Reviewed 9 August 2009

We booked this as the main Hotel du Chateau was full. The breakfast room, pool etc are all shared with the main hotel and perfectly pleasant - a lovely quiet spot in a very busy touristy place. But the room (not the lowest grade of room!) was just tiny, no room for cases, virtually no storage space and we needed lots of co-operation for two people to share the room. Bed was tiny too. If we hadn't had a car to stow the luggage in, it would have been really claustrophobic. We upgraded after one day to the main hotel which now had some space - more than twice the price (for a junior suite) but a huge relief to have some room to move. And very comfortable too, but then that's the least you'd expect.

We picked this hotel after reading other reports on Trip advisor and found them to be very accurate. The hotel is a perfect location only minutes from the walled city. We arrived by train and the taxi ride cost 7 euros plus tip.
Front desk staff are great and helped us in many ways. They even arranged an early breakfast for us so that we could still make our early train and booked the return taxi for us. Having breakfast in such close proximity to the castle was a highlight of our stay.
The room is simple and on the small side but it was ver clean, the AC worked and the bed was comfortable. I expected to be kept awake by corridor noise but this did not happen. If you are staying in this town then this is a good choice.
Note; they have two dogs and a cat who reside in the hotel lobby. If you don't like animals then this may not be a place for you

The Montmorency is a pleasant hotel ideally located near the entrance to the castle. The room was clean. The staff was helpful. Internet was included free. The only word of warning is that the map on their website is not very detailed. We had some difficulty finding the hotel and due to language issues, the desk clerk was unable to provide any useful help, which was a bit frustrating. I would advise that you bring a good map of the town with you. Aside from having trouble finding the hotel, we had a lovely stay.

This two star hotel across the road from its sister three star is well worth considering for a stay in Carcassone. Situated directly outside the main entrance to the Cite, it is clean and well priced. You have free parking and the option of using the swimming pool and jacuzzi. The breakfast, at 10 euros each, seems a little steep, but it is impeccably served in a calm relaxing atmosphere. One quibble - the room was tiny and there was literally not enough space to stow suitcases and clothes so I spent the whole time tripping over my case and taking everything out when I wanted something.

Literally only 4 minutes from the entrance to the old city and fortress. Staff was friendly, free computers in the lobby of the main hotel across the street. Room was a bit warn with the wall paper peeling in one place and fabric warn off of the edge of one chair. Good sound prof windows and AC. Save in room which is nice. Breakfast was pretty standard continental style and served to your table.

Well equipped room, patio with table and chairs, clothes line in bathroom. Very small room however, no place to put suitcase other than on the bed. Had to squeeze knees in to sit on toilet.

The location to the Cite is the best. Just a short walk up the hill to the gate, very convenient. Secure parking was included in our 95€ per night price. The pool looked nice but we didn't get a chance to use it.

There are two computers in the Chateau's lobby for free use of the internet.

I didn't mind that the Montmorency was behind the Chateau, the price is much more reasonable.
