The Ampersand Hotel

Reviewed 20 August 2014

Our first trip to London and had a great trip. We arrived on Aug 10 and there was a bike race that closed the streets near the hotel. Our car service could only get a few blocks away so a staff member met us at the car and walked us to the hotel. It was also raining and he brought along umbrellas for us. He also pointed out some restaurants along the way that we tried and were very satisfied. The rooms were clean, updated and had plenty of space. It is very close to the Underground so there is a slight rumble of the trains but never bothered us. Very good location.

We just returned from a week-long stay at The Ampersand--truly an extraordinarily gracious hotel! The location was excellent, the room lovely, comfortable, and immaculate--and the small touches luxurious. The mini refrigerator was stocked with cold drinks and cookies always awaited us each day. Yet these all paled in comparison to the cordial and knowledgeable staff--without exception, each fulfilled our every request with good cheer. We would be delighted to return to this stress-free and delightful gem.

Room Tip: 4th floor suite was wonderful--2 separate rooms (pull out sofa, separate tv's) with balcony over...

I stayed at the Ampersand for a couple of nights in July and I was very impressed by the hotel. There is a general feeling of class about the place and it's obvious a great amount of care is taken to make the right impression. The location is spot on in terms of what is in the near vicinity, such as South Kensington tube station, museums and dining options. The walk into central London is also very pleasant and manageable.

Check-in at the hotel was speedy and welcoming. I did have a small double room booked but I was pleasantly surprised to walk in and see it was the next room type up. It was spacious enough and had a very boutique feeling, which is the hotels I tend to go for. Everything was spotless and not in the slightest worn looking. It's always a nice touch when the mini-bar is complimentary too. I would definitely stay here again.

our deluxe room was beautiful and the bed was good. We could hear the trains in the tube but it didn't bother me. I found being this close to an underground station so darn convenient. The surrounding area is amazing. My only complaint was some very loud people moved into the unit upstairs and made a ton of noise. it was like having elephants overhead. The hotel offered to move us but we didn't want to have to repack everything so we went and got earplugs. I wish they had left 2 coffee packages since there were 2 of us and we fought over who got to have it each morning.

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.
