I must say that I didn't expect to have such a wonderful experience like the one we had there, The apartment was really clean, it contains everything you need, the kids loved their room and the parent room with the attached toilet was great, the place is close to the underground and in the area you can find restaurants to...

The apartment istself is nice, however... When you leave a bag of items with the staff you would expect for it to still be there when you come back wouldn't you? No... sadly not, since the items went 'missing' there has been an agreement to make payment to replace the items that went missing (around £30 worth)... However for a... More

It is always a pleasure to stay at Marlin Apartments when I visit London on business. Much more personal than a hotel very relaxing and reasonably pricked. For those seeking of you who enjoy Curry this is the best location in London. A special mention for Julia the receptionist she is always very helpful and cheerful.

Stayed at an apartment in this building prior to a trip in to London one evening. The thing that strikes you as you enter the reception area is that it genuinely doesnt feel like a hotel, more like a block of flats (which I suppose essentially it is). After working my way through to the apartment and working out how... More

I've stayed at a Marlin Apartment once before and I have to say, this review is going to be similar to that one (although I wasn't on Trip Advisor at the time!).....mostly good, but some negative points.

Staying in Whitechapel

Neighborhood Profile
Whitechapel
Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden squares, these days you're more likely to catch a cutting edge fashionista scurrying through its age old lanes than criminals of any sort.Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of Whitechapel.
