The Olsen is the perfect boutique property located in the heart of Melbourne's South Yarra. The hotel is the perfect base for a stay in Melbourne, located on the famed Chapel St, it's also a couple stops from Flinders St station. Themed around the art of John Olsen, the hotel has a quirky, boutique feel without being too designer that it takes away from the practicality of the room.
We stayed in the Kimberley Suite, a 2-Bedroom Deluxe Balcony Suite on the 9th floor. The room was flawless. The Olsen's website accurately describes the room and the photos are a true reflection of what you are going to walk into. It really felt like a 'home away from home' - if only my own home was so perfect.
The glass pool was really cool, and interesting seeing peoples reaction when they see you swimming above them.
Had breakfast at Spoonbill which was really good. We usually tend to avoid hotel breakfasts but the one at The Olsen was up there with the best of them.
The Olsen set the benchmark and I don't think I'll be able to stay in another Melbourne hotel again.
