My family and I regularly stay at the Franklin Central Apartments as they can accommodate a family of 5 in their 2 bedroom apartment. The apartments are in a great location, a few minutes walk the mall, Gouger Street, North Terrace, Adelaide oval and are always very clean and tidy. The staff are so friendly and helpful and on one... More

It's a two minute walk to the grocery store and the Central Markets. There is also parking available onsite, which we used four a few night for... More

Very large and clean apartment although a little noisy. Nice cafe downstairs for breakfast and an easy walk to the restaurants on Gouger St and also through some lane ways to Rundle Mall. Due to the Fringe Festival and Soundwave there wasn't a lot of accommodation on offer last weekend, but we were pleasantly surprised with the Franklin Central Apartments.

clean, one double room but the second one had only a single bed, there was a sofa in the living room but the matress was too thin (only kids with less weight can sleep there) for adults, small bathroom, very good restaurants around the corner

We only stayed one night - opening of the Fringe Festival in Adelaide - and were surprised for a few reasons: 1. we were able to get a two bedroom apartment for under $150 per night 2. the arrangement of the rooms at Franklin Central. Like a lot of reviewers have suggested, the main bedroom is rather gloomy, looking out... More

There are much nicer places to stay in Adelaide. I stayed here only because all other accommodations were booked due to World Cup cricket being in Adelaide. Prices were inflated because of this. I don't have a problem with the management increasing the price when demand is high. But, the desk clerk while being very nice, was extremely frazzled and... More

We travelled to Adelaide over the weekend at the time of the Fringe Festival and India/Pakistan cricket match. Booking only two weeks in advance, almost all accommodation was booked out, except Franklin Central Apartments. Being one of the only accommodation options left, I didn't expect much, but the place was certainly a positive surprise. It is located in a good... More

I stayed at Franklin Central Apartments for work in Adelaide for three weeks. Not only was the room everything I needed, but the staff on the front desk were very helpful.
