Overall we were very happy with our stay in #508 at Marlyn Lodge! Check in was easy with explicit instructions sent to us via email before our arrival. The king size bed in our room was very comfortable but unfortunately the pull out sofa bed in the livingroom that my brother and his partner were supposed to sleep on was not. When I called Andrew about it, he was very apologetic and said he would see to the sofa bed after we checked out. In the meantime, he refunded my brother's portion of the bill and offered an apartment for one night free of charge which we thought was very fair.
The apartment was well equipped with wi-fi, a big screen t.v. in the livingroom and bedroom, washing machine and drying rack, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, safe to store our passports etc. in, and a kitchen equipped to do light cooking in.
The location of Marlyn Lodge was so handy to the Tower Hill or Aldgate Tube Stations on the Circle and District Lines, and to the DLR. There were lots of great restaurants and pubs in the area. We especially enjoyed the short walk to the St. Katherine Docks area which offered a great variety of restaurants to choose from and was so picturesque!
We would recommend Marlyn Lodge to our family and friends and will definitely want to stay there the next time we visit London.
