Boutique Hotel in South Kensington – The Ampersand
Rooms all feature complimentary WiFi, tea/coffee making facilities, soft drinks, 24-hour room service, LCD TVs with movies on demand, a media hub, laptop safe and air-conditioning. In a nod to the local French influence, toiletries are by L’Occitane.
The bathroom was like a Dior dress, petite, chic and clad in black and white; and the quirky addition of a rubber duck meant that my solo bath time was more playful than it otherwise would have been.
After a blissful night’s sleep, I strolled down to Apero – The Ampersand’s Mediterranean restaurant – for breakfast. With cooked options also available, the buffet was the best I have seen in a long time. Everything was homemade and really fresh – my tortilla was excellent!
London has thousands of hotels but if you are looking for a boutique hotel that is both quiet and central, has a strong sense of individuality combined with great service and an attention to comfort and detail, then The Ampersand is well worth looking at.
