This place is a great alternative to a Hotel and on the Eastern Edge of what I would call Central London, right near the Aldgate East Tube Station. I was here for 2 weeks, the first for holiday and the 2nd for Work, as my Company's London office was about 2 blocks away, so was very convenient to me for...

Stayed here for an unplanned London vacation recently and found it to be a great alternative to a hotel especially for an extended stay (we were here for 12 days). Our accommodation was a one bedroom apartment with a separate fully equipped kitchen which meant we could cook the occasional meal instead of having to eat out every night. There...

Nice and clean apartment in close proximity of insurance business district. Whilst the apartment is not luxury, it provides enough space, has wireless connection and old household appliances needed, such as fridge, dishwasher, microwave and washing machine. For fresh air the windows can be opened as well. Also it is a quite location.

We had a very pleasant stay at Marlin Apartments. Our apartment had lots of space, a big kitchen with everything you might require and staff always helped us with any requests we had. Even though they weren't extremely friendly they also weren't unfriendly either.

Stayed at Aldgate and St Pauls, both great locations. Clean, well maintained, spacious apartments and for London great value for money. Lovely friendly reception staff, nothing is too much trouble. A real home from home with all the facilities needed for a comfortable stay.

The apartments themselves are great. Spacious, modern and kept clean with nice and comfortable beds and furniture. However, most of the staff either hangs up on you by phone, or promises to fix this or that without anything happening. Usually they're too busy watching TV shows or listening to music in the reception to greet you when you come (it...

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.
