Property condition


  • Liked: Staff & service
  • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

The Franklin was a cool concept, but the room was very small and dirty given the price. When we got into the room a few bugs were crawling around, we stayed one night and saw many more. The bed sheets had black stains all over them. The Franklin charges as much as most nicer hotels in the area so we thought we were in for a nice stay at a boutique hotel but overall we were disappointed with the value and cleanliness and would not recommend staying here.

Nice stay

Overall, a great place to stay in Adelaide. Old building with lots of character and cute restaurant downstairs. Easy to walk to just about anything in Adelaide! Nice size room with plenty of space.
