Hotel
From the interior design of our rooms to the collections and curiosities, our luxury boutique hotel in South Kensington unites guests with the local surrounding area through the five themes of botany, music, geometry, ornithology and astronomy. The hotel also features a restaurant serving fresh Mediterranean food.
 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Ampersand Hotel's unique concept is inspired by the capital's world-famous museum district and the iconic ampersand symbol, which illustrates the hotel's role in connecting its guests to the best of South Kensington. The hotel, which opened in its modern incarnation in summer 2012, was originally built as a boutique hotel. Values of discovery and wonder appear in the design of all 111 Luxury rooms and suites, from the pattern of the V&A's costume collection, to the Science Museum's planets, from the Natural History Museum's ornithological drawings to the drama and ceremony of the Royal Albert Hall.

Apero is among Kensington's best restaurants. With an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere, our food includes easy-going Mediterranean cooking while in The Drawing Rooms, our all-day coffee, patisserie and light bite menus can be enjoyed in a room that's always busy with a convivial neighbourhood spirit. We have a choice of three spaces, The Games Room, The Library & The Wine Room available for hire separately or together, all of them sharing the building's Victorian roots while being decorated in eclectic style and kitted out with the latest technology. In addition, we offer the latest equipment in our 24 hour Gym and a Table Tennis which guests are welcome to use when it's not in use for events. For things to do in London, we can direct you to the neighbourhood's best shops, which includes nearby Brompton Cross, Knightsbridge and Chelsea, as well as what's on in London's museum district on the Cromwell Road.

Excellent service! Rooms are very nice with modern decor. The hotel restaurant has very good cocktails and the food is one of the best that you could ever find. This is the second time we visit the hotel and definitely will be back.

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.  As well as the hotel’s well-equipped gym, guests will have access to information regarding horse riding, private trainers and running routes.  Within 2 minutes’ walk of the Natural History Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum, Harrods and Hyde Park are just 15 minutes away by foot.

It's a lovely hotel. My wife and I ate out at a great restaurant nearby but the breakfast at the hotel was nice. The staff are friendly and helpful. Great location, relaxed and comfortable room that is modern and clean. We slept well and enjoyed our stay in South Kensington

Great hotel - always clean with welcoming staff and an amazing location. Rooms are very small (not a problem for me but just something to know when booking).

Made a booking on the day via opentable, when we arrived we were told that the booking was on the system. Had to wait for 20 minutes for a free table. They got the first drink order wrong and a drink had to be sent back. A quiche was missing from one of the afternoon teas that was ordered. They removed the tiering of the plates before we had finished, which impacted our afternoon tea experience. The wait staff were friendly but I felt they were too error prone.

Dear Seb, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience in The Drawing Rooms. I am sorry the service you received was not to our usual high level. Please rest assured the issues you have raised have been addressed with the team to ensure the service we provide is improved. We would like to welcome you back to experience afternoon tea again, should you choose to do so please contact Thomas, Food & Beverage Manager, and he will be delighted to personally look after you. Kind regards, Tracey

What I liked: Very convenient location opposite the South Kensington underground station. Original yet elegant design of the public spaces and rooms. Egyptian cotton bed linens. Two types of pillows: firm and soft. Radiant heat and rain shower head in the bathroom. iMacs and color printer available at all times. Fast Wi-Fi. Very friendly and professional staff. Lunch in the drawing rooms. What I didn't like: Teeny size of the room. Very confusing over-designed light controls. Electronic do-not-disturb sign that can be turned on accidentally, resulting in no cleaning of the room that day.

Excellent afternoon tea! Good selection of teas and the vegetarian sandwiches were an imaginative selection, rather than a token gesture. The staff were helpful and polite.
