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.

The Olsen team went above anything I expected to ensure my mother's 60th was a special night. Our twin room was upgraded to a penthouse compliments of the hotel, and we were treated to a bottle of bubbles and late checkout. A truly luxurious experience!...More

I have walked from the hotel to MOPT via birrang- mar . Its doable but would not recommend. The city has great public transportation so renting a car is not essential.
