In Melbourne for a quick in and out or a long lie in? Here’s a snappy list of unique and award-winning places to stay in our world famous Chapel Precinct!
Bold, flamboyant and splattered with original Adam Cullen artwork, The Cullen is the cool kid on the block. Honest, you’ll add an extra digit to your ‘cool’ appeal just by walking through the doors. If you’re extra sneaky, you can even sneak your pup in with you for extra cool points… (But don’t tell them we said that).
164 Commercial Rd, Prahran
That pool though. You know the one. Glass bottomed and usually filled with smug holidaymakers floating on their superiority. Well guess what, YOU can be that smug sucker floating around without a care in the world. The Olsen is a little more than just that pool though. Arty, creative and may I say, sophisticated? Staying at the Olsen is like a little treat for the soul, a stay that is filled with space, world class art and complete luxury.
637-641 Chapel St, South Yarra
Black marble ensuites, rubber duckies and 111 rooms that even Kanye would approve of. While The Como is a little on the safe side, it has everything that you need for a damn good stay in South Yarra. As a part of the Sofitel group, you’d expect all of goodies that comes with an internationally renowned hotel empire – what you wouldn’t expect is the ROOFTOP pool. You could safely lounge away all day here, until it’s time to go shopping of course.

10 Claremont St, South Yarra
Apartment style accommodation with SO MUCH ROOM. Right in the heart of the Chapel Street Precinct you could take a morning stroll up to the Yarra and loop back via Adriano Zumbo Cafe for a morning croissant (or two). Not from around here? Grab a coffee from Two Birds, One Stone & vow to never drink bad coffee again.
9 Balmoral St, South Yarra
Hey, sharing a room with a whole bunch of strangers may not be for everyone. But if you’re little brother is pinching his pennies & needs a place to crash, this place is a winner. Back of Chapel is based in a renovated terrace house in the thick of Windsor. Windsor has most definitely bumped itself up a few notches over the years and is now THE place to be, or be seen. It’s prime partying territory and the next morning you’ll find coffee that will cure even the deadliest of hangovers. My tip? Head straight to School of 7 Bells, they’ll fix you right up.
