very comfortable
staff, amenities
very comfortable but the rooms were cramped, clothing storage facilities were very insufficient, no instructions as to use of shower and no handholds which can be dangerous to older clients and instructions for authorizing room cleaning up non-existent - but staff were very helpful and welcoming need a second chair and better space for use of desk - also better instructions for use of TV

Lovely Hotel in a Great Location
Location, Staff/Service, Decor
I had a very nice stay at the Ampersand. I was only in London for one night, following a stay at another London hotel the week before, then a visit to Scotland. I almost wish I had stayed at the Ampersand for both London legs of my trip (the only thing that edged it out was the other hotel had a whirlpool bath, which was great after long days of sight-seeing). The hotel is in a fantastic location, right across from the South Kensington tube stop, near some great attractions (The Victoria & Albert is one of my favorite museums), and lots of fabulous shopping ad eating. The decor was truly lovely, the bed was DIVINE, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The complimentary minibar was a nice touch, and the thematic design was brilliantly done. I was a little worried I would run into some London snobbery, as the place looks quite posh, but the staff I encountered were wonderful. I ordered room service, and the food was excellent - I wish I'd had time to try the afternoon tea. I will definitely consider staying at the Ampersand again!

Great South Kensington Hotel Find
Attentive Staff, location, room amenities
We were really happy with our stay. The staff was friendly and responsive. The rooms have unexpected touches, like French press coffee makers and a complimentary mini-bar. The hotel has an intimate feeling, just the right size. The location is great, very close to the South Kensington tube station, many bus routes and with a taxi stand right out front. It was perfect for us.

Charming boutique hotel
This hotel is on a superb location close to transportation, museums, shopping etc. the rooms are a little small - but hey that's London. Showers were great water pressure and the beds comfortable.
Had a fun time - whimsical decor in the lobby, friendly staff and the gym while small was never busy. Downstairs bar and tea looked good.
