We had 70 guests at our engagement party/surprise wedding here in the Garden Penthouse. It was amazing! The views overlooking Albert Park lake are phenomenal and the room is the ideal space for a function. For us they removed the couches etc, but these can be left in to fill the room for smaller groups. The staff were fantastic and... More

We stayed here on our wedding night for 2 nights. We were on the 16th floor and the room and views were amazing - everything was immaculate and the room was a generous size. We got in at 1am and were surprised with a bottle of champagne on ice and a lovely note from the hotel in our room -... More

We previously enjoyed a stayed at The Blackman so had no reservations about booking the hotel for a recent trip to Melbourne. The location is great; on St. Kilda Rd, tram stop is 2 minutes walk, and you can be in the city within a few minutes. It's also close to Albert Park for anyone visiting for the Grand Prix.... More

Needing to stay overnight in Melbourne recently, I chose to stay at the Blackman after a wonderful stay at the Art Series Watson in Adelaide. I was not disappointed. The room was spacious and well equipped with all the features you need for a weekend sojourn (including a comfy bed). We had no trouble finding fantastic coffee and restaurants nearby,... More

This was my third stay at the Blackman and really is my first go to hotel if I am staying in Melbourne. The bed always makes for an amazing sleep, I didn't have a lot to do with the staff or the bar down stairs, but the check in/out was fast and efficient. The views over Albert Park were great...

I stayed in the Blackman on more than one occasion but I last stayed their dec 2014. I must say it was a very nice stay the room was really clean and spacious and the staff could not be more helpful. Plus it is a five minute tram ride from the heart of melbourne.

Likes: Location and ease of access Quietness as it is just off St Kilda Rd, you don't get too much traffic noise. The beds! Staff very attentive. Dislikes: Hotel has a dark vibe to it. Rooms are...

The Blackman hotel is one of the best hotels I've stayed in. Its modern feel and funky design really sets it aside from your every day hotel. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too big or small form them to help you with. The beds are exceptionally comfortable rounded out with views over Albert park make this hotel... More

After my review last year management assured me they would lift their game. I chose the hotel for location and convenience for business visitors and my complaint last year centred around a business visitor being advised I was not staying in the hotel. The outcome was costly. The general manager met with me after this fiasco and assured me that... More
