Stayed here for one night only. The hotel was easy to get to very close to Souyh Kensington tube station close to Kensinghton High St which is a nice shopping Street,the musuems including the Natural History musuem Victoria and Albert Musuem, Kensington Gardens and The Royal Albert Hall. The hotel is very modern recently refurbished in a boutique style nice decor and furnishing.,The bed was extremely comfy and complimentary soft drinks from the mini bar was a nice touch. Breakfast was ok nothing special and the service was slow. However staff at check in very effecient and friendly. Would stay again

Stayed in this hotel before a trip out on the Orient Express.

The major plus points are that it is a nice quirky hotel a stones throw from South Kensington tube.

The hotel is furnished to a high standard and the continental buffet breakfast which we had included was more than adequate.

The major negatives are that the rooms are tiny even by London standards! We had a superior room (not the cheapest smallest rooms either) and it was so small that if the chair was tucked under the dressing table you could not walk behind it as the chair touched the bed. I would say that the room was smaller than my own bedroom. Obviously can't comment on other rooms in the hotel.

Also there is no mirror in the bedroom (room 310) so as a lady there was no where you could put on your makeup in natural daylight. Also it meant there was no where to blow dry your hair or use hair straighteners and actually see what you are doing, obviously should have packed an extension lead that would have reached to the bathroom!!

If the rooms were a little bit larger and there was a mirror in the bedroom I would have scorred this hotel 5 out of 5

We stayed here on 3 November as we were in London and saw a review in "The Times" which gave details of a opening offer.

The Hotel is very well located for the V&A which we had tickets to go to and the staff very friendly. They were unable to fit us in for afternoon tea (our fault as we had not booked and turned up at 4.30 to see if we could get in) but they accomodated us in the restaurant and this turned out to be better from our point of view as the head chef and pastry chef came out to apologise and spent time chatting to us about the food and hotel . On the Chefs recomendation we had the full english breakfast and we would say it is a must (and great value for Central London)

The rooms was excellent and we were even give a up grade

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).

Room Tip: We had a room which was larger than the standard. On seeing one of the standard rooms as we passed it looked fantastic but was considerably smaller. We were to the front of the hotel on the second floor but were not bothered by noise in any way.

Even though it's right by the tube station it was not that noisy but the studio room we had was brillant and because we had to wait for our room we were given a free glass of champagne each in the bar. Check in and out was quick and friendly and room service was fab. I would stay here again but the restuarant was too cold for me

Room Tip: Look out for special deals for this hotel as it could be expensive
