  • Couldn't have been better....

    "The apartment at Marlyn Lodge was perfect for us... excellent location, 5 minute walk to either Tower Hill or Aldgate underground stations; extremely comfortable, clean and quiet apartment; well functioning internet; and a well equipped kitchen. The owner provided a lot of useful information for getting to the apartment, taking advantage of restaurants and sights near the apartment and provided a lot of nice guide books at the apartment to help with planning activities all around London. I definitely recommend this apartment and would be very happy to stay here again myself. Excellent!"

  • Great , convenient quiet space

    "We a family of 5, three teenagers and this location worked well for us. The neighborhood is very quiet- even with construction going on- we didn't ever notice the noise. As their signs say, they are a very courteous construction company. The apartment is close to several tube stops, markets, sights and everything you could need in London. The wifi was out when we arrived but they were very quick to get it fixed. The oven needed to be fixed but it didn't really matter for us and I am sure that they have had that fixed since we left. The only thing we couldn't manage was to get hot water in the shower: it was strange because there was scalding hot water out of the sinks but not the shower. This made for quick showers but I think this falls in our fault and not theirs. One really great thing was how toasty warm you can get the apartment- perfect after a chilly London day out. If we were to go back, we would stay here again. It was easy to find, get in and get oriented. Tony helped us upon arrival and was very friendly and efficient. They were also very kind to provide lots of information about the surrounding location sights, restaurants, gyms, etc. That was very helpful and got us excited to arrive even before we left."

  • Convenient Location, Great Value!

    "This flat is centrally located in London and is within walking distance of many of the major tourist attractions throughout London (we walked a loop from the flat to Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Globe Theatre and back to the flat over a day quite enjoyably). In addition, the flat is very conveniently located close to 3 London Underground Stations (St. Pauls - 7 minutes, Farringdon - 5 minutes, Barbican - 3 minutes). I recommend during the week to use Barbican, it seemed to us a little less congested versus the others. There are numerous restaurants, pubs and a grocery store all within less than a 5 minute walk as well. I would caution that since this area is predominantly commercial, I noticed many of the restaurants cater to a business crowd so quite a few of them were closed (or closed early) on Saturday & Sunday. You are immediately across the street from Smithfield Market which is a massive, wholesale butcher market (which you can visit - go before 8 AM, it's really interesting). As a result, trucks are constantly loading/unloading from about 10:00 PM to 2:00 AM on the street below, but the windows are pretty well insulated and the noise isn't too bad. Our group consisted of 2 adults and 3 teenage children, and the flat layout was perfect for our family. Communication with the owner was exceptionally thorough, the explanation of the facilities, transportation, etc. was one of the most thorough I've ever received from a VRBO owner! I would definitely recommend this flat for a family or small group of adults. With a lift in the apartment, it would also be very suitable for older guests as well. In talking with other tourists I met on our travels, I concluded that this area is probably one of the most convenient in London for tourists. Not touristy, but very convenient to all of those attractions. You see a bit more of "real" London this way. I would not hesitate to rent this flat again!"

  • Wonderful flat!

    "My family of four spent a wonderful stay in London in this absolutely fabulous apartment located in a perfectly elegant neighbourhood, not far from many of the major sites. All were easy walking distance, even for my two children. The apartment itself was more than comfortable and convenient. The host was helpful and met us at the designated times and made everything easy. Everything was perfect and clean, and I highly recommend!!"
