The Franklin London – Starhotels Collezione

Set in an elegant Victorian building nestling in the lush beauty of the private Egerton Gardens, The Franklin combines the warmth of a private home with the impeccable service of a luxury hotel. The hotel has recently been refurbished by celebrity designer Anouska Hempel, whose work has helped create a temple to hospitality. Here, the charm of an English house meets the magic of Italian design, and the result is a unique, original style that has transformed the Franklin into one of the most outstanding 5-star boutique hotels on the London scene.

Room Layouts & Capacities

The Franklin, overlooking the verdant parkland of Egerton Gardens, is a close Knightsbridge neighbour of Harrods and the Victorian & Albert Museum.

Every one of the 35 spacious rooms and suites, including the 63 m2 Presidential Suite – the ultimate distillation of elegance and style – is flooded with light and exquisitely furnished for total comfort. Most rooms offer views of Knightsbridge or the verdant parkland of Egerton Gardens.

The Franklin is also renowned for its restaurant, presided over by Michelin-starred Chef Alfredo Russo, and the Gatsby-esque ambience of its stylish Bar. Gourmets from London and abroad now consider The Franklin Restaurant to be an essential destination. Here diners can enjoy a superb gastronomic experience choosing from a menu that includes delightfully simple, Italian inspired elegant dishes. The adjoining Franklin Bar is a glamorous, mirror-lined, Roaring ‘20s-style interior, a wonderful place to enjoy a Martini cocktail or a glass of Champagne.

Whether for a business meeting or a cocktail party, a formal lunch or a movie set, The Library at The Franklin is a pleasant setting for small gatherings, receptions and presentations for up to 20 people. Situated on the ground floor, the light-infused and calming space reprises the stone and marble flooring of the common areas, with a vast marble mirror, an open English style fireplace and a carefully selected book collection.
