No problems at all at Tennyson House

Peter Lester, Hungarian

For the price I paid it was good. Don't expect a hotel or a hotel room as you are paying such a cheap price for a single room (with WiFi, shared toilet, bath) in one of the most expensive cities in the world. I confirmed my arrival time via email and texts. I only wanted a separate room where i could use WiFi internet on my laptop and it was enough for me. There is a small kitchen like any normal house would have, you can use microwave, kettle, cups, spoons if you buy your own milk, tea, sugar etc. Overall for the price I paid I am satisfied

My room at Tennyson House was quite big and nice I guess. The place isn't a 5 star hotel keep that in mind but for the price I paid I was very satisfied. It's not hard to find it's quite close to the tube station (10-15 minute walk or you can take a bus). Everyone was nice and we didn't have any complications. I give the place a thumbs up because for that price I got a good room and that is all that matters, and Wifi is good there :D

I was very uncomfortable during my stay at Tennyson House. It is very dirty, there seems to be a leak from the ground and I didn't use the kitchen due to the mess.
