About Bob W

Bob W is a fast-growing tech company providing an authentic 5-star experience to every single guest at scale while leading the world’s transition to sustainable hospitality.

Bob’s apartments cater to the 21st-century traveller who wants it all: the consistent quality of a hotel and the authentic flair of a short-stay rental. We combine the best of both worlds in our climate-neutral apartments in Europe's coolest neighbourhoods. As we expand fuelled by venture capital and investment from top-tier real estate equity firms, we are building the technology to give every guest a local, 5-star experience at scale.
