Ik Mablis

Hotel known as the Ik Mablis, a large and largely derelict dosshouse on Quisling Hok

'So so so so,' said Atlanta, absent-mindedly studying the walls of the Ik Mablis.
The Ik Mablis, the building rising beyond the wasteland, was the largest and cheapest hotel in Lexis. It was a groaning dosshouse which sheltered whores, anarchists, signpainters, distressed alcoholics, a good many of the Gan, and impoverished pilgrims. Its third storey was topped by a flat roof, onto which Atlanta look down. From that roof there flew the flags of the Contingent of the Greater Demons, and there flew also (and with less ceremony) the washing of the denizens of the Ik Mablis.
A woman came onto the roof with a basket of fresh laundry, and began hanging it up in the morning sunshine. Atlanta was reminded that she had work of her own to do. [WoH Ch5]
