Stayed in a Deluxe room at the Ampersand for three nights on business in mid-October. Hotel is new in that it was purchased and completely renovated, and reopened recently. Small and quiet, with small but well-appointed exercise room with new gym equipment/cardio machines. Outstanding service from the front desk to housekeeping. Requests were followed up within a short time, assistance on where to eat, how to get places, etc., was pleasantly and thoroughly provided, including arranging room service breakfast before the normal breakfast hours. Room was decently-sized for London, very attractive, good lighting, reasonable desk, and the best bed and pillows I've had in any hotel, regardless of caliber. Best feature: mini-frig stocked with complimentary water, Coke, juices, and even a little container of milk for coffee/tea. Bathroom was comfortably sized, good shower, plush towels, bathrobe and slippers. Exceptionally clean. Location is superb with many small table service and quick service restaurants, bakeries and express food stores anywhere from across the street to an easy couple minutes walk away. Tube stop (South Kensington) a short half block down the street. Lots of cabs available in area, too. Heathrow Express shuttle service got me from hotel to the airport for 15 pounds, far less than cabs and hotel's car service.
