      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Soleil Terminus Carcassonne

      Good for the price

      from

      Stayed here for the weekend and it was one of those hotels that does a perfectly adequate job for the price. Good things - room looked newly refurbished, great view over to la cite, breakfast was great (tho' I wouldn't normally expect to have to scavenge crockery from other tables....). Bad things - only a handheld shower, check in not until 5pm (sadly the lateness is not mirrored in the check out, which is 10am).

      Faded elegance but still a very good experience

      from

      Six of us had an excellent stay at this hotel. We had no complaints at all. Location was very good, hotel was spotless and staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was more than adequate and evening meal very good. Very reasonable. Would definitely stay there again.

      Central and ok for short stay

      from

      we arrived at 2pm hoping to deposit bags in the room and freshen up before exploring the city, but we weren't allowed in rooms until after 5pm. Room was fine, but view over dirty glass roofs not so good. Only stayed one night and was very convienient for the airport.

      Good location

      from

      Stayed one night. Room was large and bathroom ok. Didn't have breakfast. Many French hotels don't have fixed shower heads! Hotel beside station, the canal and the old town so plenty of shops and restaurants. Quite a walk to the Cite though. Parking was difficult - we managed to miss the underground car park opposite and then got caught up in the awful one way system. Fading elegance!

      It's good!

      from

      I don't know why people have been so critical of the Terminus. We had good rooms, the breakfast was excellent, the pool is great and all for 37.50 a head. The place does have a touch of faded glory about it and a few eccentricities but thats part of its charm. Like everyone else, we had problems with the shower head but managed to fix it with the clip off a biro!

      Awful

      from

      Colleagues and I stayed at the Terminus for 2 nights on business. All of our rooms were small, poor quality bedding and not very inviting. There was no shower fitting, just a hand held shower. Breakfast was OK, didn;t bother with an evening meal. Only book here if nowhere else is available, shame as if decorated properly with management that cared about customer service this could be a top hotel. Only good thing is that it is near the station. However if you want to see the historic side of Carcasonne then stay near La Cite (Mercure hotel was very nice). Best way is to find one is to use otel (drop the h of hotel).

      Terrible!!!

      from

      The stay was terrible and very expensive. The rooms were small and noisy, with old and spoiled furniture. The bathroom was pathetic and dirty.

      The breakfast room was very dirty too, there was coffee over the table, ice slipping and leaving a puddle and the food was bad.

      It is the worst place where I have been.

      Terrible!!! Terrible!!! Terrible!!!

      Absolut pathetic!!!

      Couldn't have been better

      from

      Yes, the receptionist was amazingly beautiful and very nice. All the staff was nice, and our stay could not have been more pleasant. No problems with the room, the elevator or the food. We would go back in a minute.

      I agree with London member

      from

      Le terminus WAS the only hotel in Carcassonne available for the 13th & 14th july. I accepted only one small bar of soap (confiscated after the first night), the missing plug for the bath(sink plug would not fit), ill fitting shower head ( you had to hold the shower in one hand), the bad TV reception, the refusal to allow check-in before 5pm - what maddened me most was the removal of the dinner menu - without any notice and with printed menus still in the room and on the notice board - on the bastille holiday night. We tried to order dinner as we had done the previous night only to be greeted with blank looks and shrugs of shoulders until eventually a manager who could speak some english took us from our prized seats outside to show us a pre-cooked buffet. Final straw was having to carry suitcases down the stairs - the one small lift was broken (again without even a notice to tell guests)

      So the only good thing....

      from

      To say that there was only one good thing about the hotel is true. All seemed great upon arrival because the young French girl behind the counter was astoundingly good looking. Sadly that seemed to be the only day she was there. I stayed for three night in a suite on the 2nd floor. It was at the front overlooking a square. The bed was comfy but decoration was lacking and the bathroom was filthy. No shower curtain and the shower head would not stay in position. Continental breakfast was served up in what must at one time have been a ball room. Now it is a shabby school hall type of affair.

      Sorry folks but only book this hotel if nowhere else in Carcassonne has vacancies.

It is truly a unique place with gorgeous little cobblestone streets, restaurants, and shops and oddly enough there are still 44 permanent residents that live in the Cite. We spent most of the ...

      We chose a restaurant that had been recommended to us by a local and were not disappointed with our meals, well maybe a little disappointed in that they had run out of their signature dish of cassoulette. The highlight of tonight was a soloist who sang in Spanish ...

      ... raised the siege. Seeing Charlemagne's army leave the plain in front of the city, Lady Carcas, elated by the success of her stratagem, decided to ring all the bells of the city. One of the men of Charlemagne then exclaimed: "Carcas sonne!" (which means “Carcas rings”). Hence the name of the city. Unfortunately, Lady Carcas appears to be fictional, and this legend was written down sometime in the 16th century.

      ... journey even if it was very typical of every other medieval town,
      including San Marino and Mont San Michel. It made a pleasant end to
      the day and the end of the holiday. We dined outside yet again, in a
      small square jammed full of dining tables from at least four
      restaurants. We finally wandered back to the hotel, well after
      darkness had fallen, admiring the flood-lit ancient city walls.

The fortifications, consisting of two lines of walls and a castle, which is itself surrounded by fortifications, extend over a total length of 3 km. Their line largely follows that of the Roman defences, and these are clearly visible over two-thirds of the total ...
