If you are going to stay in Prahran, the Cullen is a great choice. The location is great and in the heart of Prahran. I've stayed in both the studio suite, and the junior penthouse suite on separate visits. The rooms are spotless, very nicely finished, bed is very very comfy, nice amenities etc - very comfortable. Note that for... More

First time here. We chose the Cullen based on the extra room offered by the two bed open plan suite. Hotel is well positioned with the tram at your door ( if you can figure out how to get a ticket to use it) The first impression of our room is that it needs a re-paint. The door is very... More

This is a fab boutique hotel with the Australian artist Cullen's paintings/prints hung throughout the hotel. Our room was nicely designed, great layout and very comfortable. The cafe downstairs had great happy hour drinks - the staff were super friendly and welcoming. Fantastic location being near the trendy cafe/bar scenes of Commercial and Chapel st and also some of the... More

The Cullen has an fantastic contemporary feel to it. The artwork while confronting adds to the atmosphere. The studio room on the first floor was very roomy and had everything you could possibly need. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will do so again

The Cullen hotel, Commercial Rd, Prahan, is always perfect on arrival and during my stay. I have stayed here several times for work and I cannot fault it. The rooms are meticulously prepared, the room service is fast and excellent quality, and even the room bar is not a rip off. The beds and pillows are top quality too. I... More

Superbly located and with exceptional artwork, the Cullen has a great range of on site services, is modern and a little sexy in its styling, and staff are friendly and helpful. However as suggested by other reviews, there is just something missing. The food from Gramercy was lovely, the staff there were particularly attentive and friendly, and some housekeeping issues...

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
