We stayed at this hotel for the weekend. It is excellent value. Great location close to restaurants and shops but still not noisy. The Pathan Food market is just across the road too. I think the room cleaning daily could be a bit more thorough.

Had a great weekend stay at the Cullen. Rooms are well appointed with more than you need. Not huge but the beds are very good. The location is great if you want markets, cafes and lots of variety. Not cheap however worth the expense.

Had a quick overnight stay in Melbourne for business and was surprised when the travel agent booked The Cullen. Upon arrival i was greeted by the most friendly staff who were quick to identify themselves by name. After 5 different modes of transport that day to get from home to the hotel (bus, ferry, train, plane and taxi) together with... More

This is a great place to stay when visiting Melbourne. The Cullen is located opposite Prahran Market, and a short walk to shops, bars, cafes and restaurants on Chapel Street and nearby Toorak. There's a tram stop around the corner and you are in the city in 10-12 mins. If it's windy... the tram stop catches a breeze and there's... More

Our room had everything we needed. The staff were great. We arrived late, and the car park was full; so we left reception the car keys and they were able to park the car later in the night when the linen had been collected. The bed was very comfortable and the new linen was really wonderful. There was a lovely... More

Recently stayed there for work as my normal hotel was booked due to Melbourne Cup, it's in a great location directly opposite the Praha markets which was great but didn't realise they close on Wednesday. Room service was very nice and the breakfast was excellent, the rooms are very different but very clean and modern. My only call out would... More

Tastefully decorated, spacious rooms with beautiful artwork on the walls. This hotel is in the middle of a residential neighbourhood with lots of great cafes, restaurants and bars. Very helpful staff at the reception.

We chose The Cullen as our wedding night hotel and from the moment we contacted them, they were fantastic. Terrific experience booking the hotel and really friendly staff who made us feel special right from the outset. We even got a complimentary bottle of champagne, a late checkout and a lovely handwritten note in the room to welcome us. Perhaps... More

I stayed at The Cullen a couple of weeks ago for my birthday with my sister and a friend. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to the mini penthouse suite (happy birthday to me!). This would normally be out of our budget so it was a real treat to stay in this room. It was gorgeous and had lots... More

I loved staying here. The room was of a reasonable size with a kitchenette and decent sized bathroom. The artwork may be garish for some but I think it's great to stay somewhere a bit left of centre and really enjoyed my experience. Great location, just off Chapel street or jump on a tram into the city. Nice view looking... More
