I would highly recommend the Ampersand hotel and am planning to stay there again during another visit to London. The entire hotel experience was exceptional. The hotel is in a great location and has a terrific staff.

I stayed in this hotel for 1 night as a base for a show at the Royal Albert Hall. The rooms are a little on the small side but nevertheless very clean and nicely decorated. I liked the touch of a book in every room. The room wasn't hot and the mini bar was free which I very much enjoyed and made use of. The location of the hotel was fantastic for what I wanted it for with knightsbridge and the west of London on you doorstep. We were able to visit the History and Science Museum spontaneously. Breakfast was very good, very typical of the fashionable breakfast places in the area. I would recommend this hotel for anyone needing to stay in the Kensington area.

I travelled with a friend to London for a girly weekend, we had a lovely stay at the ampersand, beautiful interiors and exterior to this hotel. Lovely room, very comfy beds, nice bathroom, staff all excellent. We enjoyed pink champagne and yummy cakes in the drawing room upon arrival which was a great start to our break. Note this was at an extra cost... Just incase your thinking we got a bargain :-)
Standard as you would expect for high end hotel in South Kensington.

We booked this hotel through SLH (small luxury hotels of the world) and were upgraded to a deluxe room. The room was lovely, quite spacious with an extremely comfy bed, small sofa, large tv and a fabulous bathroom. The hotel is in an excellent location just yards from South Kensington tube station, lots of cafes and restaurants and a short walk to museums and Harrods.

We arrived early and left our bags at the hotel and received a call later in the day to let us know our room was ready. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful - nothing seemed to be too much trouble. We didn't have any food during our stay here as we had bookings elsewhere, but I would highly recommend this hotel for the quality of rooms and location.

We stayed in room with sofa and desk. Terrific service on all levels .A great boutique hotel in heart of South Kensington. Great location for museums and Hyde Park a short 15 minute walk Our third visit to Ampersand. Couples should inquire and book the larger rooms as the singles are rather small.

They say it is the little things that make a difference. This hotel specializes in the little things. Start with the staff, they are incredible. Helpful, cheerful and they seem genuinely glad you are staying at their hotel. Then let's talk about the beds. My wife never sleeps thru the night...but here she slept like a rock every night. I loved the bed myself...incredible to feel that comfortable after a long day. Great location in a great section of london with lots of transportation choices (tube, bus, cabs within a few feet. Nice bar and restaurant, good free wifi, complimentary water, juice and pop in the room. French press coffee maker and a kettle. Morning paper...I could go on and on. I love this hotel.
