Behind the Victorian façade of this well-situated West London pied-a-terre, you'll find a bijoux interior inspired by the hotel’s location in the museum quarter, with rooms decorated along themes of botany, music and astronomy.
In cultured, charming South Kensington stands The Ampersand, tall as a Queen’s Guard, and twice and handsome. Behind its white stone façade, you'll find a modern and bijoux hotel inspired by its museum-mile, South Ken locale.
We love the Ampersand's light-filled spaces, designed by Dexter Moren. The hotel’s famous High Tea, served in the Drawing Rooms, is a quintessential London experience. The Apero bar is fun and the barmen friendly. Rooms are chic, and—top tip— upgrading from a Standard to a Deluxe room using your credits is totally worth it.
PS. To see the real Queens' Horse Guards, be at nearby Hyde Park at 10.28am any day.
Home of prestigious museums and London's elite, South Kensington is the quintessentially London neighborhood. Fashionable, architecturally appealing, historically rich, and internationally minded, this quarter is the perfect place to call home on a visit to London.
It's a short walk from The Ampersand to The Natural History Museum, the Victoria & Albert Museum, and the Science Museum—all free to visit. In fact, you’re perfectly placed for excursions throughout the city. Walk two minutes to reach High Street Kensington and the tube, hop a quick cab to Mayfair for London's most beautiful shopping, or the cobblestoned cul-de-sacs of Notting Hill. Pop across the Thames for both an authentic Japanese pagoda, The Peace Pergola, and prim and proper English garden at Battersea Park.
