Marlin Apartments Limehouse
Ranked #77 of 930 Specialty Lodging in London
Reviewed May 23, 2013

I've been staying at Marlin apartments in Limehouse for a few weeks. Overall i'd rate it a 4.5 because there's room for improvement. The studio I booked it's a very decent size, has all appliances needed, great kitchen, nice bath. The cleaning crew comes in once a week and they do a decent job at cleaning the place up (sometimes better, other times not so much). Toiletries & other consumables (such as detergent for the dish washer and washing machine) are however not replaced on a regular basis. There's always a concierge on site and she/he is always helpful and even helps people get around London easily. Location-wise, the area itself it's not great, but it only takes 4-5 mins to get to the DLR station and another 8-10 to get to Bank (central London).

Room Tip: Avoid ground floor.

These apartments are very clean and fully contained, with a washer/dryer, dishwasher, full kitchen etc. The area itself is a bit rough, but you are walking distance to the tube so can travel in to the more interesting parts of London during the day, then come home and prepare dinner at night.

We had a great experience at the Marlin apartments Docklands it was nice to be away from the hassle and bustle of the city but at times was annoying having to catch two trains to enter the city centre. It was a super spacious apartment with great facilities. Was clean tidy and temperature control was great.

I stayed for 3 weeks in Marlin Limehouse, and enjoyed every minute of the experience.

The apartments are very modern, extremely clean and really to gives that special home from home feeling. Iron and Ironing board are a God send. Kitchens are ultra modern with everything you need, hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and freezer plus a washing machine. Spotlights and down lighters all round plus nice marble work tops really finish it off well.

Beds are very comfortable and if you elect for a one bedroom apartment then it really does feel like a sanctuary of peace and comfort in the middle of the maelstrom of London.

Iimehouse station is 5 minutes away and you can be into the centre of London in 10 – 15 minutes. The location is excellent, with a myriad of local shops, pubs and restaurants literally on your door step.

Staff are excellent and can’t do enough for you, a smashing place to stay and live.

we stayed at limehouse for 6 nights as our London base and it is the perfect location as its near DLR and overground railway. Sainsbury's across the road and cost cutter 100mtr down the road.The apartments have all of the requirements in them they just need a little attention to detail re cleaning and checking on if people have smoked in them as the apartment 57 obviously had some one in it that had been smoking in it and little things like fan not working and no offer of new towels and griller not working in oven which is all a shame because it could have been so much better

We were travelling around Europe for one month and our first stop was one week in London. The staff were nice and helpful and the apartment was clean, comfortable and conveniently located near the DLR train station. There is a small supermarket across the road and another in the next block. It was very good. The only and tinny 'but' was that it is a bit dangerous to get out of the shower since the bathtub is high. The room's view was the carpark and the street at the back of the block but we were outside all day doing tourist stuff all day so had no need for a view.
