We stayed for 4 nights and thought the location of this hotel was great - just a few minutes walk to South Yarra station for very frequent trains into the city centre and also very handy for travelling south out to St Kilda etc. South Yarra had a really nice vibe about it and great choice of restaurants nearby.

Went for a conference and the facilities and staff were world class. The conference rooms had everything that you would need. The location on Chapel Street is great if you want to stroll the streets for some atmosphere and energy.

Everything during our stay was impeccable; from the service during our conference, the incredible and generous breakfast options to the bed I was very tempted to take home, the Olsen truly is a remarkable experience. Couldn't recommend this hotel any higher and very good value for...

The beds are super comfortable and the food at our function was delicious. It was great to have a gym where you had all the equipment you could need to do a work out with extended hours to go at your own leisure.

The Olsen is in a great location. It provides good transport links to the city centre or even better a 40 minute walk along the Yarra River. The rooms are very comfortable, spotlessly clean and well maintained. However, there are no tubs and the floor of the wet rooms became slippery and dangerous when wet. There was no real way...

Staying in Chapel Street

Neighborhood 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.
