This gem of hospitality is in the perfect location for accessing all of London's delights. Luxurious rooms, complimentary minibar and even a rubber ducky in the tub made this stay exquisite. Decent fitness facility and friendly staff.

We stayed at The Ampersand Hotel May 21 to May 26. It is a beautiful, modern, upscale hotel with excellent service. The staff are wonderful and always ready to help. We were in Room 410 which faced the rear of the building. The room was adequate in size with a King Size bed, couch at the foot of the bed,... More

This hotel exceeded our expectations, from the excellent service response times when we... More

This is our first experience with this hotel, but it did offer us the luxury, warm and friendly expectations, though an upgrade was not made possible allegedly due to non-availability. We were allocated a double room on the 3rd floor with part of city view, but open to a primary school. Fortunately, sufficient insulation to school activities is put in... More

Fantastic stay in a fabulous hotel. Wish we had stayed longer. Great location with easy access to the tube station. The staff were both friendly and knowledgable. The rooms were modern, spacious, clean with comfortable beds. Hotel is beautifully decorated throughout. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stayed here for one night on a trip to Wimbledon. The location was excellent with south kensington tube literally across the road. There are lots of eateries in the immediate area serving a great variety of food and drink. It's a nice area and all the major museums are just a walk away. The hotel itself is very stylish... More

At our Arrival, we have been welcomed by an excellent Afternoon Tea (our lunch and dinner together) with Top Quality sandwiches and marvellous pastries and cakes. We... More

The reviews are spot on. Lovely little boutique hotel! Pros: very clean and attractive decor, very attentive staff, lovely tea room, excellent restaurant (the porridge at breakfast was superb), only 100 yards to the tube station. Cons: unless you want to go to the museums nearby, the location is good but not great; while the bed was great, I didn't... 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
