We really felt at home and relaxed at this hotel. The room and bathroom, a deluxe double, was a good size and very comfortable. The room was slightly dark and the outlook wasn't great but this did not detract from our experience and it was very quiet. The hotel was stylishly decorated. The location is superb and the staff very...

This is a great hotel. Wonderful location near the South Kensington tube station, lots of restaurants nearby. Rooms are small but very nice, bathrooms have large showers and are very pretty. We stayed here for 5 nights and loved it.

Wonderful hotel with great staff. At check-in they worked hard to get us a room very early, and called (while we were enjoying breakfast in one of the lovely near-by shops) when the room was ready. The near-by museums are incredible, and the location is good. We took the underground from Heathrow -- super easy and exactly 45 minutes. The...

The Ampersand was very comfortable, modestly modern and luxurious with some unique, but not unnecessarily flash, decor. Perfectly placed for the V&A and neighbouring galleries and a short walk to The Kings Road and Knightsbridge. We stayed in a beautifully decorated deluxe studio which was plenty big enough and came with some complimentary nice touches such as fresh milk in...

This was a great stopping off point for a stopover in London - having found a deal online it was also a very reasonable one too. It's very handy for South Ken tube (a minute's walk) and therefore all the other attractions that South Ken has to offer. Service was very friendly and efficient, the surroundings are fairly plush, modern...

This hotel is beautiful. We have two 'favourite' hotels in London and this one may have just topped one of them particularly considering the very reasonable price. The whole building is immaculate, beautifully designed and the staff incredibly friendly and helpful. We agree with other reviews that the rooms are a little on the small side but for a two...

I will for sure come back to the Ampersand. Everything was perfect except maybe the breakfast room a little too small but it's not really a point... The rooms were really nice with a wide bathroom and everything you need. The fact that you have a smartphone available to take with you and with internet access and call for free...

Lovely stay! The staff is very welcoming. The hotel is beautifully appointed with great interiors. The location is perfect. Right near a tube station and lots of restaurants and cafes. Keep in mind the single rooms are extremely tiny. No real place to put a roller suitcase. I had to use my desk to hold my bag. Hard to walk...

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent visit to The Ampersand. I am delighted your stay with us was such an enjoyable experience. The single rooms in the hotel are small and we do not recommend them for more than 1 or 2 nights due their size and limited storage. I look forward to welcoming you back...

We got a good deal on this hotel and it's a fantastic location for visiting the V&A. Just steps from South Kensington High Street, it offers warmth and style with a friendly atmosphere. All staff were remarkably cheerful and went out of their way to help. Our room was modern and cosy with every amenity and was immaculately clean, so...

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
