A very brief stay for business, arriving late one evening and departing pre-breakfast the next...but the room once again did the Art Series Hotel chain justice - very cool artwork. Having stayed previoulsy at The Olsen several times, The Cullen makes the choice of where to stay next time in South Melbourne just that little bit harder...

This was my first stay at the Cullen. The brilliance of the artwork and the matching boldness of the design give a stimulating distinctiveness to the surroundings and each day feels exciting! Add to this one of the best beds I've ever slept on! My only disappointment was that the overhead bathroom lighting was not well placed to enable a...

The room was excellent, good beds, good bathroom. Loved that we could actually open a window. Directly across from Prahan market and near lots of restaurants. Staff were excellent, cheerful and capable.

The hotel is in an excellent suburban location opposite Prahran market and around the corner from Chapel St shopping and restaurant district. The hotel itself is modern with funky art work showcased throughout although not all of it was to my taste. I had a room on the top floor which was quite spacious with a small kitchenette and comfy...

My husband and I stayed in a balcony room for 2 nights. Hotel staff were lovely, room was comfortable and clean. Bathroom facilities were good but we were not fans of the glass wall enclosure. Location of hotel is very convenient. Walking distance to Chapel St shopping, and at night there is a huge selection of bars to go to...

Interesting Concept with Contemporary Art in the room. This particular Studio had cooking facility, dishwasher and fridge. Very comfortable bed. Very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful regarding where to shop, dining options and transportation. I would certainly recommend a stay at this hotel.

We stayed at the Cullen for 3 nights over Easter and were pleasantly surprised with every aspect of the hotel. The staff were super helpful and friendly, provided us options for our room when we checked in. Everything about the hotel is warm and welcoming, even down to the 'change my room' signs and the lovely cleaning staff. This is...

We stayed here to be close to the restaurants and nightlife in South Yarra (Chapel Street), and the location was great. The hotel itself was also excellent - the room we had included a kitchenette, which was handy, and we were able to book a balcony room (some rooms have balconies, some do not), and as a bonus, this particular...

Stayed overnight in a Cullen Suite, which is a 2 bed studio. Concept of the room is great, privacy but open planned at the same time. Wonderful art everywhere and wonderful staff. Unfortunately if your a stickler for attention to detail like me, you notice the cobwebs. You notice a T.V. doesn't work and that one of the soap containers...

“The lights in the bathroom are on separate switches, one just outside the bathroom and one connected to the main ceiling lights in the apartment. It's easy to think one is not working. ”
