The room was a bit small but the website did say it was. Great hi tech. You should not ask for so much characters in your feed back. The location to the tube and museums is excellent also restaurants etc

My sister and I stayed at the Ampersand in June. I had done a lot of research online and read reviews in order to arrive at our decision to stay here. Believe me, I was not disappointed! Actually, it was even better than I had imagined. The hotel is beautiful and full of character. It is unique and fun in...

The Ampersand was a nice surprise. We didn't know the hotel beforehand. Everything worked her: the booking, the check-in, the always smiling and helpful staff, the room with all sorts of extras and the wonderful brunch we had Sunday morning. And the price is right!

We stayed at The Ampersand for one night and it was fantastic!! We had informed the hotel we were getting into London early and had requested early check in- not only did we get an early check in but we were upgraded to a suite!!! The suite was beautiful, modern, clean and even had a balcony and complimentary mini bar!...

We had a really fabulous stay at the Ampersand Hotel. I booked a Superior Double Room and, having read that some rooms are nicer (and quieter) than others, I called up about a week before to request a quiet room. When we got there we were given a free upgrade, and the hotel even arranged a massage with just a...

Room was clean but very dark as it was located at the back of the building. The service at breakfast was slow and haphazard. The bar staff were very attentive. Overall a good hotel but not as pleasurable as a previous stay.

We stayed here for three nights in mid December in a Deluxe room. We were fortunate to be able to avail of a "three nights for the price of two" offer which made our stay amazing value for money. The hotel is located less than 5 minutes walk from South Kensington tube station - particularly useful if coming from Heathrow....

Everything about the Ampersand was fantastic. I had traveled overnight and arrived early, astonished I was able to get in my room early. The room was gorgeous, the bed comfortable, the toiletries of the best quality. A phone to navigate around the neighborhood and make calls was available too. Room service was the best I've had in any hotel as...

The Ampersand remains one of my favourite hotels in London. This was my second stay at the hotel following my engagement there the previous year!

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With some of the most stylish hotel rooms in Kensington, The Ampersand is a privately-owned luxury London hotel that combines contemporary excellence in design, service, food and technology in an 1888 building at the capital's heart. We have been inspired by those great Victorian values of discovery and wonder - and given them a modern, whimsical twist. The result: a cosmopolitan, 111-room luxury boutique hotel, bar, restaurant and drawing rooms, delivering 21st-century warmth, humour and total comfort.The Ampersand Hotel is situated just a minute's walk from South Kensington tube station, and is well connected to Heathrow airport. ... more   less
