The solid, unpretentious Novotel offers good value and location for the money. The traditional lobby comes with bar, gift shop and liveried concierge hustling theatre tickets; the bedrooms are simple and well kitted out. There is a dearth of style, but it is reliable and well run. The breakfast buffet cuts no corners; if you're still peckish, the historic St Lawrence Market is nearby. The staff at this European chain are multilingual; try out your rusty Danish or Russian and they will be up to the job.
