Typically stay at the Kensington hotel but decided to give the Ampersand a try given they had a deal on. We like to stay in South Kensington because it is off the Piccadilly line and easy to take to Heathrow. Now the Ampersand is convenient, literally 1 minute walk from the tube station. The check-in was quick and warm, though... More

Fantastic staff, extremely clean rooms, pleasant service, lovely drawing room. I would definitely come back. Rooms are a bit on the small side, but bed is super-comfortable and bathrooms are spacious.

We stayed at the Ampersand for a second time in February 2015. The hotel is in a wonderful location being close to South Kensington tube and a five minute walk to King's road. Staff are incredibly friendly and they were kind enough to give us an upgrade as it was my birthday. The hotel is modern, well furnished and has... More

Enjoyable stay at The Ampersand. Nice district and vibe. Cool small hotel with polite but not extravagant posh service. Exactly as i like it. Food in the restaurant was amazing. Greatings to the staff that where polite and service minded in a relaxed way.

First time visit, excellent location right near tube station. Stayed in the Drawing Room which had a huge, comfortable bed, large shower, excellent facilities. Stayed one night on a Saturday, got a deal through Mr & Mrs Smith £163 as a birthday treat for my sister. I would recommend anyone stay here, we both thoroughly enjoyed it.

My daughter and I stayed at the Ampersand for a week and were very happy there. Our first room was a bit noisy (construction outside), so staff were great in switching us to a new room. Overall, great service, lovely room!

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

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.
