We love new openings, especially those that carry heritage and tradition. The Ampersand Hotel is one of those projects that has recently re-launched, opening its doors on Harrington Road in the heart of South Kensington. The building itself was built in 1888, thus the hotel is one of London’s original boutique hotels. The 111 exquisite bedrooms have been inspired by the local London neighbourhood, from the music of the Royal Albert Hall to the Chelsea Physic Garden’s flowers. The concept lies in the 5 themes devoted to botany, music, geometry, ornithology and astronomy.
A unique design does not end in the guestrooms, one cannot depart without having first explored the dinning options that The Ampersand Hotel has to offer. The Drawing Rooms decorated with deep sofas and studded armchairs, scarlet velvets, and kingfisher blue can be described as a beautiful catwalk showcasing French finesse and British style. Who is in for a fashion statement? Here guests can enjoy the fashionable menu at any time of day, from a London afternoon tea to a delicate flute of fine Champagne. Apero is an intimate, laidback restaurant with a menu inspired by the freshness and quality of the Mediterranean ingredients. Don’t hesitate to try the Cocktails created from the finest boutique spirits and complement the playful small plates inspired by modern Mediterranean. For a private dining and wining experience the hotel offers The Wine Room set under the Victorian brick vaults, featuring polished basalt floor and oak banqueting tables. The Ampersand’s unique concept is guaranteed to leave everyone in awe.
