The reviews are spot on. Lovely little boutique hotel! Pros: very clean and attractive decor, very attentive staff, lovely tea room, excellent restaurant (the porridge at breakfast was superb), only 100 yards to the tube station. Cons: unless you want to go to the museums nearby, the location is good but not great; while the bed was great, I didn't care for the pillows; the shower is very large by London standards but the temperature controls were confusing; not a lot of really good restaurants within walking distance but we did find a good Thai place nearby. We also stayed at the St. Ermin's and found these two hotels very comparable. Would definitely stay again.

- With some of the most stylish hotel rooms in Kensington, The Ampersand is a privately-owned luxury London hotel that combines contemporary excellence in design, service, food and technology in an 1888 building at the capital's heart. We have been inspired by those great Victorian values of discovery and wonder - and given them a modern, whimsical twist. The result: a cosmopolitan, 111-room luxury boutique hotel, bar, restaurant and drawing rooms, delivering 21st-century warmth, humour and total comfort.The Ampersand Hotel is situated just a minute's walk from South Kensington tube station, and is well connected to Heathrow airport. ... more less
