I stayed at a single room. I'm totally okay with the small room because at least the bed was big enough but, everything around water was horrible. The toilet was too easy to be blocked and the shower was so weak. Also, the basin was somehow blocked too. About the cleaning, I stayed for 4 nights but sometimes the litter box wasn't even emptied and the same goes with the bed sheets I guess. There were loads of dish and tea packs and also a microwave in addition to a fridge. If you wanna sometimes have some meals in your room, that would be alright with those. If you're sensitive to the sound, you'll find it hard to sleep because the door is thin and the floor of the corridor is creaking. Another person mentioned but there was a consistent sound which didn't stop all night and prevented me from a good sleep. I didn't try breakfast because almost no review said it was good and we had to go to another hotel to have one. I think the only good things about staying at the single room were the big bed and the accessibility to British Museum...

It was good for an 3 star hotel! Good location, friendly staff, and clean. Mattress was not dissimilar to laying on a pile of coal. The divan base was broken so my wife had to use a pillow to stop herself rolling out of bed onto the 18th century carpet. Weapons grade pins and needles in our feet due to them being elevated above our heads which was a new experience. The toilet flushed...sometimes. The inbuilt cupboard kitchen although functional left a lot to be desired visually due to it have collapsed in the middle. We had to eat breakfast next door in a sister hotel which was wierd although the food was the hotel's saving grace, keeping it in the 3 star rating. The breakfast itself I'll rate as 6.7 out of 10 it was tasty and hot except for the coffee. The photos of the rooms are much better than the actual rooms. For example in the photos the bed is adorned with velvet red throws which we didn't have, in fact we questioned if there was even any bedding on it at first and not a large sheet of crumpled cigarette paper. The television had the screen size of about 6 inches and due to the enormity of the room itelf was located 100yards away from the bed / rockery and the 2 large sofas and twin reading chairs. The furniture was in good condition but very dated. On the vanity desk there was an inscription "SHAKESPEARE WOZ ERE" all in all, it was a large room with ample seating for a football team and everything you need for a stay in central London. Nice staff and good food but don't expect a 4 star hotel. The rooms are in dire need of maintenance and update.
