The hotel provided excellent services before, during and after our stay. Before, because for some reason I had to direct a delivery from my online purchase to the concierge before I check-in. Staff was prompt in acknowledging my request. Next I had to call the hotel to arrange for a pick-up from Victoria coach station, which was also done without... More

I was in London for the beginning of the Alexander McQueen exhibition and chose the Ampersand simply because it was so close to the V&A. What a brilliant choice it turned out to be. I was hoping for a lot from my one-night stay: to feel pampered, relaxed and super-comfortable. And that's just what I got. The free (soft drink)... More

This is a wonderful hotel in South Kensington. The exterior has a classic residential look. Reception area is lovely with a very pleasant drawing room nearby where tea and cocktails are served. The bar and restaurant are on the lower level. We booked a deluxe studio, and it was perfect. It is large, luxurious and has a bay window, a... More

My wife and I rarely get the chance to go away without the kids, so when we do, it needs to be somewhere special. There are hundreds of 5 star hotels in London, so which one to chose? Room sizes are notoriously small in London, so this was a major consideration, as was a big bed (goes hand in hand... More

My husband and I had a delightful time at the Ampersand Hotel. The atmosphere, location, pricing, comforts...everything was perfect. We had several options to get around town to tour and to eat within walking distance or a quick hop onto the tubes across the street. This was a fantastic choice for our first trip to London, we hope to visit... More

On my first business trip to London. I enjoyed the stay a lot. Great room and nice welcome. Super nice to get the umbrella help out to grab a Taxi. HOtel is close to the tue and trains. Easy to catch a taxi outside and breakfast was nice as well. Order whatever you like.

Excellent hotel, beautiful interior, so stylish, and so clean. For any couple this is a romantic and relaxing stay. We just loved it. So close to Kensington tube station, gorgeous boutiques and devine eateries. It was perfect. I would recommend to anyone. Only issue what no pug near mirror to blow dry hair and rooms quite small.

This is an excellent hotel, both comfortable and stylish. The staff are helpful and friendly. The standard of the food in the restaurant is a pleasant surprise and the rooms are well appointed, though small but that is to be expected in most major cities in the world where space is at a premium. The hotel is minutes from the... More

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.
