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.

We stayed for my partner’s 30th birthday and we had a great time. The Ampersand went above and beyond, firstly by upgrading our room prior to our arrival and then discovering complementary treats upon entering our room. The room service was top notch and I was both surprised and pleased to discover Sky Sports on the television! Really good time, thank you.

Lovely hotel in a great location in central London . Possibly the best bed I have ever slept in . Reception staff were great. The only down side was the service in the restaurant and the breakfast which was poor.

The hotel was immaculately clean. The staff, professional, friendly and welcoming. Though considered one of the smaller 5 star hotels in London, we found the rooms spacious and cozy. Our dining experiences were exceptional (do make sure to check out the Apero). The cocktails offered on site were delicious and a highlight of our stay.

The Ampersand Hotel is a lovely centrally located hotel for a trip to London. The rooms are big - for London, but what makes this hotel special is the level of service. Everyone is friendly and efficient. The Science High Tea is a lovely experience especially if you have kids. Lucas and the team will make everything special. The exuberance Lucas shows and the rapport he has with the children makes their eyes light up both for the food as well as the science. Keep up the great work.
