The location is excellent. Short walk to Tower Bridge and London Tower and the underground. If you want a great place to eat go to Goodman Field. Left out of the gate and across the road. The unit was very comfortable but a little dated not that this worried us. Well set up with a washing machine and dryer which is a must if staying in London for any length of time. The bathroom has no ventilation which is a little off putting but as there is no window in the room I cannot see how this could be overcome. Be patient with the hot water as it may take some time to warm up. My wife found the street noise disturbing but I didn't notice it so a light sleeper may have a disturbed sleep. But you are in London and it would be hard to escape street noise. All in all a very comfortable stay. A home away from home.

kenanddi,

Thank you for your positive review regarding our apartment.

We are glad you enjoyed your visit and there was nothing that got in the way.

There are extractor fans fitted in each bathroom so unsure if this was switched on/off during your stay but they are normally sufficient to clear the water/steam in the air. We will take a look though to check everything is working as it should.

I hope you soon return to London and to Marlyn Lodge.

Stayed at Marlyn Lodge for 1 month and enjoyed every minute of it. The set up was perfect as my daughter was attending Scoliosis Sos across the street. There are 2 underground stations between us and a bus stop right beside the building. The best part was tesco express in the same building and Sainbury's a few steps away. I would definitely stay there again.

We (2 adults, 2 kids 15 and 13 y/o) spent a wonderful week in London last Easter in this excellent apartment. The apartment is exactly as described and we found it clean, very well maintained and equipped and overall very convenient. It is 2 min walk from the Underground Tower Hill station. The wi-fi connection works really fine, as well as all the houseware. The bathroom is very clean and the shower (which for us is a must) works very well.
We reccomend to enjoy a full English Breakfast in the very typical nearby "The Minories" Pub (beware they do not allow clients under 18 y/o after 9PM for dinner).

Marlyn Lodge has been my business home from home for nearly 10 years on visits from Australia to the City.
It offers a good standard of accommodation and services at a very reasonable price, along with daily servicing of the room, laundry facilities, WiFi, and even a supermarket in the same building!
The quality of service from the owner/managers has always been excellent.

Room Tip: Rooms on the car-park side of the building are generally quieter.

Apartments are in a great location. Less than ten minute walk from either Aldgate or Tower Hill tube. Comfortable accommodation, good local facilities including the rare presence of a pub in the City or nearby open on weekends! . No hesitations to book again.

We just completed a 10 day stay in a studio flat at Marilyn Lodge. The flat was everything we hoped for and more! The location is wonderful with tube and bus stops within minutes of the front door and a small grocery with all,you could want just around the corner. The studio is spacious with a lovely tiled bathroom and large living area. The kitchen is well equipped for basic meal preparation and the washing machine is a great addition as well. The unit is priced much better than hotels and you get so much more. We never heard any noise from other units and always felt,safe and secure. Everything was ready and clean when we arrived and Christine was a pleasure to deal with.
