Selected this hotel purely for it's location near the Victoria and Albert Museum and I wasn't disappointed, it was perfect! Near some great little restaurants and within walking distance to all of the luxury branded and high street shops. Also there's the added bonus of the tube station right across the street from the Hotel. We were given a complimentary... More

The hotel seems newly renovated and is very clean and sleek looking. Location is fantastic - you can literally see the tube station from the front door of the hotel. About an 8-10 minute tube ride from the Westminster area. Seems like a pretty central location. One awesome thing was the umbrellas available for the guests to use all day...super... More

My husband booked this hotel for two reasons: to get us near Hyde Park, and to put a pub called Anglesea Arms within walking distance. The hotel provided an amazing experience as the first lodgings on our travels through the UK. We stayed in room 14, an interior room on the ground floor. No view to speak of, but since... More

I stayed with my partner for one night in this gorgeous boutique hotel. We opted for the standard room, which was a mistake, as it was tiny and I think designed for one person. Thankfully it was just for one night otherwise I would have requested a different room. Bathroom was in very good condition and had a decent size... More

The perfect hotel for your London vacation. The staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable and the hotel is gorgeously decorated and very comfortable! We loved the bathroom toiletries and amenities and heated floors...and the umbrellas are so adorable!

Stayed here last weekend for 1 night with partner. Great location close to tube station and some excellent bars and restaurants. Loved the decor/style of public areas. Bedroom and bathroom of high quality and spotlessly clean - best hotel bed I have ever slept in. Miller Harris bathroom products lovely. All staff very helpful and friendly. Good breakfast. Will definitely... More

The Ampersand's rooms are beautiful and comfortable. Everything is very high-tech, with electronic panels controlling all sorts of things. I found the hotel staff to be professional and accommodating. The location is excellent: near the Victoria & Albert Museum and right around the corner from the South Kensington tube station. The Picadilly line goes through the South Kensington station, and... More

Beautifully furnished Boutique-Hotel. Small, but lovely and clean rooms, with very comfortable beds. Great interior design. Nice staff, especially the italian team in the breakfast restaurant: Always in a good mood, polite and attentive. The hotel is pretty expensive (like all good ones in London), but worth the price. Nice breakfast buffet. We'll be back.

We stayed at the Ampersand first time in 2013 as we quite like the hotel size, the decoration and the location. The hotel is right off the South Kensington underground station where also close to Hyde Park, Kensington Park and restaurants area. We can walk to Knightsbridge within 10 mins. Very easy to commute around London from here either walking... More

We stayed in this lovely hotel for 4 nights. This was our first trip to London. We booked a superior room and requested a room on a higher floor on the opposite side of the tube stop. Upon check in, I was given a room exactly as requested! The check in process was very efficient. The room was nicely decorated... 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.
