Ampersand Hotel tops London hotels on Hot New Hotels lists from TripAdvisor

Three London hotels are amongst the top 10 new hotels in Europe, according to the Hot New Hotels list from online review site TripAdvisor.

The Ampersand Hotel, the InterContinental Westminster and Café Royal have been placed second, fourth and seventh respectively on the list, while Ampersand also been rated eighth on the worldwide list.

Both the Hot New Hotels lists for Europe and the World feature properties that opened between June 2012 and 2013 and received a minimum of 30 reviews from visitors.

The 111-roomed Ampersand hotel, in London's South Kensington, is the UK's highest ranked hotel. Drawing on inspiration from the nearby museums of the Victoria & Albert, Science, and Natural History, the 11-bedroom Ampersand evokes the themes of botany, music, geometry, ornithology and astronomy.

Roberto Pajares, general manager of the Ampersand, said: "We're absolutely delighted to receive this incredible recognition from the world's largest travel site, especially as it comes straight from the travellers themselves. This is a truly proud moment."

Barbara Messing, chief marketing officer at TripAdvisor, added: "TripAdvisor has identified the new hotels that have made lasting impressions on our community. We encourage travellers to check out, or ‘check in' to, these new hotels that are getting high reviews from other travellers."
