The Ampersand Hotel

South Kensington

The Ampersand Hotel opened in South Kensington in August 2012.

The Ampersand hotel features 111 bedrooms and suites decorated with splashes of contemporary art, inspired by the surrounding museums (Natural History, Science and Victoria & Albert) and the Royal Albert Hall, with ‘botany, music, geometry, ornithology and astronomy’ ‘intricately incorporated throughout’.

The ground floor of the hotel will feature ‘The Dining Rooms’ patisserie lounge and ‘Apero’ will be on the lower ground floor, ‘a vaulted destination cocktail and dining experience’.

Brunch is popular at its restaurant, Apero at The Ampersand Hotel, which brings a stylish and satisfyingly gentle twist to a weekend brunch.
