The Student Hotel Florence Lavagnini

The Social Hub Florence Lavagnini

The Vibe: Colourful, hip and buzzy.

The Area: In a rather anonymous area near the train station, however it is only two stops on the tram from the Duomo, the Uffizi Gallery, and the chic boutiques in Via Tornabuoni are 10 minutes on foot.

The DNA: Part of the Dutch The Social Hub (previously The Student Hotel) co-living, co-working hybrid, the Florence outpost occupies an historic palazzo from 1864 at the edge of the city centre. Interiors feature natural materials such as wood, cork, stone, and leather contrasting against the more industrial metal mesh, ceramic tiles, and resin to create dynamic ‘zones’ (with ping pong tables to musical instruments) for dwellers to come and go as they so wish. A variety of eating and drinking options (including a rooftop poolside bar) are available. Plus there is a panoramic fitness area and a concept store.

Suite-Me-Up: There is a selection of nine room types that will suit every need – from ‘Basic’ right up to ‘Suite’. Fully-equipped and ensuite, they’re modern, colourful, and comfortable with on-point design sensibilities.
