I work in visual arts, so I really enjoy staying at art-themed hotels, and I have to say that this was one of the best ever. Melbourne is a very arts-oriented city, and The Cullen has completely integrated art into their experience. One artist is featured throughout the hotel with art even in the elevator. They have maps of nearby galleries, art books in the room, and a wonderful design aesthetic. The hotel is beautifully modern and stylish. They have a tiny gym (with graffiti!), friendly front desk staff, and a great location in the Prahan neighbourhood.
Although you have to take a tram to get to the centre of the city and the museums, I would recommend this neighbourhood. There are a number of funky and reasonable restaurants, and upscale shopping a few blocks away.
Before you book, do join the free hotel membership program and you can save money on your stay. I absolutely loved our three night stay here, and would love to stay longer the next time!More
