if you looking for a hotel Kensington look no further. The staff is attentive and accomodating. The decor was modern and new. Great Miller Harris bath products. I have stayed at a few Firmdale london hotels ( Number Sixteen, Knightsbridge hotel), Hotel indigo (both locations) and Hotel 41 and The Ampersand is what they all aspire to be. Great location near Royal Albert Hall and The Natural History Museum. 2 minutes from the tube station and plenty of bus service available.

The rooms are amazing, of course this is London and rooms are not huge but this was perfect size for 2 people. Great minibar, free of charge stocked with water, soda and juices. great little gym with the essentials and great room service menu. The best part was the room was wired for tech, a plug into the desk for USB, US converter, MIDI and audio output. Plus a dock for your iPhone or IPod . I will continue to stay here on my next visit.

My husband and two teenage children stayed at The Ampersand for 5 nights over the New Year period. We were upgraded to a one bedroom suite for ourselves with an adjoining room for the children. Everything about this hotel is fantastic - the decor, the location, the beds, the pillows and the breakfast. Best of all were the wonderful staff who were on duty over our 5 day stay, they were all really friendly and helpful and a credit to this wonderful hotel. Since returning home I have recommended The Ampersand to everyone!!!!

Stayed in room 409 for three nights from the 25th. I noticed a review below from someone staying in the room next door at the same time, who complained about the rumbling of underground trains. We didn't notice this at all ,though at some times during the night and early morning there were strange sounds which apparently were due to pipes expanding. Not too big a deal but we did call to ask about it as it bothered my husband a bit, we were offered a change of room but didn't bother to take up the offer and on check out our last breakfast was knocked off our bill for this inconvenience. We loved the hotel, very helpful staff and very good breakfast. We were upgraded from a superior to a deluxe room on arrival which was a lovely gesture. Rooms and ambience of the hotel are superb, looking forward to going back very soon.

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed at this hotel. The rooms although slightly on the small side (We have stayed in the standard and the superior) are very comfy. I have the best nights sleep when we stay. The bathrooms are nice and modern, love the shower. The Ampersand is only 30 seconds from the underground and about a 5 minute walk to the Royal Albert Hall with plenty of nice restaurants and bars in the area. Well worth a stay.

Had two nights at this gorgeous hotel. Had a luxury feel at a very reasonable price. The rooms are fabulous with a little touches of luxury. All of the staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. This lovely boutique hotel is in a fab spot in South Kensington which has a great vibe, across from South Kensington underground station. Would highly recommend this hotel and can't wait to visit again soon!
