Art/Literary - General / Conversation / Greetings / Letters / article on an area in Paris
French term or phrase: ne heures
I think this may be a typo for "en heures" as I can't seem to find any other explanation but would like to check with fellow translators.
It is part of a title which doesn't really help:
"De l'ombre ne heures"
THe section below describes the accommodation of a hotel and their extremely comfortable rooms.
TIA.

night and day / from dawn till dusk


Explanation:
just a wild guess

If they're referring to the rooms alone then it might mean that they're to be enjoyed both night and day. If they're referring to all hotel facilities then from dawn till dusk might do meaning that services are available practically 24 hrs per day.

early hours


Explanation:
De l'ombre ne heures may mean a shadow in the early hours of the day.May be that the hotel is facing east-west when there will be a sunny blaze,which is countered by the greenery around. Just a thought, Helen!

Normally, in hot countries or in places like India, where it is very hot during summers, the hotel building will be surrounded by huge trees which provide shade during all the hours of the day. we could also translate as "the cool rooms,nestling in the shade", perhaps to say that the rooms are cool through out the day even without AC!
