The staff are friendly and there is a pre visit email to establish preferences. Room was small and a bit dark but had reasonable facilities , good toiletries including face wipes and is situated in a busy area with excellent derstaurants nearby. Perfect for a lone business man or woman.

I have been here twice for a day meeting. Great location and lovely surroundings. Some great ideas and menu's but the staff while pleasant need a bit more fineness and to put themselves in the customers shoes when they do things.

The location I think is the best in London. Accross the road from Sth Kensington tube (on circle, district and Piccadilly lines so easy to travel anywhere in London). So many good restaurants and cafes a few minutes walk away. Walking distance to shops on kings road and Knightsbridge. Rooms are beautiful but our rooms were the small ones but...

We spent 6 nights at the Ampersand and loved everything about it. It's a hip, low key place. The staff is very warm and welcoming and they were extra nice to our 8 year-old. Our deluxe room was spacious enough for 3 of us. It was so great to have the refrigerator stocked with sparkling/still water, juice and soft drinks...

Brilliant location, lovely design and excellent service. One of the few hotels I would recommend without reserve. Couldn't be more convenient for the museums, tube and restaurants. Well-appointed rooms with great showers, underfloor heating in the bathroom.

Great place to stay. Would highly recommend it. Friendly people and great location. The heated bathroom floors was an added treat. I would not hesitate to come back to the Ampersand on a future trip. See you next time!

We stayed in this hotel for three nights in October. It was exactly what I prefer in a London hotel - quaint, charming, and clean. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the shower was great (plus speakers in the bathroom for playing music), and the bed was comfortable. It's also located within a stone's throw to the South Kensington subway station,...

This was the second time I have stayed at the Ampersand and both times have been excellent. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the quality of room is excellent. The only food I had whilst at the hotel was breakfast but this was also very good...a few steps up from your usual hotel breakfast buffet. Choice was good...

First time guest at The Ampersand and I will definitely be back. The size, the service, the location, the rooms, the facilities are great. Will be back. If there were any small improvements, the wifi was not great speed in the room even on the room bubble; shower water pressure could be increased.

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.
