“Gorgeous hotel!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

Reception was wonderful, very friendly! The hotel is absolutely stunning, modern and classy at the same time. Very unique! The Drawing Room is gorgeous!! (shame they don't serve the hotel breakfast there, but you can have lovely afternoon tea!)
The location is perfect - right next to South Kensington tube station - with lots of very cute restaurants nearby! Harrod's is a 15min walk.
Everything is modern and working well (incl. shower/bath!)
Would stay there again anytime!

Room Tip: We were upgraded to a larger room/suite (403), which was lovely (bedroom, living room, kitchenette...

Hiiii !!

We go to Ampersand hotel around 20-25th of january 2013 with my friend. We saw that hotel already inside and we liked it very much. So we decided to go back not just have a look but to spend one night in one of the beautiful room :) We plan a big shopping and big party over there, and Ampersand hotel is in the center of London so everything seems perfect for us !

We are looking forward it !!!

Best regards

We booked this hotel to treat ourselves for a night before Christmas and it was the perfect choice. Just a minute's walk from South Kensington tube station, the location is unbeatable! If you were coming to London for the museums, you couldn't ask for a better spot. The lobby is warm and welcoming and the staff are very friendly and chatty. It's classy without being stuffy. The best part, however, is the room and the amazing shower in the bathroom - it is huge! With lots of great settings. There are even speakers for the radio in the bathroom so you can listen to tunes while you shower. The bed - huge and very comfortable. Would definitely stay again and would recommend to anyone coming to London who wants luxury at a great price.

We stayed at this hotel on two separate occasions over Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The interior design is fabulous and the bedrooms very comfortable. The location of the hotel couldn't be better. A few minutes walk to some of the best museums and galleries in London, some good restaurants and the tube station from where we went directly to Kings Cross/St Pancras at the end of our stay. The hotel itself has a great atmosphere and this starts with the enthusiasm and warmth of the reception staff. I must add that breakfast was great value, either continental with many choices or a cooked breakfast which we had on most occasions. This hotel is a delightful place to stay, be it business or pleasure.

I stayed at the Ampersand for a 2 day business trip and it was terrific. The staff was excellent, and did everything possible to make my stay productive. The hotel is brand new, very interesting interior design and super comfortable beds and rooms. The food was excellent and the dining room staff friendly and attentive. No complaints and much to appreciate!

I was travelling with my 13 years old daughter to visit London. It was a pleasure to stay at The Ampersand. The quality of all services is really good, the young highly motivated staff is always on your disposal - as much as you like, very helpful and discreet. You feel, they are loving their jobs, each of them acts as a perfect host. We never saw a manager - maybe one of the friendly guys was the manager? - It is not important, you don't miss it - you feel to be in good hands in each moment. The surroundings of the hotel are also very good. Clean, safe and inviting for a walk - and of course the perfect position to visit the City of London.

I found a great deal via Secret Escapes and thought I'd surprise my boyfriend with a different Christmas present. We stayed at Ampersan's on Christmas Eve and were blown away! The hotel exceeded our expectations. Being yet another Small Luxury Hotel of the World, it does not fail to impress with little details. Loved the interior of the room and the breakfast was out of this world. Even the Birchermiesli tasted like back home (Switzerland). Thanks Ampersand!!

I'm planning to book an afternoon tea at this place very soon!! Cannot wait!
