We had a great stay at the Ampsersand in early May. The staff is friendly - the "porter" who helped was great and very knowledgeable, even though it was only his first week (Collin I believe?)! We were in room 405 (deluxe double), which is close to the elevators, but not noisy at all. We loved the free water, juice,...

We had a deluxe room for 3 nights. We booked 3 nights for the price of 2, but the rate (without breakfast) still came out to just about $300 USD and that's expensive to us. The room was, large, clean, and quiet with large floor to ceiling windows overlooking a balcony to the street. The inner set of windows were...

Our stay at the Ampersand was great! It's location right at the Kensington station was ideal for traveling to all the different places we wanted to see. The staff was friendly and helpful and always a warm greeting when we left and came back. The addition of a cell phone in the room was such a pleasant surprise and we...

For our overnight stay in London to visit Chelsea Flower Show, we couldn't have chosen a nicer hotel. A warm friendly greeting on arrival, a spotlessly clean bedroom/bathroom & a delicious breakfast fuelled us up for our day at the show.

We needed a place at the last minute in London and wanted a 5 star hotel at a low rate...hard to find. They advertised a "small" room on the internet. They did not lie. It was SMALL, not much bigger than the bed. But, the staff was wonderful! Our first night they were completely full, but the second night they...

We stayed here with our family in interconnecting rooms and it was incredible. Loved the decor, the building has been respectfully and tastefully restored. The location is ideal - close access to the museums, Kensington and all amenities. Our girls loved the views over the rooftops 'Mary Poppins style' and the afternoon tea is a must. A huge thank you...

Very clean, great location and you can't hear your neighbors! Downside is the tiny rooms. I was out most of the time sight seeing (there is a lot that is within walking distance.) Victoria and Albert museum, free, Harrods, free but... and the tube station is practically in front of the hotel. Very convenient. I will be back.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With some of the most stylish hotel rooms in Kensington, The Ampersand is a privately-owned luxury London hotel that combines contemporary excellence in design, service, food and technology in an 1888 building at the capital's heart. 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
