Hotel and rooms very stylish, updated look, friendly younger hotel staff. European clientele also very stylish. Located in the Kensington/Chelsea neighborhood perfect for limited tourist exposure. Convenient to tube, shopping and Hyde Park, great restaurants and shopping on Kings Road. Would stay here again. Note -rooms are tight.

A wonderful property in a super location. Quality of rooms excellent and the staff could not do enough to help throughout the hotel. We will definitely return and recommend to friends !

Unfortunately we did not get the opportunity to dine at the hotel, but the restaurant looked very good. An excellent choice of restaurants are also around the local area.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Terrific service from booking the room all the way through to the moment we departed. Excellent location near museums, tube and bus stops, nice rooms, attentive staff. Can't wait to come back.

Just returned home from a lovely stay at the Ampersand. Beautifully decorated through out, this is a chic boutique hotel with impeccable attention to detail.

Located just opposite South Kensington tube station, this is a fabulous boutique hotel in a great location. Upon arrival, we were greeted at the door and we found the reception staff to be very welcoming and friendly. We were then chauffeured upstairs by another staff member and taken to our room. We managed to get upgraded to one of the superior rooms which was a lovely surprise and we were delighted with the attention to detail! Complimentary mini-bar, books, choice of magazines, bath robes and slippers and a bathroom equipped with a TV in the bath - oh so luxurious! Our room also appeared to have a botanical theme, which was simply lovely :) We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful hotel based in the heart of South Ken; an area oozing with cosmopolitan appeal.

The hotel also has its own restaurant, and whilst the breakfast did look lovely; we thought it to be a little pricey - however, there are lots of wonderful cafes and bakeries nearby if you'd like a bite to eat.

If we are ever in need of a hotel in London again, the Ampersand will definitely be our first choice and we'd love to come back - Highly recommend!

Efficient and friendly service. Very convenient location. A little bit noisy if facing street.
Ask for room facing back or high floor. Breakfast was good quality and reasonably priced. Excellent set lunch. We will be back .

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and the bed super comfy. We found the bathroom a little too small though very nice. This hotel is in a great location for exploring Kensington. Breakfast was very nice.

Quirky hotel, very comfortable feel to it. Staff were excellent, reception and concierge especially. Just be careful with room choice this is not a typical, every room a square box, hotel. Highly recommended.
