About Andrew Ellis

We have been renting our property for over 30 years now and have welcomed many guests back every year who have now become our friends.

Andrew Ellis purchased this Apartment in 1985

Why Andrew Ellis chose City of London

The property is in possibly one of the best locations for tourism and work. There is so much history in the area and also amazing restaurants and bars being in the City of London. We are a serviced apartment so we have staff on the premises from 8am to 4pm weekdays. So anything not quite right we can remedy straight away for you. It is also of a very good size compared to other apartments in the City and your key is waiting for you on arrival at the property not at another location as is sometimes the case with other apartment lets.

What makes this Apartment unique

Not many apartments allow you to walk out of your building and walk 3 minutes to see the Tower of London which is over 900 years old. We have great transportation links:- 2 Tube Stations 4 Major Bus Routes DLR - (Canary Wharf / City Airport / Westgate Shopping) River Bus - (Greenwich / Westminster) 2 Main Line Railway Stations - Liverpool St & Fenchurch Street

                                                              Wonderful stay at Marlyn Lodge

                                                              Paterson2014 P.

                                                              The apartment we were allocated was spacious and very comfortable. A minor problem we experienced with the shower tap was rectified within hours of notification. The facilities within the apartment were all very good including TVs, kitchen utensils, bedding and the like. It's not a modern apartment by any means but for our short term stay it was excellent. The location is close to several tube stations which makes it convenient for getting central London for the obvious tourist activities. Importantly, the contact we had with the managing agent prior to arrival was first class. This enabled ready and easy access to the apartment upon arrival. We would stay here again without hesitation!

                                                              Very spacious and clean

                                                              Lisa S.

                                                              We were very very impressed with this place.

                                                              For a studio it has loads of room. It has a decent size bathroom with bath and over bath shower (which was lovely). Towels, handwash, shampoo & conditioner were all included.

                                                              It has a separate kitchen with full size fridge/freezer, oven with 4 ring hob, microwave, kettle, 4 slice toaster and more than enough crockery/cutlery for 4 people. You could easily cook / eat every meal in if you wanted to.

                                                              The main room has a double bed, a large double sofa bed and a large 4 seater dining table and chairs. Even with all this and the sofa bed made up there is still plenty of room for 4 people. The apartment is light and airy and has air con. The windows open for some fresh air too.

                                                              There is a large tv, and a sound system.

                                                              The place was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated.

                                                              Portsoken street is a nice quiet street. Around the corner is a well stocked Tesco express and there are dozens of eateries for different budgets/tastes within a 5 min walk.

                                                              I would highly recommend this place and will definitely be booking again next time that I am in London.

                                                              London, near the Tower

                                                              Roomy flat, good area, very convenient to tube stations.

                                                              Great location, very comfortable

                                                              This was our second time to rent a flat in Marlyn Lodge from Andrew. This time, we rented two. Both were very comfortable and met all of our needs. The location is great. Very close to many attractions and the tube. We will rent from Andrew again on our next trip to London.

                                                              well equipped studio. well situated.

                                                              We had a wonderful time my grandson and I. It was close to Towern and Tower hill station. You need to get a better guide how to get from Tower Hill to the studio, perhaps download a map with instructions.

                                                              The cleaning lady was efficient and nice even if she had a hard time understanding English, we worked it out with sign and mimes and she helped out very nice. When we arrived to Copenhagen I told a lady and her two sons about your nice studios and also gave your mail adress, so she will probably contact you when going to London with her sons.

                                                              In your information when someone have booked with you give the information some way about Oyster card. You will be thanked since this save visitors a lot of money.

                                                              I gladly give you more points, but all in all I'm very happy staying with you

Kurze Wege zur U-Bahn, Einkaufen, Tower, Skygarden, Starbucks...Klein (wie wohl alle Wohnungen in London) und fein in einem ruhigen Haus. Es ist alles vorhanden, was man so braucht (inkl. gutem WLAN). Wir haben unseren Kurzaufenthalt genossen und können diese Wohnung auf jeden Fall weiter empfehlen.
