The blandest of names gives entirely the wrong impression of this 17-room gem in the Lower City's cute, cobblestoned Sainte-Catherine district. The labor of love of owner-proprietors Michel and Sophie Smeesters, the pristine three-story corner house is a little fantasy world—and "world" is the right word, because each room whimsically interprets a different destination: Bali, China, Tibet, the Congo, Morocco, Kenya, India, Japan, Thailand… And those Smeesters have style! This is no cheesy conceit. Instead, it's the kind of place you need to book half a year ahead because of its returning fans—many of whom still mourn the adjacent restaurant, La Truite d'Argent, which the Smeesters closed in 2003 to concentrate on the hotel. Or maybe they're too busy ferrying guests to and from the airport—their transfer service is a good deal.
