Great location, right near Tower Hill and Aldgate metro stations, a Tesco and two pubs. Very clean and responsive staff. Great for travellers as it has a great location, easy for visitors to get to the City and around London either by walking or metro. Would stay again if came to London again.

Dear Georgia E, Thank you for your review. We agree the location is ideal and is overlooked by many potential guests as they believe West London is where the action is. With the Tower of London / Thames / Shopping / St. Katherines Dock / Markets - there is always something worth seeing in the City! Please come again, Andrew

I've stayed at Marlyn Lodge at least twice a year for the past four years. In every instance I found Andrew and the staff to be very helpful and accommodating. Plus, Andrew will sometimes text me out of the blue, during my stay to make sure I am happy and all is well. He has done this a few times....

Our initial reaction on seeing the apartment was total disappointment as it certainly was not a representation of the photos. It was dirty, the walls were badly scuffed and scratched, the toilet seat was broken so that every time you went to sit down it moved considerably so that you slipped. There was a brush for washing dishes that had...

Dear courts48, Thank you for your review. We are a little surprised by your statement that the apartment was not a true reflection of our photos as this is certainly not the case as this would obviously be a major issue and isn't an overall impression that most of our guests have. We are unsure which apartment you stayed in...

Perfect location on the doorstep of The Tower of London & Tower Bridge and just a 3-4 minute walk to Tower Hill tube. The accommodation was wonderful, very clean with every facility you could wish for, it was like home from home and made my stay extremely pleasurable. And the wifi was quicker than I am use to at home..!...

On arriving at the apartment - we were very disappointed in the cleanliness of unit 210.

Staying in Whitechapel

Neighbourhood Profile
Whitechapel
Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden squares, these days you're more likely to catch a cutting edge fashionista scurrying through its age old lanes than criminals of any sort.
