Have just spent another week staying at The Cullen. Not only is this a stylish hotel, it has wonderful staff and is in one of the more interesting areas of Melbourne. Greatboutiques and shops, close to supermarkets and the Prahran Market is across the road making self catering really easy.

Fabulous location with everything at your doorstep. A stylish friendly hotel with a funky feel. Lots of options for relaxed to upmarket dining and shopping. Our room had two Queen sized beds, a well stocked kitchenette and everything we needed.

This small hotel has the artwork of Adam Cullen throughout. The rooms have nice comfortable beds and ours even had a little kitchen. Being directly opposite the Prahran market meant you could easily buy some wonderful food to snack on. But being so close to Chapel st with all its cafes and restaurants you don't really need to. The hotel...

In town for the Australian Open and very happy to have chosen The Cullen. Spacious room (although a tiny bathroom) with a comfy bed. Location was good, staff were very friendly and helpful. Graffiti artists and works stories throughout. Quite cool!

We stayed here for one night for the Australian Open tennis and it was wonderful - the staff were friendly, efficient and very helpful. A great room with the usual Art Series Hotel quirky and entertaining features. We usually stay at The Olsen but this was a great alternative. We will be back.

We travelled to Melbourne for the Australian Open Tennis, and for something different from our usual CBD accommodation choices, we decided on the Cullen. Well, there are many many many things to like about this hotel. As we arrived in Prahan at about 10am on a Friday, our designated room was not ready yet. While we were discussing making two...
