I found cool furnishings and a clean ambient. The employres were smart, very kind and warm. I want to come back there. Just to consider that the breakfast menu was good, but in other hotels it is huge.

Took my 7 yr old to the Ampersand for the science afternoon tea. From the minute we arrived staff were very attentive & friendly offering us a choice of tables to sit at. The interior is beautifully decorated, very clean and has a calm relaxed ambience. The savoury food offerings were excellent: crab bonbon, chicken in Parmesan basket, crayfish on... More

We stayed in this hotel with 17 family members, and the cost was very reasonable for the multiple rooms in a well situated and located hotel. The staff was very accommodating, helpful, and did whatever we needed. The rooms are of adequate size, and very comfortable. The beds were comfortable and clean. Housekeeping made certain that the rooms were cleaned... More

I can highly recommend The Ampersand Hotel. The staff were very friendly and housekeeping did a great job. I have booked the Superior Room and slept like a baby. It was overall a great experience. The location is brilliant and very close to South Kensington tube station. To have complimentary soft drinks in the mini bar was such a nice... More

The location is excellent - right next to south Kensington tube station. We stayed twice in 10 days for two nights each, as a family of four. The staff were all extremely personable and friendly, and the hotel extremely comfortable. Recommend it.

Fantastic stay. Great for business and holiday travel alike. It is very central to Covent Garden and easy to travel to Central London on the tube as the station is 2 minutes walk from the hotel. We stayed a couple of nights and had a great time. Breakfast is good in the hotel and there are a number of places... More

The only negative with the Ampersand is room size. They are not silly little cramped rooms but they are on the small side for the money paid. The rooms are well appointed, the public areas are great and above all the staff are friendly and helpful almost to a fault. Great position opposite South Kensington station and near all the...

Having previously used the Ampersand we were not surprised at the high level of service but our experience was enhanced by an exceptional room and exceptional service in the Drawing Room. We will be back whenever we need to stay in South Ken.

We spent a week in London and stayed the entire time at the Ampersand. The location of the hotel could not have been better. It was up the street from the tube, near restaurants and museums, and a reasonable walk to Harrods. The hotel staff was helpful and made some excellent recommendations for nearby restaurants. The hotel offers an excellent... 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
