The Art Series Hotels have to be amongst the best in Australia. They represent great value for money, are always immaculately clean and the staff are helpful and knowledgeable. The Cullen is no exception - fun, funky, quiet and oh so comfortable beds!!! For this reason booking I am a frequent customer at their hotels.

Very cool hotel full of wonderfully weird art. Friendly staff, solid location, breakfast at the hotel restaurant was good. Overall happy with the hotel. The room was spacious, clean, & modern. The gym was pretty small but got the job done with free weights & cardio equipment. I'd stay here again

This was my second stay at The Cullen and it won't be my last. It is a quirky hotel and I do like the artwork, but most importantly for me it is comfortable: cosy bed, soft squishy pillows, good shower...Reception staff were very friendly and efficient. Many thanks.

I have stayed at The Cullen many times over the last few years, and have enjoyed every experience. The rooms have a cool vibe about them, with Adam Cullen artwork, and this even extends to the glass wall that separates the bedroom space from the bathroom. The furniture is modern and stylish, and all expected amenities are provided. The room... More

The Cullen Art Hotel is funky, friendly, young, but we are old and were accepted happily. Amenities are fabulous. Excellent friendly staff with interesting food available when you want it like good coffee at 6:30 am. A Chinese dumpling place not connected to the Cullen was disappointing but the brilliant Prahan market is over the road. A good hairdresser tends... More

When you're in the art capital of Australia, you want to immerse yourself in contemporary Australian works and the Cullen has every inch of wall space covered in Adam's art. It's weird and crazy and not to everyone's tastes but certainly gives the place a vibe. The rooms are good, very strange little kitchenette in our room. Great little bits... More

We had a few meetings to attend in the area at Prahran and the CBD so this was a really good location. Room was generous in size with two queen beds. Only slept in one and it was very comfortable with good fluffy pillows. Glass wall bathroom in the middle of the room isn't to everyone's liking. Breakfast at the... More

Stayed for the weekend to visit Degas exhibition. Fantastic service, great bed, excellent facilities. Always ask for the same room location and they always deliver. This was my 20th stay in past 5 years. Love this hotel, yet again it delivers a consistently great experience.
