The Olsen is a wonderful art hotel celebrating the works of one of Australia's great artists (John Olsen). The rooms I've stayed in are beautifully decorated with works from Olsen, classy Kartell chairs and lamps, and art books. A refreshing, relaxing environment with attentive professional staff. I can thoroughly recommend this hotel.

I have just stayed at the Olsen South Yarra. From checking in with Jaidyn to check out with Rosie I found every aspect of my stay to be wonderful. If I can say that in light of the Coronavirus which is happening in our world. I stayed 3 nights from interstate to help my daughter move, and was kindly upgraded from a one bedroom studio to a two bedroom studio. Which came in very handy with the fridge, nespresso machine etc. We had room service for dinner, prompt and delicious. Breakfast in the restaurant 1st morning was excellent as were the staff there. I noted that they kept everyone apart from each other even though the social distancing was not yet mandatory. Other meals we had in our room. Room was spotless, as were the other public areas of the hotel. Did not use the gym or the pool. I found all of the staff we dealt with to be very professional and lovely in such difficult circumstances and wish everyone all the very best. Once this Coronavirus is over we will have no hesitation in staying there again.

Can’t fault this hotel. I was having a mini me-treat, and wanted to pick a hotel that suited my taste but wasn’t super pricey. I’ve visited The Olsen socially before and liked it, but really loved my experience as a guest. Classy, trendy, stylish, friendly, great little perks and attention to detail. I think this will become my “go-to”
