If you think every trip should be inspiring, you’re in the right place. Set in a 19th century palazzo, The Social Hub Florence (formerly The Student Hotel) is a hotel that'll get your imagination going– it's a community hub for the bold and the brilliant to create, collaborate, and everything in between.

The Social Hub Florence is the perfect base for anything from a short city break to an extended stay. Amidst boundary-blurring spaces, you'll mix and mingle with locals, tourists, students and entrepreneurs – all as passionate about the city as you are. Step outside, and you'll find excellent transport links close by - the city centre is just a five-minute walk away. Or stay in the hub, beat your friends at ping-pong in the play spaces or take a dip in the rooftop pool with a view over Firenze's orange-tiled domes and roofs.
