Interior Design Highlights

Located in the centre of Tartu’s old town, Bob W Duo Lofts’ design concept is inspired by the building’s modern architecture. It features beautiful common areas where guests can relax – you’ll have access to a bookable on-site cinema, meeting room, and well-equipped gym, and there’s even a café in the lobby where you can grab a cup of coffee. And don’t forget to pay a visit to the rooftop terrace!

Originally built in 1937, the structure is a former public telephone and telegram centre where residents of Tartu could keep in touch with the rest of the world. It has since been fully renovated to return this historic building to its former glory and provide travellers with a luxurious but authentic place to stay.

Each apartment at the Duo Lofts complex has been decorated with sustainability and style in mind. You’ll find high-quality furniture throughout that brings a touch of glamour and luxury to your trip. Gorgeous high ceilings give an airy atmosphere to each room, and the apartments are equipped with everything you’ll need for a comfortable stay.

With studios, lofts, and other apartments available, you’re sure to find the perfect accommodation for your trip to Tartu.

Local Estonian Designer

We’ve partnered with one of our favourite designers in Estonia, Gerdi Arst. She’s an expert in all things real estate and usually specialises in staging homes ready for sale. She’s now played an essential role in making our Duo Lofts apartments look as inviting and homely as possible.

Locally Crafted Furniture

Premium Beds for a Great Night’s Sleep

Sleep easy at Bob W Duo Lofts on our specially selected beds. The beds are made in Viljandi, Estonia, by the environmentally conscious company ParagonSleep. The company uses only FSC-certified wood and is also certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). Any textiles they produce are OEKO-TEX® 100 Standard, and all synthetic fibres are certified by the Global Recycle Standard.

Sumptuous Sofa Beds

Our super-comfortable sofa beds come from Ermatiko, a family-run business founded in Estonia in 1993. The company produces durable sofas that are built to last. They source their raw materials from a responsibly managed forest and use a combination of solid wood and plywood to create a high-quality end product.

Locally Sourced and Sustainable Decor

Conversation-Starting Art

Bob W strives to reuse materials wherever possible, so we were thrilled to partner with Avola Art to decorate our Duo Lofts apartments. They use construction waste from real-estate projects to produce hand-crafted and interesting 3D pieces, the perfect addition to your home-away-from-home.

Coffee Cups Inspired by Nature

Even the coffee cups at Bob W Duo Lofts are something to be proud of. Sip your morning brew from a handmade porcelain mug produced by the Tallinn-based artist Raili Keiv. Her designs are inspired by Estonian nature – they’re simple but striking.
