We find this hotel is in a great location, the staff are very helpful and friendly plus the rooms clean and comfortable and has a trendy vibe. For us it is close to most things we want to do in Melbourne. The Prahan Markets are over the road and trendy Greville Street is within walking distance.

Stayed here for a weekend after a business trip in CBD. The hotel was exactly what we like - boutique size, super decor,friendly service and a great area to explore on foot. The markets across the road are great,and the tram to town leaves from just outside. Highly recommended.

The Cullen hotel is my number one choice and in no form of disappointment. Amazing hotel with great personality that come from the building, design, staff and the food too. It is situated in a great location, and take advantage of using the cute smart cars to get around or better yet the push bikes.

Lovely place to stay in Melbourne. I was here not long ago for a business trip. Great cafés and restaurants close by. The prahran market is also just right across. The rooms had beautiful decorations and it was very clean. The kitchen was complete with a microwave oven if needed. The only noise I could hear were the trams, apart...

I absolutely loved my stay at The Cullen! Loved the funky rooms and decor. Only downfall was really the construction across the road causing some noise from around 7am but once that's finished there'd be no problems! Staff were also fabulous, especially Carlos at the front desk.

My 1st choice when visiting Melbourne! Great comfy dream beds, kitchen facilities, great bars and cafes close by, I try a different one each time.

Dear Lovefromdarwin, Thank you for your review and as discussed with you in person on Tuesday I am very sorry this has occurred during your trip. An error occurred during your initial payment which caused our system to charge you twice. This should not have occurred and I am sincerely apologetic this has happened and your stay was negatively affected....

We have been staying at the Cullen regularly since soon after it opened, particularly when we visit family in Melbourne. We have consistently found the Cullen staff friendly and helpful, the location is convenient and the facilities are excellent. As a constructive comment, we would like to see better reading lights for the beds.
