didn't want to stay in one of the big chains which are the same all over the world. Our welcome was friendly and the receptionist spoke English. The building is old as other reviewers have described and is a bit shabby with small rooms, but it suited our purposes just fine. We thought the breakfast was more than adequate - it is an optional extra at 10 euros and we were happy with the quality and quantity provided, as well as the service. Arriving on a Sunday, a lot of the restaurants nearby were closed but this was pointed out to us at the hotel, with recommendations of those that would be open nearby. This hotel gives good access to the main town, but is a good walk from the old city, a consideration if you want to go back there to eat in the evening, as we did.

Reviewed 23 May 2013

This is a smaller hotel (about 20 rooms) in a 200 year old large mansion house that has been converted to a hotel. The building has been kept up to date and offers modern conveniences, including free Wi-Fi and free parking, but guests must appreciate that because of the nature of the historical building, the rooms tend to be small.

The trick to having an enjoyable stay here is to ask the front desk staff to show you several different rooms to allow you to make your choice before you check in. Each room is unique and different, and by looking at several different rooms first, you will be able to find one that suits your preferences (and avoid being assigned a room that is too small for you).

The staff are extraordinarily gracious, friendly, and helpful. Do not hesitate to ask the staff for advice about what to see in the community.

The hotel does not have a restaurant. Breakfast is available for an additional charge of €10 per night. On a stand-alone basis, the breakfast charge is rather high relative to what you get for breakfast, but when you consider the total charges in context (room charge, free parking, free Wi-Fi, breakfast charge, etc.) the hotel offers good value for a downtown Carcassonne location.

Room Tip: Ask to see several different rooms at the time of check-in. No two are the same.
