Love this boutique hotel which is friendly and comfortable. Front desk couldn't have done more. Beds were a dream. Location very close to public transport and shops. I'll be back as soon as I can. Great stay!

The location and hotel staff were really great. Everyone was friendly, knowledgeable, and nice. Restaurants of all sorts are nearby. To the city is only 5 to10 minutes by car. Room deco is fantastic. Many thanks to Nayton or Nathan ( not of spelling ) and the one who gave my son a paint set.

Having stayed here a few times now, the staff are always super friendly and helpful, and the rooms are amazing. The only suggestion I'd make to The Cullen is to have an option when booking to request a carpark spot for your stay. When we arrived we were told that the carpark was full. We parked along the street, and...

This was a nice place to stay. In the heart of Prahan and across the road from an excellent fresh food market, this art series hotel gave a good vibe for a happy Occassion to visit Melbourne. In town for a graduation, we were on a high and the room with its amazing art and stories to match did not...

We stayed at this hotel for the weekend. It is excellent value. Great location close to restaurants and shops but still not noisy. The Pathan Food market is just across the road too. I think the room cleaning daily could be a bit more thorough.

Had a great weekend stay at the Cullen. Rooms are well appointed with more than you need. Not huge but the beds are very good. The location is great if you want markets, cafes and lots of variety. Not cheap however worth the expense.

Had a quick overnight stay in Melbourne for business and was surprised when the travel agent booked The Cullen. Upon arrival i was greeted by the most friendly staff who were quick to identify themselves by name.

This is a great place to stay when visiting Melbourne. The Cullen is located opposite Prahran Market, and a short walk to shops, bars, cafes and restaurants on Chapel Street and nearby Toorak. There's a tram stop around the corner and you are in the city in 10-12 mins. If it's windy... the tram stop catches a breeze and there's...
