The hotel is located on St Kilda Rd about a 20 minute walk (or 5 minute tram ride) from Flinders Station. I stayed in one of the Studio Suite Balcony rooms with a view over St Kilda Rd. The room was quite spacious...

Check in to our room and on initial inspection, that the carpets are stained, mirrors filthy, curtains water stained and shower has mould. Once we got to bed that night we discovered that instead of having a quilt with a quilt cover, it simply has a flat sheet on bottom and flat sheet on top. So the quilt is easily...

If you're looking for a room for 2adults and 2kids, this might be the one for you. The room offers 2 separate sleeping areas with their own tv's. The room also has kitchenette and lounge area. Serviced by an above average Italian restaurant and a cool breakfast cafe, the Blackman offers something a bit different from the normal city hotel.
