          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
          foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
          of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest

          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
