The location was perfect, close to the Central Market and lots of great restaurants. The spacious apartment, while minimally decorated, was very, very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed, full sized refrigerator, cooktop, microwave, oven and dishwasher, and the bathroom included a washer and separate dryer. The staff members we encountered were all very friendly and helpful We would definitely return!

Family holiday. Two bedroom apartment was great. Everything you need for an Adelaide stay provided e.g. Fridge for your Central Market goodies, kitchen, lounge tv etc. Clean, daily room makeup, helpful front desk staff. Would return, no problem.

Thank Franklins!
We have just got back from four lovely nights in Adelaide. And thanks to Franklins, it was a great stay.
Out trip was delayed by one day because of the volcanic ash. One phone call to Franklins and they moved our booking, no questions asked.
When we arrived early they put us into our room early. That was much appreciated.
And then when we got into our apartment we found we had been upgraded to a two bedroom apartment which was also appreciated as I had arrived with a bad cold and this meant my husband could escape my coughing.
The only very small negative was that apartment was a little tired, but the huge space, which was very clean, free movie channels and fox, all the conveniences including dishwashing powder, laundry powder and beautiful fluffy towels more than made up for it.
The location is terrific. A street away from the famous Central Markets, a few streets away from Rundle Mall, and near most of the great restaurants and cafes. We say thank you to Franklin Apartments. We will be back.

Stayed in a 2 bdr for one week and can't recommend it highly enough. The living room was spacious, comfortably furnished, well heated and light. The kitchen was well equipped with dishwasher, full fridge and stove. Beds were comfortable with great storage space albeit a bit dingy due to little natural outside light but that didn't worry us. Bathroom was excellent , sparklingly clean. On that subject, cleaning staff were outstanding, thorough and efficient each day of our stay replenishing all kitchen and bathroom products. You can't do better for location in Adelaide as the Franklin is slap bang in the middle of all you'd want to see - Central Market, Rundle Mall, North Terrace, Glenelg tram are all a 5-10 minute walk away. Lovely friendly and helpful reception staff too.

After reading good reviews on this site, we chose to stay at Franklin Central Apartments for three nights in June.

The hotel was perfectly located in the centre of the city, close to restaurants, shopping and public transport. The hotel was clean and tidy, staff extremely friendly and helpful and rooms spacious and well equipped. With kitchen and laundry facilities, the apartments are much larger than a hotel room, but still serviced daily, and cheaper than most hotels.

I would definitely choose to stay here again if I was to return to Adelaide.

Stayed in a one bedroom apartment on the second floor. Apartment was spacious and clean. Dishwasher and washing machine and dryer were great although a little bit noisy. Felt very secure and safe. Staff very friendly and helpful. We were also able to leave our bags at reception on checkout day for safe keeping. In the quiet end of the city nearby the Victoria Square tram stop and one block away from Central Market and a major supermarket. Don't be put off by the construction around the building. I would definitely recommend this place.
