We loved staying here, it is quirky, clean, warm and friendly hosts who give guests space and privacy. It is a real gem with a uniqueness that is really special. It is a fantastic part of Melbourne within a walk to CBD. Great breakfast from a local bakery and the people that we met staying at the hotel were after... More

We stayed here for a couples weekend away, and had the best room (the green room). The location is fantastic, and the owner is very friendly, however we didn't enjoy our stay. We had two main issues - the first was value for money. At $225 a night it doesn't measure up. The room is large and the bed very... More

This hotel was charming and had lovely facilities. The room (we were in a twin room) was large and the beds wonderfully comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was a good way to start the day and everyone we met was very nice. The bathrooms were always clean. It was a quiet place to stay and Maggie was a lovely hostess. It...

Did a two day trip from Tassie to Melbourne last week. Decided to walk on the the wild side with an accommodation choice, since it is my little break this time. ( Usually, it is work thing and I check in to some sort of 3 star-hotel in the CBD ). Turned out to be quite pleasant. The hotel has... More

I stayed a Brooklyn for a long weekend and had such a peaceful, happy time there. I feel very lucky to have discovered this absolute gem in a wonderful part of Fitzroy. I didn't know the area well at the beginning but owner Maggie was so generous with her time and shared lots of local knowledge and great tips. Brooklyn... More

Brooklyn Arts is said not to be for everyone. I don't believe it. If you hate people, animals, and plants, maybe. Otherwise, what a place! Welcoming, efficient, helpful, quiet, artistic, unique. The building dates from 1865, but everything works, and works well. The bathrooms are new and spotless. The rooms are charming and spotless. Each is different (even the walls... More

Brooklyn arts is a wonderful place to stay in Melbourne. It's an arty, unconventional and wonderful bed and breakfast. Located in a beautiful victorian villa, the hotel is right in the trendy Fitzroy district, with hundreds of great bars, restaurants and shops. The rooms are all beautiful and all different. The best thing is the atmosphere of this hotel and... More

I stayed here in February 2010 and found it lived up to my expectations. If you with an open mind and a warm heart you will love this place. The building itself is wonderful and it is furnished and decorated in a very pleasant and idiosyncratic style. I had the biggest room with a piano and ensuite. I could only... More

The website tagline "one of those places you'll be glad you found" couldn't be more appropriate in expressing my absolute delight in having stayed at the Brooklyn Arts Hotel. Situated at the peak of the heart of Fitzroy, the CBD, Fitzroy/ Collingwood/ Carlton- cultural stepping stones of Melbourne, were all within walking distance. Gertrude street is not even a minutes...

We stayed at the Brooklyn for 11 days - about 6 more than we had originally planned. Our arrival at the Brooklyn was completely smooth and Maggie, the hostess, went truly above and beyond to look after us during our stay. I also found it to be nice and quiet in both the rooms we ended up staying in -... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Brooklyn is a perfect place to stay if you are not looking for a standard hotel room. It is beautiful, friendly, quiet, interesting, quirky and personal, within walking distance of central Melbourne. The atmosphere is relaxed and congenial. There is a garden to sit in and birds to listen to.Brooklyn is a big old house on the city edge of Fitzroy. You can walk through parks or take a tram a few minutes from the door, to city venues, stations and airport connections. Fitzroy’s great mix of people makes this one of the most interesting parts of Melbourne to hang out in. ... more   less
