Franklin Central Apartments

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stay here for 5 nights in May in a 3 bedroom apartment, spacious unit, nicely decorated, full kitchenette , 2 bathrooms, washing machine with dryer. Within 5 minutes walk , you are at Adelaide Central Market and China Town , a further 10 minute walk will take you Rundle Mall , all the restaurants are nearby , make it a perfect choice of stay in Adelaide CBD. But all the plus points have been overtaken by the most important aspect , a quite rest. There is a construction ongoing exactly opposite of the apartment and they carried the work 24 hours and the worst part is I was awaken by the loud noise as early as 6am . Tried to complaint to the front desk and the response I got , they are allowed to carry some kind of work and" what kind of sound" that affected you ??? Sounds weird to me to get this response from the front desk. I do not care "what kind of sound" but its was certainly loud enough to wake me up. The front desk staff should be more professional in handling issue like this and highlighted the problem to the relevant authority . This is a great apartment to stay but if this problem was left unsolved , if will jeopardize the rating of this apartment.

Location wise I don't think, there could be any place better than this apartment to stay in Adelaide, be it tourist purpose or business. Most of the important places/ landmarks are in walking range. Very spacious place, bit old ambiance, but neat and clean premises with plenty of towels. The staff is very friendly. especially Ms Aman on reception, who had been very kind, pleasant, welcoming and helpful in accommodating our late check out request and keeping our luggage for safe custody, as we had 4 hours to spend in the city before proceeding to airport.

A big thank you to the very helpful staff at Franklin Street Apartments. We had a great birthday celebration weekend. A nice surprise when we were upgraded to a 3 bedroom (so no one had to use the sofa bed!). Apart from needing a new oven (the writing of the dials was worn off) everything was great. Very clean bathrooms.

Great location near the Adelaide Central Market. The Franklin Apartments are quite spacious and clean and the reception very helpful. The cafe on the ground floor was a bonus. Highly recommended. Going back again in August!

Amazing apartments for a family vacation. Fully equipped kitchen to cook a feast for the whole family. Spotlessly clean. Wonderful service from walking through the front to the housekeepers cleaning your apartment. Great location too

Would recommend to anyone coming to Adelaide! Amazing location, friendly staff and spotless & specious rooms. Very quick walk to many resturants and close to the central markets. Perfect for long or shorts stays. 10/10

A very good apartment hotel, central to everything in the city and quiet at night. Great service and the room had everything we needed. Very helpful reception staff and we enjoyed our stay. Would stay at this apartment again if we return to Adelaide.

I stay at the Franklin Apartments on a regular basis for work and have always found them to be comfortable and clean with all the amenities needed to cook your own meal. Staff have always been friendly and happy to help. The apartments are within walking distance of all major CBD attractions etc.

Perfect location and friendly staff! It’s close to everywhere we planned to go. The wonderful receptionist ( sorry that I don’t know how to spell her name correctly, Aman*#% sorry~ ) made our stay and extension so easy and smooth. A place worth staying!

Franklin was central, perfect for on foot travellers. Much larger than we supposed, extra bonus with full kitchen and washing machine. This meant we could relax at night after walking all day. Beautifully serviced every day, concierge helpful and knowledgeable.
