One thing you need to know about this hotel before anything else is that being on Gower Street is extremely noisy. There are 24h buses and serious traffic on this street very early in the morning. We were given a room in the basement which was also close to a very loud central fan/heater (?) and couldn't sleep all night.
As many Georgian buildings, the walls separating levels are very thin and the floors creek , you can hear everything from your neighbour above. They decided to have showers at 3am and it really felt like their bathroom was in our room. Speaking of bathrooms, our was absolutely tiny and had a slide door which didn't actually sealed in the smells/steam. Shower door broken and the whole shower cabin area was musty. The room itself was tiny but probably not all are so small, in which case they should charge different rates, I don’t think is OK to pay the full price for a room in the basement they probably have problems renting out.
We had full English breakfast which was tiny and average (bacon tasted stale), they serve instant coffee probably the same you have near the kettle in your room. I would say is good for a B&B but pretends to be and costs 4 stars.
As everywhere in London, you get very little for your money.
