“Could not fault - extremely comfortable bed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2013 via mobile

Location was superb, staff extremely helpful and welcoming and the room was extremely clean as well as the bed being one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on( and the pillows). Would definitely return and also consider bringing my children. The car hire is extremely reasonable as well ( but really only for two adults max)

This is possibly the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Certainly the most comfortable bed, linen and pillows I have encountered. I love the art in the rooms and the unique vibe the hotel offers. It's like sleeping in an art gallery. Perfect location in central Prahran with many Melbourne features at your doorstep. The staff were very helpful and seemed to fit perfectly with the atmosphere the hotel offered. So refreshing to stay somewhere that wasn't your average clinical hotel.

This is a cool, relaxed hotel in an interesting Melbourne neighbourhood. Its personality comes from Adam Cullen's artwork (predominantly images from the world of The Kelly Gang) and the architecture of the building. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the pavement bar and restaurant complete the easy-going ensemble.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

After reading a couple of reviews I was a bit anxious about staying at the cullen - but it was exceptional! We stayed in a junior penthouse and the room was spacious and open with a HUGE balcony (and BBQ!) The reception staff at check in were welcoming and ensured that we knew the area well (and if we didn't, they were going to give up maps of the area so we could get around easy).

We had an issue with being overcharged from the mini bar, but the reception staff who we called cleared this straight away for us and refunded the money back into my back account fast and easy.

Would definitely stay here again!

Had a great stay, couldn't fault the place, friendly staff and great rooms, not to mention the cool art everywhere you looked. The beds are so comfy and the place so relaxed. Loved getting up early and walking the markets just accross the road and grabing that morning coffee. We will be back for sure
