We got a good deal on this hotel and it's a fantastic location for visiting the V&A. Just steps from South Kensington High Street, it offers warmth and style with a friendly atmosphere. All staff were remarkably cheerful and went out of their way to help. Our room was modern and cosy with every amenity and was immaculately clean, so...

I booked a one night stay here as I was attending a fair in Chelsea. It's a good base for the Kensington & Chelsea area with the V&A museum just around the corner. Whilst an old building, the interior is contemporary with some interesting features such as quirky pictures and music and astronomical themes on the walls. Our deluxe room...

Loved our stay at this modern, European boutique hotel. Beautiful spaces, super comfortable! What they don't tell you is the location is Amazing! Lots of shops and small restaurants just outside the doors, And the Underground is right there. Very accommodating staff. Directions, recommendations, reservations, private car... I am fussy, and Ampersand hit all the right marks.

This is a beautiful hotel, which very helpful and friendly staff. The location is excellent as it is close to the tube station and has great places to eat and see nearby. We booked a family room but were disappointed with the available space after the extra bed was added.

Brilliant staff and a stunning hotel in a central location. Close to the tube and museums as well as some good eating places close by. Room might seem small but for a weekend stay its perfect and cozy.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.

We have been inspired by those great Victorian values of discovery and wonder - and given them a modern, whimsical twist. The result: a cosmopolitan, 111-room luxury boutique hotel, bar, restaurant and drawing rooms, delivering 21st-century warmth, humour and total comfort.The Ampersand Hotel is situated just a minute's walk from South Kensington tube station, and is well connected to Heathrow airport. ... more   less
