Our stay at the Brooklyn Arts Motel was one of the highlights of our girls' trip to Victoria. The house is an old two-story building on the south end of Fitzroy, with the hip streets and restaurants starting just around the corner. It is filled with the loveliest of curios, old furniture, ceiling moldings, paintings, and wall colours, so you're... More

I visited this private hotel when a couple I know were staying. It was a surprise for me as I hadn't known about it. Its location near both Fitzroy and Collingwood is excellent if you plan to walk to venues in those suburbs, and in appearance it's quirky, arty, etc, as the previous reviews report. As I'm all for difference... More

The Brooklyn Arts Hotel was simply fabulous. Room was generous with private bathroom, interesting artefacts all around the place to keep the mind and body nourished. Hosts were knowledgeable and eager to help. The location was central and close to everything. Would definitely recommend staying here!

After three weeks at a string of cold, unwelcoming, high turn-over hotels, the last of which was in the center of Melbourne's CBD, I was lucky enough to stay with Maggie and the ladies of Brooklyn Arts. I would have extended my stay, but the trip was for business, so time was limited. I arrived early, and was fortunate enough... More

I would not stay anywhere else, I go to Melbourne anything up to 4 times a year. The owner Maggie Fookes and the staff are excellent, it has a wonderful position, I cannot recommend it highly enough, but hope there will always be a room for me .....

The Brooklyn Arts Hotel is my favourite place to stay in Melbourne - a home away from home. Just a few steps away from Gertrude Street with its wonderful boutique shops and eateries, its warm, charming and brimming with personality, from the décor to the proprietor Maggie and her lovely pooches, to the other guests at the breakfast table.

The Brooklyn Arts Hotel took me back in time. The little courtyard evoked a sensory experience that was rich and memorable. Upon wakening from my sleep, I felt like a child again, warm & safe. Thank you. Fiona

The wonder of this hotel continues to enchant my wife and I. Although Maggies was away her staff and her spirt looks over the place. The pictures and the rooms, the high ceilings and the generous vaguely chambolic feel to the place adds to its charm. If you don't want to stay in some plastic box then this is the... More

It's rare to find a hotel that has real character and warmth in such a good city location. This is our favourite place to stay in Melbourne for that reason... Great quality, price, atmosphere and location. The building is a beautiful old classic home, the rooms all individual and the shared bathrooms are great. We have stayed in three different... More

On a recent trip to Melbourne I found this great little boutique hotel to be a real treat. The host was charming and the location so very convenient to Melbourne and Gertrude St. You really feel like your in the middle of everything but without the noise and general chaos of big cities. Overall - excellent
