Neighbourhood
Chapel Street
Seek and ye shall find! Prahran is a treasure hunter’s paradise of vintage stores, upscale boutiques and emporiums. Chapel Street is a one-stop shop with specialty stores selling just about everything. The famous Chapel Street Bazaar has so many curious and vintage knick-knacks that you will feel as if you're in a huge and busy museum. By contrast, at the northern end of Chapel Street, South Yarra and Windsor cater to high-end designer labels and exclusive boutiques. The community flocks to Prahran’s organic markets as a Saturday ritual, while art and film students leaf through vinyl LPs on Greville Street. The gay community also has a strong presence here. Prahran’s heritage buildings like the Reads Emporium and Prahan arcade offer a grand sense of scale and history. No matter your interest, come feel the pulse of one of Melbourne’s most loved precincts.

We had a wonderful two nights at The Olsen. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Rooms are very comfy and beautifully decorated with artwork by John Olsen. Great for those special occasions.

The Olsen team went above anything I expected to ensure my mother's 60th was a special night. Our twin room was upgraded to a penthouse compliments of the hotel, and we were treated to a bottle of bubbles and late checkout. A truly luxurious experience!...More

I have walked from the hotel to MOPT via birrang- mar . Its doable but would not recommend. The city has great public transportation so renting a car is not essential.
