The Ampersand Hotel 5 stars

Kensington, London

Bedrooms at The Ampersand are individually decorated with bold contemporary wallpaper designs and original Victorian features. Each room has a minibar, a flat-screen TV with satellite channels, and an en suite bathroom. We loved this hotel. The location is brilliant, it's located right next to South Kensington tube station (about a 30 second walk away) so it's super easy to get around. You have the museums and Harrods within walking distance, and there are loads of lovely local restaurants around that area too. Bus to Soho takes about 20 mins from right outside the hotel. Gorgeous and spacious suite, the bath in the window was incredible and a lovely surprise. The bed was huge and extremely comfortable, and the bathroom was amazing (especially the shower). Free mini bar too which was nice. Oh and lovely staff! For the quality of the rooms and the location of the hotel, I'd expect to pay a lot more. Can't fault anything. We'll definitely stop again.
