Fantastic location and would highly recommend this modern hotel. Walk straight across the road to the Prahan market, or walk down 100m to chapel street. Bars, restaurants and the last goes on and on. If it's clothing you want to shop for, again this area gas if all and the Cullan hotel is just perfect for all this.

Nice and central to all the happenings near Chapel St. Very comfy King bed, clean and tidy. Booked a quieter room away from the elevators, but could still hear the shower and TV next door, but this is just a downside of any hotel I guess. Watch the Art Series website and Trip Adviser for specials and you might just... More

The Cullen is a gem of a place. Colourful, edgy and sometimes naughty paintings and prints adorn its walls and the staff are very friendly, helpful and happy. The gym is excellent with 3 screens to watch while you huff and puff and the downstairs restaurant with its daily wet hours b/w 4 and 7pm is a great way to... More

Though The Cullen is definitely not a true 5 star hotel in the traditional sense international travellers may be accustomed to, it offers a different type of hotel experience in a part of Melbourne that gives real insight into and taste of local Melbourne lifestyle. Being opposite Prahan market and next to Chapel street, if you love good food and... More

Was here for the F1 race, it is close to the track, and to a host of lovely restaurants in the area. First room I was given was small, and close to the lifts, I was never going to sleep, so they kindly changed it for a larger one on a higher floor. Staff are lovely and try to help... More

Loved the hotel art work throughout the building and including the rooms. The staff were very friendly and willing to offer assistance when asked. The rooms were very clean and presented in a manner that I would expect. the Gramacy restraunt attached to the hotel also continues the experience with friendly staff and great food. We had items off the... More

From the moment the charming young man checked us in, we knew we'd booked the right hotel. We travel to Melbourne frequently and usually we stay in the city but from now on we will stay here. In fact, we've already booked a room for this Christmas. Our room on the third floor, overlooking Commercial Rd and the Prahran Market... More

We have stayed a few times at the Cullen and absolutely love it. Ticks all the boxes as a fantastic boutique hotel and room rates are competitive. The hotel is decorated with artworks from Adam Cullen surrounding the hotel and in the rooms. There is a fun designer feel to the hotel as well as all the perks of a... More

Excellent, funky place to stay right in the heart of Prahran. I highly recommend this location for its easy access to Chapel Street and the surrounding bars and restaurants. The hotel is very well appointed, has super comfortable rooms and the staff are always friendly and helpful.
