Traditionally styled furniture and hardwood floors give this small hotel plenty of shabby-chic charm, but its best selling point is its location right on rue St-Denis, among the Latin Quarter's trendy restaurants, movie theaters, and poutine joints. Budget travelers mingle on the front terrace, watching the street traffic. Some rooms open onto a narrow, brick-paved terrace. The continental breakfast buffet goes way beyond the call of duty, with boiled eggs, ham, fresh
fruit, bagels, and cereal. It's served in a pleasant, stone-walled dining room in the basement.
