Expert review of Le 9 Hôtel
Le Neuf was totally redone in 2008 by a design team from Barcelona, after being bought by a Spanish hotel group, and they've injected modern comfort and agreeably understated sense of style. There's nothing spectacular here but it's fresh and welcoming and feels like a true find.
Hidden on a small street in a gentrifying part of the 9th, where residential apartments mix with wholesalers and small industrial workshops. It's very convenient for Gare du Nord and Gare de l'Est stations, an easy walk to the Grands Boulevards. Square Montholon, almost the only patch of greenery in this part of town is at the end of the street.
35 rooms, including 7 larger superior rooms, feature lots of wood, marked out by the striking black plank wall behind the bed, wood floors and desk and bright, graphic curtains. Most rooms have showers, the superiors have a bath.
A pleasant lounge area with colourful armchairs, an internet computer for guests' use and books and magazines to browse.
Buffet breakfast in a vaulted stone cellar and help yourself tea or coffee all day long.
Bilingual staff look efficient behind a black marble reception desk.
A typical mix characterised by French business travellers and Spanish tourists.
