    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Montmorency Carcassonne

    Nice, clean, perfect location

    from

    We had a room in the Annex which was extremely clean and comfortable. Decor is lovely, our ground floor room opened onto a little patio. Good bed & linens, great shower. Ample secured parking. The location cannot be beat, right outside one of the gates to the city. Gracious hosts, and we loved the house cat & dog. One computer in the lobby with free internet. The hotel sign is a bit deceiving, we drove by the first time because it said "the Chateau" in big letters and "montmorency" in small letters underneath, just FYI. We would definitely stay here again, very comfortable.

    Clean, convenient but pokey!

    from

    We shared a room in the annexe (across the road from the main hotel) with our son, but even the two of us alone would have struggled not to get in each other's way in the very small room. One of us would have to duck into the bathroom to make way for another! Thankfully the hotel's convenient position from which to explore La Cite meant we walked out all day long!

    Breakfast was always a bit frantic...there didn't seem to be sufficient staff to cope with the steady flow of residents...typical of this type of hotel I guess!

    However, the hotel was clean, the staff were very friendly indeed, and the location was excellent. Overall very good value (but it helps if you are very small!)

    I think our 2 night stay could have been condensed into 1. Interesting as La Cite is, there is a real excess of commercialism.

    Location Second to None

    from

    Excellent location across the road from the Old City.Plain but filling breakfast that could be taken inside or on the terrace.After reading previous reviews we booked a superior room which had it's own terrace and overlooked the partially hidden swimming pool. Pleaseant reception area and staff. The lack of a restaraunt was not an issue given the choices available across the road in the old city. We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

    Great hotel in prime location

    from

    This hotel is in an ideal location for spending time in and around the old city as it is right next door to the main gate. The lovely garden and small swimming pool provided a welcome break in the heat of the day. Everything is clean and well maintained and the staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. The breakfasts were good and could be taken on the terrace or in the nicely furnished bar area. The mid-ranged bedrooms are small and set across the road in a separate building but were air-conditioned and clean. There is no restaurant but you are only five minutes walk from all the restaurants and bars within the city walls. We loved it and will definitely be going back again.

    Very good experience, great location

    from

    Very pleasant hotel, with nice grounds, at a good price. Location is excellent, really just outside La Cite, although others (eg Espace, Aragon) are less than 100 yards away. Service lovely, breakfasts fine (not a gastronomic delight, but a good start to the day). The Classic room we were in was quite small but I've stayed in smaller - it was fine for a long weekend. Outdoor swimming pool and jacuzzi were open in late March and an excellent bonus, if a chilly walk (across a small road) from the annex the cheaper rooms are in. Staff all charming and pets adorable!

    Ideally situated

    from

    Lovely family run hotel perfectly located near the medieval cite. Rooms were spotlessly clean and nicely decorated if not a little small. We went in early september and had some lovely weather, we enjoyed sitting in the hotel's garden overlooking the old fortress...Bliss.

    Great Hotel

    from

    We stayed at the hotel last week. It is next to the wall. People at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. We had our room in the new section across the street. Our room was small but clean and comfortable for sleep. Room was nicely decorated. Breakfast consisted of bread, Jam, butter, sweets, juice and coffee. I will stay there again.

    Take care ...

    from

    Be careful with the reservation's conditions ... with the features of "classic rooms ". I stayed one night in one of them and was a bad taste experience, without A.C. very old and bad furnitures safety null... a shame, no seriuosly, in resume a bad experience.

    Great hotel - Excellent value for money

    from

    This hotel is very nice. The pool area is very nice. The overall appearance of the hotel is good. The parking is secure. The location - next to La Cite is great and the staff are all very friendly and helpful. They even have free broadband internet access for residents to use which I think is an excellent feature especially if you are going elsewhere from here.

    The only reason that I won't give it 5/5 is that we stayed in one of the very cheapest "classic" rooms. It wasn't featured on any of the photos on their website and was very small. a problem when you have a lot of luggage like we did. The room was also looking a bit tired.

    That aside though this hotel is highly recommended.

    A Great Location!

    from

    When you visit Carcassonne, be sure to check out the Montmorency. It's located right outside the main entrance to la Cite, and their rates are extremely competitive. Comfortable rooms are available both in the original building and a newer facility across the street. The garden and pool are absolutely beautiful. Service was extremely courteous.

    I fell asleep last night to the sounds of cheering and music in the square.

    We were out of the hotel by 8:15 and on our way. Virginie gave a talk about the French education system using Anne-Sophie as a student. The only requirement for a child to start school is that he or she be potty trained, so one-third of French kids go to the …

    I am about to head to Toulouse to get my plane to fly to Paris and then change planes to fly to Athens, arriving there at 10:45 pm local time on Friday - ten hours later than Seattle. I took a last walk in La Fage this morning, packed up my stuff (too much not clothing stuff!). ...

Thursday morning Nancy and I completed my Cathar pilgrimage by driving to Montsegur, the last mountaintop refuge for about 500 surviving Cathars. But the final battle of the Albigensian Crusade at Montsegur in 1244 ended in over 200 unrepentant Cathars being chained and burned at the stake for heresy. We passed the site of the burning at the bottom ...

Carl took the pigeons back to the cooler in the car and Nancy and I checked out a few stores. No time to try on clothes - but in addition to a few kitchen items we each purchased Four for Forty (euros) reading glasses - since I tend to lose them perhaps these will last me until ...

    Carcasonne Our trip to Carcassonne was not as we had planned or expected. We knew something was up when we were still in a large queue at the ticket control barrier when our train was due to leave. Then there was a mad rush to the train to find our correct carriage to discover that we could not find our reserved seats but that is train travel in France. Anyway to cut a long story short, flooding had caused havoc with the trains and so we ended up taking a Spanish train to the border, ...
