Le Donjon – Les Remparts


This hotel is INSIDE the fortified Cité of Carcassonne, which gives you a great opportunity to spend time there after all the day trippers and bus tours have gone home. And this is a best Western, which is a cut above the Ibis but with all the same familiarity. And it has free WiFi.

Hôtel de la Cité by Orient-Express


This one is also inside the Cité walls, and is a good alternative to Le Donjon. It’s a bit more upscale, and it has a Michelin-starred restaurant on the premises. If you’re looking for a weekend splurge out of Paris in one of the most evocative locations in all of France, this is your hotel. They also have some great deals, so check in the off season.

Hôtel Des Trois Couronnes


While staying inside the Cité is a great experience, some find that being on the outside looking at its imposing walls and turrets is better. If that sounds good, then this hotel is your best bet. It’s got a great view – even from the indoor pool!
