I think the art series hotels are like a breath of fresh air. It is great to see something quirkier and different from the standard fare you get at top end hotels. The Cullen is located opposite the Prahran markets and on the Tram 72 line to the CBD. Great rooms, good decor, quirky signage and a great restaurant to... More

I hadn't been to Melbourne for some time and friends recommended The Cullen located in Prahran. We loved it, quirky, fun rooms, wild art, the restaurant downstairs always served great food with friendly service. You walk right across the road to Prahran markets and you are only a stroll away from great shopping or a trip to St Kilda. It... More

Great vibe as soon as you walk in with the Adam Cullen artwork and the enthusiastic and welcoming staff. Rooms are decorated in an uncluttered but comfortable style, with witty artwork to keep you interested. Art books invite you to sit and read and just contemplate the world for a while. Very comfortable bedding and all you can need in... More

This hotel is in a fabulous location, just off Chapel St. Across the road from Prahran Markets, around the corner from a 24 hour supermarket and walking distance to an abundance of cafes, restaurants and shops. The staff were all delightful and very helpful. The room was a good size with a very comfortable king bed, couch and table and... More

I stayed at the Cullen for one night after an unsuccessful Air BnB adventure. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The room was a good size and well equipped. I enjoyed the decor and especially the unique art work. The bathroom overall quite small but not an issue - shower itself walk in and quite large. Really good onsite restaurant.... More

Our room, the Deluxe Suite Twin, was spacious, airy and beautifully decorated. We weren't keen on the glass-walled bathroom but worked around it! The staff were helpful and friendly. The beds were incredibly comfortable. The central location meant we could wander out for quick trips to shops, market or restaurants and then head back to our warm and comfortable room.... More

The location is brilliant and in the middle of Melbourne's trendiest locales. The hotel is very funky. The staff are very nice and helpful. The room is fantastic; modern, funky, very comfortable bed and soft sheets, small kitchenette and a well equipped bathroom. If you don't have to be in CBD, this is the place to stay

Dear 'HRifai', Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We couldn't agree more our location is in one of Melbourne's trendiest suburbs. I hope you got the chance to explore all the fabulous restaurants down in Windsor. Being outside of the CDB gives you the chance to explore Melbourne like a local. However by hiring one of our Cullen... More
