We stayed in a cozy double room with ensuite bathroom which wasn't as tiny as we feared. I liked how each room comes with a kettle for you to make coffee or tea—really convenient. The neighborhood is great; on my last visit, I stayed near Kings Cross and this is a much quieter part of town but still close enough to plenty of restaurants and grocery stores (e.g. Tesco, Sainsbury's) along nearby Queensway. The breakfast is simple (toast, rolls, cheese, hard-boiled eggs, cereal, canned fruit) but good; make sure to get downstairs early because they have short breakfast hours (until 9am on weekdays and until 9:30am on weekends).
Wifi in the room was spotty. But, I sat on the 2nd floor where there are two chairs by the staircase and got wifi there; you can also go down to the front. There was this big hole in the ceiling of my room which just looked funny but didn't really affect the room itself otherwise. To get to room 14-15, there's a short and pitch dark hallway without any light fixtures; it definitely made it hard to open my door without a flashlight for help.
FYI: There are two other nearby streets also called Craven Hill Gardens so it's easy to get lost. The hotel is on the north most of the three. Look at a map or else you'll end up like the guy I overheard on my last night who got turned around for 35 minutes in the rain and started yelling at the front desk as if they had control over how the city of London decided to name their streets.
