Beautiful hotel with fantastic attention to detail. Our stay was made pleasurable by the exceptional staff and welcoming environment. Topped off by the spectacular pastries in the Drawing Room.
Helpful and friendly staff, good location, stylish interior, fast WiFi. One feels at home in this quiet part of London.
The bed was very nice and big, but the room should be bigger to accommodate such a bed comfortably. Also, it would be nice to have different types of meat at breakfast, not only pork.
The staff was helpful and friendly with great attention to detail, our room was good with the most comfortable bed we have ever had in a hotel. We really enjoyed the afternoon tea . This wax a treat for my Husband's 50th and didn't disappoint

Great location, Quiet, clean,great room service.
Had to hunt for the mini bar/refrigerator in the standard room. Small closet, but everything you needed was there.
Very polite, helpful, accommodating staff. Well decorated rooms, luxurious bed linen, lovely bathroom. Complimentary mini-bar, which was well stocked with soft drinks and fresh milk. Decent wi-fi
Beautiful hotel, lots of nice touches, super-friendly & helpful staff.
Teensy, teensy room. Service in the Drawing room was occasionally unavailable.
The beautiful decor The helpful staff and concierge Stunning breakfast buffet with quality food and great coffee The location - super close to South Kensington tube station The tea lounge
What's not too like!
-Location was excellent, close to shops and the tube station. -Surrounded by beautiful buildings. -Walking distance to museums and excellent shops. -Lovely friendly helpful staff -Fantastic sized room and bathroom. -Free secure Wi-Fi with easy access -Very clean and freshly decorated -Delicious breakfasts and good value by London standards. -Turn right outside the hotel and there are loads of restaurants down the streets that run off this road. I think I counted seven in a small area. I will definitely recommend to friends and family and can't wait to return on my next trip.
Great location Stylish design Very helpful staff
Price on the high side
Position, kindness of the staff, top quality services, superb decor
Only the the food in the restruant
the hotel is beautiful and very close to the metro station. also the showers are very clean and nice with heated floor. there was a very good restaurant for breakfast/ lunch by the metro station close to the hotel.we had an amazing time in london!
The style of the hotel is wonderful; modern, clean, very appealing. The staff was superb, very helpful and friendly. The amenities in the room were excellent; loved the free beverages in the fridge and coffee and tea. Bathroom very functional with shelf space instead of a counter. Lovely shower, and great bath products. Bed was very comfortable. No noise whatsoever at night, a huge plus! Lots of restaurants and pubs in the neighborhood, and very close to the SoKen Underground station.
The room was smaller than I would have liked - if someone were sitting at the desk, you couldn't get around from one side of the bed to the other. Not a deal breaker for me, but you'd expect a few more inches for the price! It's not an inexpensive hotel to say the least, but of course, London isn't a cheap destination. For a special occasion, staying at the Ampersand was worth it.
The hotel was beautiful, the location was perfect and the staff were so friendly and helpful. We didn't want to leave!
The double bed was a bit small for us but we are both very tall.
The hotel's name The Ampersand caught my eye on Booking.com. The photos looked promising and it was a good value (on special that day). Then the hotel rocked from the location to the service to all of the amenities. Didi who helped us in the tea room and at breakfast went above and beyond. The check in was smooth and the IT guy came when we couldn't figure out the wifi (not difficult afterall). The sleep was super comfortable. Everything just as you would like. And the decor is beautiful. After a month on the road it was a delightful surprise to save the best for last.
We stumbled on the wifi at first because when we turned on the television it didn't start at the welcome "page". Small, small problem that was overcome with immediate help.
Staff is very welcoming and attentive. Loved the design of the entire hotel, including the rooms. The restaurant downstairs has a great breakfast buffet and menu. Afternoon tea was lovely with wonderful food. The location is great, near an underground station and within walking distance to some great sights in Kensington.
Price is pretty hefty, but I guess you get what you pay for.
Staff went out of their way to be helpful especially Indira. Location was superb with taxi rank out front and Tube across the road.
Our superior room was very small and the bathroom so small that 2 people could not get in at the same time. We upgraded to abigger room but it was expensive and we expected more for a superior room
Excellent location. Two minutes from tube. Staff very friendly & welcoming. Room small but beautifully decorated as was the rest of the hotel. Will recommend and stay again. Emails from the hotel prior to arrival, nice touch. Fantastic hotel!
Nice and simple restaurant meant no need to leave the hotel
First room offered was rather small but second one excellent
