We stayed here for two nights. From the moment we walked to the front doors we were greeted by very pleasant attentive staff. I loved the decor, I loved the rooms, the bar and the cocktails.
The drawing room is a must , coffee or tea and cake. I can not fault this hotel. We will return, I hope !

Excellent location and extremely helpful and friendly staff. The atmosphere in the hotel was stylish and comfortable and would love to try the afternoon tea at the next visit. The room was spacious and very comfortable, quiet and peaceful. Top rating

Stayed one night. Great service at the front desk. The receptionist was very polite and attentive. Booked us an excellent tapas restaurant at short notice. Great location. Rooms are fine. Cost of the room is predictably high for this part of London so by definition not expensive in relative terms. Would recommend. Cannot comment on food as we did not eat in the hotel.

I love the style of this hotel (a bit Scandinavian) and the location is just perfect (South Kensington tube station) with the museums as a backdrop.
Although the breakfast restaurant is in the basement, is has a nice & relaxed atmosphere. There could be a bit more choice at the buffet, but then it's a smaller luxury hotel with a very fair price, so that's absolutely fine.

Only 'negative': As with many upper-market hotels, many of the staff are "over-friendly", which feels fake, including unnecessary small-talk. I prefer a more authentic, down-to-earth style of service (which can still be very kind and caring).

In total good value-for-money! (Hey, it's London and the Ampersand is a high-class hotel with a perfect location. Believe me, I've been to other much more expensive hotels in London, which offer less while charging more.)

Some of the friendliest and most personable service in all of London, hands down. Great hotel, OUTSTANDING service, fine location, excellent value. Recommend the studio rooms as they are spacious, and include heated bathroom floors
