The hotel room was very artistic. I love the art pieces and the decor was very creative. I was very pleased with the room. The bathroom is small so its perfect for one person only. Everything in the bathroom is small even the shampoo quantity. My disappointment was with the check out service. I found out they charged my credit... More

We had a lovely stay at The Blackman. While it might not have the most amazing rooms or be in the absolute best location, the rooms are lovely and well equipped (best beds ever), and we had a lovely view over the bay. The location isn't particularly close to anything but if you have a bit to do its very... More

This hotel was recommended to me. What an awesome recommendation. From the moment you walk in reception you know it's different. it's covered in art. Literally floor to ceiling. We booked two rooms, the king junior suite and double junior suite. Great setup with kitchenette and funky furniture (different in both rooms). The double room had very distinct separate areas...

My friend and I had never stayed at an Art Series Hotel before, so understandingly we were a little unsure on what to expect from The Blackman on our 3-night first visit to Melbourne.

We've wanted to stay at an Art Series hotel for a while and very happy we finally have. Though we only did one night first time we will be back again very soon. The bed was superb the amenities excellent and the location is great. Can't wait to come back.

I stayed here when travelling for business. The hotel is well located near public transport and close to my place of work. Would definitely recommend for a longer stay as some rooms are equipped with a handy kitchenette. Attached Italian restaurant is great!
