Charmingly tucked away in a stunning row of Victorian Townhouses with striking views over Egerton Gardens, The Franklin combines the warmth of a private home, the impeccable service of a Grand Hotel and Anouska Hempel's timeless, Italian-influenced design. Its secluded English gardens are the perfect counterpoint to bustling Knightsbridge.

Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.

The Franklin is one of the best hotels I ever stayed in. The room was simply beautiful. I ordered roomservice late after work - amazing food and just perfect service. Breakfast was delicious, too. Just a perfect place to stay and I will be back on my next trip to London.

"The hotel is located on a quiet residential street in an excellent neighborhood so I would not think that noise would be a factor."
"Will book a room looking into the garden the next time, although rooms looking over the front street is not a problem."
"The rooms overlooking the gardens are wonderful."
"Whilst we had a room facing the street and it was very quiet, next time I'd ask for a room with a view of the garden"
"Try to get a room overseeing the courtyard."
