I am a bit of an Art Series Hotels superfan and have now stayed at The Cullen 3 times for business and for fun. The location in Prahran is perfect being a ten minute walk from Prahran Station, directly outside the tram stop, round the corner from the shopping and restaurants of Chapel Street and being across from Prahran market....

My husband and I stayed at the Cullen for three nights in October and had a wonderful stay. Firstly not being twenty or thirty something we were somewhat concerned re noise in what appears to be a hotel for young people. How wrong we were. In fact I had to ask reception if there were other people on the floor...

When in melbourne, I always stay with an art series hotel. However I am sick of the snobbish attitude of reception staff- the males in particular at the Cullen & Blackman. What happened to warm welcoming smiles and genuine friendliness? I'm unsure why reception staff look down their nose at me and talk to me as if they are superior...

I usually stay at another hotel in Melbourne, but loved this visit to The Cullen. You definitely don't feel like you're in 'just another "same same" hotel room' here!! The room is really bright and cheerful, the bed very comfy and I loved having a kitchenette. Being close to both restaurants and cafes, and a supermarket was excellent when there...
