Art Series Hotels


Just under a year old, the Art Series Hotels Group has already built three of Melbourne’s hottest hotels, with three more on the way.

Each location is inspired by a different Australian artist for which the hotel is named. Not only does Art Series Hotels offer affordable, design-centric guest rooms, but they have also built numerous dining options within each hotel, as well as offering SmartCar and bicycle rental.

The Cullen

164 Commercial Road  /  Prahran  /  61 (0)3 9098 1555


This Prahran outpost from the Art Series Hotels Group takes inspiration from rebel artist Adam Cullen, whose artwork displays an irreverent sense of humor. Copies of his vibrant pieces can found be throughout this boutique hotel, in addition to Mediterranean and Chinese restaurants.

The Olsen is a 229-suite hotel that uses the creative genius of Australian abstract landscape artist Dr John Olsen as inspiration for the décor. After experiencing the day spa, a Mediterranean café/patisserie and a Brazilian churrascaria, guests can unwind in their serene quarters with stunning city views.
