Designed to bring communities together – just in time for the world to reunite – The Student Hotel (TSH) has announced that it will open a new hotel in what is fast-becoming the hotel development hub of Europe, Rome.

With the acquisition of the historical Ex Dogana site in the area of San Lorenzo, Rome, TSH Group’s investment in the Italian market now totals more than €450m. The new hotel, which will be designed Engeko, with architecture from Fantoni, will be located in one of the most authentic districts of Rome and is the perfect fit for TSH’s spirit of life-long learning and experimentation: the neighbourhood hosts one of the largest universities and student communities in Europe, and is home to a diversity of artists and artisans.

“We are very excited to have signed this deal and cannot wait to open our doors in what is perhaps the most famous city in the world, Rome,” explained Charlie MacGregor, CEO and founder, The Student Hotel. “We started our adventure in Italy with our first hotel in Florence in 2018 and last October we successfully opened TSH Bologna despite difficult COVID times. Needless to say, with three more hotels in the pipeline, we love Italy! We look forward to bring our philosophy of community to Rome and to make a positive impact to the neighbourhood of San Lorenzo.”

Bringing an investment of close to €90m to the city of Rome, TSH San Lorenzo involves the development of 21,000 sqm of hybrid facilities. This includes 444 rooms for students, hotel guests and young professionals, as well as spaces for co-working, meetings and events where guests from all walks of life can meet and connect. Moreover, the project envisages plenty of green areas and areas dedicated to sports, events and recreational activities which will be fully open and accessible to the public.

“This investment shows our confidence on the strong positive outlook of the Italian market and of such an important city as Rome, despite the difficult moment we are currently living in”, says Edoardo Volpi, Head of Investments Italy, The Student Hotel. “Our aim is to bring our positive contribution to the already undergoing urban and cultural regeneration process and become an integral part of the community.”

At the signing at the Notary participated Andrea Tota, Head of Real Estate Development Italy, The Student Hotel: “We hope to inspire positive regeneration for San Lorenzo, elevating this high-potential area of Rome to its full potential.”

Meanwhile, the hotel group’s pipeline of new properties includes Madrid, San Sebastian, Barcelona Provencal, Paris La Villette, Toulouse, Lisbon Carcavelos, Porto, Rome, Turin, and a further Florence location. Opening in the coming years, the pipeline represents circa. 6,000 additional rooms.

In five years, the hotel brand plans to open properties in Lisbon, Paris, Barcelona, Porto and a third hotel Florence…

The Student Hotel (TSH) has unveiled plans to expand its European portfolio to 65 properties within the next five years. At the grand opening of TSH Florence Lavagnini, its first Italian hotel, the group confirmed five new site acquisitions, which include Lisbon, Paris, Barcelona, Porto, plus a third Florence location.

TSH’s vision for an international Complete Connected Community of co-living and co-working students, leisure and long-stay professional guests, takes a monumental leap forward with Florence Lavagnini, its stunning new flagship, hybrid-hospitality concept.

“Our fully flexible, hybrid model is the first to cater for the needs of hotel guests, students, entrepreneurs, young professionals and locals under one roof,” said Charlie MacGregor, TSH founder and CEO. “In five years we aim to have 65 locations secured across Europe, 26,000 rooms and close to one million square meters of shared space. Our new TSHLIFE app and digital platform will connect nearly a million current and former co-living and co-working guests.

“We will continue to disrupt the industry and offer future generations a hybrid home away from home. We will always listen to them, to evolve and adapt our offering, which will ensure we grow a hospitality company that always has one foot in the future.”

Located in the heart of the Tuscan capital, TSH Lavagnini is a €50 million regeneration of an historic palazzo, nicknamed The Sleepy Palace by locals. Contemporary design, inspired by the Memphis movement, sees classic architecture now boast modern twists, such as a supersized graffiti installation in the central courtyard, a rooftop “The Beach is Boring” pool, a skybar and two terraces with breathtaking vistas of the city, the Duomo, and the Tuscan hills.

TSH Florence Lavagnini will soon be joined by four sister hotels:

TSH Florence Manifattura Tabacchi
Manifattura Tabacchi will be the third TSH project in Florence and its fifth in Italy. This development, part of the largest regeneration site in Tuscany spearheaded by AERMONT Capital and CDP Immobiliare, will create a new urban community outside of the historic city center.

The former tobacco factory, near Piazza Puccini in the northwest of the city, will receive a €200m investment to create a 100,000-sq-meter complex with its own piazza covered by a transparent roof, that features a vibrant mix of food market, artisan shopping, co-working spaces, events and exhibition venues. TSH, along with international fashion and design institute Polimoda, are the first organizations signed-up to the project.

TSH Florence Manifattura Tabacchi will have 318 rooms, communal spaces including lounge and games areas, rooftop pool, outside courtyard, restaurant, gym, study areas and bike rental. The 14,500-sq-meter site is due to open in 2021.

TSH’s first Italian project, Florence Lavagnini, opened on 7 June 2018. The second Florence hotel, Belfiore, will open in 2020 with 652 rooms. Bologna will open with 361 rooms in 2019 and Rome in 2020 with 481 rooms. TSH plans to have more than 10 Italian properties open, in development or secured by 2023.

TSH in Portugal
TSH will land in Portugal with two locations. The group’s first beachside property is located in Carcavelos, opposite the new Nova Business School campus and directly on the seafront of Portugal’s best surf spot at Carcavelos, just 15-minutes from Lisbon.

The area is booming with start-ups and incubators that will soon be home to a large business center and new Google offices. The 435-room hotel will be developed in partnership between TSH and Stone Capital and opens in 2021. It will house a large TSH Collab co-working area, rooftop pools, extensive terraces and open spaces, sport and yoga studios, and a restaurant.

The group has also secured an amazing city center location In Porto where it will open with 300 rooms in 2020.

Expansion of TSH in Paris and Barcelona
TSH is close to securing sites for a second location in Paris, a 300-room hotel within the Peripherique that is expected to open in 2020.

A new location is also planned for Barcelona, a 300-room property with 3,000-sq-meters of Collab co-working space. It will be the second new TSH in Spain (Madrid opens in 2019). They complement two TSH Campus-branded, student-only residences in Barcelona at Marina and Poble Sec.
