The neighbourhood: Katajanokka
Aside from sustainability and locally-inspired design, a prime location in a vibrant neighbourhood is something you can expect whenever you sleep with Bob, no matter the city. Bob W Koti Katajanokka is located in Helsinki’s Katajanokka neighbourhood, which is an island connected to the city centre by a bridge. Often described as Helsinki’s most decorative district, Katajanokka is home to various Jugendstil buildings, meaning guests staying with Bob have the perfect opportunity to learn more about the Art Nouveau movement in Helsinki. Make sure you take some time to explore the streets and admire the stylish architecture during your stay.
Katajanokka is also just a stone’s throw from central Helsinki, so you’ll be well placed to go sightseeing too. Top attractions like the Design Museum, the Esplanadin Puisto and the Ateneum art museum are all within a 20-minute walk of Bob’s apartments.
Scandinavian-inspired interior design
The design concept for Bob W Koti Katajanokka is inspired by a sleek, Scandinavian style. Helsinki-based designer Anni Taimisto has sourced a fantastic mix of local, sustainable and stylish secondhand pieces with a perfect blend of comfort and functionality to bring the vibe of Helsinki into each of Bob’s apartments.
At Bob W, we source as much decor as we can locally and sustainably – all while bringing authentic and memorable designs to life. Each Koti Katajanokka apartment features decor made in Finland, including bespoke wardrobes and kitchen cabinets from Finnish company Arkken, plus dining tables handmade by Restatop.
To add a cosy finishing touch to every apartment, our designer has handpicked art from local antique shops – everything has been specially chosen to give your apartment a homey feel. The coffee cups are made by hand in local studio Cihu Design, and Bob has even had a custom scent blended by Osmia in Helsinki using natural ingredients.
A more sustainable choice
No matter the location, every stay with Bob W is 100% climate-neutral and fully carbon offset. At Bob W Koti Katajanokka, apartments feature reusable water bottles and tote bags.
In addition to choosing pieces that look great, we also prioritise manufacturers that share our environmental values. For example, the gorgeously comfortable mattresses and cushions in these apartments are made by Matri, a Finnish brand committed to using 100% certified European materials and powers its factory with solar energy for most of the year. We love brands like this, proving that sustainability can be glamorous! Read about how we are changing the game with sustainability.
