I have to start by saying I am a fan of the Art Series hotels and have stayed at all the Melbourne properties. It is only because of the usually exceptional standards that I have marked the Cullen down. Maybe because it is the oldest of the properties, it is slipping a little.... The look of the property is sleek... More

I have stayed at The Cullen three times this year, and each time have been nothing but a delight. The staff are always friendly and willing to help your stay be relaxing. The rooms are clean, well sized and that bed! It's perfect! I could lay in it all day long! This time I upgraded to one of the Street... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Cullen. This funky hotel is located in the perfect spot. The bed was outstanding I wanted to take it home with me. Had the best nights sleep. Reception staff were awesome and very welcoming. The only let down was the bad quality toilet paper

I have stayed at this Hotel on two occasions and both have been very good. The rooms are spacious, clean and beds super comfortable. The kitchen area is equipped with everything you might need if you wanted to stay in and cook the odd meal. We went out to the local restaurants, which were all walking distance and enjoyed the...

We have just spent 5 nights at this delightful hotel. We were here to visit son in hospital, and requested comfortable room. This is a vibrant hotel right in the heart of everything, trams buses trains. You can even hire a bike or smart car whilst here. The art is vibrant and although not my taste enjoyed the bright colours.... More

I live in Melbourne but chose to stay here on a Saturday night instead of paying for cab fares to Prahran back for a big party. What a great idea! This hotel is super cool, conveniently located in the gay friendly busy and colourful Commercial Road/Chapel Street vicinity. Room was immaculate, colourfully decorated, food fabulous and all the staff ever... More

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
