The Franklin Hotel
The Franklin hotel Knightsbridge is located in the heart of Kensington amongst a row of gorgeous Victorian townhouses. It is surrounded by the stunning Egerton Gardens and just a stone’s throw away from the famous Victoria and Albert Museum.
When I arrived at this hotel, I was greeted by extremely friendly staff both at the door and at check-in. The professionalism of the staff added to the absolute luxury of the hotel.
The decor was a real treat for the eyes and the attention to detail really showed off the luxurious Italian styling.
I was shown to one of the 35 rooms and suites, which I found to be exquisitely furnished for total comfort. As with most of my trips, I needed Wi-Fi to attend to some business and, of course, in a place such as this, it was not only free in my room, but also throughout the whole hotel.
After dropping my bags in my room, I headed to dinner at The Franklin Restaurant, which is onsite. It is run by Michelin-starred Chef, Alfredo Russo, and is one of London’s top restaurants. The food was nothing short of exquisite, all cooked and served with the utmost care, I can see why it is currently at the top of the Capital’s restaurant list.
Before checking out of the hotel, I found some time to visit the Hammam and spa, which did not disappoint. The Hammam, in particular, was very relaxing with stunning decor. I could have stayed there for ages!
Starhotels have 29 hotels in some of the most beautiful destinations in Italy, Europe and the US. All of them are perfectly located in the heart of the most beautiful cities in the world. I was so wowed by the Knightsbridge venue, I would love to visit another one somewhere in Europe, maybe for my next trip in December!
