“Amersand is lovely”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

Great location, very friendly staff. Rooms are small but cool. it didn't matter because we spent little time there. Front desk gave great recommendations on markets and restaurants. Great artwork and decoration in lobby and stairwell. Afternoon tea was wonderful. Some street noise, but that's a tradeoff for the great location.

Lovely atmosphere in hotel. Staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful, giving great recommendation of a local bar!
Great position, a 2 minute walk from South Kensington Tube.
Will definitely return!

In some ways I am not sure that I really want to review this hotel. It is such a perfect find that I would like to keep it to myself. it ticks just about all the boxes. Firstly location, just a couple of minutes walk to South Kensington tube station, restaurants and museums on the doorstep, a pleasant stroll to Knightsbridge. The rooms, uber cool, yet traditional, a very clever combination of style and quality, not lacking in any amenity. Dining, informal breakfast, bistro evening, all handed to you with quiet confidence. Ordering theatre tickets, receiving your post, finding you a glass of wine - nothing was too much trouble and if you want to be treated as though you are a treasured guest in your own home well this place is for you. Yes I loved it.

Elegant and cosy atmosphere. Attentive staff. Beautiful rooms
The kind of place that you do not want to leave. I will definitely go back to the Ampersand Hotel during my next visit to London.
