We had three nights at The Ampersand while treating ourselves to the Proms. We were driving into London and the staff were exceptionally helpful in advance in providing advice on parking - they will valet park your car (London parking is expensive of course but for us it was an expense we were prepared to pay). The hotel is also well located so we were able to get around by tube and/or walking for most of the things we wanted to do. We had a larger double room which was very nicely appointed though not large (so I figure the standard doubles would be quite small). Small but perfectly designed bathroom. Great shower, bathrobes, fluffy towels, and excellent selection of toiletries and bathroom related goodies. The staff were brilliant and willing to help at all times. Although the hotel is not cheap, it does fall into the 'reasonable' price bracket for what is a very good London hotel.

We recently stayed at The Ampersand Hotel during our holiday vacation in August. The location is ideal. We hopped on the Piccadilly line from Heathrow and within 40 minutes we were at The Ampersand. The hotel is just a 2 minute walk from the South Kensington tube station; perfect location for vacationers like myself. We were immediately greeted by the staff with a warm hello. They checked us in quickly and showed us to our room. The valet gave us a brief overview of all of our amenities and quietly made himself scarce. The Ampersand is listed as a small luxury hotel and it didn't disappoint. The rooms were spacious, clean and modern. The beds were comfortable, bathrooms were large and the minibar was complimentary!

AND that's just the start of it. I can't say enough about the staff. Right from the beginning they were very friendly and helpful. At any given moment, they were eager to assist with our daily needs. We were interested in a hop-on, hop-off tour (we had too!), they immediately gave us recommendations. Turn out, the blue line of the Original Tour stopped right in front of the hotel. We were interested in having tea in the charming little tea room of the hotel, but were apprehensive because we were traveling with a 10 year old with egg and nut allergies, 7 year old with a nut allergy and an energetic 3 year old. However, we wanted the children to have the full experience of an English Tea. The team immediately put us at ease. They assured us it wouldn't be a problem and let the chef know about the allergies. On the day of our tea, they immediately welcomed us and we didn't have to remind them of the allergies. They went out of their way to let us know of the pastries that didn't have eggs or nuts. I also ran into the chef outside of the tea room and she made it a point to ask how everything was. It doesn't get any better than that.

All in all, with the fabulous location, superb customer service, and charming decor... The Ampersand Hotel comes highly recommended by me. I am looking forward to my next London visit and staying at The Ampersand Hotel once again.

I don't usually write reviews but this hotel deserves a huge thanks to the beautiful design, atmosphere, and amazingly friendly staff. The location can't get any better except for the bit of noise that comes from the underground tube. Lovely experience, unique 5 stars experience !

Simply marvelous! From the room to the service to the meals, this was a really special stay. I wish I could pack up more of the Miller Harris amenities to take home as a reminder of this lovely hotel! Additionally, the modern decor and high tech lighting / plugs make this charming older hotel fresh and new!Thank you!

An elegant and luxurious hotel that also exudes warmth and friendliness. Outstanding service. Excellent location. Spotlessly clean. Beautifully decorated. One of the best city hotels I have ever stayed in. I will come back for every stay in London.

I loved this hotel. Having a quiet solo break in London. Arrived early in the morning and was delighted when my room was ready. It was a beautiful double room, loved the dark furniture and solar system wall. Bathroom was gorgeous with a drench shower. Towels and robes in great condition. Toiletries, a loofah and eye make up remover wipes were all great touches.
The location, right next to South Kensington underground, is perfect. I had room service one evening and also ate brunch in Apero. Food was excellent in both cases. Service was relaxed and friendly.
It is a treat to stay here, reflected in the price, but worth every penny.
