About Marian Selby

We are a family run business. We have just two apartments, and both are within the stunning Circle Apartment building. We are not a large business with multiple apartments. Having just two units allows us to offer a very personal approach for our guests. We handle all our own bookings, and will be the single point of contact. We do not use agents.

Great location and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Property was convenient and included everything our family needed. Owner was responsive and accommodating. Having a kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, two balconies and laundry was really terrific. Property was no frills but very clean and well-maintained and you just can't beat the Southwark location. Will definitely stay again.

Safe and convenient

  • 3 of 5

Very grateful that we could reserve this apartment 10 days before our trip after our prior reservation with another company was cancelled unexpectedly. Very quick communication and confirmation - which we very much appreciated! Apartment was as described - spacious enough for the 5 adults on this trip. The 2 beds were probably queen size, not king (or at least not as an American king). Kitchen was well equipped. Safe neighborhood and close (5 min) to Butler's Wharf (lots of great restaurants!) and Tower Bridge. We used both the Tower Bridge and London Bridge tube stations - both about a 10 minute walk. Less hilly to walk to London Bridge station than Tower Bridge if you are dragging luggage! We were disappointed that we needed to go out for toilet paper right away, and the towels could definitely use an upgrade. A flat sheet on the beds and some better pillows - all of that would push us to giving a 4 instead of a 3! Wifi worked very well - consistent and a strong signal. Nice to have an elevator too. Apartment was quiet too - and we felt perfectly safe there. Sofa bed in living room was comfortable for one adult too.

The Circle Apartment London

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was in a great location and was exactly what we wanted for 7 people. We traveled with 4 Adults and 3 Teenagers, the accommodations was as listed, two bedrooms with pullout and small cot in the living room. 2 bathrooms were great to get 7 people ready.

Apartment was on an upper floor so the breeze flowed throughout the apartment.

Property was clean and well maintained and Neil was easy to reach to and answered any questions/issues we had. Great customer service provide by both the agent and the door man.

The London Bridge Tube stop is the closest to the apartment, although you can also walk to the Tower Bridge stop also. construction was being done in the streets near the London Bridge tube stop so the RV1 Bus stop was modified. There were other buses which you could ride closer then the tubes.

TESCO is the best place to shop however there is a closer store but not as stocked.

We would stay at this location again or at any other apartment Neil had available. Easy to get into to the SOHO area or West End. It was so nice to stay in this area.

Clean, large rooms, great location. Great communication. A+++

  • 5 of 5

From booking to arrival Neil dealt with everything promptly and efficiently. Highly recommend this apartment. Plenty room for our family and the little roof terrace with view of the Shard is a bonus. Apartment was clean and as described. Quiet neighbourhood even though its central London. Location was superb just behind Butler's Wharf. 5 min stroll to Tower Bridge. Being located between Tower Hill and London Bridge tube stations makes travelling around easy. Approx 10 min walk to either tube. Several supermarkets within a 5 min walk. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. Thanks.

Great Stay in London

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week long stay at this place. Flat is great with 2 bedrooms and two baths. Nice little terrace off both living room and one of the bedrooms. 24 hour reception makes building very safe. Front desk personnel are happy to call a cab for you with a local company. This is a great deal as the cab company will quote you an exact rate to your destination (traffic is so bad in London that when you get in a meter-based cab you can spend a fortune going 4 blocks because the meter is running while you sit in traffic)! Grocery store and many restaurants within a few blocks. A short walk to tower bridge! Distance to other sights is a bit far, but tubes and buses are very close by. Loved having a kitchen with a dishwasher and a washer and dryer!!! Would stay again in a heartbeat!!
