Architect Isay Weinfeld's Sleek New Square Nine Hotel in Belgrade

Square Nine Hotel, Belgrade, SerbiaLand on the website for the new Square Nine Hotel and you’ll see two clocks representing two very different time zones. The link between the two countries half a world a part? The Sao Paulo architect Isay Weinfeld (of Fasano hotels fame), who was enlisted to design this new hideaway. One look inside and hotel junkies will start conspiring for more time to stay and discover the blossoming capital. All limestone and wood, the Square Nine Hotel has a clean, contemporary aesthetic, and is decorated with designer furniture. The first five-star hotel to open in more than 10 years, the Square Nine Hotel is located smack dab in the historic center.

The concept of the hotel was born from the owner’s desire to be part of Belgrade’s renovation impressing a luxurious but more familiar character to the city, where in the last two decades only big hotels from international chains, not committed to the city’s identity, came to sight,” says the architect. Rooms are reportedly the largest in town and come with Hermes bath products, Pratesi towels and robes, Nespresso machines, and free wifi. What we love: the spa’s swimming pool and hammam, cuisine (served al fresco) by chef Goran Kovacevic, and a beautiful bar filled with coffee table books and antique globes.
