Great Hotel I. Convenient location close to Chapel Street and Torack Road. Fantastic service. Few dings and scratches in public areas but overall quite good. Lovely friendly staff and beautiful clean rooms. Whilst overall very good I prefer The Cullen which is also an Art Series Hotel just down the road from this hotel and is in a more central... More

Hi Mr-Corradi, Thank you so much for your review and also for completing our comment card on departure. It is great that you have had the opportunity to try both The Olsen and The Cullen - perhaps 'the art of living fearlessly' appeals to you more! Whether at The Cullen or here at The Olsen, we look forward to seeing... More

Stayed for one night due to work. First stay here and pleasantly surprised by good service and early check-in option. Stayed at room 606 and was not too impressed by layout of bathroom. No tub, no biggie but still would have been nice. Liked kitchenette feature, would have been alright for longer stays. Would have been nice if there was... More

The Olsen was clean, comfortable, sophisticated and a little bit quirky. The staff were both friendly and accomodating. It is positioned close to a variety of excellent restaurants, shops and movie theatres. A very enjoyable stay indeed.

If you're someone who enjoys boutique hotels and feeling a true sense of "place" when you travel - then look no further. The service, the rooms, the style of the hotel, the restaurant were excellent. The concierge and hotel staff are a joy and even the fitness center and pool are first rate for a boutique hotel (not as extensive... More

Upon entering The Olsen, I felt like a celebrity, which ironically enough I spotted several celebrities during my stay, but back to the story.... Mmm exquisite lobby and entrance, always serving ice tea or champagne and the cute vintage bicycles give this hotel a really fresh cute feel. All the staff here treat you like royalty every day, they are... More

I was looked after from check-in to check-out. Every staff member I encountered was freindly and helpful and I felt like I was in a luxurious space. The only thing I could pick out was the music was too loud in the foyer and outside.
