“Birthday Treat!”
Reviewed 14 December 2013

We stayed at the Ampersand for my husband's London trip birthday treat last week. The hotel was just wonderful with delightful, helpful staff who made our stay so special and the most fabulous bedroom!!!
We would recommend the hotel to any couples on a short break.
Thanks again Ampersand!

Tiny room but completely forgiven for having a very comfy bed and great shower. Only had breakfast, but it was nice to have my order taken and freshly made food rather than the standard buffet. Very friendly staff - will be looking to book again next time I am in big town.

The level of the attendant at breakfast room and at the bar must be improved.
A concierge service will be also better organized. The continental breakfast could also more rich even the quality is very good.

Booked the hotel for a 4 day long weekend based on a recommendation from a friend who had just returned. Location was extremely convenient, staff friendly, room and bed very comfortable. The restaurant worked out great for dinner and breakfast.... I read in some reviews about hearing the underground which to an extent is true. Its just a low rumble which is barely noticable. I am a very light sleeper and really didn't hear it and it certainly didn't disturb my sleep. Same could be said about the traffic as we had a street side room. Never heard it either. Would definately stay again.

Nice boutique hotel. great tea room and place for meeting. avoid room 7, it is too close to tube and too loud. place looks really nice. guest rooms are spacious. beds were comfortable and liked the in-room complimentary beverages (water, soda, coffee)

The hotel was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The room was spacious and also beautiful and clean. The staff was AMAZING. So friendly and helpful, and they treated us so kindly as we both celebrated our birthdays there. They added so many special touches that we will never forget. Thank you Ampersand Hotel!
