Description
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 More 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.

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

I spent 6 nights in a Deluxe Studio. This hotel was a great choice, the accommodations are very nice and the location is a great jumping off point to see London. The South Kensington Underground stop is across the street. The hotel had nice touches like free drinks in the mini fr

Hi, I have three questions. Is there a fee for the airport transportation? Do you guys have a converter/adapter for USA Flat Irons? Do you have refrigerators in the rooms? Thank you.
If you're flying into Heathrow, the easier, fastest, and cheapest way to get to and from the airport in the tube. The hotel is literally 1 block from the S Kensington stop on the Picadilly line. Super easy and cheap- The hotel does provide adapters. Don't know about rooms with fridges. I'm thinking, no. But you should ask.

Your Suites are equipped with either shower and bath or a combination of both, which means shower in the bath. Why is your hotel not able to confirm a suite with shower and separate bath? I have written an email and have been advised that a Suite with separate shower and bath cannot be confirmed and will only be allocated at the time of check-in. For my purposes I need confirmation of such a bathroom. How do I go about this?
Thank you for your question. I am pleased to confirm we will allocate a suite with your preferences of walk in shower and separate bath upon reservation and do our very best to fulfil your request. I hope this is of assistance and I look forward to finalising your reservation. Kind regards, Tracey

"Ask for a quiet room and they provide, west and upper floors best."
"Fifth floor suite had three TVs and a small kitchenette. It would be roomier though, without so many chairs; the room had seating for nine."
"Avoid the smallest rooms - I don’t think they’re worth it."
"I would guess the higher floors would be quieter."
"Be specific with what you need."
