My criteria for a hotel are a quiet room and a healthy breakfast. The Ampersand provided both. What amazed me was the warmth of the staff. They were genuinely concerned that my stay be as pleasant as possible. I will definitely return to The Ampersand.

Again I spent a few days in The Ampersand. This location is perfectly placed near the Undergroundstation "South Kensington" from which you can easily reach all points of interest in London. The rooms are small but perfectly equipped and tastefully furnished. The staff is very friendly, attendive and helpful. Dining in "Apero" was perfect!

Nothing really to fault about the Ampersand Hotel. The location, staff & comfortable room/bed, all add up to a really good experience. Like the little things like complimentary fresh milk & juice in room fridge (not the usual mini bar you are afraid to touch).
Have stayed here a few things now & every time the level of service has been really great

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.
