I have stayed at Marlyn Lodge last week for the first time. Its central location with walking distance to all of the main brokers and underwriters (incl. Lloyds) has been very convenient. I stayed in a one bedroom and it was very clean, extremely spacious (as there is a large extra living room attached) and fully equipped. The kitchen is... More

Awesome location - walk to tower Bridge; Borough Markets; Southbank; Brick Lane; Shoreditch; Spitalfields...... Good value for money. Although clean the room is in need of a little TLC. If you don't want the Lino sticking up in the kitchen; if you don't want your bathroom to look dated then this is not for you, but if you will be... More

Thank you for your feedback, we completely agree that the location is excellent and we often take a walk around the local area ourselves as so much is happening. We are sorry for your issues with the Lino, we have now included this in our checklists. In regards to the bathrooms, we have completed renovation of 16 out of 18... More

We have stayed in a one bedroom apartment several times now when we visit London. The apartment is spacious and well maintained and it's proximity to the DLR and Tower Hill tube station makes it an ideal location. The owner, Christine, is very helpful. Would thoroughly recommend this apartment. Jennifer Main, Aberdeen

Stayed a month ago and was very happy with the apartment. A great price for a self contained apartment in the city of London. Will definitely use again if I need somewhere to stay in town. Would highly recommend to anyone staying in the city area!!!

As a city worker who's commute is longer than the average rail user, I often use Marlyn Lodge if I need to stay in town overnight. In those busy weeks when the sleep-versus-'time spent travelling' means it's better to stay up in London, rather than travel home to the coast, the hassle free check in process and comfortable clean environment...

As a family of four who from Germany who took a few days to visit London the Marlyn Lodge was the right choice. It is spacious, well equipped, well kept and located very conveniently. In particular coming from Stansted (Liverpool Street Stn.). We were comparing a lot while planning the trip and it is a good value for a city... More

Have stayes in both studios and 1 beds, both have full kitchen & bath tub. TV & Wifi also available at no extra cost. I bumped into the landlord, Michael,... More

A very secure and quiet location nearly in the heart of London, at a stone's throw from the Tower, Brick Lane, the City, and a few minutes' walk away from three tube stations, Marlyn Lodge is a great and very reasonably priced location for stays in London. I have already been there three times, in diffferent studio flats, and have... More

We stayed at Marlyn Lodge for six nights and were very pleased. The flat was large, spotless, well equipped and very comfortable. The internet was speedy, and the clothes washer was great. The flat is located less than ten minutes from the Tower Hill tube station, which services both the Circle and the District lines. The DLR is right across... More

The apartments are designed to cater for the needs of people visiting London either on vacation, business or residential use.
