The Ampersand's rooms are beautiful and comfortable. Everything is very high-tech, with electronic panels controlling all sorts of things. I found the hotel staff to be professional and accommodating. The location is excellent: near the Victoria & Albert Museum and right around the corner from the South Kensington tube station. The Picadilly line goes through the South Kensington station, and... More

Beautifully furnished Boutique-Hotel. Small, but lovely and clean rooms, with very comfortable beds. Great interior design. Nice staff, especially the italian team in the breakfast restaurant: Always in a good mood, polite and attentive. The hotel is pretty expensive (like all good ones in London), but worth the price. Nice breakfast buffet. We'll be back.

We stayed at the Ampersand first time in 2013 as we quite like the hotel size, the decoration and the location. The hotel is right off the South Kensington underground station where also close to Hyde Park, Kensington Park and restaurants area. We can walk to Knightsbridge within 10 mins. Very easy to commute around London from here either walking... More

We stayed in this lovely hotel for 4 nights. This was our first trip to London. We booked a superior room and requested a room on a higher floor on the opposite side of the tube stop. Upon check in, I was given a room exactly as requested! The check in process was very efficient. The room was nicely decorated... More

We booked three rooms and stayed two nights at Ampersand Hotel and we were so happy with our stay! The location is fantastic for museum visits, and the hotel makes a great base for exploring around town. The taxi stand is in front of the hotel, and bus stops are right at the corner. Our kids walked to the museum/s,... More

We stayed at the Ampersand for 3 nights last summer and loved it. The room was beautifully appointed, the bathroom generously sized, and the service was excellent. We can't wait to stay there again next summer when we travel to London.

I stayed there with my children and mother for 6 days and love the hotel so much. It is very homey and comfortable, small but complete with everything we need, even more complete than some bigger hotels. My children love playing table tennis in the game room. On the first night my mother requested a rubber mat for the bath... More

A very convenient hotel, near the tube and museums. Really nice decoration and other facilities, as the library. Loved the space and amenities of the bathroom, and breakfast. Really nice the complimentary glass of champagne and the Mac available in the business area. Staff of high quality.

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.
