Loved it! Paid just a little extra to upgrade to delux suite and room was fantastic. Very spacious and quite with peaceful private balcony. With blinds open we could relax on the bed and enjoy the views to the city. Very relaxed and casual feel to the Hotel.

The studio that we booked was fantastic with great facilities (fridge, microwave, hot plate etc) and lovely table settings. The art theme was interesting. What really made there hotel was the fantastic front desk staff, who were relaxed and yet offered great help and service.

Heres the thing about the Blackman. When i first saw it online i thought it was quirky and decided to give it a go because it was different. But OH MY GOODNESS! It was sublime. Its different. The beds are so comfy. It was a quiet location and the view over albert park and out to the coast were amazing....

We only stayed for one night but it was a quirky well appointed room with a great shower and really comfortable bed. The staff were friendly and helpful however the cafe downstairs was busy but served good food.

I have stayed at the Blackman almost 10 times for work and later leisure. The boutique modern styled rooms are a joy to relax in. The free car hire is amazing! Small smart car great for heading to the wine region. Hotel is located close to Albert park and trams to the city.
