Neighbour to Harrods and Victoria & Albert Museum, The Franklin is simultaneously in the hub of cultural shopping entertainment and secluded from the business of London, tucked away in a private, elegant row of Victorian townhouses with a scenic view of Egerton Gardens.
The Franklin is certainly home to those who enjoy a more romantic era of history. The hotel’s history reflects the gilded age, and with the talents of Anouska Hempel, the hotel’s interior became what is now to be described as elegantly opulent. From embroidered furniture to Venetian stone floors, Hempel took the spirit of the era and turned into into a modern creation. This quintessentially English hotel also indulges in Eastern influences, as a Hammam greets guests and bedrooms are adorned with rich silks and cottons.
The hotel’s in-site restaurant guided by the talented hands of Alfredo Russo offers a unique culinary experience with the freshest, finest ingredients and inventive flavour combinations. The Franklin certainly knows how to achieve luxury living.
