Summary

The fantastic location in the heart of Knightsbridge, the lavish interiors and quintessentially Italian hospitality have transformed The Franklin London  Starhotels Collezione into one of the most outstanding 5-star hotels in the London scene.

Tucked away on a quiet residential street, surrounded by the timeless charm of the Egerton Gardens, The Franklin is nonetheless in the heart of one of London’s most prestigious neighborhoods. Split across four classic early Victorian buildings, the hotel sits on the fringes of Knightsbridge, just a short walk from Harrods and The Victoria & Albert Museum.

While many of the front-side rooms face the beautiful and historic Brompton Oratory, the back of the building looks out onto the private, tranquil lawns, flowerbeds and lofty plane trees of the Egerton Gardens.

Dotted with espaliered pear trees, the peaceful and green space, open to the hotel’s guests, provides the perfect counterpoint to the bustling Knightsbridge streets.

Part of a Grade II-listed building, the original house dates back to the 1840s, when it was originally built as three of the 24 terraces that comprise the sweeping Egerton Crescent, designed by the Georgian architect George Basevi, on one of London’s most exclusive streets.

Acquired by Starhotels in 2014, the hotel underwent a full renovation, maintaining many original features, and reopened in Autumn 2016 with a completely fresh look from renowned designer Anouska Hempel
