My wife and I spend three nights at The Ampersand Hotel on Honeymoon and it was fantastic. Very well located within about 100 metres of South Kensington tube station which made it very easy for us to get about the hotel has very modern features and is excellently finished which allows it to retain a very definite character. The room has probably the best, most comfortable king sized bed i've slept in! All staff we met were superb and extremely friendly interacting on a genuine and personal, but not intrusive, manner. The surrounding area has numerous eateries, restaurants and cafes and as such we didn't eat there. We saw the afternoon tea being served and it looked extremely good. If we'd had more time and less commitments elsewhere we would certainly have made the effort to eat there.
I noticed a couple of reviews referencing noise from the tube nearby and whilst we noticed it a couple of times it in no way interrupted our sleep etc. (we live in the countryside normally so it is something we would have picked up on).
