The Olsen is a great hotel - fabulous decor - wonderful art of course - and a brilliant location. The staff go out of their way to assist you and can't do enough for you. The bar downstairs serves fab food and is great for a quick bite or dinner with friends. And it's in a fantastic shopping area too!!... More

I had recommended this hotel to friends travelling from Philadelphia so thought I should try it myself. On check-in the very friendly staff warned me that there would be pre-Christmas parties going on in the hotel and they apologised in advance for any inconvenience. This place is modern, arty and hip right in the middle of the hip shopping precint... More

My wife and I stayed at the Olsen Art Series Hotel in August 2014 and found the apartment very comfortable and very well appointed. The art style and decor was delightful and added to our special weekend away. There was lots of special touches like the art books to read, nice pool and deck area for a drink and balcony.... More

The Olsen is a very modern and artsy hotel that has very quickly jumped to the top of my list of places I WANT to stay. I stayed here with a large group over two periods in November and December. On every occasion the front desk staff were so helpful and ready to make anything we needed happen. The bartenders... More

This is my third stay at the Olsen. Had a beautiful Deluxe Studio Suite and it was perfect and clean. Small tiny things there was no tea, sugar or milk but that was easily ordered. The phone was not working in the room for external calls so I called from my mobile and was directed to the Front Desk. I... More

I stayed here whilst on my honeymoon in Melbourne as part of a tour of Australia. upon arrival we loved the look of the hotel. The room was really spacious, modern and the views outside the room were perfect. We spent the majority of the time out and about in Melbourne and this was lovely and warm. We also ate... More

This is a nice hotel. It is a little on the pricey side for the service you get though. Housecleaning during your stay is the bare minimum, we were out most days and getting back in the evening all that had been done was the beds made wet towels removed and new soap put in. Only received one supply of... More

Enjoyed the Olsen, great place to be able to wander down Chapel Street or Toorak Road. Nice room with a little kitchenette, small but adequate bathroom and comfortable bed. Bar fridge was as well stocked as I've seen and I enjoyed the coconut water! Good restaurant downstairs off the lobby where I had an excellent "big breakfast" Handy parking underneath... More

Most impressed with "The Olsen", I wrote a letter to the hotel manager and the company director (owner). The first point of contact to our departure was brilliant and most genuine! They zoomed over and above our expectation, with the excitement to please! I love service and people, and this team is one of the highest of helpful staff, I... More
