The Cullen hotel is my number one choice and in no form of disappointment. Amazing hotel with great personality that come from the building, design, staff and the food too. It is situated in a great location, and take advantage of using the cute smart cars to get around or better yet the push bikes.

Lovely place to stay in Melbourne. I was here not long ago for a business trip. Great cafés and restaurants close by. The prahran market is also just right across. The rooms had beautiful decorations and it was very clean. The kitchen was complete with a microwave oven if needed. The only noise I could hear were the trams, apart... More

I absolutely loved my stay at The Cullen! Loved the funky rooms and decor. Only downfall was really the construction across the road causing some noise from around 7am but once that's finished there'd be no problems! Staff were also fabulous, especially Carlos at the front desk.

Love this arty hotel, been coming here frequently for years, great staff, service and location. The Art Series brand is one you can rely on for quality and comfort for 5 star facilities. My 1st choice when visiting Melbourne! Great comfy dream beds, kitchen facilities, great bars and cafes close by, I try a different one each time.

We pre booked 1 night@ $242 - no problems. Then we rang Thursday 14th, to extend to 3 nights for an additional $487. Ten minutes later we checked our bank account to find they had charged $487 twice. We rang and they promised to re credit immediately. We checked ten minutes later and they had taken a further $487 from... More

Dear Lovefromdarwin, Thank you for your review and as discussed with you in person on Tuesday I am very sorry this has occurred during your trip. An error occurred during your initial payment which caused our system to charge you twice. This should not have occurred and I am sincerely apologetic this has happened and your stay was negatively affected.... More

We have been staying at the Cullen regularly since soon after it opened, particularly when we visit family in Melbourne. We have consistently found the Cullen staff friendly and helpful, the location is convenient and the facilities are excellent. As a constructive comment, we would like to see better reading lights for the beds.

From the moment we walked in we loved the feel of this place. All the staff from the front desk to the housekeeping were friendly and helpful and put us immediately at ease.

The Cullen in Prahran is our home away from home when we are in Melbourne. We came across it a few years ago and it has become our "go to" hotel in Melbourne so we have stayed here numerous times.

Fantastic hotel. Comfortable beds and pillows. Great little extras like tea and they don't overstock the bar fridge so you can't fit your own things in there. Good on-site cafe. Well located with great market, shops. The Prahan market is across the road.We also went to a theatre improvisation show that was lots of fun.
