Great hotel in fabulous location. Quirky and well styled. Staff very efficient and friendly. Very close to Harrods and lots to do and see in the vicinity. Evening meal was amazing. The drawing room offers an amazing array of delicious cakes. Dogs welcome which was lovely to see.

We stayed three nights at The Ampersand. The location of the hotel is excellent right next to South Kensington underground and lots of shops and cafes nearby. Hotel is very clean but the room we stayed in was very small. We were on the fifth level and didn't get much natural light. We weren't greeted at the door and no... More

This is an excellent hotel in a wonderful neighborhood, South Kensington. Walking distance from the best museums and the Royal Albert Hall, very close to the tube. Great staff, made us feel at home. Excellent service, great breakfast... we loved it and recommend for sure. Will make the Ampersand Hotel our place in London.

Tasteful, comfortable & most convenient location for a hotel. Most rooms are a bit small, but because of the excellent service, my family and I tend to overlook this shortcoming. The breakfast at Apero is excellent.

We had an excellent time at The Ampersand Hotel in London. I emailed them 1 week before arrival to see if early checking was a possibility and received an email within 24 hrs saying they were going to do their best. We arrived at noon and the room was almost ready, they also upgraded us to a suite. The room... More

Wonder hotel in a perfect, quiet neighborhood. Very reasonable price for what you get. The hotel is super clean and the staff is very friendly. Room was a great size- especially for a city like London. Usually rooms are very small. Our kids (age 9 and 14) loved it. The neighborhood has many nice restaurants within a quick walk from... More

5 Star all the way. Excellent service from all staff. Food in the downstairs restaurant was the best we had eaten in London. The location is great for the Tube and the Albert and Victoria Museum. We have been to London twice now and each we have stayed at The Ampersand.

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.
