My husband and I visited Melbourne for 3 nights and chose to stay at The Cullen after previously staying at another Art Series Hotel (The Blackman). We were not disappointed on this occasion either. The room was lovely, with a larger bathroom then The Blackman and a fully equipped kitchenette. The rooms are spacious with enough room to comfortably move... More

There are no words. I need that bed in my life! I don't generally sleep well in hotels, but that bed!! Just amazing. The hotel met all my usual expectations for a property of this standard - friendly helpful staff etc. Only major complaint is they go offsite for room service so my coffee was almost cold by the time...

A hotel like no other!! Having stayed in almost of all of the Art Series hotels across Melbourne, The Cullen was by far my favourite!! We had the most wonderful help from the staff at the front desk after what had been a less than enjoyable morning (not because of the hotel) Upon check in we were informed that we... More

Really nice boutique hotel that is able to make you feel inspired through art. Staff very friendly and food great as well. Nice area for bars and restaurants as well. High touch in everything they do to make you feel at home. Rooms are modern and comfortable and you will feel you are in your own art gallery.

Usually a great stay with efficient friendly service however this visit spoiled by noise from ventilation system interrupting my sleep. As a regular visitor to the hotel this was disappointing. However great location easy walk or tram ride to city. Cafe offers excellent range of meals for dinner or breakfast.

Wow! From the moment of arrival, warmly greeted by the friendly & informative Cullen reception staff, I knew I was home. It only got better from here - upon walking into my beautiful & modern Cullen Suite - I was blown away. My 2 night stay was the most memorable hotel stay I can remember. Will definitely be back &...

Firstly, I stayed there for two months on business so I guess you notice things more. The concept is great, the bar is great, the food is good, the front desk staff were fine but the housekeeping was terribly inconsistent. Some weeks they would replace face towels, other weeks not, some weeks they would wipe down the kitchen area, others... More

Hi, I felt compelled to write to compliment Gaby on her service on Sat 8th August. I got in very late (early?) after a big night out at a work function. She suggested a late checkout which was available. She also typed in my WiFi password which I was struggling with. This enabled me to contact.my Sister overseas for her... More

I stayed here during my business trip to Melbourne recently. I selected this property on the advice of my colleagues due to its proximity to my office. Its located in the commercial district full of restaurants and shopping outlets. I spent my evenings shopping and eating out which was great. The property was very well maintained and the staff very... More
