We stayed at the Ampersand in late June at the time of the Wimbledon. The room rate was very expensive at that time and did not correspond to the quality of the room which was really small and relatively dark due to the placement of the window. I do not know if the rate was extremely high at that time... More

The hotel is beautifully decorated with friendly staff and some lovely touches but ...the food was below average! We would return if the food is addressed. You could get better food in a local cafe! A real shame!

The Location was excellent, the staff very helpful and the Food was great, but our room #101 was way too small and without real daylight, like hole :-(. The Apero Restaurant was lovely, espcially the italian staff, Service was great!

Even though the room was small, it was very cozy. The design of the hotel is very modern. Staff are friendly and food in the restaurants are nice. I would highly recommend living in rooms facing the back (not the street) as it is quieter. The room is also very comfortable. Would highly recommend this hotel.

From the moment we checked in everything was wonderful. The room, while not large, was stylishly decorated and we loved the fridge with free soft drinks. We had lunch the first day in the library which was wonderful and the bacon sandwich at breakfast is one of the best I have tasted. Being situated a minutes walk from South Ken... More

Lovely, elegant room, on the ground floor (in London - surprise!). Deep baths, cossetting towels & robes, underfloor bathroom heating - proper luxury. Friendly staff, oh so convenient location for Central London and late at night, you can feel the tube trains rumbling by underground!

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.
