I booked during a promotion period that enabled us to get a room at this stunning modern hotel for a tiny fraction of the price one would need to fork out for other places in South Kensington. The location is fantastic - the tube station is about 100m away, boujis (the club) is practically next door and all the big... More

This is the 6th visit this year, and I always come back with a new set of relatives or friends. Front desk staff very good and the rooms are so lovely and quiet. The best feature is free wifi and free water, juice and milk in the mini bar. Such a nice touch! Great location and easy to get around,... More

Cheap by London standards the rooms at the Ampersand are modern and the staff very helpful. It is near the underground in South Kensington. A great location. Our room was stuffy as air/con was not working properly, but we were given an excellent complimentary breakfast.

My wife and I booked a Deluxe room as it was described as "Space to relax." We were initially offered a wheelchair access room on the ground floor, which was reasonably spacious, but there was a tiny robe and few draws. No sooner than we had unpacked we became conscious of the constant rumble of trains from the tube below... More

This was a very stylish hotel, but not very practical. The kettle was in the small wardrobe and couldn't be used while also hanging clothing. The bathroom door wouldn't open all the way. There didn't seem to be a way to turn down (or off) the heated bathroom floors which were too hot for our tastes. The room was small... More

Excellent location, nice decoration, great staff but very expensive comparison to same class hotels.Rooms are small and they are not perfectly organized, it was hard to find a mirror for make up or to find a place for ironing.

Super venue near the tube and ideal for business meetings - very smart and quiet. Lunch was very generous with the most amazing sea bream, saffron risotto and super tomato salad (the tomatoes were really ripe and tasty). Great food and good service.

Fantastic stay, chic hotel in a fantastic location right across from subway. Knowledgeable and friendly staff at the hotel. Food quality was very good and room service is served within 15 mins which is much quicker than normal hotels

Excellent location in South Kensington and good tips from the hotel personnel for evening restaurants and other locations. I recommend this hotel to short weekend trips or even loger stay in London. Breakfast should be inclueded to the SLH rate!!!

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
