The ideal accommodation for those who decide to go to London. Kindness of the staff I would like to thank especially unique Theodora reception made me feel at home immediately. Very close to the tube!!! There are two supermarkets near the apartments and the famous Borough Market, the best market in U. K. There is also London Bridge station not... More

Third visit. Excellent self-catering apartment within easy walking distance of two underground stations (Borough and London Bridge) and the Borough Market to stock up on food. There is a Tesco supermarket downstairs for all basic requirements. Kitchens are quite well equipped, although why provide a microwave if you don’t provide microwaveable dishes? And one of my pet peeves about some... More

Spacious and clean, modern and minimal decor was great. Little balcony and floor to ceiling window in living area was bright and airy. Kitchen was well open plan with living area and well equipped. 5 of us stayed in a 2-bed apartment, one bedroom was en-suite (shower room) and the main bathroom had a bath with shower over. The lift... More

Great to stay in an apartment with a balcony and lovely view rather than a hotel. The site is huge and rooms are hard to find. Corridors are very noisy but this does not affect you once you are in the room. Decor is very basic and designed for ease of cleanliness (which is very good) rather than comfort.

Review of Marlin Apartments Empire Square There is no air conditioning in this apartment. We arrived to realize belatedly that this was the case… Luckily for us, the weather turned cooler and we made do with windows ajar but the lack of ventilation did take some getting used to. This is also a residential apartment so I assume only some... More

Stayed in these apartments for 2nd time and will stay here again. It is fairly clean, modern, quiet. One bedroom apartment is spacious enough to accommodate double bed and child's travel cot in the bedroom. The reception responds promptly on our requests. Yes, they use people who hardly speak a word in English to service apartments but who cares if... More

A nice modern apartment , the hallways were a bit smelly although with an apartment block so large you are bound to get that from the various cooking going on. Kitchen was excellent. beds very comfortable. We were close to 2 underground stations Borough and Tower Bridge. Put on your walking shoes. Borough Markets are nearby by and very good.

Fantastic is all I can say, booked online with late rooms.com, we had a studio apartment for only £90 a night, in the center of London this is great value. I was a little worried before I got there because it sounded too good to be true. Check in was easy. The room was spotless, spacious and even had a... More

I could not fault this hotel, location right next to Borough tube station, had an excellent meal in the Borough market in the evening, vibrant atmosphere. The apartment was spotlessly clean and spacious, from the very start Irina was brilliant, she spoke to us about the area which was very helpful, Catalin (building manager) responded very promptly to an email...

This is a corporate apartments style stay. The rooms are basic but do have space and a full kitchen which is nice. There a lot more room than your average London tourist hotel for sure. Washer and dryer in the unit. The location is fine. Borough tube station is close and you can get to anywhere in the city quickly... More
