A Long Way for Disappointment: Boston to Verdun Posted 12-Aug-2014
We were so looking forward to staying at the infamous Coq Hardi. However it was extremely disappointing. Our initial reservation from Expedia noted a full bed and our room had only two tiny standard beds. On arrival the receptionist made us feel we were a bother rather than a customer. The interior hallways were as dark as tomb, day or night. The toilet was electrically powered and required all kinds of unusual noises and gyrations to work.The phone, internet, and television did not work. When we mentioned the need for these, one remark was the "boom boom did it", referring to lightening storm that night. And another staff admitted in broken English "it is the only room without power, sorry, the box is not working." She also informed us there was not another room available. It appears this was the weekend staff because at check out, the apparent supervisor was shocked and responded to our disappointment by refunding 57 euros. But unfortunately it was trying to shine a sneaker on a very disappointing experience. We could not, in good conscience, recommend this hotel to anyone.
