Italy: 25hours Hotel Company will open a 173-room hotel in Florence, Italy in early summer 2020.

Set on the Piazza San Paolino, close to Piazza di Santa Maria Novella, the hotel has been designed by interior and product designer Paola Navone and architects Genius Loci Architettura.

The 25hours Hotel Piazza San Paolino will "celebrate the wanderings of the exiled Dante Alighieri, with The Divine Comedy as the basis for its storytelling".

While the local architecture firm will take care of renovating the three existing buildings and integrating them into a single complex, Paola Navone will add her own creative hallmark to the hotel combining the traditional with the contemporary.

The listed group of buildings in the Tuscan capital spans an area of 10,750 square metres.

25hours Hotel Company was founded in 2005 by Stephan Gerhard, Ardi Goldman, Christoph Hoffmann and Kai Hollmann, and today operates 13 hotels in German-speaking countries as well as in Paris. 2020 will also see an opening in Dubai. The 25hours Hotel Company formed a strategic alliance with AccorHotels in 2016, and now also pursues hotel projects around the globe.
