We stayed at the Olsen from the 11th - 15th of April in a very comfortable room with a good shower and bed. Our "deluxe studio" (upgraded from a "standard studio") looked South along Chapel Street and always had something happening in the view. Although there is a construction zone on the southern rearside of the hotel, it is just about finished, and with the window closed, you don't hear a thing. The venue was great for a wedding and the staff were fantastic to say the least! The spectacular glass bottomed pool and sundeck area are a rare find and on the cool April days meant we could nestle in the sun for a great rest. The Olsen is a great location in South Yarra with stacks of shops nearby and further down Chapel Street in Prahran, you will not want for something to eat as you sit amongst the buzz of young people in Melbourne. Try Zucca Rossa (just opened in the old Post Office) in Greville Street for a real dining experience. The Olsen is highly recommended and you never know which "celebrity" you will bump into in the Lift!
