Inn of Ill Omen

The Inn of Ill Omen is an inn south of the Imperial City (quest-related).

The publican, Manheim Maulhand, buys potions and food while only selling the latter. He will also buy your stolen goods, even if you aren't a member of the Thieves Guild; however, this is only useful after you have obtained the Mercantile skill perks that allow you to barter anything with him and invest in him. The first floor contains the main reception area, consisting of a bar with a counter and a dining room. The guest rooms are both upstairs and downstairs, in the basement Private Quarters accessed through a trap door at the base of the stairs.

The room you can rent is the first on the left upstairs. It contains only a bedroll. The adjacent room is locked with an Average lock, and contains a free bedroll where Minerva sleeps, a chest, and two sacks. The basement offers more spacious and comfortable lodgings consisting of two rooms. The first room is locked with a Hard lock and contains a free double bed, a chest, a set of drawers, and a set of shelves, while the second room is unlocked and contains a free double bed where Rufio sleeps during the related quest, a chest, two sets of drawers, a cupboard, a table, and a bench.
