Went in November for a business trip for 2 days Well located in Prahran, opposite the markets. The taxi driver had difficulty finding the front entrance, which is off a side street, and left me on opposite side of Commercial Road, and kindly carried my bag across the street. Friendly front desk staff, free morning papers. Rooms are spacious and...

The location is great with easy access to the City via the tram or cabs. Walking to Chapel Street was also easy. The restaurant downstairs is also recommended. I will...

I was with my sister staying in The Cullen in Melbourne. Can't fault this Hotel. Close to markets and a great restaurant on the ground floor. A very comfortable room with good amenities. Will be staying there again in March.

Mini bar very reasonably priced. I rented a Smart car for the day - great service and no hassle. The highlight however is the staff. Very friendly and attentive (without being instrusive) and...

I was so looking forward to my visit at this boutique hotel. Its in such a nice area. Shops, bars, coffee houses etc. I was blown away by the hospitality. Staff, servers, bartenders , so friendly. Now as for the maid service that cleans the rooms, totally ruined my stay. Upon arrival, spider webs, dirty bathroom, and patio filthy. Even...

We checked into the Cullen for a New Years Eve celebration, a small gathering of two friends. We booked the Cullen Suite; a wonderful room, two king size beds, two bathrooms and sweeping views of the city. I can't recommend the room highly enough. However, the service we received was appalling. I left my toothbrush at home, when I contacted...
