This is the third time I have visited Maggie's beautiful Fitzroy dwelling, each time with some girlfriends and we love it here, a true home away from home, and always someone interesting to talk to at the breakfast table. Here are some things I love about this small hotel and some reasons to stay here: stay here if you love... More

Loved my stay with my best friend in Melbourne. I was so thrilled that she found this place as opposed to the rather sterile place we'd reserved. This was a joy. We were welcomed warmly and shown to our comfy, beautifully designed twin room. Lovely, functional and easy to keep clean wet room right next door (we knew we'd have... More

We stayed in the Green Room for two nights after being upgraded from the Blue Room at no extra charge! Maggie was very lovely and accomodating, always willing to help us and wasn't upset at all when we misplaced our key. We were welcomed amazingly by a member of staff and the place as a whole was very cosy. Reasonably... More

Brooklyn Arts Hotel is EXACTLY as described on its website, so if that is what you're looking for, that is what you will indeed get. It's relaxed, comfortable, interesting and beautiful. The back garden is a joy. The big dining room table welcomes you at any time of day for a tea, a coffee, a piece of fruit or a... More

What a find - friends of mine recommended the place and, when it was full, the charming owner Maggie re-arranged her study (the Hotel is a reconverted old mansion) into a single bed hotel room for me. I was even upgraded to a queen room the first night of my visit following a cancellation. The bathrooms - including the share... More

I'd have to agree with other reviewers on this site, the Brooklyn Arts is a gorgeous place to stay but it is let down by some basic maintenance issues. We are 'arty' types and we love anything with character and eclectic taste, however this place is in serious need of some TLC. There's just no excuse for having 4cm gaps... More

Brooklyn Arts Hotel is brilliantly situated in funky Fitzroy with an amazing array of great restaurants, local designer boutiques and fascinating curiosities on the doorstep. I have now stayed there three times and hope to stay there many more! Having stayed in both the Blue and Green Rooms, I was delighted with the unusual eclectic mix of furniture, the bookcases...

I'm a childrens's book author and illustrator who visits Gorgeous Town (Melbourne) once a year for a week of school visits and book tours. I couldn't imagine finding a more comfortable and arty nest than The Brooklyn Arts. I usually stay in one of the very quiet back rooms which open onto the rear gardens ~ perfect after a day... More

The location was great, the area is full of cafes and is a short stroll into the heart of Melbourne. But my husband and I were very disappointed with the Brooklyn Arts Hotel itself. We were not expecting a sterile, standard hotel experience, but we did expect to find a hotel that was at least clean and showed some level... More

maggiefooke, Owner at Brooklyn Arts Hotel, responded to this review

This is indeed a very bad review. There are several issues here that you have raised in relation to the communal living space that we are looking into immediately. Much of Brooklyn is old and second hand, including the building itself. We deliberately cultivate the three R’s of sustainability; Refuse, Recycle and Re-use. After nearly five years at Brooklyn, I’m... More
