Besides having one of the neatest names (for all you literary geeks out there) in the history of hotels, it has the most lovely staff. They were knowledgeable, helpful, and kindly. The beds are exceedingly comfortable and the turn down service is perfect. While the rooms are small, they are well appointed.

Our stay started very well indeed with a super warm welcome. We had coffee in the lovely drawing room – bright and cheery and the coffee was delicious (seems a strange thing to comment on, but try it!). The area is great for shopaholics, museum lovers and the Royal Albert Hall. We had a one bedroom suite which had a... More

Superb boutique hotel central to tube and local sites of interest. Staff ensure enjoyable experience by being there but not in your face. Very comfortable room with all amenities including complimentary soft drinks cold cabinet and Times newspaper if required. Highly recommended for that special event.

The Ampersand has a perfect location; a minute's walk to the tube station (South-Kensington) and a few more to some of the main attractions of the city. The hotel has an easy-going atmosphere and the staff's friendliness and interest feels genuine. The breakfast buffet is great, but I couldn't resists the temptation to to add some choices from the menu... More

Very nice hotel and great value for its location. Super convienient location in central london, close to v&a Knightsbridge, south Kent, etc. Rooms are small and service is good but could be better. I would suggest it to friends.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood 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.
