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
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.
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.

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
You must book a sofa bed at £15 per night for 3/4 persons or if 2 persons want separate beds.

location, location, location!!!! Everything is at walk distance. You can buy groceries (3 min walk @ Tesco Express), Starbucks & Pret A Manger @ 4 min away), Train Station (Tower Hill @ 5-7 min walk), London Bridge, jack The Ripper Museums & London Tower at 7-8 min walk. Apartment is comfortable & secure (Front Gate, Access key Path & Cameras). We spent 8 days in London and will definitely recommend this place. See you next year!
Good location right by rail and tube stations and comfortable accommodations.
The flat was fine. Great location but very hot and stuffy all the time. Windows open and two ceiling fans made little difference. I wouldn't recommend it in summer. Having the windows open made it very noisy as well. Opt for an air conditioned flat or hotel at that price.
We very much enjoyed our stay in a studio apartment in Marlyn Lodge. It was very spacious with plenty of room for a double bed, bed settee, table and chairs and TV. The apartment had free Wi-Fi which was very reliable. It was in a great location, walking distance to Tower of London, Tower Bridge and St. Katherine's Dock to name a few and there was two tube stations (Tower Hill & Aldgate) only a few minutes walk. The apartment was clean and well equipped with everything you would need to cook. There are two supermarkets within a short walk with a good selection of provisions. There was plenty of places to eat too. I would recommend Marlyn Lodge as a good place to stay for a reasonable price in a great location.
We really enjoyed our staying at Marlyn Lodge. The apartment is nice and clean, the kitchen is very well equipped. Two underground lines are a 5 minutes walk, and you have starbuks and tesco store really close to the house.
I do reccommend this place!!
Marlyn Lodge is in a safe and convenient neighborhood. Check in process was smooth, just as described in email instructions, certainly no issues accessing the apartment. Lots of amenities close by, a couple of grocery stores around the corner within a block's walk, tube station within a couple minutes walk. Apartment was in an older building, but the 1 bedroom apartment was nice; it had everything you needed, fridge, stove, microwave, kettle, pots, pans, utensils, dishes, television and a washer/dryer. Only complaint was that it was a little dirty; bedroom walls and nightstands had stains (??), kitchen cupboards and tiles and bathroom floor needed a good clean, there was oatmeal (I'm hoping it was oatmeal) on the floor by the bathtub, under the sink. As mentioned, there is a grocery store (Tesco) around the corner and I bought a few cleaning items and spent a couple of hours wiping down all the furniture, counter tops and cupboards removing all visible stains. We left the apartment cleaner than when we arrived. Housekeeping comes in ONLY to remove garbage and change towels...unless you ask and pay for the housekeeping option, which we didn't. We were relieved to find out that apartment 107 is not on the 1st floor, but on the second floor (I'm guessing by European standards that the first floor is 1 floor above ground level), it provided a view of the small parking lot. Even though the apartment is situated in the downtown core, it was nice and quiet in the evenings when all the workers retreats home for the night...it can get noisy on the weekends from the party goers. Fairly quiet building, don't hear any of the neighbors. The neighbors that you did run into seemed friendly. Wifi was really slow, but it worked. Couldn't figure out how to use the apartment payphone, but we knew that it worked...got a few calls from Telemarketers. We only stayed at Marlyn Lodge for a week, but should've stayed longer. We continued our travels for a few more weeks over different parts of London and stayed at several other locations...none that can be compared to Marlyn Lodge! Overall, if we were to come back to London, we would definitely stay at Marlyn Lodge again.
The location is great for visiting the historic & iconic sights within the City of London inc.

The nearest underground station is Tower Hill on the Circle and District lines and is a few minutes walk from the apartments.
