Stayed for 3 nights for business and found the experience very satisfying. The reception was prompt and friendly and the staff was very helpful. The rooms were comfortable, quiet, stylish and well furnished. The artwork in the hotel is interesting even if not to everyone's taste. The restaurant was the only substandard aspect of the whole stay. On All three... More

I can't quite put my finger on it but there is something missing here - it could be outstanding and it just can't quite get there? I stayed for two nights late September. The location is terrific, just off Chapel Street wonderfully proximate to the areas I frequent in Melbourne both for business & pleasure. I booked the Junior Penthouse... More

This hotel is in an amazing position, perfect for shopping, eating and transport. Its across the road from the fab Prahan Markets, well worth a visit. Hotel is clean and comfortable. The rooms are a good size with plenty of room for an extra foldaway bed that we required. Only down side is the walls of the bathroom are frosted... More

I keep going back to Melbourne for business and each time the very comfortable beds draw me to the Cullen. The area is trendy with a lot of shops, restuarants and bars around! The housekeeping staff (or room team members?) were very friendly and even supplied me with extras of my fav tea lemongrass and ginger ..lovely and a more... More

Rude reception staff. Stayed in the penthouse. Was not a penthouse at all. Quite frankly the worst penthouse I have ever stayed in. Got late check out. Had people knocking on my door and ringing up the room saying I need to leave as check out is at 10. Booked it till 12.... Was over charged on my card. Never... More

Dear Underapurpl, I am very disappointed to hear that your stay with us last year was not as expected. It was also surprising to read that our team did not show you the greatest care and attention, as this is something that we take great pride in. First of all let me offer my apologies for the experience you have... More

If you like art you will love this hotel. It’s definitely a boutique hotel where the focus is style. The service is friendly but don’t expect too much. There aren’t a lot of facilities such as a lobby or balcony to tan, the gym is a bit small but eventually it’s very good to stay long term there as it... More

This property is nothing short of terrific. It's modern, attractive, trendy and the service is excellent. We stayed for 4 nights in June and enjoyed every minute. The bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. The rooms are not huge, but ours was bigger than I was expecting after reading some other reviews. We had a studio... More

I have to start by saying I am a fan of the Art Series hotels and have stayed at all the Melbourne properties. It is only because of the usually exceptional standards that I have marked the Cullen down. Maybe because it is the oldest of the properties, it is slipping a little.... The look of the property is sleek... More
