Another visit to Melbourne on business for me and the only place to stay is the Cullen. The reception staff went the extra mile and even provided a softer chair for use at the desk in the room as I was spending far too much time on the PC! You need to go to Prahran market just for the experience...

Location was superb, staff extremely helpful and welcoming and the room was extremely clean as well as the bed being one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on( and the pillows). Would definitely return and also consider bringing my children. The car hire is extremely reasonable as well ( but really only for two adults max)

This is possibly the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Certainly the most comfortable bed, linen and pillows I have encountered. I love the art in the rooms and the unique vibe the hotel offers. It's like sleeping in an art gallery. Perfect location in central Prahran with many Melbourne features at your doorstep. The staff were very helpful...

This is a cool, relaxed hotel in an interesting Melbourne neighbourhood. Its personality comes from Adam Cullen's artwork (predominantly images from the world of The Kelly Gang) and the architecture of the building. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the pavement bar and restaurant complete the easy-going ensemble.

After reading a couple of reviews I was a bit anxious about staying at the cullen - but it was exceptional! We stayed in a junior penthouse and the room was spacious and open with a HUGE balcony (and BBQ!)

Had a great stay, couldn't fault the place, friendly staff and great rooms, not to mention the cool art everywhere you looked. The beds are so comfy and the place so relaxed. Loved getting up early and walking the markets just accross the road and grabing that morning coffee. We will be back for sure
