After a flight delay into London and having trouble finding the place because of its terrible location we were happy to finally arrive. However, the website said it would be 24/7 check in and the building was locked and nobody would let us in. We had to stay in another hotel that night and when we arrived the next day the manager said he could not afford to keep people all night anymore and unwillingly refunded our money for that night. The next day when we arrived to stay again he told us that he forgot we were coming back that day and booked our room to someone else (even though we clearly told him what time and day we would be back). The location is extremely shady and hard to find... even the police told us that it is a bad area.
