We loved our stay at The Blackman.

We had a brief, one night stay at the Blackman Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were courteous and very helpful, the balcony studio was beautifully decorated, thoughtfully set out and had everything you could want, including lovely T2 teas. Everything was immaculately clean and the bed was extremely comfortable, with beautiful bed linen, providing an excellent night's sleep after our drive from Sydney. Breakfast next morning at the very conveniently located downstairs French cafe was delicious, with some marvellous, interesting choices. Overall a most enjoyable experience!

The design and vibe of this hotel are good, but there is a degree of form over function.

Top Notch Melbourne Hotel with serious style

I've been staying here for three years now; it is the only place in Melbourne I want to stay. Whilst not for the budget-conscious, it does provide amazing value for money in the size of the rooms, facilities, staff and service. It's just South of the CBD by Albert Lake so you can walk, jog, cycle - whatever outside exercise is your thing to provide that much needed break from a laptop. Great transport links outside front door and this time I hired one of the hotel's Smart Cars as I was staying over a weekend and headed South to Mornington and on. This is my perfect business hotel - I just wish they'd set more up.

The italian at the hotel is really pretty good and average price for Melbourne dining. The bar stocks a truly great range of whisky - and I'm Scottish.

Boutique Gem in Melbourne

this fabulous place sits just across the water from the CBD on the edge of Albert Park; I've stayed here 3 times on business now and find their rooms/mini apartments to be the perfect antidote to bland hotels and stark apartment blocks; is it the cheapest, no, but in terms of value for money nothing comes close; the staff are excellent; the food downstairs is good and reasonably priced; you can hire bikes for a blast round albert park or a smart car to explore further afield if you happen to have a day off or weekend to kill. I'm trying to get my wife to come out with me next time because she'd love it here.

grab a myki card and load it up (works like a london oyster card) Melbourne has lots of parks - try and book somewhere near a park esp if you're on business so you can stretch your legs and have a gentle stroll into the CBD - it's a feel good city so make the most of it plus it's great for clarifying ideas, presentation issues etc

Dissapointing 3 night stay

The Blackman stay was a drab and uninspiring event. A shame really considering we had booked for 3 nights and were hoping for the wow of the Olsen! Perhaps it was down to the lack of attention paid to us by the frontdesk who didnt bother to show any interest, or ask even if we enjoyed the stay. Perhaps it was the overpriced,salty, ordinary food from the restaurant, or perhaps it was the lack of pleasant and attentive house staff who always looked discouraged and exhausted. Sure there are lots of Blackman prints to look at, but frankly I can do that by staying home and leafing through a book: I didn't notice any originals but to be fair I didn't do the hotel art tour. Bedtime reading was impossible due to very bad lighting. And muted lighting is not what a person needs in the bathroom when trying to apply their makeup! It annoyed me a lot when i couldnt get help to reset the gym machine or turn on the TV in the gym. This is NOT a 5 star experience. Save your cash. Its definitely put me off trying any of the other Art Series Hotels.

no free internet

The hotel was good well situated comfortable all good. Except they charged for everything! There is no free internet even the water is charged from the first bottle and the most annoying charge was a 1.5% charge for paying with a credit card I thought that was a disgrace. American Express maybe but Visa Matsercard in a so called luxury hotel I just found that and the lack of internet a turn off...................................

A real Melbourne find

I almost don't want to write review as it will become more popular. This was my first visit to this hotel but I stay in Melbourne a lot - this is now my number one choice. The staff are lovely - nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant and bar are good to dine in for a single traveller as I was and the whisky selection is second to none (I'm a scotsman so I vetted it carefully). I also borrowed one of their Smart cars at the weekend to go to the beach - a truly great service (they have bicycles too). The room was large and the bed very comfortable. It was a great find and brilliantly located just 5 mins by tram from Flinders St - I will be taking my wife (who spotted it) to stay there next time and she's picky where hotels are concerned.

Hire the hotel Smart Car to go exploring further afield e.g. vineyards to edge of the Bay. They have 2 available, they cost a fraction of what the normal rental car hire cos charge and they are so economical on the fuel.
