“Great Hotel in a Great Location”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

This will be our new place to stay every time we come to London! You can't beat the location, literally right next door to the South Kensington tube station. The area is phenomenal, beautiful and with plenty of amenities. Steps from Royal Albert Hall, the Science Museum, cafes, restaurants, etc.. The staff cannot be friendlier or more helpful. Our room was extremely comfortable but on the smaller side. Appreciated the complimentary mini bar stocked with waters and sodas and the free wifi. Small things, yes, but becoming increasingly rare these days. What makes this place is the location and that they cannot do enough to make your stay pleasant and comfortable. The Ampersand is a real gem and we will be back!

We recently stayed in this hotel for 12 days. It is very well located. The room was clean. The staff were smart, kind and helpful. The hotel is well decorated and very well managed. We will stay in this hotel again.

Boutique style, london quirky decor, rooms on the small side but not a surprise in London, My room was a bit noisy but I was on the main street side, ask for a room on the other side. Friendly and effective service, a place to go back again.

We stayed here for two nights. From the moment we walked to the front doors we were greeted by very pleasant attentive staff. I loved the decor, I loved the rooms, the bar and the cocktails.
The drawing room is a must , coffee or tea and cake. I can not fault this hotel. We will return, I hope !

Excellent location and extremely helpful and friendly staff. The atmosphere in the hotel was stylish and comfortable and would love to try the afternoon tea at the next visit. The room was spacious and very comfortable, quiet and peaceful. Top rating

Stayed one night. Great service at the front desk. The receptionist was very polite and attentive. Booked us an excellent tapas restaurant at short notice. Great location. Rooms are fine. Cost of the room is predictably high for this part of London so by definition not expensive in relative terms. Would recommend. Cannot comment on food as we did not eat in the hotel.
