Located in the heart of the Medieval Citadel of Carcassonne, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Hotel de la Cité offers a unique experience to each of its guests.

As the evening draws near and the last daytime visitors wander away, a magical atmosphere settles over the Citadel of Carcassonne. As your footsteps echo on the cobblestones, you will soon discover why Hôtel de la Cité is the ideal place to start exploring this fairytale citadel.

Hotel de la Cité

– ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ –


Built in 1909, Hôtel de La Cité was extended in 1913 and 1927. In the 1920s, it became the stop-over when travelling between Nice and Biarritz or between Biarritz and Barcelone, and thus earned the reputation of becoming a highly fashionable place to meet.
Skilfully combining the greatest comfort with the elegant tradition of the grand hotels, the hotel makes its guests feel at home.

In 2010, the hotel was awarded its fifth star – there are only three such hotels in Languedoc-Roussillon.

In August 2011, the hotel was acquired by Christine Pujol, a native of Aude, and owner of several charming hotels in Carcassonne – thereby opening a new chapter in Hôtel de la Cité’s history, going back over a hundred years.
