My wife and I booked a Deluxe room as it was described as "Space to relax." We were initially offered a wheelchair access room on the ground floor, which was reasonably spacious, but there was a tiny robe and few draws. No sooner than we had unpacked we became conscious of the constant rumble of trains from the tube below... More

This was a very stylish hotel, but not very practical. The kettle was in the small wardrobe and couldn't be used while also hanging clothing. The bathroom door wouldn't open all the way. There didn't seem to be a way to turn down (or off) the heated bathroom floors which were too hot for our tastes. The room was small... More

Excellent location, nice decoration, great staff but very expensive comparison to same class hotels.Rooms are small and they are not perfectly organized, it was hard to find a mirror for make up or to find a place for ironing.

Super venue near the tube and ideal for business meetings - very smart and quiet. Lunch was very generous with the most amazing sea bream, saffron risotto and super tomato salad (the tomatoes were really ripe and tasty). Great food and good service.

Excellent location in South Kensington and good tips from the hotel personnel for evening restaurants and other locations. I recommend this hotel to short weekend trips or even loger stay in London. Breakfast should be inclueded to the SLH rate!!!

We spent the night of our wedding here and were very happy with our choice. We were treated to a free glass of champagne and were upgraded to a deluxe room which was very nice. The room & bathroom were lovely, the staff very welcoming and the breakfast delicious. An excellent hotel.

The hotel allowed us to check in early (subject to availability) so that we didn't have to travel in our wedding clobber as the ceremony was due to start at 12:00. Had our room not been available early they had also offered the use... 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
