    Southwark
    Even before the arrival of the instantly
    iconic Shard, the riverside scene in
    Southwark had moved well beyond any
    up-and-coming phase of development. For
    quite some time, locals and out-of-towners
    alike have loved browsing the boutiques of
    Bermondsey High Street, foraging through
    the bounteous stalls at centuries old

    Planning to visit London next Spring. Four adults, each wants a separate bed (or 3 beds and one couch). (: We're mostly OK with shared space, but not sheets :) Is it possible to get two single beds instead of a double in any of Marlin Apartments' configurations? Or four individual beds/couches in the Two Bedroom apartment?

    We wish to book a one bedroom apartment for 2 people. We want to invite 2 friends for dinner one night. Is there a table and 4 dining chairs in the 1 bedroom apartment? I have emailed Marlin to ask the question but perhaps somebody here can answer. Thanks

    Oh Yes. The room has a square dining table that accommodates four. Plus it has a comfortable couch in the living room. You shouldn't have trouble making your guests happy.
