Great location by South Ken underground. Modern stylish hotel in an old building. Staff friendly and efficient . Room very small but comfortable with plenty of nice touches. Bed comfortable and hotel pretty quiet so a good nights sleep. Bathroom had a great shower and nice toiletries

Someone is at the door to greet you almost every time you come in to the hotel. Free drinks in the mini-frig and a free treat everyday make for a nice welcome. Many excellent places to eat nearby make this a great spot to stay. Very easy access to Heathrow via the Piccadilly Line. Was worried about the noise reported... More

We stayed in a larger double and truly enjoyed our time. The staff was very helpful, the room was clean, and we really enjoyed the small details such as the loofas and bath products, water and soda in room, and available tea cakes in the lounge. We thought the location in South Kensington was an excellent balance for a neighborhood... More

We stayed in this hotel for six nights and couldn't be happier. The hotel is pleasant and beautifully decorated. The rooms are stylish and very well appointed and the hotel service is impeccable. The staff was extremely responsive to our needs and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and Indira,... More

Very nice and comfortable hotel and very friendly staff - the "design" was fun and not in your face. Location is great for all arriving from Heathrow and wanting to explore downtown. Not cheap but well worth while the price

I should qualify that. The Ampersand is much nicer than our home. I want to live here. So I stay here every time we come to London. The staff is so friendly I feel like I have friends right here in the city. The design is so top notch that every where I look I have a reason to smile.... More

The room was larger than I expected. The decor is clean and modern-love the tap to unlock. The free cold beverages are a very nice touch. The bathroom was lovely, with robes to use. , with robes to use.

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
