The Blackman is a beautiful hotel, in a quiet spot just off St. Kilda Road. The staff are professional, friendly and accommodating, going out of their way to ensure my daughter and I were comfortable during our two week stay. Even the smaller suites are well equipped with a kitchenette, including stovetop and a fridge large enough to store anything... More

Seriously, The Blackman is the best Hotel I have ever stayed in. The Bay Deluxe Studio Suite Balcony was the perfect layout and had the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Top this with fantastic views, an excellent Italian restaurant and professional staff. What more could you ask for?!?

We stayed over in a suite for a birthday weekend and had a fantastic time. Brendan at Front desk really looked after us — I was so grateful for all of the thoughtful, kind gestures that added to a great weekend. I was very pleasantly surprised by how well looked after we were. Thank you Brendan and guest services!

I had heard great things about the hotel but once I checked in I sure was pleasantly taken by surprise. But my experience started with the pre-checkin email and the features of this service. I travel extensively but have never come across this for hotels. This was such a refreshing change and what a great service! Loved the Alice in... More

I stayed here for 2 nights whilst on business. First impressions were great, the room was a good size. It had a desk for working, a nice big TV and large comfy chair for relaxing, it had a small kitchenette area and a clean bathroom, although the bathroom was rather small. On my first night I decided to do some... More
