The Ampersand Hotel South Kensington
Built in 1888, The Ampersand Hotel is one of London’s original Victorian boutique hotels which has undergone an extensive refurbishment by Studio Moren. Located on Harrington Road, only moments away from South Kensington tube station, The Ampersand Hotel is an impressive building encompassing 5,665ft².
The design concept takes inspiration from the nearby cultural district with the themes of botany, ornithology, astronomy, geometry and music intricately incorporated into the bespoke guest rooms and public areas. The hotel includes 111 guestrooms, the Drawing Room which serves afternoon tea and champagne cocktails, and destination bar and restaurant Apero.
