“An excellent hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

We stayed for 2 nights in Jan and were upgraded to a higher quality room because of my husband's birthday. The room itself, the food and the staff made staying at The Ampersand a wonderful experience.

Location was super just a stone throw away from the South Kensington Subway and moving around London become so easy. Taking a train back to Heathrow was easy too and if you pay about 55 Pound by London cab you will be in airport within less than 40 min.

Stay only 1 night was really a pity however, we manage to took 2 hi-tea in the hotel. The Hi-Tea lounge is highly popular among the local thus is better to book in advance and the spread is really good. Great Ambience and with lots of modern painting.

From the front desk to the room, we are so surreal by the hotel decoration and service render.
Staff always eager to help and make our stay so comfy. They even ensure we had 3 sets of all amenities when they learn we are a group of trio travelling.

I definitely will recommend my friends who's travelling to London to stay this property.

It is a beautiful hotel with excellent facilities. The bed is one of the most comfortable I've slept in whilst travelling. Professional courteous staff. Deluxe room is spacious with wonderful walk in shower. It is important to note there is noise from the subway as it is close as well as from bus stop outside. We would stay again however we would ask for a quieter room!

Room Tip: Higher floor not facing street

Fab hotel in a beautiful and easy location with very helpful staff and a bed I could have slept in forever. Try the cream tea's - amazing. The whole hotel is very modern and chic and it's now our base every time we visit London due to the location and accessability.

Stayed many times in London , for concerts , theaters etc and have to say , this hotel was a revelation.
Close to South Kensington tube, Museums, Hyde Park , Albert Hall all very close. Harrods just up the road
Fro the moment we walked in , the staff were all smiles, friendly and very helpful. The rooms are very nice and beds very comfortable. We had both dinner and breakfast in the Apero restaurant and again, food excellent and staff very friendly. Nice little well equipped gym.
Overall fantastic experience, not cheap, but Kensington after all. Well done , gives me faith in London hotels again

Room Tip: We were upgraded from Superior to Delux, very quiet at back of hotel.

What a great hotel. Fab location, wonderful décor and a top team. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were very friendly. Plus, great shopping, museums and theatre on your doorstep - what a winner!
