We stayed at the Ampersand from July 9-13, and what a wonderful stay it was! The hotel is spotless and beautifully decorated, with themes of botany, music, ornithology and astronomy reflected all through the rooms and public area--the hotel has so much character!. I have visited several highly-rated London hotels over the years, and I have to say that the... More

Very good hotel, we visited it for the second time, and wish to stay here next time! We travelled with four children (12 - 17). We asked for twin rooms for them, but they were not available. The beds in the double rooms were too small for two (tall) boys. Twin rooms were available but only for an additional charge... More

Just a minute from South Kensington tube (terribly easy on the PIccadilly line) and a stone's throw to a variety of decent places to eat at. No ready doorman to help with luggage up some stairs but check in was a breeze, the front desk utterly charming and an upgrade with SLH most welcome. Rooms are small but pretty typical... More

Everything was excellent and the bed was so comfy! It was my husbands 50th birthday and they informed us that they had upgraded our room to a deluxe, which was a lovely room. Would love to stay here again in the future.

My wife and I walked passed the Ampersand one day and looked inside and thought we have to stay there some time, so we did. The hotel's interior and rooms are amazing, the bed is to die for and makes it hard to wake up in the morning. i think they must use some sort of 1 million thread count... More

We've become to enjoy staying in South Kensington when in London. The Ampersand has the perfect location in the area, by the South Kensington station. The hotel is very comfortable and decorated in a lovely way. Highlights: wonderful beds with a proper duvet, clean bathrooms, a small but free mini-bar, lovely lounge. Will definately come back!

Hotel is close to Underground South Kensington, to museums and Hyde Park. Many restaurants around. Very friendly personnel. Rooms are small, but ok. Shower was not hot and hairdrying without a mirror an experiment. We booked breakfast with the room. Unfortunately this option is very limited in choice. Whatever is beyond, which is even eggs, is an extra.

We stayed for three nights on a winter-break in top-floor suite (as SLH member got an upgrade). It was (too) short but (very) sweet and enjoyable experience. Service and the overall atmosphere does make a difference for this place. Prepare to be pampered all the way from the moment you make reservation through prompt follow-up after your stay.

We found the location, ambience and service at the Ampersand terrific! While the room was a little small, it was well-appointed, clean and comfortable. Great gym as well! Would definitely recommend to friends and will certainly stay there again in the future.

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
