I was very happy to land in friendly, funny and bohemian travellers home for my first three nights in Australia. And I was lucky to meet Maggie herself, having breakfast and chatting with us at the communal table. She made me feel very welcome. I liked the hospitality of the house, like leaving the dining room open all day, for...

'Absolutely fabulous' vibe with great staff and delightful rooms. The shared table was a pleasure with a variety of interesting folks with whom to talk to and share experiences. As an ageing fashionista I was also enormously impressed with Gertrude Street, just around the corner, with its fantastic array of uber hip boutiques, restaurants and antique/vintage stores. In the immortal...

Thanks Julian for your lovely review of your stay with us. I do remember your own fashionista style of dress and the great time you had acquainting yourself with Gertrude Street.

We arrived in the morning from London, jet lagged and disoriented and were met by the lovely Cedar who welcomed us warmly and invited us to enjoy coffee in the breakfast room while she made up our room. The hotel is in a great location, close to shops and bars and a short tram ride into the centre of the...

For those of you who are looking for something different, look no further. The Brooklyn Arts Hotel is fabulous. We arrived late at night and we were greeted by the lovely Cedar, our host for the weekend. Our room was beautiful and quirky and looked out onto the courtyard garden. The staff just couldn't do enough for us, even offering...

I have become a regular at Brooklyn Arts. I live in the countryside and make regular medical trips to Melbourne. I have tried a number of Fitzroy accommodations and have settled on this one. As an asthmatic I am dust sensitive so cleanliness is my first criteria. This hotel is always clean. The hosts are wonderfully friendly and helpful. The...

I stayed there one night and was fortunate to be given the Green Room, the only Room in the B&B with its own en-suite shower stall, toilet and sink, but also with a comfortable veranda to sit in on George Street. I thought this hotel was full of charm and taste, furnished in actual antiques and decorated with real works...

Our stay at the Brooklyn Arts Motel was one of the highlights of our girls' trip to Victoria. The house is an old two-story building on the south end of Fitzroy, with the hip streets and restaurants starting just around the corner. It is filled with the loveliest of curios, old furniture, ceiling moldings, paintings, and wall colours, so you're...

I visited this private hotel when a couple I know were staying. It was a surprise for me as I hadn't known about it. Its location near both Fitzroy and Collingwood is excellent if you plan to walk to venues in those suburbs, and in appearance it's quirky, arty, etc, as the previous reviews report. As I'm all for difference...

The Brooklyn Arts Hotel was simply fabulous. Room was generous with private bathroom, interesting artefacts all around the place to keep the mind and body nourished. Hosts were knowledgeable and eager to help. The location was central and close to everything. Would definitely recommend staying here!

After three weeks at a string of cold, unwelcoming, high turn-over hotels, the last of which was in the center of Melbourne's CBD, I was lucky enough to stay with Maggie and the ladies of Brooklyn Arts.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Brooklyn is a perfect place to stay if you are not looking for a standard hotel room. It is beautiful, friendly, quiet, interesting, quirky and personal, within walking distance of central Melbourne. The atmosphere is relaxed and congenial. There is a garden to sit in and birds to listen to.Brooklyn is a big old house on the city edge of Fitzroy. You can walk through parks or take a tram a few minutes from the door, to city venues, stations and airport connections. Fitzroy’s great mix of people makes this one of the most interesting parts of Melbourne to hang out in. ... more   less
