Travellers' Choice
Bob W’s apartments are the smartest alternative to hotels and random rentals. Every night is climate-neutral and double carbon offset. Get everything needed to live, work and play for as long as you want. Fully equipped kitchens, private saunas, balconies, laundry, keyless access, fast WiFi, local gym access, 24/7 support, and regular professional cleaning – you name it. It is also possible to request early check-in and late check-out. When you stay with Bob, you’re getting an authentic taste of the local neighbourhood. This classy 1902 Jugendstil building on Helsinki’s Central Railway Square was renovated in 2021. Each apartment is decked out with Finnish furniture from brands like Hakola, Artek and custom pieces from Studio Joanna Laajisto, who designed the apartments. Each apartment is powered by 100% renewable energy and has recycling, limited single-use plastic and biodegradable toiletries. Our smart apartment management system lets you set the perfect mood lighting and temperature while reducing energy consumption by 11%. The smart management system provider does not collect or store any kind of information that could identify you and absolutely no audio, video or photos.

Location is very central. Additionally the apartment is clean, well maintained. Provides everything you need for a comfortable stay including a full kitchen, washer/dryer combo, additionally they provide a lot of little things including laundry detergent, first aid kit, yoga mat, gym access, chrome cast, even charging cable, camera, and a tote bag you can use while you’re there. Stayed in an apartment with its own sauna, which was wonderful to use after sightseeing out in the cold.

Apartment is nice and clean, close to railway station, can walk, catch tram or even metro into city. Can explore underground route if in bad weather. Free gym is very close, just across the road. Good choice

Vilnius, Lithuania57 contributions32 helpful votes
Not my format. Even their partners’ breakfasts are simply terrible; I was with a child and didn’t know what to feed him. It's not a bob issue, but the cafes chosen as partners are just terrible. In the apartment itself everything is simple - even too simple. The bathroom does not have a proper door to the shower. Maybe this is normal for Finland, but the whole bathroom was wet every time I took a shower. As a result, all the furniture in the bathroom is in bad condition. Also very noisy radiators. It was general heating, but according to the standards, the noise from the radiators is above 40 decibels, which greatly interferes with sleep. I don't know about other guests, but for me it was a problem. Room cleaning is poor, I found someone's dishes in the cupboard above the sink, which means they were left there by previous guests. The only good thing is the location and the fact that the luggage room was open even after check-out.

Hi Viktor, thank you so much for your feedback! It goes a long way in helping us get things right. I’m sorry to hear about the radiators and our breakfast offers, and I’ll get someone on that right away. Thank you for staying with us, and I hope to host you again at one of my apartments all over Europe. Best, Bob W.

Really enjoyed the spacious but cosy well kept apartment that helped my family and I feel at home in Helsinki. The check in process was also very smooth despite it being a no-contact / digital check in. Bob W Helsinki has a luggage storage room fyi!! Did not know this and ended up paying for early check-in.
