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.

Trendy hotel with a wonderful location

location, ambience, color
It was indeed a very pleasant stay as the staff were really friendly and helpful, the location is great with most of everything I need around it. The 24-hour room service is perfect for someone like me who stay out late and need something to munch on when I get back the hotel late. Love to be there again!

New Years Eve

The hotel is beautiful, with a games room, library and food available 24 hours a day. Staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. Room had lovely toiletries and complimentary soft drinks in minibar.
We stayed on New Years Eve. The staff were friendly and very good with children. They helped with directions to where we needed to go and even provided us with a map. The room was beautiful, clean and decorated to a high standard. The bed was very comfortable. I haven't slept so well in years! The room was well equipped with complimentary soft drinks in the minibar; not just tea and coffee like most hotels. Lovely toiletries were provided and i had a gorgeous shower. My daughter made good use of the smart tv; playing youtube videos, accessing Facebook and playing music from the hotel playlists. We enjoyed playing table tennis and board games in the games room. And with food being available 24 hours a day we were able to sit in the drawing room and have something to eat and a glass of wine quite late in the evening. Breakfast, in the restaurant on the lower ground floor, was divine. All the regular foods you'd expect on the menu plus many more. My daughter had homemade waffles with Nutella, maple syrup and banana's, while I had coconut porridge with caramelised banana's. Delicious! The service was friendly and we didn't wait long for our food. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. It is only a short walk away from the Natural History and Science museums and the Diana memorial in Hyde park. We will definitely be back. Couldn't fault any part of our stay. Thank you.
