My colleague and I got a 72 hour deal on Wotif and decided to stay at The Olsen for a few nights for work purposes. This hotel was a really nice surprise when I did not know what to expect with a smaller boutique hotel. The artwork in the hotel by John Olsen was truly amazing and I loved the glass wall between the bathroom and main room. The minibar was stocked full and the snacks were so original from the local markets. We went to the Spoonbill bar a few times and the knowledge and professionalism of the staff was great. Such a funky bar! Loved it. Only complaint would be that the lighting in the bathroom is hard to put your make up on with and also no powerpoint in the bathroom saw me trying to blowdry my hair with a stretch in the main bedroom. The location is perfect, nice and quiet, but close enough to restaurants and bars (and shopping) on Chapel Street. Would definately recommend and stay again.
