We stayed here so we could attend a wedding and walk back after the reception. We found it charming and loved our stay : the rooms are quirky and individual , the neighbouring streets have great food and interesting shops This is more of a home than a hotel, for those who dont want a generic hotel experience

Cosy, Comfortable, Clean, Quiet and Quirky. This is not your average "same same" hotel but we loved it. We stayed in the green room with en-suite which was nicely decorated and much more spacious than your average hotel. We also enjoyed the cosy ambience of the breakfast room.

You have to be a lover of the eccentric to enjoy this very special hotel but equally you have to like the idea of sharing and communicating with strangers who may easily become acquaintances. There is a gentleness and old worldliness about the place - oddly juxtaposed pictures, no TV to be seen, enveloping deep armchairs and Balinese textiles mixed... More

I stayed at this hotel with my partner on a spontaneous weekend trip to Melbourne. The atmosphere of the hotel is awesome. Every room has a different decor. As I only made a booking 1 week prior to my stay, the only room available was the downstairs double. The room was nicely appointed with artwork and a nice fireplace. The... More

Brooklyn Arts Hotel is an absolute breath of fresh air! It's quirky, eclectic decor, fabulously interesting guests & warm welcome offers something unique and utterly different from anything else I've found. We stayed for 5 nights in the stunning green room and loved every minute. We are already planning our next stay!

Not wanting to drive home after a big work function I found this place online and chose it more for the locale than anything else. Little did I know that I was in for quite the treat in accommodation experiences.. Firstly, I booked it all through an email - not through any other third party site. The email response that...

This hotel and a northern west coast America feel - eclectic, bohemian and interesting with varied guests - most of whom clearly keep coming back or are long-termers. Very easy to relax here as we could come and go and use the facilities at any time of the day and night. The hotel is in a perfect location for easy... More

I loved staying here in this unique, special, private, leafy, welcoming place. It is peaceful and the bed comfortable, the bathroom (shared by other bedrooms on the ground floor) clean and functional. Encounters with staff and other residents, including while having breakfast in the dining room, were warm, pleasant and interesting. The furnishings and art works combine to make a... More

This is a charming, eclectic, European style pension. The rooms have a tremendous amount of character and charm. We thought it was delightful and extremely well located. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms spotless. We spent one night in the downstairs front pink room and got a private bath just down the hall, and then spent three nights in... More

Found this place after searching online for a while. Bit of a hidden gem. Brilliant location on George Street Fitzroy just off Gertrude Street. Very friendly and low-fi vibe. It's eclectic, charming and easy. We stayed in a twin room with shared bathroom . The bathroom was next door. It's a short covered walk outside so ok in the summer... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Brooklyn is a perfect place to stay if you are not looking for a standard hotel room. It is beautiful, friendly, quiet, interesting, quirky and personal, within walking distance of central Melbourne. The atmosphere is relaxed and congenial. There is a garden to sit in and birds to listen to.Brooklyn is a big old house on the city edge of Fitzroy. You can walk through parks or take a tram a few minutes from the door, to city venues, stations and airport connections. Fitzroy’s great mix of people makes this one of the most interesting parts of Melbourne to hang out in. ... more   less
