The Franklin London - Starhotels Collezione
There’s always an occasion to celebrate at The Franklin!
Time Out says
From the edge of Belgravia to the heart of La Belle Époque.
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 neighbours Harrods and the V&A. But 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.
