Score from 914 reviews Very good
We spent a brilliant 5 days at The Franklin over the New Years period and would recommend the hotel to anyone thinking of staying in the upper east side area. Apart from the perfect location: just a few blocks from Central Park and the museums, the subway is just around the corner, it's good to get away from the crowds downtown after a busy day. Cheese and wine every evening is a nice touch! Staff are great too. Highly recommended.
Lovely hotel and very good location close to subway line down town and near to the park and Metropolitan museum. The staff could not have been kinder or more helpful. A genuinely enjoyable experience to stay here. Thoroughly recommend.
Location to museums cleanliness and nice bed
rugs were dirty sink was extremely small and uncomfortable to reach
Window allowed a bit too much fresh air in, while the city was at 7 degrees.
Stuff are friendly. The hotel is small and cozy. Most importantly it is located in the center of upper east side. That comes with the advantage of only 10 minutes walk away from Museum mile and Central Park.
You will be disappointed if you want to order room services.
Convenience of location
Nothing but static on the television and staff did nothing to help. I expect the TV to work in a $300 + a night hotel room.
size of the room. Elevator didn't work the last day.
We like the coziness and location of the hotel. The train stop was just around the corner. The staff was helpful and personable.
Because the building is small, our room was also small. With a queen size bed in the room, it was difficult to walk around.
Amazing little boutique hotel with warm welcome and excellent staff throughout stay. Big room and comfiest bed; excellent facilities and felt very luxurious. I shouldn't be telling you this (I want it to myself), but stay stay stay!!!
The character and atmosphere.
Perhaps not initial explanation of how self-service breakfast arrangements work.
Very helpful and friendly staff Very clean Comfortable bed Quiet
The Location was excellent in a place like manhattan
Funny WiFi, Once you close the door of your room, you lose the signal, to get the signal back you have to open the door and stay by it or to completely get out of the room. Additionally, the staff were not helpful and their presentation was very bad. When I was checking in, the lady at the reception was speaking on the phone, apparently with a friend, and she did not bother hang up. When I complained about the internet, they always say they fixed it but nothing changed Very poor breakfast in a very very very very tight room.
Convenient locale to where I was going. Nice staff.
No thermostat to control the heat. Quite hot. TV reception was terrible.
Quaint, clean, well appointed, friendly staff, good service.
The bed is very comfy, water pressure in the shower is great, and room is clean.
Room is get small, cannot find a outlet near the bed which makes charging my phone difficult, and wifi is very bad basically you can't do anything with it.
The desk people were extremely friendly and helpful! The room is small but totally sufficient and comfortable! Location is great as well. It has an old-world hotel charm about it!
Friendly staff, quiet room, comfortable bed, continental breakfast included, coffee available 24 hours.
Rooms could be a little cramped for some?
Very bad quality for the price. Old & small rooms, no bell boy, no in room dining.
Closet, small, a/c, smell,noise ,wifi poor, too dam expensive!
Carmen at the front desk was amazing....made our trip so easy!
Anywhere else if I paid over $400. for a room that size, I would rate in poorly. But it is New York and it was in a good location, easy walking distance to Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum which was what we wanted. But the room is small! But it was a nice room and the staff was very helpful and friendly. We don't eat breakfast so can't comment on that. Complimentary wine was offered in the afternoon but we were out.
The price is still high but I guess to be expected. The Wifi was poor. My husband had to stand by the room's door to receive a signal.
Location (family nearby), but near the Eastside museums and the Lexington Ave line Front desk staff and Bellmen all great, friendly and helpful
Very poor WiFi signal (Usually could not even connect) Rooms are small Price skyrocketed from prior stay VERY Noisy window AC (hence, only fair quality of sleep) No in-room coffee maker
Comfortable bed,very adequate breakfast, wine and cheese early evening when one had an opportunity to chat with other guests.
Nothing. Other reviewers have mentioned the size of the rooms,ours was fine, we were out all day.
The location was great. Many bars and restaurants, short walk to Central Park.
The room was very small with a queen sized bed. No sink in the bathroom was slightly inconvenient. Our room's smoke detector ran out of battery and the constant "beeping" kept us up all morning.
