Very good hotel near South Kengsington. Good service, good rooms and very good breakfast. When I come in London I always choose the Ampersand. Good position and very comfortable beds. Service excellent

From now on this is my first option hotel in London without kids. Small luxury hotel, great service, decoration and food. Walking distance to amazing restaurants, metro, harrods, museums, and so on. The only downside is the limited size of some rooms. We felt very unconfortable the first time we were there, so in the next time we got a... More

Here I am again praising The Ampersand: the warm welcoming, the nice and clean rooms, the Victorian-style bathrooms to kill for (to me the showers are best one can have away from home) For the first time I came with my partner and he also enjoyed it, he focuses more and the location, the rich continental breakfast and the super...

After almost 5 weeks of travelling around Iceland and Scotland, we were in the final days before heading back to Australia and were at this point frankly buggered. Reception and check-in at the Ampersand was without fuss. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Upon being shown to our room, we took in the great view of Harrington road and my... More

We received a warm welcome from reception staff who offered to provide information on the local area. We stayed in a music themed room which was comfortable, light and airy. The bathroom had under-floor heating which was appreciated on a cold January weekend! Other nice touches included Eric Clapton's autobiography on the bedside table and a rubber duck in the... More

This was my 6th stay here, and the staff are fantastic, the rooms delightful (but very small), impeccably clean and comfortable. A gem of a place to stay. For business or for fun, zi love the locale and the quiet.

I recently stayed at the Ampersand Hotel for three nights. I had booked a superior room and had asked for a high floor. I got a very quiet room facing the back of the hotel which was perfect. From the heated bathroom floor to the large walk in shower and King size bed I could not ask for more. The... More

Wonderful hotel in South Kensington, great location right near a Underground Station. The included water and soft drinks in the room as made our six day stay so much more pleasant without having to buy and carry the water and soda. Staff incredibly helpful and nice. Highly recommend for a nice stay in London.

don't go to room 203 if you are claustrophobic. all you will see is a wall of next door building through the window. But we are not and in light of the rest of the stay all is forgiven. The bathroom is wonderful. underfloor heating. the stuff are very courteous, efficient, helpful (they told us about existence of valet service... 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.
