About the property

Attractive, Spacious 1 Bed Apt Conveniently Located For Business Or Sightseeing

Lovely apartment recently fully refurbished to a high specification - light, airy and spacious. Such a large lounge is very unusual in a London apartment - approx 5.75 x 3.8 meters (17 x 12 ft).

Stylish, chic, modern décor and furniture, with high quality fittings throughout. Home-from-home, with supermarket literally underneath. Free WiFi. Sky Television. Climate/temperature controlled lounge, for warming up or cooling down. Walking distance from several cafés, restaurants, pubs and all forms of public transport. Safe, purpose-built block with 2 elevators and weekday concierge. Temporary gym membership available.

Situated in the "actual" City of London, on the north side of the Thames, we are literally 2 mins walk to Tower Bridge, 4 mins Tower Gateway for Docklands Light Railway, 5 mins Tower Hill tube and Tower Pier for river taxis, 5 mins Fenchurch Street Station, 5 mins Aldgate tube - and extremely handy for a range of London buses. Lovely and peaceful large secluded garden with bench seats and bushes, trees & shrubs - just 1 minute from the apartment.

*Purpose-built block with secure video entry system, 2 elevators, weekday concierge.

* Gorgeous large lounge with comfortable leather sofa and chair, round glass dining table & 4 chairs, plus side tables and wide flat-screen TV.

* Bedroom with extremely comfortable English King size bed (150 cm/5 ft wide and 2 meter/6 ft 6 ins long), plenty of drawers & wardrobe hanging space, TV and black-out blinds. High quality 100% cotton bedding.

* Full kitchen with electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, toaster and plenty of crockery and cutlery.

* Attractive bathroom with full bath + shower head and glass screen. Soft-close toilet seat and vanity unit doors. Towel radiator and towel rack.

No extra charges, as your rental payment includes all linen, towels, cleaning and running costs.

Normal check-in is after 16.00 hours and check-out is required by 10.00 hours, unless otherwise agreed. This is purely in order that the cleaning and preparation of the apartment is not jeopardised for the next guest. At less busy times we can and will be more flexible.

We, or our representative, will 'meet & greet' you on arrival, and will give you keys and information on the apartment and the area, attuned to you personally, with the intention of you getting the best from your London visit.

The apartment is very handy for cafés, pubs and restaurants and has many in close proximity. There is a Tesco supermarket underneath the block, just round the corner, and an ATM cash point. There is also a Sainsbury supermarket within 100 yards. These supermarkets are open 7 days a week from early morning until 9pm or 10pm – slightly earlier close on Sundays.

The London public transport scene is terrific these days, and it is probably a good idea to purchase a Travel Card, which will offer unlimited travel on buses, tubes and the Docklands Light Railway, plus discounts on the Emirates cable car and Thames river buses. A Travel Card can be purchased, in advance of your visit, for varying lengths of time – through the Transport for London website. If you do not have time for it to be mailed to you, it can be sent to the apartment address, where we will hold it for your visit.

About Bonnie & Barry Fitzpatrick

We used to live here in the City and loved it, but now we live outside London and have decided to offer the apartment for rental by discerning visitors to London.

Bonnie & Barry Fitzpatrick purchased this apartment in 1988

Why Bonnie & Barry Fitzpatrick chose England

It is a great apartment, in a very convenient part of London. Getting around couldn't be easier as we are so close to all means of transport - and London public transport these days is really fabulous. There are lots of restaurants, bistros, coffee shops and old-fashioned English pubs nearby. Grocery store, ATM cash machine and Gym are underneath the block.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is situated in a nice quiet purpose built block. Secure video entry system. Concierge weekdays 08.00 to 16.00 hours. Two elevators. Lovely entrance lobby.

Couldn't have been better....

  • 5 of 5

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!

This is a lovely, convenient apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable apartment in a great location. There are a number of good restaurants near by, as well as two grocery stores. It is also extremely easy to get transportation to all the major sites in London. We highly recommend it and plan on staying here again when we return to London.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental was terrific. It is a great location, with lots of places to eat. Very close to many tourist sites as well as transportation. The flat itself was wonderful: clean, quiet, well stocked with lots of helpful items (maps, sewing kit, umbrellas). The owners were very quick to respond to all of our questions. It helped make our stay in London a very memorable experience. Thank you for everything.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in London and could not of had a better location to explore London from. You can walk to just about any major attraction or take the tube or bus which is only a couple of blocks away. The flat is very comfortable, clean near pubs, restaurants and a couple of grocery stores. We had arranged for someone to pick us up at the airport and was greeted warmly by John even after our flight was delayed several hours and driven to the apartment where Carol, their representative, was waiting to show us around the flat and to answer any questions we might of had. An excellent and professional service was provided and would not hesitate to recommend Bonnie and their flat to any visitor to London.

very comfortable, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely pleased with the apartment. It was more spacious than it looked in the photos and very comfortable. We stayed in London before but never in the more eastern part of the city. I think I had read too many old mystery novels so thought the area would maybe be a little "dicey" but were we every wrong. It was a very safe neighborhood and was very close to several tube lines and bus routes. You cannot go wrong staying here and we will return.

Great location, comfortable and welcoming flat

  • 5 of 5

We spent our 25th wedding anniversary at the very comfortable and homey flat. We found the location to be very convenient for attractions we were interested in seeing. The owners were very helpful with some of our event planning and accommodating for our specific needs. The flat is very clean and modernly furnished. Literally everything there we could have possibly wanted.
