The Franklin

Hotel Highlights

  • Leafy Knightsbridge neighbourhood setting
  • Glamorous interiors by Anouska Hempel
  • Restaurant spearheaded by Michelin-starred chef Alfredo Russo

Luxury Hotel in London

The bygone era is back at this golden-age London boutique

When it comes to the art of living luxuriously, The Franklin is the grand master. Exquisitely opulent and effortlessly chic, it rekindles the spirit of La Belle Époque London – reinvented for the modern era. Elegant and romantic too, from the moment you step inside, it will sweep you off your feet.

At first glance, The Franklin is a grand English townhouse. But there’s nothing textbook about this one-off retreat. Interior design blends contemporary British style with Parisian flair, and Gatsby-era influences within the bar – with its mirror walls and mixologist-made martinis. On-the-ball service comes courtesy of Les Clefs d’Or concierges, while a snug library and showpiece hammam welcome you back after a day spent out and about in London.   

The luxury stores of Knightsbridge are just a hop, skip and jump from The Franklin’s front door. But to see London in true golden-age style, slip inside a classic Rolls-Royce or Jaguar limousine. Nothing quite compares to seeing the skyline, galleries, palaces and royal parks on a balmy day from a 1920s car with the roof down.
