Stayed at the Blackman as have I tried the other Art Series Hotels. Arrived to the hotel around 9pm and wasn't sure what might of been in the area to dine. It is not really located around any restaurants. Ended up having a casual meal in the little restaurant off the foyer, which was perfect. I really enjoy the smaller... More

You shouldn't be disappointed with this Hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. A nice cosy bar downstairs and a French Patisserie as well. Rooms were clean and spacious. I have never really been big on see through bathroom doors that lead directly to the front door? Good Hotel just out of the CBD..

Great place to stay. Central, clean, nice rooms and good restaurant on the ground level. A bit alternative but a great change. The staff are very accommodating. My tip is to ask for a high floor and check out the bakery and Italian restaurant on the ground floor.

Central location with close access to trams in St Kilda road. Great views and refreshing stylish rooms and useable rooms . What more could you ask for. In house Italian restaurant serves really good food until 11pm. Really handy for supper and a few wines after a show. Great coffee and full breakfast next day. Ideal way to visit Melbourne.

We have just returned from a lovely stay at The Blackman in Melbourne. The front office staff were delightful -a credit to the hotel. They could not have been more helpful. Our room was beautifully decorated and it felt like a home away from home with beautiful books etc in the room. A great selection of in-house movies and room... More

If you would like to stay a little out of the city but with all the advantages of a city hotel, the Blackman is the place. It's just off St Kilda Road with trams going to the city every couple of minutes. The cafe is very popular and we had breakfast there once. The rooms are large and we'll set... More

I checked in early and was given a room in the 13th floor which had a terraced area big enough for a party. It looked it over the city on one see and Port Philip Bay on the other. The room was very comfortable and funky. I loved the Blackman prints and art books around the hotel. The staff were... More

A stunning hotel with extremely friendly staff. Great customer service when checking in/ out, extremely friendly and even offered to help us with our bags. Room was perfect, very clean, and extremely spacious. Reception were more than happy to organise a taxi, making our stay very relaxing and enjoyable. Highly recommend staying at this hotel!!!
