We stayed for four nights and really enjoyed our stay. The room was fun and comfortable and the staff were really helpful and friendly. Our flight left in the evening and we were offered shower facilities with shampoo, towels etc. My only dislike was the bathroom. We stayed in a Junior Suite and the bathroom was tiny. This was not...

Had a four night stay in a twin suite. Attention to detail was impressive and one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. NO free wifi was the only disappointing thing. Would definitely recommend and stay again. Directly across the road from a food market and surrounded by shops, cafes and restaurants.

We stayed here to redeem a free "priority guest rewards" night and ended up staying on for an extra 2 nights. Great, comfy rooms. A little squeezy with kids as well but we got by. There's a tram stop out the front and market across the road which is very handy. Staff we could not fault at all, they were...

I have now stayed at all 3 art series properties (The Cullen, The Blackman & The Olsen), and I have got too say they are just the most impressive bunch of boutique hotels out there! The rooms are trendy, the mattress is the best, and of course the kitchenette is always handy. From all three properties, I have to say...

The Cullen at Prahran is comfortable, convenient and has friendly efficient staff but no free wifi in rooms or even the lobby. The cost to use wifi at The Cullen is not excessive but there should be NO cost when the room tariff is by no means cheap. Travellers from overseas need wifi for communication and work and it is...

Studio suite was fairly good size, well-equipped and clean. Bed and sofa are very comfortable and furniture are stylish. Some paintings indeed are a bit scary but not a problem to me, I think they are all funky and have a theme. Staff are friendly too.
