Sometimes, remaking the present begins with revisiting the past. The Franklin’s romance recalls a gilded age. Anouska Hempel’s elegantly opulent interiors achieve the seemingly impossible in this new Knightsbridge hotel. Her embroidered furnishings, Venetian stone floors and filigree silverware capture the spirit of a glorious bygone era and create something entirely modern. 

However it isn’t just epochs that come together effortlessly here. The Franklin Boutique Hotel is as quintessentially English as its near neighbors Harrods and the V&A. But alongside the informal English townhouse ambience and relaxing London-garden views there are other more sensual, Eastern influences.

The Franklin offers 35 rooms and suites exquisitely furnished for total comfort. A hammam greets guests as part of the hotel’s state-of-the art well-being offering and the bedrooms’ rich silks and cottons reveal The Franklin’s devotion to luxurious living touches every sense.

Gourmets from London and abroad now consider the hotel’s Franklin Restaurant to be an essential destination. This modern Italian restaurant is the domain of Michelin-starred Chef Alfredo Russo. Here guests can enjoy a breathtaking fine-dining experience, a combination of simplicity, sophistication and quality seasonal ingredients. There is seating for just 30 diners, in an intimate space with a view of the garden.
