During the hectic time of Vinexpo (in Bordeaux) and The Blues Passion festival (in Cognac), there is almost impossible to find any accommodation in this part of France. This hotel has a very good location only a two minutes walk from the heart of Cognac; Place de Francois 1er. This hotel is old, and not in very healthy shape; The shower must be hold by yourself, the characteristic black mushroom that appreciate old hotel bathroom was very happy with the lack of ventilation, the venetian blind outside of the windows has taken their last sleep (permanently down, and not possible to open). The room was not especially clean (very dusty on all surfaces, the bed and the toilets looks clean). No working TV, no minibar, extremely poor internet connection (switched between slow and non-working), and no secure fire escape route from the room on the top on the top of the roof. Refill of toilet paper only by request. Very simple breakfast (dry bread, one slice of ham per person, but on the other side; fresh baked croissants with a selections of confiture). The reception is closed from 9 PM. Why don't I give this hotel a lower score than 2 out of 5? I didn't expect much more at this price, and I was so happy to find an hotel during this awful hectic week.
