If your out and about in London then your hotel room doesn't really matter that much. But we all like comfort after a hard days work catching the sights. So its nice to get all the comforts and space of home at a price competitive with your average hotel rooms. The apartments are a bargain at the same price of... More

Having stayed in the marlin apartments with my friends, I can say with confidence that they are clean, modern, well furnished and reasonable priced. The apartments are in a relatively central area with the tube station less than 5 minutes away from them. The area of Aldgate itself is not the best of areas and can be threatening so keep... More

I stayed in these apartments with a group of friends on a Saturday evening. The apartments for six were lovely clean and spacious. They had a balcony with a great view of London. They were well equipped. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Only 5 minute walk from tube station so great place to use as a base for... More

I had read mixed reviews about Marlin Apartments Aldgate before booking but the price seemed good so I hoped so the best. The whole experience far exceeded my expectations.

We booked this apartment because it was close to the tube and we wanted to stay centrally without paying the earth. We didn't really know what it would be like and had read reviews of it being in a bit of a dodgy area so weren't expecting much. What we got was a short walk from the tube, a large,... More

We stayed here with our three children as it was walking distance from the Tower of London. The apartment itself was spacious with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The kitchen was modern with a dishwasher and washing machine. The online booking through their website worked efficiently and everything was organised including our late checkout. My criticisms are that it was... More

Luxury apartment, very well equipped with top class kitchens and bathrooms. Huge lounge (ours was a 2 bedroom apartment). Balcony overlooking the busy Commercial Rd was great for watching the world go by. Parking was not cheap (£25/night) but try the streets at the weekend (permit only, but this only applies Mon-Fri 8.30 - 5.30 - but check the signs!)... More

Staying in London for an extra 4 days after a tour finished, we wanted something that we could cook our own meals if we wanted, do some washing and have some space to move after living out of a suitcase for 3 weeks. Marlin Apartments at Aldgate satisfied us on all those accounts. Staff were friendly and apartment was very... More

I usually stay in hotels when I visit London but this apartment is certainly making me reconsider. My flat was spacious with a well fitted kitchen and all the appliances you'd expect. The bonus of a large balcony gave the apartment something extra. Unfortunately it's a little too far out of the city and with only the Aldgate stations close... More
