The Student Hotel is coming to Florence, Italy!
Adding to its seven-strong portfolio of properties, The Student Hotel has purchased one of Florence’s most iconic centrally-located buildings. The nearly 20,000-square meter property was part of the gigantic urban reorganization designed by Giuseppe Poggi in 1864, prior to Florence becoming Italy’s capital city. Originally built for diplomatic needs, it was used for many years as a public office space. The Student Hotel Firenze will open in 2017 to breathe new life into an area that has never belonged to the public. Thanks to the investment, it will become a pulsating corner of a lively international city.
The Student Hotel Firenze will maintain its 19th Century facade but will be fully refurbished inside, mirroring the successful template established in the Netherlands. Contemporary architecture will frame the hotel and students’ rooms and studios, with a library, study areas, meeting and conference rooms, an incubator for start-ups, a games room, gym and bicycle fleet; every resident student is entitled to ride a VAMOOF design bike for free.
