I've stayed at The Olsen a few times now and it's always been great! The rooms are clean and extremely nice...and I mean extremely nice!! Brendan, the concierge was very helpful as were the rest of the staff. The Spoonbill restaurant was also good, I'd gladly stay again :)

Great position in South Yarra.Good shops and restaurants close by.Train station to Melbourne central a short walk. Room on the 14th floor was good with Foxtel on tv.Staff were friendly and helpful.A small negative was the corridors were very dark and dingy giving the wrong impression. Would stay again and recommend.

This is a fantastic trendy hotel located in South Yarra and surrounded by great restaurants and some good bars. The rooms are superbly appointed with nice touches with Olsen artwork and books. Very modern, comfortable and great location if you are looking for somewhere a little out of the city centre.
