Room was good, but some feedback...

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Kane Families - Confirmed reviews ALL

I was happy with your hotel and the room etc but wanted to share a not so great experience. When we checked in late Saturday night you had what seemed like a footy team/bucks group in your foyer. As I was parking the car and my wife was checking in with our 2 small children, the group made several inappropriate comments to her of a sexual nature right in front of our kids. Now I am not unfairly holding the hotel accountable as you will see with my score but wanted you to know that having large groups of clearly drunk people in your foyer as guest are checking is not a great look for your hotel.

I came down with my boss who stays their regularly - the hotel never remembers or has a record of his details and he has to fill out the same form every time he stays ! Complications with check in for myself, the front desk girl couldn't find my booking even after I gave her all my identification - then called the manager who found it straight away No room service on Sunday night and no snacks in the room - have the rooms changed to just serviced apartments? Toilets downstairs were dirty The cleaner started vacuuming the front of the hotel during the busy check in time in the morning with cords running every where while people were stepping over them to check in - stepping over them to try to get to breakfast - it looked terrible, really unprofessional and made the hotel look really cheap! Why cant they clean the front of the hotel before guests wake up and start arriving? Quite disappointing since I last stayed there and in fact the service and the whole feel of the hotel has deteriorated over the last few years... we will be booking into the Como from now on.

Great stay

Small room and bathroom with no space next to the basin for a toothbrush. Insufficient and poor quality toiletries. On arrival, the safe was broken and there was no wifi in our room. When packing to move rooms, my shoes had to be taken to be dried as the bottom of the wardrobe was sopping. Later that day, I had to ask for them to be returned. There was no concierge at the concierge desk. The restaurant was overpriced and the quality of the food substandard. The positive aspect was that the staffwere obliging and helpful.

Very poor check in experience. Hotel was booked via Qantas but I have no ID with me other than digital version, CC cards etc. was travelling with my wife who showed both Medicare and Private Health crass demonstrating my name was same as booking. Staff member said more proof was needed and I had to log onto internet banking and show my name. One we got through that, was told room wasn’t ready but one on a lower floor was. We’re told exact same room, just different view. Room on 3rd floor had view of laneway and was noisy with trucks. Booked room was on 14th floor- your staff really need to guide a guest better in these instances. The room itself had some major design flaws. Light in bathroom shines through glass partition to those sleeping, very disturbing. Terrible pillows and no extras supplied either. Was also told at check in was 10am but could be extended to 11. On check out was told check out is 11.

Very Comfortable Indeed

have been a loyal member with Accor for 8 years and I have never had to make a complaint until now. I just stayed for 2 nights at the Olsen in South Yarra, I stayed here 3 years ago and it was good. However, this time I was put next to the lift which was distributive, I was given pool towels as bathroom towels, there was mould in the shower. ( Photos attached) The bed was uncomfortable and so were the sheets. I could hear running water through the wall from 4.30am both mornings from other people having a shower I assume. I am extremely disappointed and won’t be staying here again.

Our room wasn't ready when we arrived but we were given drink vouchers which we used in the restaurant while waiting. We were pleasantly surprised when we finally got up to our family suite that we had been upgraded to a more spacious suite than we'd booked. We had one family member in a wheelchair so the extra space was wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, staff were extremely friendly/helpful, our suite and the entire hotel was spotless (don't know about a few reviews thay have stated otherwise??), lovely surroundings, great pool, walking distance to Como House & gardens & amazing shops/restaurants... We thoroughly enjoyed our couple of nights at The Olsen and would definitely stay there again.

Good location however the bed was uncomfortable, the shower floods the bathroom floor if the pressure is up & the pillows were non-supportive. Some staff in the restaurant I had to approach to get served.

had to get moved to a new room as aircon was making loud noises (maintenance said its the bearings - old building). Then even in the new room (upgraded to top level - thank you) all night you would hear the clanging of the lifts (not a normal sound for lifts - must be old also). Lastly the wifi signal was poor (in both rooms). I was going to look at holding leadership team functions at this hotel but didn't bother talking to anyone after this experience.

Enjoyable stay

violetblue2u TripAdvisor review

Its always a pleasure to stay at The Olsen, we arrived early and were so lucky to be able to go to our room then, which was a bonus. Staff are welcoming and make you feel happy to be there and that nothing is a hassle. I like the location as it is out of the "main" part of Chapel road but such an easy walk or Tram ride down the street or into the city.

Dear violetblue2u, Its always a pleasure to host you at the hotel, and it puts big smiles on all of our staffs' faces reading your kind recognition of everyone's hard-work. Nothing means more to us than seeing our happy guests returning, it makes what we do all worth-while. Thank you again for your heart-felt comment and we cannot wait to see you again soon. Sincerely, The Olsen Team
