Reviewed June 15, 2012

Franklin Central Apartments was a great choice for our first visit to Adelaide. Reservation was simple and I advised we would be arrivng early on the train from Perth. It was explained that if the room was ready we could book in on arrival otherwise our luggage could be stored. We were pleasantly surprised to find our room available when we arrived about 8.00am. Without exception the staff were friendly and helpful, our one bedroom apartment was modern, spacious, spotless and very well equipped. Towels and bedlinen were both excellent quality. It is necessary to book car parking ahead of time and we were pleased to find the parking was located directly beneath the building with direct access by lift - brilliant on a cold, wet day. Shops, supermarket and Central Markets as well as major city atttractions are all within walking distance, with the tram about 2 minutes walk. Trains and buses were easily accessible. Highly reccommended and we would definitely choose to stay again.

Good size apartment, great location the only negative would be the kitchen appliances. The dishwasher & oven/stovetop didn't work very well they needed replacing. I travel a lot for business and the receptionist Ameila was the best I have ever have come across. She was friendly, warm and extremely helpful on check in and during my stay. Nothing was to much trouble, I would definitely stay here again.

I enjoy staying at the Franklin the rooms are spacious clean and have great facilities for home cooking. The only things missing are a Gym Pool and the cafe is rarely open. The lift is very slow to the point of painful but overall I rate it as a solid place for a medium term visit. Location is great close to market and walking to Mall or Gouger Street for dinner.

So close to perfect but just few minor points which reduces its score.

We stayed 4 nights at the Franklin Apartments. The staff were friendly & helpful. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment which certainly made for a lovely roomy stay. Our apartment was quiet, clean with a spacious kitchen. Central Markets [a must see], Coles, Tram Stop [which we took out to Glenelg for lunch] all close by. Gourger Street & China Town also handy for dining & Rundle Mall a 10 minute walk. Had a day tour with Taste of the Barossa which enabled us to see more of the surrounding areas. I would recommend Franklin Apartments

We travelled to Adelaide for a long weekend and stayed here. The apartments were clean, well maintained and equiped and spacious. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The apartments are in a central location near public transport and Central markets. Within walking distance of city centre. There is a convenience store around the corner which we only found on our last day and this should be highlighted to guests. The cafe downstairs serves great breakfasts and a couple of local restaurants deliver. We loved the Malay /Thai one. Parking is available on site but we used taxis which could be ordered via reception.
