Great Hotel just outside central Melbourne. Beds were wonderful and the floor plan of the twin share room was well thought out. The level of service was excellent and the cafe on the ground level - brilliant. We will be back again.

We stayed a night at the Blackman as a special treat. The hotel is superbly appointed. Our room had a view over Albert Park Lake in the foreground with Port Phillip in the background. The room was spacious and wonderfully set out - we particularly liked the designer glass wall and door to the bathroom There are two restaurants in... More

Overall this hotel was very good. The bed was absolutely awesome and I had one of the best sleeps ever in a hotel room. That is until I was awoken at 6am by someone talking extremely loudly on their mobile phone and smoking fags on the adjoining balcony. Who gets up before 6am on a Sunday morning ?!?!? So, the...

Was very impressed with the Blackman. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were among the best I've ever stayed in. Clean, stylish, and above all, comfortable. The beds were so good, we contemplated taking up the offer of 'most things are for sale.'

We went for a quick trip from Sydney for our anniversary and stayed at The Blackman. The staff were super helpful with directions and recommendations. The room was spacious and had that boutique feel. Such a convenient location - can't wait to try the other Art Series Hotels!

We stayed here over a weekend for our first year anniversary and couldn't of been happier with our choice of hotel. The room was modern and practical, the staff helpful and friendly and the location just far enough outside the city to be quiet. Having 2 wonderful restaurants in the building was fantastic as well. Very happy with our stay.

the blackman is a gorgeous hotel with wonderful facilities and great service. they even have a (paid) laundry room on each floor which was so convenient for travel. the location is an easy tram ride to the city or to st. kilda. the bed was incredibly comfortable and the room always clean.

Loved the artwork, very well appointed suite and comfortable bed. Close to the city and public transport. Helpful and friendly staff. Great place to stay. We were attending the Comedy Festival and found it was a great base - close to the city but a quiter setting than central city hotels.

This is our third stay, we find it a very easy place to stay at when we are in Melbourne. Clean and the beds are sensational. Staff very friendly. Very easy to get too off Kingsway. Thank you for making our stay very enjoyable.
