Charming two-room bed and breakfast with friendly, available hosts

An intimate, delightful bed and breakfast on a pleasant street of row houses, Le Quartier Sonang offers two bright and airy rooms with plush beds, artwork, seating, and balconies.

Rooms

Bright, airy, and spacious rooms with plush beds and free Wi-Fi

The two rooms at Le Quartier Sonang are bright -- both have huge windows -- airy, and spacious, and measure about 270 square feet each. They're homey and attractive, with wood floors, rich print accents (such as rugs and bed throws), and thoughtful artwork; they look like the guestrooms of a sophisticated world traveler who decorated with items picked up around the globe. Rooms come with free Wi-Fi, mini-fridges, Nespresso machines, and flat-screen TVs with built-in DVD players. Each room has daily housekeeping, a private bathroom with walk-in shower, and and balcony. Bedding is made of ecologic materials and is extra plush, with thick mattresses, cotton mattress covers, and goose-down mattress toppers.

Features

Delicious free breakfast and engaging hosts

The ample free breakfast at Le Quartier Sonang is delivered to the rooms and includes croissants, fresh bread, cheese, fruit, coffee, yogurt, juice, and more. Like most small bed and breakfasts, Quartier Sonang lacks the facilities of a hotel -- there's no pool, fitness center, business center, or restaurant -- but the gracious hosts provide thoughtful extras, such as flowers and helpful tourist information.
