The Franklin Hotel A relaxed townhouse hotel a few moments walk from the shopping and nightlife of Knightsbridge, The Franklin is universally praised for its staff, who are on hand to help with everything from jogging routes or personal shopping. It reopened under the ownership of Starhotels in 2016 with a completely fresh look from renowned designer Anouska Hempel, famous for boutique hotel Blakes. Eastern influences with echoes of Italy and Morocco can be seen in whites Carrara marble floors, floor-to-ceiling Venetian screens, hangings from Istanbul and wrought iron balustrades. The resulting dramatic-yet-whimsical design creates a standout hotel on the luxury London scene. Oversized Venetian mirrors oversee the restaurant while mirrored walls line The Franklin Bar next door to create a stylish, Gatsby-esque escape for pre-dinner drinks or a cocktail. Sweat it out in the fitness room and relax in the Hammam on the lower ground floor.
