Booked via Mr & Mrs Smith so got the free champagne and chocolates! This is a lovely hotel with great staff. Our room was fine although smaller than we normally have in London, but we only really sleep there! Wifi is strong all over the hotel, and you have personal login for your room that is super fast!

Fabulous hotel. Always so warm and welcoming. Beautifully furnished. Ideal location, next to South Kensington tube station. Great shops and restaurants in the area. Near Museums and walking distance to Harrods. See you again in 2015 !!

We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of our 5 week holiday. I had booked a suite to ensue that we had space to relax and rest before the long flight back to Australia. I was very disappointed with suite, the bedroom did have a king bed which took up the whole space there was very little natural... More

I loved staying at the Ampersand so much, I hated to leave. I am in withdrawal. It is SO charming, so perfect. I felt welcomed the moment I walked in the door and well taken care of here. Let me count the ways: The location in South Kensington is terrific. The South Kensington tube station is across the street. It's... More

I was excited to discover a new hotel had opened in south kensignton. I wasn't disappointed by the location, rooms or amenities. Wonderful stay! I would definitely recommend this hotel for future work or pleasure visits.

A group of friends got together in a room at the hotel last weekend. We were made really welcome by the staff at reception and by those who served the lunch - I would certainly recommend it for food an service, and consider staying there in the future - it is in an ideal position for the museums and close...

This is a hotel to keep on your short list. It's a gem of a boutique hotel opposite South Kensington tube station. I booked for one night through Mr and Mrs Smith and got a great rate plus a little extra of petits fours and a glass of champagne. Check in was efficient and then the receptionist took me to...

A sensational hotel, great styling, beautiful room, afternoon tea to dream. The whole hotel is perfectly decorated. The location in Kensington is great. Subway station directly at the hotel. Certainly a highligt in London. We will definitely go back.

Beautiful hotel, with friendly and welcoming staff team. Room was lovely although smaller than we anticipated but having not previously stayed in london this may be a general thing. We stayed in a double executive room which was beautifully decorated, bathroom was lovely and all the little things had been thought of which was a nice touch; complimentary hot and... 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.
