We went to The Olsen on the recommendation of our daughter, who had stayed there previously for some weeks. It is an Art Hotel with copies of John Olsen's work everywhere. It is in a good location in the Yarra district outside the centre of Melbourne but with easy train and tram services to the centre. The hotel is quiet. It provides simple catering facilities but there is a lack of some basic kitchen equipment. The room was comfortable and there is an excellent bed. We had some concern over the quality of the room cleaning (trash bin not always emptied and surfaces not cleaned). The concierge was fantastic and really went out of his way to be helpful. Helpful and friendly staff.
