We stayed at Bob W city center, and had a nice time in Helsinki with our 3 year old daughter. Very central location, close to the harbor, central station, shipping, trams to go anywhere and so on. Would recommend this kind of commendation for families!

Bob W. was perfect for our visit to Helsinki. The space was very large, and had everything we needed. Plenty of personal touches, and a very comfortable space. The room was very clean, and you also had access to a stove, fridge, and microwave which is great to prepare your own food. Also, this location can't be beat!

The location is perfect. Room has everything you need for a long or short stay. My room was spacious, clean and quiet. Bed was comfortable and I really loved the small details like water bottles, tote bag and instax camera that you can use during your stay. It's also really convenient that they have a luggage room.

The location is great and they have great apartments with enough space. Some apartments have a sauna which is a great addition. Their kitchens are good and well-equipped. They offer a great welcoming package, shopping bags, swag, yoga mats, a camera, etc. That is awesome! Also, it was Valentine's day and they offered us non-alcoholic sparkling wine and chocolate. Their support chat is fast and friendly, but it seems that the messaging between the staff doesn't work. A couple of times we have had issues with the support telling us one thing, and in the reality, the opposite happened. We have had several cleanliness issues with Bob W apartments. Sometimes the toilet wasn't clean, and almost always we find dirty dishes in the kitchen closets. Coffee pots, pans, and pots are almost always in need of a wash before using. Would be recommended to check the dishes before using them. This is unfortunately always a problem in short-term rentals. Their furniture is old, even though I understand that they want to recycle and buy used furniture, but the chairs are so torn down that they ripped off my pants when sitting. They obviously didn't invest in good-quality materials as the tables wear damaged by moisture as were the bathroom cabinets. The voice insulation is not the greatest. If you stay close to the elevator, you will hear the voices from it. Also, you can hear neighbors talking or moving stuff around. It was cold during the winter, and you can't control the temperature there. Technically you should be able to set the temperature, but in only one apartment it actually works. They could offer desks for remote workers.

Stayed at Bob W for a week with my brother in one of the apartments with sauna & balcony and can honestly say everything down to the pull out sofa bed was comfy! I ended up claiming the living room/sofa bed to enjoy the light nights. Even the reusable water bottles in the room were a nice little touch! Overall a great stay and perfect location!
