18 January 2023 – We've entered West London and our fifth short-stay accommodation property in the UK.
Bob W is a tech-driven hospitality provider offering a smarter alternative to hotels and short-stay rentals. We currently operate in the UK, Spain, Italy, Norway, Finland, and Estonia with plans to expand further in Europe. Our Paddington location opens to guests in late January 2023.
The Paddington area
A prime location in a cool area is something guests can expect whenever they sleep with us – no matter the city. This is why choosing a neighbourhood is serious business at Bob W. Paddington is an area known for its railway station and famous namesake fictional bear. In addition to being a transport hub from which you can easily travel to other parts of London or the UK, Paddington is a laid-back neighbourhood with bountiful greenery, waterfronts, dining and shopping possibilities.
The five-storey building
Our real estate team constantly seeks properties from partners who share our quality standards. For that reason, we’re thrilled to have secured this five-storey building on Devonshire Terrace.
“We’re excited to add a new location for Bob W, just five minutes from Paddington Station and in partnership with one of Europe's largest institutional landlords. Alongside other core European cities, London, Manchester, and Birmingham offer so much opportunity for Bob W to grow matching demand with supply.” – Philip Grace, Vice President of Real Estate at Bob W
The building is located on a quiet and distinguished street just blocks from the Paddington railway station, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. We’ve outfitted each room with a premium bed, yoga mats, and a snack and drink preparation area to meet guests’ needs during short to mid-term business or leisure stays.
