Adonis Carcassonne - Residence la Barbacane
Reviewed 3 September 2013

My husband and I were planning on one night in Carcassonne and searched for the most convenient and cost effective hotel in close proximity to La Cite - we found it at Adonis La Barbacane. Not sure what these accomodations are usually, we guessed they are student residences. The front entrance where the reception is located is only open from 8am to 12pm, then 3pm to 10pm. If you arrive there between 12 & 3, it will be locked and you will have to wait on the sidewalk with your luggage until they re-open. This didn't happen to us as we arrived mid-morning, but just a tip to all those arriving later on - plan accordingly :). We couldn't check in until 3pm, but the girl at reception was very friendly and accomodating by locking up our luggage for us until check-in time. Once we were able to check in, our room was in one of the adjoining buildings. It was a two-floor room - toilet, small kitchenette and living room on main floor & sink/shower and bedroom on the second floor. It was clean and comfortable, which is all we are really concerned with, so it met our needs for the one night.
The hotel is a solid 25 minute walk from the train station (at a brisk pace) -- we had to leave very early the next morning, so had the receptionist book a cab for us the afternoon before. The cab didn't show up in the morning, so we did the marathon walk to the train station to catch our train on time. The area is dead in the morning, so catching a random cab won't happen - again, plan yourself accordingly, especially because reception doesn't open until 8am.
The hotel is around the corner from the foot access to La Cite - so it is in a very convenient location for that.
All in all, for a one night stay it was fine - longer than that, we would have probably booked in a real hotel.

There was nowhere to park when we arrived in the early evening in our hire car, then the woman at reception was in a hurry - and there were no other customers - and was not pleasant or helpful. Bad start! The room we had had very old and 'tired' decor and fittings needed renovating and modernising. We would not recommend this to friends, although the location was excellent in relation to the castle. Very limited restaurants within walking distance for dinner.

Room Tip: Were there any? We were on the lower level from reception.

We had prebooked and paid for 2 nights. The location/parking was ideal. However, the apartment was poorly maintained, with black mould round the bath, dirty grout, stained ceiling tiles, damp cheap abrasive carpet in the bedroom, the blinds did not work properly, the air con was broken. After the first night I asked for a refund for the second night, as we would not stay there another night. The request was refused, we left anyway. Poor customer service. On a plus side the breakfast wasrather good. Summary - stay away until they have spent some money on bringing it up to a satifactory level. A shame, because the location is ideal.

Room Tip: read other reviews /photos, our experience was not unique.

Friendly check in staff who were multi lingual. Clean spacious accommodation which for the price given proximity to la citie and the prices charged in other parts of France is very good. Free wifi a bonus. A kettle would have been nice but everything was working clean functionable and acceptable.

Negative:
- When we arrived, the hostel had 'siesta', meaning doors were closed between 12 and 3pm. We had to wait among other travellers until the reception was opened.

- The first thing we discovered in our room was considerable mould growth on the ceiling (1 square metre at least). How long should a hotel wait to repair such a disgusting damage? This mould had time enough to grow. There were other things to be renovated, too. How can a 3*** hotel offer such ill-kept rooms?

- jacuzzi (adjacent to the gym) was lukewarm
- loud humming noise of unknown origin all night long in our room

Positive:
- its close vicinity to the castle
- working free wifi
- spacious rooms
- jacuzzi (adjacent to the gym)
- polite reception staff

Of course, you do not reside here in a very charming hotel. Just if you are looking for an amazingly good budget accommodation you should not longer look for another place. Cheap, clean and a great location as it is next to the castle respectively ramparts. Staff was very friendly. You can find parking easily in the streets around the hotel.

We booked this as a place to stay near La Cite, and this is close.....Apart from the long walk up very very steep steeps, but that was fine, helps build up the appetite. The hotel was very cheap (£40!) so I cannot complain about the price. Parked right outside, and there is also a nice garden. Only grumbles, only 1 pillow each asked for more and was told they only had 1 spare...Bed was hard. But for the price I would stay again..
