Is it an art gallery or a hotel? After resting the head here on a number of occasions, we’re still unsure what’s the best part of staying at the Olsen – the contemporary and spacious rooms, or the seemingly never-ending artworks of the artist himself, John Olsen. Ask nicely, and you could even take an artwork or two home with you. There’s a lot of white in the hotel and it sets the scene for Olsen’s colour and creativity to truly take over the hotel, seemingly well, as an art gallery in its own right.
