Location was perfect for us, very close to metro, museums, even hyde park. Hotel itself is very nice, rooms very well appointed. Check-in and checkout were extremely fast. Staff was very helpful in answering different questions we had or in solving our minor issues during the stay. Would definitely return on my next stay in London.

We arrived to find our room upgraded to a Suite and it was fabulous. We weren’t sure that our first room could have been topped but this room was beyond our expectations. Small rooftop balcony, full equipped kitchen, huge comfortable bed, wide range of toiletries and bathroom accessories and complimentary mini bar making our stay a truly memorable. My husband...

Had a wonderful stay @ the '&'. Large, clean, stylish and comfortable room. Great location with easy access to transport options. Apero was perfect for breakfast and 'London reasonable' price wise. By far, though, the best part of our stay was the staff - unpretentious, pleasant and helpful to a fault - kudos to the management for developing such a... More

Well positioned for transport and attractions, great value for money, the best of the four hotels we stayed in during our trip in Europe. Loved our stay, the staff were very welcoming and accommodating.

Our stay was once again truly wonderful! The Ampersand is a beautiful, very friendly and perfectly situated hotel. A quiet heaven in busy London. Check-in is super efficient and remembers the preferences from the last stays. Breakfast is very fresh, delicious and generous. The Nespresso machine in the room is such an added value. We enjoy the easiness of the... 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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With some of the most stylish hotel rooms in Kensington, The Ampersand is a privately-owned luxury London hotel that combines contemporary excellence in design, service, food and technology in an 1888 building at the capital's heart. We have been inspired by those great Victorian values of discovery and wonder - and given them a modern, whimsical twist. The result: a cosmopolitan, 111-room luxury boutique hotel, bar, restaurant and drawing rooms, delivering 21st-century warmth, humour and total comfort.The Ampersand Hotel is situated just a minute's walk from South Kensington tube station, and is well connected to Heathrow airport. ... more   less
