We are three friends who have travelled together for the first time and this was perfect for visiting Carcassonne. The airport bus dropped us off within 100 meters and we were greeted by Vanessa who told us all about the apartment. The apartment is a stone's throw from the old cite and was very quiet, despite being next to a hotel (we were there just out of season - at the end of October). I wouldn't imagine it would be a noisy place even at peak times. Lovely patio at the front to enjoy the afternoon sun.
The beds were very comfortable and we had all the basics that we needed. It was a good price for the location and the room - a much better option than a hotel in my opinion. The only thing that you need to clarify when you book is about the linen cost and the cleaning charge, as they are separate payments and you are expected to leave the house spotless if you don't want a cleaner, ready for the next people. There was some confusion for us over this, but it was sorted out very quickly. Also, I loved the towels, because I don't like them when they are too soft, but if you prefer a soft towel then take your own.
The tapas bar - L'escargot - in the old town was fabulous!
