Lovely hotel with friendly and happy staff at check in counter. Clean and well equipped room with comfortable bed and sufficient blankets . When I first walked into the room I was a bit overstimulated by all the art and details in the room. But once I got settled in, it actually works quite nicely. The mini bar is well... More

I took a long term stay at the Cullen between settling on my property and purchasing a new one. I certainly can see the attraction in living long term in a good hotel. The long term stay rates are generous. Management are generous on all counts. I thoroughly enjoyed engaging with the front desk. No matter whether I had a... More

Decorated around the work of Adam Cullen, the decor is arresting if repetitive. The room was spacious, bed comfortable. There is a large refrigerator, kettle, microwave, stove top and bar area. In the summer or spring, the large balcony would be a great plus. The housekeeping was a bit haphazard and lackadaisical. Front desk staff cheery and accommodating. The attached... More

My wife and I spent a night in a $730 suite. While it was nice enough and the staff were friendly the room itself was a bit tired. Door hanging of the fridge, towels and robes scratchy and overdue replacing, hatch into wall for services left open. Bit disappointing for somewhere that expensive.

Stayed in Prahran for a foodie weekend and you couldn't get better than to stay opposite Prahran Markets, within cooee of the myriad eateries of Chapel Street (soooo many) and the splendid Chez Olivier french restaurant within 400 metres. Try the great Rufus bar on the other side of the small park from Chez Olivier - very stylish. The Cullen... More

Lovely staff. Hotel was clean, funky and comfy. We were also lucky enough to be upgraded. Restaurant downstairs had great coffee. Only fault was that we could here guests in the function room all night. Would stay here again in a heart beat.

Second time I stayed here, this time for 9 nights. Nice location, funky design. Friendly staff, large and well appointed (apartment style) rooms. Very small (but adequate gym), and 2 really good restaurants downstairs. Close to many cool and hip pubs and wine bars. Tram stop 30 basically outside the door on Commercial street, only 20 min to city centre.... More

Nicely located opposite the Prahran markets close to the Alfred, Chapel St and a $15 taxi ride to the city. Rooms are spacious and well appointed with kitchenette, iron, free wifi and a comfortable bed. Some outside noise filters in and noise from the corridor also makes it's way into the room. The bathroom/toilet was adequate but on the lower... More
