We absolutely loved the hotel, the design and the room. We don't have a bad word to say about it. We tried breakfast in the restaurant downstairs and that was really worth trying. Location is great as the 72 tram stops just outside so straight to Flinder Street Station or walk 2 mins down the road and you get Chapel... More

Our two day conference was made easy with the help of the excellent team at The Cullen Hotel. They looked after all of the details and pre-empted our needs.

We find this hotel is in a great location, the staff are very helpful and friendly plus the rooms clean and comfortable and has a trendy vibe. For us it is close to most things we want to do in Melbourne. The Prahan Markets are over the road and trendy Greville Street is within walking distance.

Stayed here for a weekend after a business trip in CBD. The hotel was exactly what we like - boutique size, super decor,friendly service and a great area to explore on foot. The markets across the road are great,and the tram to town leaves from just outside. Highly recommended.

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.

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.
