We chose Franklin Apartments for our stay in Adelaide. The location was good but not so large even with tow bedrooms for four peoples. The accommodation was what we needed for one night,. Cleaned well equiped. Hotel is not far from chinese district ans supermarket a place to go. Staff is welcoming

Good location in the heart of the city, close to everything from central markets to rundle mall,even if you don't have a car nothing's to far away in the city,car parking is tight in the underground car park but you are in the city and have to make sacrifices.we stayed here for 3 weeks with no complaints.

Great central location, serviced 2 bed apartments. Can be a little warm if it's hot, but just ask the staff for a pedestal fan. The apartment is clea, tidy and has all the basics including a washer and dryer. One block North of the markets if you want to cook in residence. Some lovely coffee shops nearby too. All staff...

So glad we chose Franklin Apartments recently for our stay in Adelaide. The location was perfect. Close to China Town, markets and supermarket. Close to tram, taxi and buses. Easy walk to Rundle Mall. The accommodation was just right for what we needed, self contained, two bedrooms. Neat and clean. Staff were friendly and willing to help us with anything... More

Central location. Couple of minutes walk to Adelaide markets. Free city bus nearby. Rooms clean and had everything you needed. Staff helpful and friendly. Car parking at apartments is a little tight so a big car may struggle but still a great price for parking in the city and really convenient as the lift takes you straight down to carpark.... More

Dear jennywhincup, Thank you for your review. We are very pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable stay in our property. The entry/exit to our car park can take a little bit of getting used to, however it is a wonderful facility to be able to offer guests as many properties in the CBD do not have on-site parking....

I have stayed here before so it was an easy choice to stay here again. There were 3 children and 2 adults in a two bedroom apt, we had a kitchen with all appliances we required, washing machine and dryer in the bathroom and plenty of room to move around. One room had a single bed, one a double and... More

This was our second stay at these apartments. Even though the second bedroom is small with a single bed, there is more than enough room for one person. We also used the sofa bed for the children and they were quite comfortable sleeping on it. The apartments are about 10 minutes walk from the Mall. They are also easy to... More

Great location for the central part of the city, helpful and friendly staff. The rooms are spacious if a little basic, clean and tidy but they just look a little drab and could do with a bit of a refurb. I think this is a hertiage building of some kind as it has a strange feel to it. The main... More

Dear Lost Passport, Thank you for your review. It is pleasing to hear that you had an enjoyable stay in our property.

Stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment overnight on 2/1/2015. On arrival a terse receptionist told me we would have to take the stairs to our fifth floor accommodation as "her lifts" were out of order. As this was out of the question, 1 guest with a torn ligament in foot and another guest with a damaged knee (both just under... More

Dear Julie D, Thank you for your wonderful review. It is wonderful to hear that you had a great stay at our property and that you found the location even more appealing.
