I loved staying in this area of Melbourne. Great shopping and lots of bars and restaurants to choose from. The staff at the Cullen were fantastic! Comfy beds and spacious rooms. Not so sure about the frosted glass as a bathroom wall... but this seems to be the 'in thing' with most new hotels so I will have to get...

I really like this hotel. The location is great and so are the staff and I really want to say it's perfect... But... For me checking out always ruins the stay.

Beautifully decked out with a selection of art for one of Australia's more interesting contemporary artists, the Cullen is a must. Located in a hip part of Melbourne it has plenty of local bars and restaurants as well as being a short tram rode from the city. I would recommend the Cullen.

Everything about this place should make you go "Wow. This is great. " but I found the art theme and it's presentation a bit soulless and try hard.
