Italy: Ennismore, under the 25hours Hotels brand, is set to open a 160-room property in Trieste, Italy in 2025.
Owned by P.V.V Investments S.R.L., an affiliate of JP Immobilien, the Palazzo Compartimentale in Piazza Vittorio Veneto is set to be transformed into a 25hours hotel.
The property will include a restaurant opening onto the piazza, a bar and cafe, a wellness area on the roof terrace, a cinema, meeting rooms, and a 25hours beach club – a first for the brand.
Renovations have already begun on the facade of the building. The project will also be home to luxury residences and a variety of retail stores on the ground floor.
When complete, it will mark the second opening in Italy for 25hours following Florence last year. The brand currently has 14 operating hotels across Europe and the Middle East, with four in the pipeline including Copenhagen later this year.
KNSA Hospitality will operate the hotel. The group currently operates through lease agreements 22 hotels in Europe that are managed by Ennismore.
Steffen Fox, CEO of KNSA Hospitality said: “Looking back at our very successful partnership at the 25hours hotel in Vienna, we are very proud to be able to realise this wonderful project together with our well-known partners from Vienna and Ennismore. We are convinced that we can create a very exciting destination and we are grateful that we have been given the opportunity to introduce Trieste to travellers from all over the world.”
Cédric Gobilliard, brand COO of Ennismore said: “We’re so excited that 25hours will bring a fresh hospitality approach to Trieste. With its rich culture and history, Trieste will serve as the perfect location for one of our uniquely designed 25hours Hotels, which will take its inspiration from the history of the city as gateway to the world. The lifestyle segment of the hospitality industry is seeing strong growth and is bouncing back quicker, thanks to its strong F&B offering.”
Daniel Jelitzka, managing director of JP Immobilien said: “25hours is an innovative and locally based hotel concept that will have a positive impact on the immediate neighbourhood as well as on Trieste as a whole. The low-threshold nature of the concept ensures that not only guests but also locals will meet and feel comfortable here.
“Special attention will also be paid to the integration of the Piazza Vittorio Veneto in front of it,” Jelitzka added. “The development of Piazza Vittorio Veneto represents the first strategic step of further investments in Trieste and Northern Italy.”
