I'm working my way through the Art Series Hotels as I really enjoy their cool, casual vibe and the great artworks they showcase. The Olsen is another terrific hotel. Great price/value but has the coolness/vibe of a way more expensive hotel. And they have fun, have quirky elements that simply make you smile, and that's a tough gig when you...

There is a reason I keep coming back to The Olsen in South Yarra, as I have had nothing short of wonderful experiences each and every time. The rooms are beautifully designed, spacious and smell divine with a signature suite scent. The customer service is beyond exceptional, the team are always courteous, willing to help, and will go out of...

I really liked the pics of this place and was excited to see it was discounted from $300 to 220 per night.. It was meant to be a romantic weekend in Melbourne. What we got was an average hotel and an average room that was not cosy, no view at all, no doona cover and lights werent working. Facilities were...

Love the Olsen! From friendly staff at check in who let us into our room early as it was ready, to the most comfortable hotel bed, beautifully decorated room and fantastic location. I have stayed here a couple of times now, and upon return to Melbourne, I don't think I will stay anywhere else!

I travelled alone for a weekend in Melbourne. I was very impressed with the cleanliness and standard of the room. I didn't get to try out any of the amenities but they are all there if you need them. A great value hotel in a fantastic location.

We stayed in a deluxe two bedroom apartment. Although it looked very nice, some areas needed improvement. We could not get the spa bath to work as we could not pull the button from the wall to change from shower to bath. We had to get a manager to come up to the room with plyers to do so. They...

Hello Jasmine, Thanks for taking the time to review your recent stay, apologies for the maintenance issue you faced with the spa bath. It's certainly not a common occurance, I hope whoever attended was being prepared to ensure it was corrected in one visit. I trust you enjoyed your stay thereafter.

We were booked for 3 nights at The Olsen for the start of our holiday in Australia but our flight from Singapore was delayed by 24 hours so we missed the first night.

A lot of people recommend the Olsen to us for babymoon but I was quite disappointed. We booked through the entertainment book for an upgraded room with a balcony which we couldn't use because it overlooked straight into an office building which everyone looks at you as soon as you step out onto.

I always stay at the Art Series Hotels when I'm in Melbourne because of the impeccable service, comfortable beds and high standards. The Olsen is central to the CBD, shopping, restaurants and bars and I love the artworks on display. Will definitely be coming again!!

Staying in Chapel Street

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
