This next-generation concept from The Social Hub is part of the hybrid hospitality leader’s strategy to elevate its offering as it continues to grow its footprint across Europe. A number of ‘premium rooms’ are currently piloted and available for booking at The Social Hub Amsterdam City. Following this, over the coming years the design will be gradually adapted and rolled out across the entire portfolio with the brand’s diverse community in mind. Once completed, travellers, students, business professionals, digital nomads and more will be able to choose from elevated room options tailored for their specific needs.

“After much research done to understand exactly what our varied guest profiles are really looking for, we’ve landed on a new room concept that represents the evolution of our brand’s design experience,” commented Marion Koopman, The Social Hub’s Chief Operations & Commercial Officer. “Our approach aims to transport guests from ‘we’ community-centric spaces to a ‘me’ zone featuring a more sophisticated and values-driven experience. With this rollout we will also align our hubs to a higher category competitive set which we are aiming to move towards”.

Seamlessly blending comfort, functionality and style the new premium room concept being piloted has been designed to be a calming and functional private space within The Social Hub Amsterdam City. A place where guests can take a break from socialising with our vibrant community and refresh, recharge and dream.

The premium room features include plenty of hybrid utility space for two guests to lounge, work & play, along with an extra comfy king-size bed and choice of high-quality pillows, plush chairs and tables to work, study or relax. The spacious bathroom with rain shower & double sink, features Zenology clean cosmetics. It is all about clever solutions designed for guests to comfortably unwind with the use of warm colour tones, fabrics, wooden floors and dimmable lighting.

Small surprises such as local design touches and even a selection of books tied to The Social Hub’s purpose of ‘together, we create a better society’ include Tal Ben-Shahar’s Happier No Matter What, Rutger Bregman’s Humankind; A Hopeful History, and Elkhart Tolle’s The Power of Now. The new room concept is the result of a more than a year-long process to perfect the offering. This includes basing the design research and insights obtained via internal and external surveys, focus groups with staff and guests, design expert consultancies, and more.

The design is being led by Italy’s Rizoma Architecture alongside a curated selection of partners with shared purpose-driven values such as The Netherlands’ DUM (chairs) & ByBorre (fabrics), and Denmark’s Kvadrat (fabrics).
