Hôtel de la Cité is located in the heart of the medieval citadel of Carcassonne. It is perfectly placed to explore the region’s Cathar castles, the lush vineyards of the Languedoc-Roussillon province and the Canal du Midi, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Each of the 47 guestrooms and 13 suites are furnished and decorated with more than a dash of aristocratic style. Several of the rooms and suites have terraces allowing panoramic views of Carcassonne, while others offer vistas of the charming cobbled streets of the citadel.

Former Castle Hotel
Hôtel de La Cité was initially built in 1909 and its premises were extended in 1913 and 1927. In the 1920s, it became a stop-over for those travelling between Nice and Biarritz or between Biarritz and Barcelona. The hotel was closed during the WWII and reopened in 1945. During the 1950s, it was at the height of its glory but it started declining in the 1960s, with the restaurant closing in 1969 and the hotel itself in 1987. Two years later, in 1989, it reopened under new ownership, but in 1997 Hôtel de la Cité changed hands once again. It was entirely renovated from 1998 to 2001 and the two existing hotels, the four-star Hôtel de la Cité and the three-star Hôtel Dame Carcas were merged into a single luxury hotel. In August 2011, the hotel was acquired by Christine Pujol, an owner of several charming hotels in Carcassonne, thereby opening a new chapter in the hotel's history.
