Stayed at The Olsen with my husband and son for 2 nights in a Deluxe Studio room, and then for 2 nights by myself in a Studio room. The Deluxe studio room is a very good size for the king bed and rollaway bed - plenty of room for three of us. The Studio is smaller (as expected), but still a great size for two people. I appreciated the kitchenette, and while I didn't cook it was great to be able to have a comfortable breakfast in the room as I prefer to start the day with my own cereal and fruit. I was thrilled to have the best sleep in years in the amazing beds. The service was excellent: friendly, genuine, competent - all the things hotel service should be but often isn't in Australia. Even my 15 year old son commented on how nice the reception staff were. I was particularly impressed with one of the reception staff who remembered my name, surely almost unheard of in a full hotel. The pool really makes this hotel. After 4 days of watching tennis, the pool was a wonderful way to relax in the evenings (and mornings too). We all loved The Olsen and will definitely return on future trips to Melbourne.
