The rooms are spotless, spacious and comfortable with excellent facilities for self catering. There are many quality catering establishments nearby as well as supermarkets. Front of house staff were outstanding as were all staff we came into contact...

We were absolutely blown away by the service we received from the second we arrived until we left the next day (in the afternoon as we were given a late check out!!). I mentioned when I booked that it was my husband's birthday and we...

This hotel is so cool and chic, with a definite Melbourne vibe. It is gorgeous, super comfortable and you even get free slippers whooo hooo! The pool is also an experience looking through the glass onto the street. A little tip, perhaps as if there are any spare disabled rooms (i am not suggesting you take this room from someone...

The people at The Olsen hotel are a stand out. Wait staff and front of house - amazing, helpful, delightful. Parking convenient, location great, restaurant - wonderful food and excellent wait staff. Room: I classify mine as Hong Kong small. Tight fit due to good sized kitchenette and poorly located desk/mirror. Bathroom - handbasin has no room for cosmetics, however...

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.
