Stayed here last weekend and can only say this is a seriously nice hotel very conveniently located close to South Kensington tube station.

Friendly staff, comfortable and stylish room (we had some trouble figuring out the intricacies of the light switches, but that seems to be the case at a lot of hotels these days), quiet enough location (at the back of the hotel at least), nice lobby and clever use of the basement for an intimate restaurant / bar / breakfast location, with reasonable prices esp. for breakfast from a continental European point of view.

Loved the umbrellas!

Will definitely stay on our list for visits to London and is worth a recommendation for both business and leisure purposes.

Beautiful hotel, nice rooms (beware when they say the small rooms are small and good for one person, they mean it). didn't stay long enough to sample anything else at the Hotel but the lounge on the main floor was lovely.

The Ampersand was in the the perfect location for our visit to a graduation at Imperial College and we very pleased with how quiet it was despite the busy surroundings. Our room was quite small but otherwise perfect and we would happily recomment the hotel.

I would highly recommend the Ampersand hotel and am planning to stay there again during another visit to London. The entire hotel experience was exceptional. The hotel is in a great location and has a terrific staff.

I stayed in this hotel for 1 night as a base for a show at the Royal Albert Hall. The rooms are a little on the small side but nevertheless very clean and nicely decorated. I liked the touch of a book in every room. The room wasn't hot and the mini bar was free which I very much enjoyed and made use of. The location of the hotel was fantastic for what I wanted it for with knightsbridge and the west of London on you doorstep. We were able to visit the History and Science Museum spontaneously. Breakfast was very good, very typical of the fashionable breakfast places in the area. I would recommend this hotel for anyone needing to stay in the Kensington area.
