The Olsen, in the residential suburb of South Yarra, has 229 five-star suites and two in-house restaurants on the city’s finest shopping strip, just five kilometres drive from Melbourne’s city centre.

The fully serviced apartments of various sizes and styles feature an inspiring living and working space with plenty of natural light and fresh air. The fully equipped kitchenette with modern appliances and the dining area allow you the flexibility of preparing your own food, should you wish. Each apartment comes complete with 42”HD flat screen TV with Foxtel, high-speed internet and an iPod docking station. The property is non-smoking throughout.

The two beautifully designed restaurants are among fashionable Chapel Street’s hottest dining spots and serve inspiring fresh fare to guests and passers-by alike. The warm and inviting Spoonbill Restaurant and Bar, with a mix of new and recycled furniture, is open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks; on a sunny day or balmy evening it offers alfresco dining. Steer, on the other hand, is a classic New York-style steakhouse with Australia’s largest selection of Wagyu beef, sourced from Victoria’s lush pastures or top-quality NSW and Queensland producers, served with an exciting selection of salsas and relishes. The wine list carries a wide variety of local, vintage and unique wines from around the world, while the cocktail bar offers both classic favourites and exotic creations.
