With international travel returning, many destinations are gearing up for an increase in travelers, with Italy among them. This month marks the official launch of the new 25hours Hotel Piazza San Paolino, located in the heart of Florence’s Santa Maria Novella district. 25hours Hotel’s first property in Italy, it blends culture with creativity and community, drawing international visitors and locals alike.


The property is set in an authentic, but lesser-known neighborhood in an Italian city best known for its rich culture. The 25hours Hotel Piazza San Paolino is set across the entire block between the elegant Via de Fossi and the popular Via Palazzuolo. The design of the hotel is eclectic.


“25hours Hotel Piazza San Paolino is not your traditional hotel — it is a whimsical oasis in the heart of Florence,” commented Bart Spoorenberg, general manager, 25hours Hotel Piazza San Paolino. “Inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy, our property brings a fresh vision to our beautiful city.”


This charming property is set in the former premises of the Monte de ‘Pegni, the lending company of Cassa di Risparmido di Firenze. The hotel offers two unique styles of guestrooms: one themed Inferno, which features intense red tones, and the other Paradiso, which embraces coole, ethereal colors. The hotel offers a total of 171 accommodations, with 66 set in the original monastery next to the church of San Paolino. The remaining guestrooms are in a new area and feature balconies.


Guests seeking more privacy and optimal space, check out Casetta del Giardino, a small apartment building with a private garden and pool.
