From the moment we booked our room over the phone, the service was outstanding and so incredibly friendly. We received a gorgeous reception on arrival and a bottle of champagne for my sister's bridal shower celebrations - my Mum and I surprised my little sister with a special nights accomodation at The Blackman Art Series Hotel for her Bridal Shower!...

We stay at The Blackman whenever we are in Melbourne and are never disappointed. The rooms are all very well appointed with interesting features. The beds are the most comfortable you will find anywhere.

We've stayed here a couple of times and loved it. Superb location along St Kilda Road, easy walk into the City or catch the tram. Our room had a kitchenette...handy if you wanted to eat in..balcony with view...comfortable bed and plenty of space. We had dinner in the restaurant downstairs each visit...great food and service. Decor throughout includes stunning artwork...

We stayed in Melbourne for a short three night stay and decided upon our favourite family friendly accomodation. This hotel suits us perfectly and we love the fact that the one queen bed is in a curtained nook and the other is in the main part of the room. This added to the fact that there is a small kitchenette...

The hotel was conveniently located for us, with the city centre easy to get to by tram. The hotel room was luxurious and spacious, ideal for our needs. However, at check-in we felt that we were treated with indifference.For example, it would have been helpful to understand parking arrangements and amenities. Also, on one of our 3 nights the room...

This is a quirky little place in a great location. We’ve stayed twice and enjoyed both visits. Its small and very personal and the staff seem to be having fun and you can’t help but smile - especially at the front desk dude riding around the tiny lobby on a kids’ scooter! The junior suite that we stayed in this...

Our recent stay at "The Blackman" was excellent. We stayed in a studio apartment with a beautiful view across Albert Park Lake and further on to Port Phillip Bay. The apartment is small but very serviceable with large windows to take in the sweeping views. I loved the Blackman "touch" with prints and other references made to his fabulous work....

Great hotel, wonderful art throughout - there was a Alice in Wonderland theme when I visited. Our room was six floors up, had a balcony, was roomy and well designed. There's two restaurants either side of reception - the Italian was excellent (pasta and a Victorian red, v. good) the other less formal and open throughout the day. Staff on...

The hotel:1/5 It was most difficult to find as it was not on St. Kilda's Road, but on Arthur St. Being out of town, it was difficult to find. There was construction next door which didn't help.
