The hotel's Web site promises a "cosy, cosy, very cosy" spot, and indeed it is. Opened in 1958, the well-maintained Noga is packed with mementos of the Jazz Age, which include table lamps and black-and-white photographs of the period. There are rooms on four floors for two, three, or four people—larger rooms have sofas great for socializing. You can rent a bike, borrow a book from the library, or even order a picnic lunch to take sightseeing with you. The hotel is in
the popular Béguinage quarter, near the Ste-Catherine fish market.
