Love the hotel although some of the rooms are really small.the location is great because in a quiet neighborhood with good restaurants close by. There is a cab stand right when you walk out the door so you never have to wait.

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...

We have just spent 6 nights at the Ampersand. Everything is great and beyond the expectations. Very convenient location just across the street from the South Kensington tube station. Room is very clean, stylish and comfortable. We will definitely come back and recommend this hotel to our family and friends.

We always love coming back to the Ampersand - perfect location, service and ambience. Stylish - traditional with a great modern twist - and extremely comfortable. No guest could ask for more and we would not consider staying anywhere else in South Kensington!

The Ampersand Hotel is my favorite hotel in London. I stayed there several times and never experienced any problem, whether in reservation, check-in, services or at the check-out. All I can say I like staying in this hotel very much.

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.
