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.

Ampersand made our weekend stay extra special for my mum’s 70 th birthday . Will stay again . Lovely attentive staff & brilliant location . The extra little touches made it memorable. One of the great things about the hotel is that whilst it’s very central it’s very quiet at night . Thank you so much !

We stayed 1 night in a Standard Room. On the small side, but good value. Perfect location for the museums and Royal Albert Hall , all within walking distance. Service and cleanliness superb. Breakfast was a la carte; a good idea. We chose the yogurt , honey and strawberries - generous portion and quality ingredients. Being able to leave luggage at reception very welcome as the V & A have no cloakroom facilities at present. So if you are looking for somewhere to lay your head after a gig at the Royal Albert Hall and spend the next day checking out the museums the Ampersand is certainly comfy, relaxing and good value for money.
