Very well located near South Kensington underground station. The room is rather small as is the washroom with shower. The bed is very large and comfortable. Perfect for a city trip with one small luggage. Not for longer stays or business. The ladies at the reception desk are very friendly but could be more service minded.

We stayed at the Ampersand for three nights in September 2016. I pre-paid and got the 3 nights for 2 rate so it was "relatively" affordable. London is expensive! We had a gorgeous Deluxe room overlooking the street. The room was gorgeous. Big, big bed, comfy pillows, and soft linens. Long, low bench in front of the bed to sit...

Love love love this hotel. Location cannot be beat. Room was impeccable and spacious for me and my husband and ten days of clothing (if staying for more than a night or two, I recommend getting the larger room). Cannot beat the amenities - free minibar stocked daily, coffee/tea and biscuits in room, high end toiletries, clean workout room, and...

My mother and I stayed here for 4 nights while we were visiting London. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous! Staff was very friendly, morning breakfast was affordable and delicious. Super convenient location from the tube because it's right next to the South Kensington station. We took the tube everywhere! Great location and good price! Would definitely come back and stay...

Attending concert at Royal Albert Hall, and booked this place because it was nearby. We travel to London frequently and always stay in 4* hotels. I must say that this place is one of the best we've stayed at. The hotel is spotless, the rooms are really nice, and the staff are very friendly!!!! Worth every penny!!!!

Love this hotel...booking it again was a no brainer. In addition to the property being so lovely, I appreciate being close to the tube. The neighborhood is vibrant without being too crowded. On this trip I decided to take a small single room. It's definitely on the small side (which they are up front about) but I liked the option...

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.

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. ... more   less
