With history dating back over 100 years, there is no place more apropos to enjoy the medieval charm of the Carcassone citadel. From quaint cobblestones to five star service, Hotel de la Cite fits right in to the fairytale landscape of travel with Ker & Downey.

Property Details

Since its construction in 1909, Hotel de la Cite has been on a constant trajectory toward its five star luxury status. Over the years glamorous travelers have stopped in, with the expectation of contextual charm and top-level service.

This blend of hominess and elegance gives Hotel de la Cite its unique appeal in Carcassone. It belongs to the Accor Hotel’s MGallery collection, a standout selection of hotels with as much history as they have luxury.

The Hotel de la Cite has 59 rooms, each appointed with contemporary French furnishings and linens. The understated elegance is guided by local artisans to ensure a local touch and authentic connection to the regional taste. Ker & Downey always places our clients in junior suites or better, to ensure that the best views and amenities are available day and night. At the Hotel de la Cite, we recommend the terraced deluxe suites. Guests can unwind on their private deck with a view of either the adjacent rampart or the hotel gardens. Recline and look out over the city for a visual excursion that lasts long after you’ve retired for the evening.

The hotel restaurant, La Barbacane, celebrates the fine dining traditions of France. Find sustainably-sourced ingredients artfully crafted under the expert vision of Chef Jérôme Ryon and pastry chef Régis Chanel. Stop in to the Library Bar for an after dinner cocktail mixed and poured by the hotel’s master barman.

The Cinq Mondes spa continues the hotel’s signature attention to craft and detail. Stemming from a collection of plant-based skin care products and ancient recipes, the treatments at Cinq Mondes restore balance without the use of petrochemicals. The treatment rooms, which include aquatherapies, connect to the outdoor pool for a seamless experience.

The quaint surrounds are ideal for strolling, and along with your Ker & Downey guide, the hotel concierge can provide recommendations and guidance for whatever whims strike guests in the moment.
