Hotel in Stari Grad
Square Nine Hotel is located in Belgrade's pretty old-town neighbourhood Stari Grad, only a few blocks away from the Kalamegdan Park and the Danube, and just across from Students Square (Studentski Trg).
Its architecture, of remarkably modern language, does not clash with or overshadow its neighbouring buildings'. Just the contrary: it follows their scale, the rhythm of their façades (set by the modulation of the openings) and even the moderate hues of their color palette.
On the ground level, the common areas are ample and integrated, such as the lobby, the bar, the restaurant and a little piazza which 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 sqm or 47 sqm double rooms, and 90 sqm suites – taking up 5 levels of the building and totaling 45 units. Each floor features a different hall adjacent to the elevators, 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 American designers, dating from the 1930s to the 1960s) and the many objects purchased at local antique shops and markets, contribute to this warm and understated mood, at once elegant, plain and unpretentious.
