After discovering the Ampersand Hotel I do not stay anywhere else whilst in London. The superior rooms are great, the restaurant also, the location is perfect, and service of course superb. They also have a small gym. This makes the hotel perfect for business as well as pleasure. I just love it!

This was my second time visiting the Ampersand with my wife and I can't fault it. Great staff and lovely surroundings. If you stay here you need to try some of the cocktails. You hardly want to leave the hotel and the buffet breakfast is a feast.

I love coming here for a drink alone, for the atmosphere. Their lounge is beautifully designed, with colourful seats, mirror tables, funny and thoughtful paintings, good background soul / jazz music, and loose leaf tea and cakes. I love the Lucellino winged light-bulbs that run all the way up the stairwell, it's an arresting sight. Cozy, comfortable, beautiful, smells nice,... More

Travelled into London for a 2 day break with the family. This was one of the best hotels we have stayed at in any of the worlds capitals at any price point, how they do it I just don't know. The hotel ticks all the boxes and offers exceptional value for a London hotel, the staff have to be commended... More

Large bed suffers from non-breathing plastic tops. Food invoicing does not correspond to menu-items. Complex online reservation. Studio room very nice and good size but lacks adequate storage for cloths. Room service keeps turning up the heating to 23.

It is a very nice hotel, in a wonderful position literally just around the corner from South Kensington tube station. Room was very small but comfortable, staff was helpful and very kind. All very clean and tidy. I didn't like the room temperature (I had to open windows when it was around 0°C outside!!) and the fact that they kept... More

My nine-year-old daughter and I stayed at the Ampersand for three nights during her half-term holiday. As the Great British weather can’t really be depended upon in February, we decided on South Kensington so that we could go with the ‘weather-safe’ option of visiting the Natural History, Science and V&A museums all of which are - quite literally - a...

Most of the time I can't wait to get out of hotels. This was our second stay at the hotel in the same room on a 2 for 1 offer in the studio room. Love the attention we get at the cosy reception area which has the lifts immediately adjacent. The room is big and decor soothingly calm. Bolstered by... More

Quirky and cute, this hotel is a joy. Lovely clean rooms, fun but classy theme and lovely staff. I enjoyed two nights here with my daughter and am already planning out next trip. Great location for Knightsbridge, Kensington and Chelsea and lots to do in the area.

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.
