This is possibly the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Certainly the most comfortable bed, linen and pillows I have encountered. I love the art in the rooms and the unique vibe the hotel offers. It's like sleeping in an art gallery. Perfect location in central Prahran with many Melbourne features at your doorstep. The staff were very helpful... More

This is a cool, relaxed hotel in an interesting Melbourne neighbourhood. Its personality comes from Adam Cullen's artwork (predominantly images from the world of The Kelly Gang) and the architecture of the building. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the pavement bar and restaurant complete the easy-going ensemble.

The reception staff at check in were welcoming and ensured that we knew the area well (and if we didn't,... More

Had a great stay, couldn't fault the place, friendly staff and great rooms, not to mention the cool art everywhere you looked. The beds are so comfy and the place so relaxed. Loved getting up early and walking the markets just accross the road and grabing that morning coffee. We will be back for sure

Love this hotel! Contemporary, had a cool and edgy vibe and felt extremely comfortable. Service was excellent, rooms were large with high quality furnishings, bedding and toiletries. Perfect for a weekend away if your purpose is to explore Melbourne's coffee, galleries and fashion - your stay at the Cullen will definitely add to the atmosphere. It's a bit out from... More

This was my 6th or 7th stay at The Cullen, I love staying here, it's a trendy hotel, in a great location with fantastic rooms, brilliant art work and friendly staff.

Our family of three stayed at this funky hotel for two nights. The room layout was great; two king beds, a table with 4 chairs, single lounging chair and a kitchenette which included a microwave, sink and basic cooking and serving items. The compact bathroom was of the "glass box" variety, which seems to be in vogue at the moment,... More
