The Franklin captures that rarest of qualities: serenity.
Its secluded English gardens are the perfect counterpoint to bustling Knightsbridge.
The hotel combines the warmth of a private home, the impeccable service of a
Grand Hotel and Anouska Hempel’s timeless, Italian-influenced design.
A spectacular hammam and garden-fronting restaurant and champagne bar need
exploring. However, it is The Franklin’s tailored experiences, which are as individual
as its guests, that make it so much more than just another luxury hotel.
