Great service , food and rooms at a reasonable price. I will be back. I thought that having a room facing commercial rd it would be noisy but I could not hear a thing. The staff were very helpful and there is handy parking below.

This was my first stay at the Cullen, I have stayed at the Blackman on numerous occasions and I would say that it is far superior than the Cullen. The room was very standard, the bathroom was a little intimidating as it is fairly see through, glad I was staying with family and not just a friend!. Biggest disappointment was... More

We stayed in a junior penthouse room, the king size bed is made up of 2 king single beds pushed together which makes it uncomfortable to lay in the middle or next to your partner. After leaving our room early the next morning leaving a 'make up our room' sign on the door we arrived back to our room to... More

My husband and I have been fortunate enough to have stayed at The Cullen twice now, the most recent time being in March this year. We were warmly welcomed at reception on arrival and we were told about how the hotel came to be as well as a bit of information about the artist whose work is displayed throughout the... More

My Daughters and I stayed here for 4 nights, my husband joined us for the last couple. A great location, great place. Very cool and quirky artwork throughout! Staff were very accommodating and friendly. My husband was very ill the day we were due to check out so I extended our check out so he didn't have to move. The... More

Love The Cullen, love the artwork, love the design of the rooms. The beds are pretty amazing too! I travel a lot and have stayed in some amazing properties however the beds at The Cullen are probably the best I've slept on in a while. They are so good, you can purchase them and the pillows - Australian made too.... More

The Art Series Hotels are a striking concept, visually supercool, with six hotels (so far) each based on an Australian artist great, the concept is almost a destination in itself. Our stay was at The Cullen, in Melbourne's inner east. The hotel is hung with the simplistic, often crude works of Archibald Prize (2000) winning artist Adam Cullen. The room... More

A very quiet room, and amazingly comfortable beds! The art work in the hotel is edgy and modern and the rooms are nice and sharply decorated. Great location in Prahran not far from the station and heaps of restaurants and bars. Some confusion on check in as they did not have roll away bed ready for my 12yo - a... More

Loved the location of The Cullen right across from the Prahran Market and very much enjoyed the stylish decor and the novelty of being surrounded by Adam Cullen art - like it or not. The well-designed kitchenette was very welcome (especially with the lovely produce just across the road at the market) and the beds were exceptionally comfortable. The best... More
