Checking in late Royal National

4 Apr 2009 EricaVista09 said

Hey guys,<BR><BR>Does anyone know if the reception at the Royal National is 24hour or what time you can check in to? My plane gets in around 7-7.30 and then the tube ride to the hotel - I know its not really late but just wanted to make sure!! Also what time does it get dark in July and is the tube safe at night to travel alone on, oviously being a tourist!<BR>Thanks <img src="" alt="Razzer" width="15" height="15"><!--graemlin::p-->

    I have never encountered a European hotel that did not have 24H front desk on a Contiki. Royal National is no exception and has a 24H front desk to receive clients (as well as the sister hotel, the Imperial).

    I did a check in at the Imperial at either 8pm or 10 pm and had no problems check in, they are staffed 24 hours.

    So you know, they keep the keys at the desk, you don’t take them out of the hotel, so reception must be staffed 24 hours. When you come in you get your key and when you leave for the day you leave it with reception. Though I think the RN is converting to key cards that you can keep.
