Marlin Apartments are always great value and Algate is my favourite. This time I was booked into a top floor apartment which has loads of space and fantastic views over London. The staff here are amazing, really warm, welcoming and helpful. Macro on reception is particularly great and can't do enough to help make your stay away from home a... More

booked a cot, wasn't here on arrival and took an hour to be sent from another building. When it finally arrived it was covered in stains and had mold on. Also booked a high chair, this was waiting in the room but had not been cleaned since the last person who used it.

Great quality apartments in a good area. I use them in the week for work and have stayed in most of the 2 bed ones as well as a couple of 1 bed ones. Always clean with all things you'd need provided. Close to all the lively parts of Aldgate/Whitechapel but no noise and feel safe.

We stayed for just one night, we tried to check in early before heading off to see a show. The apartment wasn't ready but we were able to leave our case and told the reception we would not be back until late evening to check in, which was not going to be a problem as the reception is attended 24hrs....

Discovered this property while searching for a hotel from one the large hotel search websites. Comparing the price for 2 nights accommodation against hotel options it was a no brainier financially.

I spent 2 days there with my friends and it was really nice. The apartment was fully equipped and very close to the tube. The area is just great and the views from the terrace, especially at sunset, are wonderful. Very comfortable beds too!

Very clean spacious apartment. The building is currently undergoing refurbishment so you'll see lots of scaffolding around. Location is good as its only a short walk from Algate East Tube Station. The only thing I would say is that the sofa bed in our apartment looks very worn down other than that all is good.

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.
