A trip to Melbourne for the football turned into a lovely, relaxing couple of days away after we stumbled across The Olsen hotel. This hotel is brand new and they have gone to a lot of trouble to cover every little detail. From the LED lights in the shower to the bikes for hire in the foyer.
From the moment we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with friendly service and even a small gift of a canvas and paints to fit the art theme. We stayed in a studio suite and although we found it to be small, the design was well thought out. The glass wall to separate the bathroom and main room was impressive! We also had a fantastic view of the city from our room.
The location was great, shops in Chapel Street and great restaurants in Toorak Road right at your doorstep. Not to mention a quick drive to the MCG.
We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting The Olsen again in the near future. (Next time we'll remember our swimsuits, the pool looked amazing!)
