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. I would have extended my stay, but the trip was for business, so time was limited. I arrived early, and was fortunate enough...

The Brooklyn Arts Hotel is my favourite place to stay in Melbourne - a home away from home. Just a few steps away from Gertrude Street with its wonderful boutique shops and eateries, its warm, charming and brimming with personality, from the décor to the proprietor Maggie and her lovely pooches, to the other guests at the breakfast table. The...

The Brooklyn Arts Hotel took me back in time. The little courtyard evoked a sensory experience that was rich and memorable. Upon wakening from my sleep, I felt like a child again, warm & safe. Thank you. Fiona

The wonder of this hotel continues to enchant my wife and I. Although Maggies was away her staff and her spirt looks over the place. The pictures and the rooms, the high ceilings and the generous vaguely chambolic feel to the place adds to its charm. If you don't want to stay in some plastic box then this is the...

It's rare to find a hotel that has real character and warmth in such a good city location. This is our favourite place to stay in Melbourne for that reason... Great quality, price, atmosphere and location. The building is a beautiful old classic home, the rooms all individual and the shared bathrooms are great. We have stayed in three different...

On a recent trip to Melbourne I found this great little boutique hotel to be a real treat. The host was charming and the location so very convenient to Melbourne and Gertrude St. You really feel like your in the middle of everything but without the noise and general chaos of big cities. Overall - excellent

I had a Saturday night off work (a very unusual thing indeed) to spend in Melbourne with my girlfriend and a mate of mine suggested staying at the Brooklyn Arts Hotel. The first thing I could say is how convenient a location it is; so close to the city and northside plus getting southside in a taxi was super quick....

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
