I think most people would be pretty surprised there are rooms going in any London convents.

St Mary at the Cross, out at Edgware, has a small guest house. Run by Anglican Benedictines - and, yes, they're nuns.

The Daughters of Charity in Carlisle Place SW1 and the Franciscan Sisters of Malta in St George's Drive SW1 are more conventional Catholic orders with small (8-10 bed) guesthouses attached to their Central London convents.

None have websites: google for addresses and phone numbers. No idea what they're like to stay at. There is, of course, a much wider range of accommodation, both in the centre and in the suburbs, religious communities offer as retreat centres and the like.

This isn't quite what you asked for, but I'll post it anyway:

I know there is something in Islington (how's that for vague), but I remember no details at all.

Here's contact info for the Anglican order mentioned by Flanneruk:
