The Franklin Hotel

28 Egerton Gardens Knightsbridge London SW3 2DB England

The Franklin Hotel - London, England
Description

The Franklin is a place to enjoy rather than just stay: it can hardly be called an hotel at all! Made up of four lovely Victorian mansions near Harrods, it does not even look like one. What hotel has bedrooms which lead straight into a large garden shared with other local residents? Or how many hotels have their own restaurant but also give you a guide to some of the very best places to eat within ten minutes walk or cab ride? There isn't a barman in sight but there is a well-stocked bar - so just help yourself and sign a chit for the honour box!,The rooms were designed by the Duchess of Roxburghe and decorated by craftsmen. Personal touches include sumptuous fabrics, antique furniture and authentic objets d'art and oil paintings. The drawing room, which also leads into the garden, is what you would expect to find in an elegant private house. The Franklin is a country home in central London. Find it and you'll fall in love with it.
