Recently spent a night at the Blackman Hotel in Melbourne, we stayed in a Studio Balcony Room. The rooms are very comfortable, excellent bed and small kitchenette. Very functional albeit small bathroom. The hotel has a small gym which is adequate with a good selection of equipment. Located just off St Kilda road there are a number of restaurants and cafes nearby, but it would be hard to go past the cafe in the lobby which has an excellent selection and was great for Sunday morning breakfast. The hotel is walking distance to Chapel St (20 min walk) and the CBD (30 min walk) which is great, but if you are not into walking the tram stop is less than 5 min away making getting around very easy.
