Funky little find

We love this hotel, the bed is so comfortable and the hotel had a funky feel with modern rooms and amenities. It's just a short stroll from chapel st and the cafe on site does a nice breakfast. You won't be disappointed

Super cozy and great friendly staff!

I stayed at The Cullen 2 nights, one on my own then the second night with a friend and the staff were more than happy to split the bed to 2 singles. I found the rooms to be really comfortable, just like home. The rooms are clean and functional and the staff were very attentive. I've stayed in all the top hotels in the city and have good and bad reviews for all however it was really nice to be in a smaller hotel with a great boutique feel. Walking distance to supermarkets, shopping and to meet friends for dinner. I've stayed at The Olsen and now The Cullen and would do it again! Thanks guys

Foodies will love being close to the Prahran Food Markets

Stayed by myself for 2 nights in a studio suite with a lovely soft king size bed, with the most delightful bed pillows. Friendly staff, easy check in and check out. Great bar and restaurant, and close to loads of shops, quant bars and yummy eateries. If you love fresh food and produce, then the Prahran food markets are across the road. Would stay again for sure.

Weekend getaway

Great location - very close to Prahran train station. Close to the market, restaurants, shops. The room was clean and tidy. Had lots of books on art, Cullen and up to date magazines. Our room had casual dining inside and out on the verandah (Deluxe studio). Minibar was very reasonably priced. Quality bathroom products. The staff were very courteous and helpful. Would recommend this to anyone not wanting to pay city hotel prices but within easy reach of it. Definitely staying there again next visit to Melbourne.

Fantastic couples away weekend

I have to say my experience here was of such a high standard, it exceed the 5 star hotels in Sydney (for which I paid triple the price). Fantastic location, room was extremely comfortable, and the hotel staff were enthusiastic, helpful and very accommodating.

Very nice, but a little louf

The Cullen is a beautiful hotel which is quite different from other luxury hotels in Melbourne. It definitely has a point of difference that we really liked. My only criticism is that I think the construction should have included double glazing. We were five floors up but street noise was still quite loud. For a five star experience, given the location, I think more effort should have been made in construction to block out noise. Otherwise, very nice.
