Set in an elegant Victorian building surrounded by the beauty and lushness of the private Egerton Gardens, a perfect counterpoint to bustling Knightsbridge and neighbour of Harrods and the Victoria & Albert Museum, the hotel combines the warmth of a private home, the impeccable service of a luxury hotel and Anouska Hempel’s timeless, Italian-influenced design.
The Franklin is located in three quintessentially English, elegant Victorian terrace buildings which back onto the manicured peace of private Egerton Gardens. Vast windows fill the building with light and many of its rooms look out onto the gardens beyond. alongside the informal English townhouse ambience and relaxing London-garden views there are other more sensual, Eastern influences. A Hammam greets guests as part of our state-of-the art wellbeing offering and the bedrooms’ rich silks and cottons reveal The Franklin’s devotion to luxurious living touches every sense. The Franklin Restaurant by Alfredo Russo is guided by Michelin-starred Italian Executive Chef Alfredo Russo, voted Italy’s Best Young Chef in his early career. Russo’s menu is accessible yet sophisticated – designed for the entire family. The Franklin restaurant offers an authentic, traditional Italian cuisine with best ingredients and most innovative techniques, featuring a fine-dining a la carte menu: a mix of simplicity and sophistication.
