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!

Hotel location is very good and everything works well. Family friendly and peaceful hotel. Tube work well and it is easy to go all destinations in town (only 100 meter from Hotel). Service was good at all.

The Ampersand Hotel is well appointed, but under staffed. In addition, the staff they do have is not trained in hospitality nor knowledgable of the hotel, procedures, or the surrounding area. There is no concierge and if you ask the front desk staff for recommendations or reservations they simply seem bewildered. The most knowledgable staff member is the doorman/bellman/front desk...

The hotel is located in a good position and it has a lot of comforts . All the staff is extremely efficient and courteous. The cleanliness is excellent. I think that for a family it's better to opt for two adjoining rooms because the quality of the third bed contrasts with the great level of this hotel and the room... More

Everything about this hotel ticks the box. Great location, exceptionally friendly staff, beautiful decor and up to date extras such as efficient internet connections and free no alcohol mini bar. My only slight complaint is the size of the rooms, this is a particular problem if you need a twin as two mattresses on one base doesn't really work if... More

Love this hotel despite smallness of standard room which was extremely good value. Front desk (especially Salvatore) and housekeeping staff were outstanding and extremely helpful. Great location too. Lots of nice cafes nearby.

Amazing location very close to South Kensignton Undergound Station. Amazing staff who are a real credit to the hotel and cannot help more with any request. Amazing design. A lovely hotel to visit and we will look forward to returning.

The location was excellent. We asked for a quiet ground floor room and received it. The hotel was quiet and we slept well. The staff were efficient and friendly. Very helpful when asked for advice or directions or to organize a car.

I wanted the perfect, modern London hotel experience and got it. The hotel is charming. The art is lovely. The tea rooms are beautiful. The restaurant is wonderful. We had two connecting rooms for four of us (two children). The rooms are small but that's to be expected. The amenities were wonderful and I loved the bathroom. Overall a wonderful... More

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.
