Best location for one night stay
Save

Hello, we are looking to spend a night in Carcassonne. We will be travelling by train and will have kids and luggage. Are we better to stay near the train station to we can easily walk to and from our hotel/station on arrival and departure? Or should we stay closer to the old town and use a taxi to get from and to the station? Most of the hotels near the old town seem at least a 1/2 hour walk from the station according to google maps, which would probably take us longer with luggage and little legs. We are a family of 5 so not sure whether we would need 2 taxis. Thanks for any help!

Spend the money on the taxi and stay within the fortified walls of the old cite. That is why you are there, after all.

We stayed at the Hotel Montmorency, just across from the gate to the old Cite. What an amazing view of the walls to wake up to.
