Square Nine Hotel is located in Belgrade’s historic quarter, across from Students Square. Its architecture, of remarkably modern language, does not clash with or overshadow its neighboring buildings’. Just the contrary: it follows their scale, the rhythm of their façade (set by the modulation of the openings) and even the moderate hues of their color palette.
On the ground level, the common area are ample and integrated, such as the lobby, the restaurant and a little piazza witch succeed one another. On the basement level, a swimming pool haloed by a beam of natural light is succeeded by a gym, spa and sauna, while on the top floor a small bar overlooks the square across the street. The rooms are split into 3 categories – 32 m2 or 47 m2 double room, and 90 m2 suites – taking up 5 levels of the building and totaling 45 units. Each floor features a different hall adjacent to the lifts, with unique and unexpected pieces of furniture.
The ambience is that of low-key eloquence and coziness. The choice of materials (wood, stone and leather), as well as the furnishings (a varied selection of vintage pieces, by Scandinavian and North Amercan designers, dating from the 1930s to the 1960s) contribute to this understated mood, at once elegant, plain and unpretentious.Location: Belgrade, Serbia
