I'm a childrens's book author and illustrator who visits Gorgeous Town (Melbourne) once a year for a week of school visits and book tours. I couldn't imagine finding a more comfortable and arty nest than The Brooklyn Arts. I usually stay in one of the very quiet back rooms which open onto the rear gardens ~ perfect after a day in noisy schools! Maggie is the perfect host, making sure her guests ~ often the most interesting characters ~ have the opportunity to get to know each other. Over the last couple of visits, Maggie (and her pooches) have become dear friends ~ in years of travel I have never found a place quite like this one. The showers are hot, the book shelves are groaning with great books, and George Street is close to everything, from yoga studios to pubs. Love it!
- 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
