Recent guest reviews

The staff was welcoming and engaging, rooms where keep clean and well stocked with complimentary items. The staff accommodated our request to allow our daughter to stay in our room while we travelled to other areas of Australia.

I stayed at the Olsen for a few days whilst on a business trip to Melbourne from the USA. The hotel was impeccably clean and the design modern and welcoming. My mini-suite was perfect for my needs. The gym had the free weights and machines I needed. Being super jet-lagged, I ordered in for breakfast each day. The quality of the food at the Olsen is excellent. Top notch ingredients prepared correctly. All in all I had a great stay for a great price. I'll definitely be back.

The Olsen had a warm atmosphere and very pleasant staff. I found it to be well priced and considered it good value. I appreciated the self parking option at a reasonable rate. The location was great with many options for dining (fine and family) and various shops on both Chapel Street and Toorak Road. The Botanical Gardens and the Yarra river parklands were also close by. Finding fault is difficult but I would have liked to have the option to re-use towels rather than hve them changed daily.

I was here on business and chose this hotel based on its location. Chapel Street has tons of great shops, cafes and restaurants. The hotel decor was beautiful...I felt more like I was in an NYC studio than a hotel. The service was excellent, although the housekeeping did just the basics (make the bed and change out the towels). Usually they clean up a little more. Other than that it was an amazing hotel.

Was fine (after they provided a remote control for the TV). Perfect for a quick stay

The hotel is in a great location with several restaurants and shops nearby, also close to a tram stop that takes about 20 min to the Federation square. I was here to attend a conference and most of my colleagues were stay close to the exhibition centre, and finally they all agree I made a great decision to stay in The Olsen.
