I stayed at this hotel near the end of a grueling 4-week business trip and found that I didn't have enough energy left to handle its quirkiness well. This included having no one to greet me and show me my room, a bathroom on a different floor, no table or desk in my room that I could sit at, the... More

I think it takes a certain kind of person to appreciate the Brooklyn Arts, a truly bohemian hotel in Fitroy, the arts district of Melbourne. Although I’m sure others enjoyed their experience, especially those noted on this site. It was just not our cup of tea. From non-working bathrooms to no clean towels it was like paying to stay at...

I am an art consultant and I travel often for work. Location, warmth and comfort is important to me as well as great art, coffee shops and eateries. Brooklyn Arts Hotel has all of the above and is in the perfect location to Gertrude Street and Smith Street. Maggie is fabulous and I loved the opulence of the dining room.... More

The Brooklyn Arts Hotel is one of the more unusual places we have stayed. It has more in common with a homestay than a traditional B&B (or indeed the 'hotel' in its name). Its quirky nature takes some getting used to, but if you want to be within very easy walking distance of the bohemian heart of Melbourne (Fitzroy) for... More

A delightful introduction to Australia. It was more like being at home rather then in an hotel, and Maggie was a wonderful hostess without being intrusive. We were made very welcome right from the start. The breakfast was do-it-yourself style and an amazing selection of teas and jams was provided. Our fellow guests were all delightful and friendly and interesting.... More

I loved this place with its gracious architecture, antique filled rooms, friendly service, and Maggie, the most relaxed and convivial owner that I have met anywhere in a hotel. My huge room had an additional balcony room with a desk, and a sparklingly fresh bathroom all in white tiles. The big breakfast table downstairs seems to be open all hours... More

On the positive side, it's a great location in Fitzroy, rooms are clean, the house architecturally is beautiful, it's a very relaxed atmosphere, rooms were very large and the hostess was wonderful. On the negative side I found that the noise from the corridor and bathroom was coming into the room and every night I stayed I was woken in... More

The Brooklyn Arts hotel I found by accident. I usually stay in business hotels so this was very different. The house dates from 1860 and the rooms are cavernous, filled with lovely antique things, rather romantic. The most important things to me wherever I stay are cleanliness and quiet, I wasn’t disappointed. Breakfast was served when I felt like it... More
