“Central location and comforetable”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We stayed in one of the apartments for 9 nights and it was great! We were a 5 minute walk from Tower Hill underground station and felt safe walking in between.

The bonus was the Tesco supermarket, which was located below the apartments.

We stayed in a one bed apartment for a week at the end of Jan beginning of Feb. Christine the manager could not have been more helpful and the entry arrangements were flawless and very easy. The flat itself is spotless and extremely well fitted out. The location is within spitting distance of Tower Bridge on the north bank of the river and we couldn't have been better placed for our holiday. We cooked about half of our meals which saved a lot of cash but there are loads of good restaurants around as well. Quite honestly we couldn't fault our stay in any respect at all. It was genuinely brilliant.

My wife and teenage son stayed for a week at the Marlyn Lodge. It is a great location near Tower Bridge and within an easy walk to a couple of Tube stops. There is a Tesco around the corner and was a short walk to numerous pubs. It is a cost effective alternative to a hotel. The kitchen was stocked with all the cups, glasses, plates we needed. The wifi worked well and the beds were comfortable. As for issues - the bathroom smelled, likely due to the constant dampness. There was a fan that didn't seem to do anything and the only way to ventilate was to prop open the door. They also missed supplying us new towels one of the weekdays (supposed to be daily fresh towels during weekdays). Having never stayed in a flat in London, I don't have anything to compare it to, but I imagine you could do much worse at that price point.

A very clean, comfortable and secure apartment in a great location. I havent stayed in this area of London before but found it to be well serviced by public transport and other amenities, The apartment had eveything I needed for a great stay. Good wifi. Fast and efficient booking. Very little outside noise allowed for a comfortable sleep. Great pillows. I felt right at home.

This flat was a great find. The location is in a business district near the tower of London. It is close to a metro station and has a Tesco on the first floor. We stayed in a studio flat and it was great. The kitchen was clean and well stocked with basic utensils. The bathroom was clean and there was free wifi available. All in all this was a great find and more economical than staying in a hotel.
