Decided to take a walk after breakfast through the Bastide and up to the Gare and the Canal du Midi.
The Canal du Midi runs for 240km from the River Garonne at Toulouse via Carcassonne to the Mediterranean at Agde. Work on the canal began in 1667 and took 14 years to complete, using tens of thousands of workers. Today, the canal remains a …
Breakfast at hotel before setting out for the castle across the Pont Vieux. Got the tourist tram at the top (€7 each) for a tour around the outside of the citè. Had a stroll around afterwards and bought some soap and a tea towel which may come in handy at Ile de Rè. Then we did an audio guided tour of the castle which was very informative ( …
Breakfast at 8.30, today we were back on the road and heading west to Carcassone, we paid Michelle "did I tell you I prefer cash" that old trick, good job that's what we had got. We set the Tom Tom, put the roof down and decided to drive past the Casino and do some of the Grand Prix Circuit, the sun was shinning and there still crowds outside the …
Rennie-brewers stayed here on Jun 3, 2007 during their trip titled: Backpacking in a Mercedes.
We woke up early today and headed to Carcassonne. As we drove through the country side we finally hit the major road and stopped for gas. Due to us not speaking French and the cashier not speaking English, it took a little while, but we did eventually get gas, expresso and croisants for our journey. Also Diane accidentally ended up in the Hommes (mens) restroom of which she made a hasty exit. The drive from ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel des Trois Couronnes Carcassonne
We stayed at the Trois Couronnes for two nights in February. We found it to be a decent, friendly place to stay. We had a fairly large room with twin beds which were very comfortable. The bathroom (separate toilet) was very good, but we were surprised to find no shower curtain over the bath, although the shower itself was excellent. The restaurant has superb views over the old town with its castle, the river, and the surrounding hills. Breakfast here was very good, with freshly squeezed orange juice, and a wide choice of food. On the next floor up, the 5th floor, there is a balcony which they call the 'Belvedere', which has uninterrupted views.
Booked a weekend package, promoted by the tourist board which is basically two nights for the price of one. I got a 'panoramic' view; it was over the river, but as the hotel is semi-circular I had to really crane my neck to see the old city view I was expecting from this hotel's website. The bathroom was nice and modern. Fab, deep bath, which was a godsend as the heating didn't work in my room and it was chuffing freezing. When I complained they grunted and sent me up an extra blanket rather than try to fix the problem.
Even in November this is excellent
'Free' flight to Carcassonne courtesy of Ryanair made this holiday break irresistible and the 3 Couronnes hotel proved an excellent place to stay - clean, unexciting bedroom with very nice (but cold!) bathroom and superb views across the river Aude to the walled city and to the snow-topped Pyrenees. The rather soul-less restaurant could have done with some music to drown the sound of other people chewing but the food was absolutely excellent with service to match. Very good value and if I go to Carcassonne again (a rather tired town out of season but a great centre for exploring this fairly unknown bit of France) I would certainly choose this hotel.
Before booking this hotel in January 2005, using Air Miles, I checked the reviews of the hotel on the Trip Advisor website. Satisfied with the reviews at that date I happily booked. However, when I visited the Trip Advisor website in June/July and having read more up-to-date reviews, I was very concerned about my stay on 22 July, 2005. However, my wife, two teenage sons and myself were very pleasantly surprised. The rooms were very clean and spacious complete with TV. The breakfast room on the 4th floor was very bright and cheerful and the food was very good. The view from the front of the hotel was excellent. The only downside was the external of the hotel - quite shabby. Our rooms were to the back of the hotel so we did not have the good view. On the whole, we were very happy with the hotel.
Never again. Be clean is essencial to me !
Service with internet place too. The air to breath is terrible.
There is nothing close the way I like.
Sorry, but I have to say the true.
My husband and I stayed one night at this hotel on May 2005 and chose a room with a panoramic view to the old city. The only positive of the room was the view, the rest was terrible: the floor and windows were very dirty. We turned the air conditioner on, but it did not cool the room and left the air extremely dry. I would definetely not recommend this hotel to anyone.
Trois Couronnes - excellent location
The Trois Couronnes is in an excellent location for visiting the area, near to the footbridge leading to the old city, easy walking distance to new town shops and restaurants etc and riverside walks. Super views from the restaurant (and rooms on that side) of the old city. Rooms clean but basic. Informal atmosphere, friendly staff.
Best in town. Excellent views over the citadel, comfortable room with balcony. Restaurant on 4th floor with top view and best of French food. Eat here even if you stay somewhere else.
Staff friendly and a relaxed atmosphere, nothing too much trouble and very reasonable prices.
Good hotel - good view
We found this almost by accident - it is on the edge of the new city (near the Pont Vieux) of Carcassone but is not far from the Old City. The best is the view of the Old City if you can get a room on that side - truly spectacular during sunset! The rest of the hotel is pretty standard for a modern 3 star hotel.
We stayed for two nights but only dined there on the second - the hotel restaurant is great and if you like cheese they had the best cheese that I'd come across in France - the rest was, of course, good too!
I'd reccomend dining here even if you don't stay at the hotel.
