I just returned from a five night stay. I was traveling with my extended family and we rented two 2-bedroom apartments. They were able to accommodate our request to have the apartments cose to each other which was great. The apartments were spacious, clean and comfortable. I often rent apartments when traveling and you must remember they are not hotels... More

I stayed as a single traveller at the Marlin Apartments, Empire Square, for two nights in mid-April 2014. The apartment was very well-equipped with all one would need for any length of stay and included an oven and hob, microwave, full-size fridge-freezer, washer-dryer and even a dishwasher, plus all cutlery, crockery, towels, etc. All appliances were built-in and the equipment...

I stay here often and when the management finally dumped the pitiful Internet provider they used before and upgraded to a fast service I was very pleased to stay here again. HOWEVER, this time I stayed they Internet was PAINFULLY slow - it wouldn't even complete the download on a speed test, and impossible to watch YouTube. Turns out the... More

I have stayed over and over at Empire Square Marlin Apartments for more than a year now, having switched from a much more costly local hotel. My faith in Empire Square is continuously reinforced, and I have discovered how wonderful having such a great flat - even for a week - is in London. Overseen personally, professionally, and excellently by... More

We recently had three weeks in a 1BR apartment on the 4th floor, one of six locations around London. There is 24-hour concierge and access to the building is controlled. Not all apartments in the complex are used for short-term lets - there also are owner-occupiers. The accommodation was very comfortable, and being able to have a well-equipped kitchen was... More

Have stayed here regularly over the past couple of months. The apartments are spacious and well equipped with a full kitchen: fridge-freezer, oven, microwave dishwasher and washer dryer. The staff are friendly and the building is secure. Can't recommend a better place to stay when exploring a city!!
