Life in the fast lane
The Cullen is an upbeat and fabulous hotel in the heart of all the action. I loved the Grammecy restaurant downstairs and there is so many great bars and clubs close by. There is a great vibe and the fit out, art work, and furnishings are amazing. Make sure you sign up as a hotel member as this enables you to receive 20% discount at the hotels outlets. Unfortunately I was not told this till my last day and with a $1500 tab I would of saved quite an amount.

Cullen in April
Great location, quirky milieu. Great food in Hutong too If I had a critic is it is lack of drawer space for clothes - you have to live out of the suitcase

Fantastic but could taken to the next level
The bed, the art and the cleanliness
Apart from the single morning where I had to wait nearly thirty minutes for toiletries to be replaced, I had a fantastic experience at The Art Hotel. The hotel has everything - central location, clean and amazingly comfortable beds but having to pay for the internet is stupid. Remember, we are in 2015?

Expectations not met
Location and design
The $10 fee for a power adapter, 11am checkout and no free wifi means the Cullen is out of step with its rivals in this price bracket.

love the area and the vibes of the hotel
Amazing rooms, amazing rooms, amazing rooms.
I love the rooms - it wasn't just about comfort, but also convenience - the design was very functional and well thought through. The neighbourhood is really nice and the in-house cafe is great - great coffee and excellent cafe food - i had the portobello mushroom with pesto sauce on toast. it was amazing! Of course, the arty theme is the best feature of all!
