Perfect stay for the night - beautiful, well-thought-out design with attention to detail in the bathroom and the bed was ridiculously comfortable and spacious. Very quiet and tucked away from the hustle and bustle of London! The breakfast was really great - my eyes were much bigger than my stomach and wanted to eat everything!! Good, slick service. Overall would...

Unfortunately, I was sick during my stay in London (in the room for 5 days) and the hotel staff were very accommodating and attentive. The hotel is lovely and a great location, and the afternoon tea was a delight!

Rooms and baths were gracious and luxury quality. Breakfast was friendly and excellent. Tea room was exquisite. Walked to restaurants, museums and parks. Bus was outside the door and tube station just a block away.

Excellent location. Beautiful hotel. The room could have been a bit too warm at times but everything else was excellent. Very convenient location with very good access to busses, tube, taxis and restaurants.

Beautiful hotel with traditional high quality of service and full of integrity. An honest product that shall not let one down. The comelette hotel paradigm has been intricately planned and executed, whilst being managed by a very competent General Manager with vast 5 Star experience and effective leadership qualities. The team are all fantastic, this will be my new place...

The Ampersand is a lovely property - full of charm without being stuffy. Location can't be beat; and exceedingly clean. Front desk crew lovely but not expert in advice on getting around town. One small glitch during our 6 night stay - room was not cleaned upon our 4:00pm return, but hotel addressed promptly. Booking was a bit complicated -...

A true studio hotel, with attention to detail and high standards. Close to London tube and from here easy access to the whole of London. Very good staff that understands your needs and seems to enjoy to work there. Good breakfast also.

I booked the Ampersand at the tail end of a five city European trip. It takes a lot to wow a weary traveller who has been city / hotel hopping for over two weeks, but WOW, I loved this establishment! From the hipster vibe (where you actually feel a part of the movement, not some old fogey being left in...

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.
