The Franklin

OPENED August 09th, 2016

One of the first of the classic boutique townhouse hotels in London, The Franklin has recently undergone an epically stylish revamp. The Hotel’s new interior was designed by none other than Bond-Girl-turned hotelier/interior designer Anouska Hempel. Italian Entreprener  Elisabetta Fabri, the President and CEO of the Florence-based Starhotels group, acquired the property two years ago and has finally put together the desired vision for the hotel. The renaissance of the hotel comes in the form of implemented intimacy and refined details.

Encompassed by the peaceful beauty of the private Egerton Gardens, the sophisticated Victorian building contains 53 spacious rooms and suites, including the coveted 63-square-metre Presidential Suite. Late and striking Victorian windows bathe the room in natural light from outside and the space has been given a creatively inspired touch with Anouska Hempel’s travel-influenced design. Grey limestone and Carrara pervades the ground floor, whilst the mirrored furniture, traditional Italian velvets and silks, and Turkish Ikaats add a homely feel.

The amenities at The Franklin are naturally luxurious and include an Italian restaurant with Michelin-starred chef Alfredo Russo at the helm, a health and wellbeing  floor with a Hammam and Gym, and a Champagne and Martini Bar for indulgent hours overlooking the gardens. Due to its boutique-style nature, The Franklin will pride itself on highly personalised service and a dedicated Guest Experience Team who will assist guests and tailor their bespoke London adventures.
