          The entire atmosphere - luxury in the heart of elegant and thoughtful medieval. Food was so good. Restaurants and bar - stylish and with a great flavor. The vibration of the La Cite! To remember.

          The way for driving into the La Cite heart, where the Hotel is located, is clearly indicated. Especially difficult to learn of correct parking. However, the Hotel did its best to bring us to. Thanks.

          The staff where efficient and very helpful the food was excellent and the view was breathtaking

          Dificulty in finding public transport from railstation and information on the shuttle service should be provided when booking

          Once you actually find the parking for the hotel it is a wonderful oasis in a very popular destination. The main restaurant produces some of the best food I have experienced anywhere. This hotel is a must!

          Sorting the parking situation.

        • Older travelers

          When we finally found the Hotel de La Cite, it was an oasis of charm and tranquility situated in an historic city thronged with sightseers. Our arrival at the old city of Carcassone was rather fraught as it was extremely busy with cars, people and no apparent directions to find this hotel. After phoning, someone came immediately to collect us and our baggage and then parked our car. It was first class service. Also a concert that evening could be enjoyed by any of the guests in the hotel garden. Magnificent breakfast too!

          It needed better signs to find the hotel and repeaters along the route.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          We found the whole experience, pampering and exceptional. It was my 60th Birthday "treat" and the hotel and the staff could not have been kinder or more helpful. The Michelin starred restauarant was a delight, and the sommelier top class. It could not have been better. As a special traet from the Hotel, as it was such a special Birthday, they very kindly, and unexpectedly, upgraded my wife and I to a magnificent Suite.

          Food, Staff

          Couldn't get booking into main restaurant - but second one was excellent.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The location and courtyard

          The bed was too low and hardalso the quality of the toiletries was poor especially the shampoo

        • Couple
          9.2

          The location inside the city wall is unique. The staff are attentive but not overbearing. It's expensive but worth it for a special occasion in a special medieval city.

          I couldn't work out how to turn off the alarm clock. Unplugging it didn't prevent it chiming at 7am!

        • Family with children
          9.6

          fabulous location, beautiful, hotel and gardens, breakfast to die for and staff v helpful. only thing that let it down was wifi which was poor and foreign tv channels which didnt work

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Walking round Carcassonne; sitting in the bar of the hotel; enjoying the view from our bedroom

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          solicitous staff .... every detail considered, every comfort covered. grand hotel in the early 20th century tradition, elegant restaurant w/ elaborate service, though a bistro also available on the premises. Reflects & enhances the atmosphere of Carcassonne. None of this comes cheap, of course. Only comparable hotel we've stayed at is the Spanish parador in Santiago de Compestila.

          Most parking is between the walls of the Cite, a brisk hike to the hotel. The hotel provides a livery car & driver to get you to & from the parking area.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          We were so welcomed & so well received that we immediately felt at home - it was a magical stay & we enjoyed every aspect of the Hotel & it's magnificent integral part of romantic Carcassonne.

          We could not fault anything - except perhaps the fact that massages were not available on Sun & Mon just over our stay.

        • Older travelers
          9.4

          Hotel de la Cite is beautiful and the city itsfelf is breathtaking. Only one complaint - no a la carte breakfast and the standard breakfast for one person is 29 e or about $40! Only want a croissant and a cup of coffee? Still $40! An equivalent breakfast can be had in local cafe for one third of this price. So stay at the hotel de la Cite - just don't eat there.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Perfect location. Hotel staff pick you up from designated car park outside city wall. Well appointed hotel with restaurant and swimming pool and garden. Courteous and helpful staff.

          Even acknowledging the quality of the hotel and its locaition I still consider it very expensive. Also, and this is hardly the hotel's fault, the exclusive promise of the hotel is somewhat marred by the sheer crowds of people visiting Carcassonne.
