I have now stayed at all 3 art series properties (The Cullen, The Blackman & The Olsen), and I have got too say they are just the most impressive bunch of boutique hotels out there! The rooms are trendy, the mattress is the best, and of course the kitchenette is always handy. From all three properties, I have to say... More

The Cullen at Prahran is comfortable, convenient and has friendly efficient staff but no free wifi in rooms or even the lobby. The cost to use wifi at The Cullen is not excessive but there should be NO cost when the room tariff is by no means cheap. Travellers from overseas need wifi for communication and work and it is...

Studio suite was fairly good size, well-equipped and clean. Bed and sofa are very comfortable and furniture are stylish. Some paintings indeed are a bit scary but not a problem to me, I think they are all funky and have a theme. Staff are friendly too.

The hotel is in a great neighbourhood close to all the shops and cafes in Prahan and South Yarra The hotel is funky and interesting without being pretentious. The room was spacious and really well set out. You can tell this is not an everyday hotel as every detail has been thought through. We did not eat at the restaurant... More

The best hotel we have ever stayed in. The beds, the pillows, the Art.. So much, so little time.. But we will be back every time we need a bed in Melbourne. Planning my ensuite to be just like your bathrooms.. See you again soon

Stayed in a suite with the missus for 3 days. Great staff and rooms are well designed... with the exception of the bathrooms. Now i love the missus, but I am quite happy going through the bulk of my life without needing to see or hear her on the toilet. The Cullen wasn't a good choice in accommodating this need... More

Great hotel in excellent location. We stayed here aftet stop off from Tasmania. Handy to Port. Very funky rooms of good size. Only let down was cleanliness. Lots of dust on the mirrors and toenails on the pedestal of the table. Very off putting.

123Brett, Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay at The Cullen. My sincerest apologies for the cleanliness of the room, this is not the impression we want to leave on our guests. I have spoken with our executive housekeeper about this and we will ensure more attention to dust is paid when servicing rooms. Thank you again for... More

We normally stay at the Rialto Intercontinental in the city but wanted to try something different. The location was great, loads of shops, cafe's and restaurants at the doorstep and also close to 2 of the main gyms (Goodlife and Fitness First). The cafe/bar at the hotel was quite good too for cheap drinks or coffee. We had a small... More

Hi Linda, Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us overall. Our beds are most certainly one of the main reasons people get a great nights sleep when they stay (you can also purchase them either from the hotel or the art series website). While our bathrooms may not be to everyone's tastes I'm glad you enjoyed the... More

Staff most welcoming - suite just perfect & big beds SO comfy. Love the location, around corner from all that Chapel Street offers + trams. Couldn't get enough Dumplings. Restaurant downstairs great menu - just missed TV for watching Aust Open Tennis whilst enjoying drinks & tapas.
