Chic, smart and comfortable. Room was lovely, nice details. Refreshing to stay in a small hotel, excellent service. Breakfast was very good. Location so handy for tube and museums. Would definitely stay again, recommend to anyone wanting a more personal touch

Despite a request for an upper floor room when booking 3 months earlier a ground floor room looking out at a bus stop was presented as the only available room. After indicating that we were not prepared to stay was a quite nice room on the 4th floor eventually found. NOT GOOD ENOUGH.

Firstly, I would like to say that our overall experience at the Ampersand was excellent. However, when we arrived at the hotel at midday in the middle of a huge down pour after walking from the tube station with all our luggage there wasn't anyone available to open the hotel door or help us lift our luggage up the staircase...

We just returned from London and staying at the Ampersand Hotel was one of the highlights of our short stay. We are from Los Angeles and took a chance based on others' reviews and we were not disappointed! The staff are all incredibly polite, solicitous, knowledgeable and extraordinarily friendly. Every staff member we encountered was this way. They are quite... More

The Ampersand Hotel was a wonderful respite from the crazy days in London. Calm and beautifully decorated, you feel relaxed upon entering. The location is great for getting around the city to most attractions, just a half block to the tube, there were almost always taxis queued up outside and a bus line directly out front. Our room was large... More

Upon arrival we were able to move into a larger room which meant much as we were staying for 6 nights. All staff were superb and we so appreciated the location with a great many restaurants, cafés and South Kensington train station so close.

Let's begin with positives. Newly-refurbished in recent years, The Ampersand is a really beautiful property. The lobby, public rooms, and guest rooms are very nicely designed and richly appointed. Their website is one of the best I've experienced, giving you the ability to customize your reservation, make a request of the staff, and book a dinner reservation at great list... More

Very good hotel, poor wifi. Good service, nice room, great bathrooms, excellent restaurant and tea room. Nice three nights for the price of two deal. Great location near South Kensington station. Don't stay if you need good wifi.

We have just returned from our 1st wedding anniversary break at The Ampersand Hotel and I really cannot sing the praises of this place enough! As we approached this beautiful, grand hotel in a perfect central location less than a minute from South Kensington tube I knew we'd picked a great hotel and it just kept getting better from the...

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
