    We spent here the first night of our route. Well maybe it was not our first choice, we don't like to spend much money in hotels but everything was full! A very nice hotel in the centre of the city, in front of a little park, it was like these old and elegant grand hotels of the beginning of the XX century. The Belle Epoque Hall with its grande escalier is very nice

    Turn of the century chic................


    This hotel has obviously undergone some recent restoration (it's part of a hotel chain now, I think) and is now called Hotel Du Soleil Le Terminus. Other reviews seem to have judged it quite harshly in the past, but I found it really rather good for someone on a middling budget. My room was spacious and pristine, with a brand new bathroom and air con system (not that I needed the latter!). The breakfast was more than adequate, served in the brasserie when the hotel was less busy, with unlimited coffee/ croissants/ baguettes etc etc. Towels and linen were changed every two days, the manager (Laurent) was courteous and helpful. There's even a pool/ sauna etc in the basement (though I didn't visit).

    The hotel is next to the Canal du Midi, 2 minutes from the station and about 20 minutes walk from the Cite. There's a convenient taxi rank outside the entrance, and the double windows (with internal shutters if required) ensured that traffic noise was minimal (Carcassonne is fairly quiet at night anyway).

    The only downside is the lack of safe deposit boxes, and no baggage room (although I suspect you could leave your bags in the massive foyer if you asked nicely). I had to wander around with my case for a couple of hours between arriving from the airport and actually getting into my room.

    Unique Quality: The foyer and staircase are an impressive masterpiece of early 20th century marble.

    They will, apparently, be running children's activities in the summer holidays.

    Directions: 2 minutes from the railway station, 2 minutes from the airport shuttle bus stop, taxi to the airport takes 10 minutes.

We have booked flights for a long weekend in Carcassonne in October. Can anyone recommend a pension or small hotel (bearing in mind we will be walking/bussing only)?
Thanks in advance

Re: Carcassonne

An unimaginative choice would be one of the many Ibis hotels in and around Carcassonne:

In town and 3 stars I recommend Des Trois Couronnes

2, rue des Trois Couronnes

At La Cité I recommend:

Hotel du Château (***)
2 Rue Camille Saint Saens

Hotel Le Montmorency (**)
2 Rue Camille Saint Saens (same address as Hotel du Château)

Re: Carcassonne

Carcassonnne is a small and very walkable town. There are buses from La Bastide to La Cite, but it is perfectly feasible to walk from one to the other.

I stayed in L'Hotel du Soleil le Terminus, which was convenient for airport bus/railway station/Canal du Midi. Not small, but perfectly ok.

You will pay a premium for staying anywhere in La Cite, but you may consider the 'romance' to be worthwhile.

might be of interest.

We stayed at the Mercure Hotel "Porte de la Cité". Not the cheapest, not the most expensive. Good location at the gate of the Medieval town and a wonderful view over the ramparts and the old city. Nice rooms, good food, beautiful garden and swimming pool. Also, if you'd have a car, there is enough parking. Excellent hotel to explore the Medieval city on foot.

Hôtel du Pont Vieux is the alternative. It is located right at the foot of La Cité, is nice, all rooms are different, and not overly expensive. A double room with view of the Cité costs, depending on the season, between 65 and 84 Euro. Their pride is the lovers room (Chambre des Amoureux).
