Cosmos seems to be high-class, luxury hotel which has deteriorated a little bit.
The hotel is just off the center of Contrexeville, with parking outside.
The rooms are huge - but little is done with the space, so the room feels empy. There is a double bed, an armchair, a long narrow desk with a chair and two nightstands. The bathroom is even more peculiar - in the shower-only version (I stayed in 2 rooms) the bathroom is huge - and the shower stall so cramped you keep banging your elbows on the wall. Who designed this ????
In the bathtub version - all is fine.
The wardrobe is large. There is a flat-screen TV (medium sized) with all inputs. Wifi was fast and worked fine everywhere.
Each room has a small balcony with a nice view.
The hotel amenities are good. There is a well maintained outdoor swimming pool, a small (well, mini-) driving range and putting green (clubs available), a good fitness room and a well equipped kids playroom. There is also a concrete table tennis table around the back and some kids' playground stuff (swings and so on)
Breakfast (buffet) was good - not a great selection of items but a good one, perhaps a 3 or 4 star breakfast.
With a little bit of work this place could become a superb hotel again - but since tourism in the area is declining (fewer visitors to the thermal springs) I figure that won't happen. Faded glory, but excellent value for money if you find a good deal, around 60 eur/night (or get one via the nearby casino).
