“The London Jewel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

The Amperstand turned out to be our very own London jewel. The hotel, staff and restaurant were great. The hotel's location near the Underground made getting to and from Heathrow a breeze as well as getting all over London. I highly recommend it.

I stayed at Ampersand with mydaughter in late Feb.It was a belated birthday gift to me and as soon as we arrived we were offered a complimentary glass of champagne.Our room was beautifully appointed ---comfy beds , clean superb large bathroom with bath and shower.It was in a quiet position --indeed it was hard to believe we were in central London.The staff were all extremely friendly and efficient always taking time to greet us as we came and went.
Arriving late on Friday afternoon we were able to take advantage of the late opening at the museum which is only a short walk away.
Choice of breakfast suited us well---it is good to be able to choose and pay for what you fancy rather than an all in charge for items you may not want.
The proximity to tube station made sightseeing really easy.
After busy days it was lovely to return to the calm oasis of the Ampersand with beautiful flowers and a personal atmosphere.
Having not visited London for nearly thirty years I am hoping to be able to return to the Ampersand very soon to do some more exploring and enjoy the treat which awaits at the Ampersand

n the well known district of South Ken, this is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a classic British style hotel with a fresh touch of design.
The hotel is located 2 min walking from the tube station, very handy if you are reaching the city centre from Heathrow airport with the Piccadilly line.
The rooms are very clean, stylish and design for fitting all what you need during your stay, whether it is for pleasure or business. The bathroom are very chic with many more amenities than standards and displayed in a very posh way.

The staff are very friendly and helpful at all times. Highly recommended

We stayed overnight at the Ampersand for our Wedding Anniversary. Our Room had been upgraded without any request from us and the greeting at Reception was prompt, efficient and Friendly.

Too many Hotels in London think they are doing you a favour letting you stay at their overpriced abode. The Ampersand is a a reasonable price in comparison to most London Hotels and in my view gives value for money.
Our Room was really nice (215), the location is good for the Tube and the staff are great.
Good experience all round for us.

This hotel visit was a gift from family and we were not let down. The roomsmaw was small but perfectly formed. Excellent bathroom facilities, with a great shower and accessories.Another excellent 'extra' was the in room mini bar facility with complimentary soft drinks. Excellent position for the underground system with speedy access to central London and direct access to Heathrow.

Loved this hotel. Clean, fresh and modern in design.
Rooms were of a very generous size. Good value for money for the price.
Staff were excellent. Very friendly and helpful.
Loved the lounge area on the ground floor. Perfect for hosting a business meeting.
Location was also excellent. South Kensington (or now considered 'Little France') right next to the tube. Lots of great French cafes/restaurants next to the hotel.
The only slightly bad experience was eating lunch at Apero. Took ages for lunch to arrive. Mine came first (lukewarm) and my friends salad took another 10mins to arrive. Something went wrong at the kitchen - but wasn't acknowledged. Hasn't put me off trying again at the restaurant because the rest of the hotel experience was excellent.

Room Tip: The rooms on the Harrington Road side are noisy as the windows are not double glazed. Message to own...
