This is a budget hotel very well situated for everything in Carcassonne.
The hotel does not have air conditioning - but the windows open and our room had a fan. There is no lift, but the stairs work just fine and there are only three floors.
The receptionist was freindly and helpful - we were able to check in early (midday) and leave our bags after checking out to pick up at 4pm.
The room was comfortable and clean (spotless); there was a flat screen TV with all the TNT channels and BBC World.
WiFi is available and chargeable.
We had the hotel breakfast for convenience - but it was overpriced at 8 euro. Breakfast is served in a nice room on the ground floor.
The biggest complaint is that our room - on the front - opened onto the main inner ring road, which meant that there was continual traffic noise, which was, at times, quite intrusive.
If arriving on the airport shuttle bus (5 Euro) get off at the station (Gare SNCF) it's nearer here and easier to find than it looks on the maps, compared to Place Dome.
