Room location

I was given a room which opened into a public balcony. Fortunately it was cold and windy otherwise there would have been the potential to have people outside my room. There was an unusual window which allowed others to look into the room which had no blind or curtain. I did not appreciate this privacy issue nor the light that came in. Shower growing mould in one corner. Otherwise staff very helpful and amenities excellent. I had stayed before and had had a much better room.

Fantastic girls night out.

My 2 girlfriends and l stayed for a night at The Olsen. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom Penthouse suite for the night which was a fantastic and much appreciated surprise. The views were amazing from all room aspects, the beds very comfortable and loved the facilities. In fact we didn't want to leave and go out for dinner on vibrant Chapel street.... but we did. Staff were very accommodating however there was a slight hiccup when booking out due to technological issues. Just a tip, free WiFi should be included. Love the stay though and definitely will return in the future.

Always fantastic

Love this hotel. It;s unique & stylish & makes you feel like a rockstar in the heart of South Yarra. Comfortable bed & pillows and incredible view of Chapel Street. Handy having a hotplate & mini oven suitable for cooking simple meals if you don't want to sample the amazing choice of restaurants on Chapel street.

Amazing hotel and amazing staff

I was treated like a princess from day-dot. I couldn't have wished for better service, and was taken-away by the amazing views and stunning interior decorating. Perfection!!!!

Business trip

Convenient location for my business trip and also great dining and shopping nearby. Hotel restaurant was a really good experience, lovely setting, quick, efficient and very friendly service with very good food. Room was a little on the small side for a "suite" but quite adequate as I was travelling on my own. It did have a small kitchenette area and a small balcony. This is currently overlooking what is to become a construction site. Furnishings are modern and tasteful - a little bit of luxe which was nice. What was not nice was the blood stained doona, squeaky bed and greying towels in the bathroom and the empty shoe shine box. I also get grumpy when there is no bedside clock provided.

Fantastic

I stayed at the Olsen for the first time last week and loved it. The location is fantastic and the bed (and pillows!!!!!) were SOOOO delicious I could barely drag myself out of bed to hit the shops!!!!! The staff were very friendly and helpful (the concierge lent me his tram travel pass to go into the city!) and the minor problem I had was delt with professionally by the desk staff when I brought it to their attention. I'd definitely stay at the Olsen again.

Delightful visual experience

Wow, it definitely has the wow factor, it's warm, welcoming foyer, to the corridors and finally the hotel suite is inviting and cosy. The artworks by John Olson show how much pride he has in his Hotel and makes you feel like he wants to share with you his love and passion for the arts.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Plan what you want to see and do, before you go because there is something for everyone. Whether you are an art lover, shopaholic, night lifer or you just love the architecture. You will need more the two days to do it in.

Best location for shopping

We had a great weekend in the center of the shopping districts of Melbourne. The room was a great size but the shower room and toilet were small and behind a clouded glass partition that gave little noise privacy ( if you get what I mean ). The bar was also very comforatble and the snacking platter amazing. A great location and helpful staff always beats any other tiny problems.
