Stayed here on two occasions and enjoyed this hotel. Located just a very short stroll from South Kensington tube station. The hotel is clean and he staff are very friendly. Loved the free minibar. Would gladly stay here again

This was one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed! And best hotel bed I've ever slept. Location very good near the tube. We got a good deal through a dealer 3 nights for the price of 2. Rooms are very pretty and no noise from the streets

I first stayed at the Ampersand in March and enjoyed it so much that I booked it again when I returned to London in August. The hotel itself is a small, charming boutique hotel with great décor. The single and double rooms can be quite small, but they mention that in the room descriptions. The Superior rooms are perfect.

The location is fantastic! Steps from several museums and a 5-10 minute walk to Hyde Park. I have had lunch and dinner at Apero and both were excellent.

I highly recommend The Ampersand. You can't beat the quality, location or price!

Great location, great staff, I can't think of one thing that I would change!
Ampersand made our visit to London delightful and memorable. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to London. A special thank you to the front desk staff, they certainly went above and beyond the call of duty.

Fantastic stay, chic hotel in a fantastic location right across from subway. Knowledgeable and friendly staff at the hotel. Food quality was very good and room service is served within 15 mins which is much quicker than normal hotels

We stayed here five nights at the end of August. The rooms are small, but beautifully decorated and clean. It is just steps from the underground so it feels centrally located, yet on a quiet street. The best amenity the hotel offers is its staff, who are wonderfully accommodating and friendly. The food in the restaurant was delicious, and a drink and dessert in the Drawing Room was the perfect end to out last long day of sightseeing. I highly recommend The Ampersand.

Room Tip: The rooms are small, and not a lot of closet space. Ask for a room on a higher floor, and ask to see...
