05 April, 2023 – After opening our first Italian property in Florence in 2022, we're saying hello to Milan in spring 2023.
Bob W is a tech-driven hospitality operator offering a smarter alternative to hotels and short-stay rentals. Backed by top real estate investors and venture capitalists, we currently operate in Italy, Spain, the UK, Norway, Finland, Estonia, Greece and Germany with plans to expand further in Europe. The city centre property will be our first in Milan.
A prime central location in Milan
Aside from sustainability and authentic design, a prime location in a cool area is something you can expect whenever you sleep with Bob, no matter the city. Bob W’s first Milan property is located between the hip Ticinese neighbourhood and the historic centre. Iconic attractions are within walking distance for guests, including the Colonne di San Lorenzo, which is just three minutes away, the Via Torinio shopping street, just five minutes away, and the Duomo, Darsena and Navigli, all just 10 minutes away.
The modern building
Bob W’s real estate team is constantly seeking master lease and management agreement opportunities from partners who share their quality and environmental standards. For that reason, we're thrilled to have secured this building on Via Privata del Don.
The property is a recently constructed and self-contained aparthotel property spanning five floors consisting of spacious studios and one-bedroom apartments wholly operated by Bob W.
“Being based in Milan, I’m especially thrilled to secure a second building in Italy for Bob W. We’re already in advanced discussions to open additional locations with plenty of capacity to grow further in Milan, Florence and other major Italian cities.” – Edoardo Volpi, Director of Real Estate at Bob W
