All the staff very compromised! Very well located! Specials mediterraneans meals - Chief Chris is great ! Clean and modern! I would recommend to everyone! Just be careful if arriving by car (bus stop in front door).

Steps to the South Kensington tube stop and numerous restaurants as well just a few blocks to many museums this is a great hotel. The staff is very attentive to all details. The king size bed was very comfortable and... More

I really like this hotel, this was my second experience the first one was last year 2013. The staff are so friendly and the service provided is excellent. There is one thing which I hope to consider which is the small size of single rooms.

In a great location, steps from the South Kensington Underground station, this charming hotel was perfect in every detail. My room was small, but charming with a luxuriously comfortable bed, complimentary minibar and even a heated bathroom floor! They have thought of every detail for guests comfort. The staff were helpful and delightful. And for all this luxury, the price... More

We were greeted by very friendly and courteous staff at check in all the way to check out. Beautiful hotel and facilities and great location less than 100 meters from South Kensington station and a bus stop right outside. Spotlessly clean.

Great location, Circle, Piccadilly and District line close by. Great restaurants (not that expensive, really popular) near by if you check the recommendations online. Rooms are nicely decorated, bed was comfortable, great bath products. We had a room that was quiet during night. Nice staff. Easy to book online and to check in and out.

I booked during a promotion period that enabled us to get a room at this stunning modern hotel for a tiny fraction of the price one would need to fork out for other places in South Kensington. The location is fantastic - the tube station is about 100m away, boujis (the club) is practically next door and all the big... More

This is the 6th visit this year, and I always come back with a new set of relatives or friends. Front desk staff very good and the rooms are so lovely and quiet. The best feature is free wifi and free water, juice and milk in the mini bar. Such a nice touch! Great location and easy to get around,... More

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
