Guest reviews

    The pool and gym and the paintings

    The walls that you can hear guests come home at noght. The credit card charge on departure and the high cost of valet parking

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    the room design and the corridors were excellent, room however was very small

    every thing we tried to do for some reason went wrong! Hotel staff very new and although they tried hard they have a lot to learn

  • Group of friends

    I enjoyed the artworks. The hotel is in great location.

    Breakfast was average, but staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

  • Single

    The Olsen is a beautiful new Melbourne hotel, only open three weeks when I stayed there. The use of John Olsen's art throughout is beautiful, and the rooms are very well appointed with great linen. It is modern, stylish and close to Melbourne's sporting and shopping meccas.

    As the hotel had only been open three weeks, there were a number of mistakes in the service which should improve over time, including the early closing of the kitchen and room service (which reception staff were not aware of) and the poorly functioning, slow and expensive internet connection. The biggest problem was the unwillingness of the hotel staff to compensate guests for the problems.

  • Older travelers

    Not very much, was just a break to change the routine of every day life. Ended up staying two nights.

  • Couple
    8.8

    We enjoyed the style of the Hotel and the convenience of its location.

    A bathtub/spa would have been preferable in the hotel room in which we stayed.

  • Couple
    8.8

    Fabulous location! Glass bottomed pool and sun deck are lovely, would be great to visit when it was a little warmer. Food from both Steer and Blue Bottle was excellent.

    Our room was a little on the small side and the view was terrible.

  • Couple
    9.2

    The location is great! Right at the top end of cosmopolitan South Yarra. Walking distance to boutiques, cafes, restaurants, bars, cinemas, galleries & much more!!

    The car park is much to small & the water pressure in the shower is very weak.

  • Single
    7.0

    The fact that paying with Credit Card there is a surcharge. This is really annoying and not fair. Nobody pays cash. Booking com should do something about it. I also did not like that they asked a refundable advance charge of 100au$ for any damage!

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Shopping and visiting family

    Poor lighting in the bath room, poor parking facilities (not enough spaces)

  • Couple
    8.8

    The room was large and well equipt . The location was quiet and we were not disturbed by any street noise . Nice to have opening windows . The bed was very comfortable .The pool area and gym were a bonus . Easy walk to everything Chapel street has to offer , shopping , cafes , restaurants etc .

    Only very minor complaint would be that the lifts are quite slow , so took to using the stairs , which was quicker , but also good for extra exercise . Security key cards could be a bit finicky and sometomes took a few swipes to get them to work , but unfortunaetly this seems to be a fault of all security card systems . Overall a very enjoyable stay .

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Fabulous place to stay, for a girls shopping trip, close by chapel street shopping precinct, toorak road and high street armadale a shopping Mecca . Staff very obliging.

    The only thing I could fault would be the acoustics in the bathroom are not good and you can hear a person in the toilet.

  • Single
    6.6

    A clean room.

    Some of the staffs are not willing to help.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Nice new rooms and staff very accommodating.

    First night was in room that is smaller than what is shown in website. The balcony room with more than just a view was on the first floor looking into construction site. Hotel manager accepted that there is a difference and swapped rooms the following nights.

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    Location and the convenience on an in house car parking facility

    Higher price of the balcony room with the balcony being unusable due to the construction activities surronding the hotel, room cleanliness and missing in room provisions i.e. towels, cutlerry, glasses and similar
