Had one night at the Blackman and was very satisfied with the entire experience. We got given a room that overlooked a construction site, one call to front desk and we were swiftly located to a new room with an upgrade, this was great customer experience to go out of their way for us. Highly recommended. Easy to get into...

Me and my partner stayed here for my 40th birthday for a long weekend. Excellent location close to tram stops on St Kilda Rd made 'The Blackman' a great spot for accessing central Melbourne. Cafe downstairs made THE best Eggs Benedict ever (according to my other half) and supplied the now obligatory Melbourne high quality coffee to start our days....

Just found a new preferred place to stay in Melbourne in the The Blackman. Great service, clean rooms, fantastic location and the cool art works help make this hotel a fantastic choice. There is a restaurant down stairs that was busy serving a good array of beers. I can't wait to return!

Loved this hotel. Brilliant location, amazingly helpful staff, great little restaurant downstairs that did the most amazing breakfasts, lovely clean rooms with very little noise thanks to the double glazed doors. But can we talk about the beds? OMG - beyond amazing! I thought it was kind of strange how many previous reviewers went on about the beds, but now...

So from the beginning : nobody helped with the luggage. Ok for me, no way for elder people. Staff Ok but not very helpful. Executive room with a view means a view on the building on the other side. Not romantic. But I could survive these. But just in front there is a construction site, a lot of noise from...

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.

“Ask for a room with a view over the Bay. If you are arriving by car pay the parking before you go into the hotel as the parking inspector waits across the road and will give you a thicket whilst you are inside checking in. ”
