My family and I stayed at The Blackman on a recent vacation and we loved the spacious, modern room with kitchenette, the spa like bathroom and the nice balcony with views of the surrounding city and parks. The hotel is conveniently located to restaurants, parks and walking distance to shopping. We took advantage of nearby public transportation options including hourly... More

Thank you so much for such a great feedback! Very happy to hear you enjoyed our location, it's the perfect spot to ride the bikes having the Albert Park so close and very convenient with the tram stop just on the other side of St Kilda Road. We hope to welcome you back on your next vacation! More

I reserved an expensive room with view on the bay. However a tower is in construction at 15 meters from the Blackman hotel (on the other side of a small street), in direction of the bay. Half of the view is on the construction and the noice is very loud. The workers begin early in the morning, thus it is... More

NickGouin, General Manager at Art Series - The Blackman, responded to this review

The facts about this review: - The photos that this guest has posted would support his argument about the view if only he was facing the bay. The bay and Albert Park lake are in fact to the left of the photo and are not obstructed by anything, apart from a lush green golf course. - The guest was not... More

Lovely spacious rooms, had a kitchenette, balcony, amazing beds, comfortable seating/breakfast area, super central location, friendly enough staff, they didn't acknowledge my presence and just spoke to my friend, but they were lovely to her, we also weren't informed that there was construction next door all weekend otherwise I'd give it 4/5. The rooms were relatively soundproof and earplugs were... More

Thank you for your feedback Mason. Generally speaking my team are very friendly, as you have stated. I doubt that they intentionally ignored you and have most likely spoken more to your friend if they were the one checking in. It's a great point and something I will address with the team for their ongoing improvement. With regards to the... More

This hotel is lovely. Nice presentation, beautiful artwork and cheeky humour found at Art Series & QT hotels. However, St Kilda is being developed - and 4 sites immediately around the hotel means it will be noisy for quite some time. Workers started at 0630 and at the time of writing - 1830 on a Friday afternoon - they continue... More

Thanks for taking the time to write this review. Unfortunately as you have said, there are construction sites at the moment around us and I apologize if this has affected your stay with us. We do our best in accommodating requests of a room away from the noise so I would encourage our guests to contact us at reception or... More

We stayed for 2 nights and the staff were so friendly and nice to our kids, particularly Brian who kept reminding us that there was free Ben and Jerry's ice cream for the kids in the lobby!

I have been lucky enough to stay in this hotel many times - both for work and pleasure. It has a homey feel, a nice eatery and great room service. Parking is excellent and they are happy to check you out in the AM and allow yo to leave your car until the afternoon.

Dear Lori, thank you very much for your terrific feedback! Great to hear you enjoyed your stay. The tram stop next door is really convenient if wanting to explore the city and with the good season coming up, great idea to ride our bikes through the gardens.

Overall, building and rooms were nice and clean, and modern feel. Management was very helpful and quick to address any extra needs (extra towels, other requests). Only downside was there was construction going on right beside us which we were not notified of (would be nice to know so that we can get a room on another side of the... More
