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...

A standard room is small but due to clever design packs a lot in. Good bathroom lay out, smart useful furniture and a small kitchenette make this a good option for a quick stay and generally cost effective. Good services in a well located hotel (a quick visit at the chocolate shop next door is worthwhile). Bars and restaurants on...

Perfect location and really friendly staff with an amazing pool. We stayed in a studio, this room has everything you need with modern fittings but is tiny. If you on holiday and need a great hotel this is perfect but if your the type to spend your holiday in your room this style of room is not for you.

The Olsen review My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Olsen. The General Manager Lee Davey was fantastic! He went out of his way to make sure our stay was special. We decided for my birthday (and as a mini break from the rigors of family life!) we would stay at The Olsen as we had heard...

The studio rooms are fairly small and the bathrooms tiny. They are badly designed. For example the kitchen sink is too high for someone who isn't very tall. I would not recommend this hotel. It is overpriced for its location too. Not a very attractive part of Chapel st.

Staying in Chapel Street

Neighbourhood 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.
