    Hi. Reception isn't open 24 hours but sister hotel Phoenix next door is and no problem dropping off or picking up keys. They have a board specifically for KHG keys so process is quick.

    Just stayed there. Super-friendly reception. They are open from 8a-5p. After 5p, you have to drop off or pick up your key from the Phoenix Hotel, just a few doors down. Not an inconvenience at all.

    BTW Tube is Metro or Subway in London English, Gatewick express is a direct train from the Gatwick airport to the City. You can purchise all tickets online in advance. And then just showing your QR codes.
